Location: UT : Wasatch Range : American Fork Canyon : Forgotten Trails

Comments: A good approach as of 2014-2016: Park at the pull out after that for the Hell Area. Head down to the river and go up stream until you find a series of down trees and log debris piles in the river. Find your way across these logs. Nothing sketchy and there are several options depending on the water level. At the other side of the river, head right and look for the campfire ring. Do not follow the faint mistake trail that goes directly up the scree from the river crossing. The well estab... more >>

Comments: I thought this route climbed really nicely. Brad's comments are spot on. This route deserves a bit more traffic, and will clean up nicely. All the key holds are solid, but you have to be careful with the flags to the left as there's a fair amount of small choss waiting to be knocked loose.

Comments: The difficulty probably depends on how much stemming you decide to do. I tried to not stem at all, but chickened out in one spot. The rock on the face is quite good, but dirty. The rock quality on the wall that you stem on is less than perfect.

Comments: Rock quality on this one is pretty good (by AF standards). Everything you need is solid, just watch out if you get a bit sloppy on the footwork. Like most routes here, with enough traffic, it will be super clean. As of 8/16, looks like someone has a project going for the extension. Looks sick!

Comments: There are 2 cruxes. One above the 3rd bolt, and one above the last. The first is very thin as you pull on to the slab and a soft catch is needed if you blow it so you don't hit the slab below the bulge. The top crux has excellent rock and requires a calm head as you realize that you are on your feet the whole time. A very unique route!

Comments: A really nice climb! Felt crazy hard at first, but quickly climbs down once you figure out the body positions to use the holds. The finish is great!

Comments: As of 7/16, this route has cleaned up quite nicely. We encountered nothing loose, although the bottom holds were still a bit sandy here and there. This makes a nice long warm up with practically no approach if you are camped along the road.

Comments: I lost my Maple Canyon guidebook on the right fork trail on the afternoon of Saturday, 7/16. It apparently had fallen out of my pack on the way down the trail and I didn't realize it until the next morning at camp. Friends had spotted it on the way down after me, but didn't realize it was mine. It was gone when I went back to look for it in the morning,

It is pretty easy to ID. Its full of markups inside from me and is held together with a duct tape sp... more >>

Comments: This route climbs way better than it looked like it might. The chert on the upper slab is rad!

Comments: Start on bolt line to the right of the start of Hybrid and Mad Choss Disease. Links into Hybrid at the rail, finishes on Hybrid. Originally rated 13a, I agree with that.

Comments: For clarity, same start as Mad Choss and Hybrid. Climb Hybrid to the 3rd bolt, follow Hybrid, but clip the left bolt before climbing the the rail of Hybrid. At the rail, traverse back left to reach the line of bolts that heads into the black water groove just to the right of Mad Choss Disease.

Comments: per the original topo, this line is called "Random RX (RX)" and is listed at 13c. As of 6/16, it still goes. Starts to the right of Chostakovitch and climbs its own discrete line to the anchors above the cave. This is the second longest route at the Choss Cave excluding link ups.

Comments: Per the original topo for the cave, this route is in fact The Blight. It was rated at 13b/c. The route is in poor shape at the present.

Comments: Update: Found the original topo for the cave. This line is in fact Cow Belly, however the original rating was 12d/13a. I would tend to agree.

Comments: This is the longest route in the cave that is not a link up. Mostly very good holds. Climbs more like a Compound route at Maple Canyon than a Choss Cave route. Climb up to the low horizontal break, then past some glued pockets. The crux is between bolts 4 and 5 linking side pulls and undercling flakes. After that, bomber jugs and fun climbing to the finish to its own anchor about 10 feet above the anchors for RX. Very fun moves, although it is currently very dirty. I don'@SEMICO... more >>

Comments: I've come here for a few years, and was always told that this route was a turd. Its actually not a bad warm up for the fingers and the rock is very clean. Worth getting on if you are looking for a more gradual warm up.

Comments: I believe the traverse that links into Cowbelly is Infinite Choss. FA. Chuck Odette. Per 8a.nu, he gives this one 5.13c. This makes sense. The common traverse that most locals do is the Warm Up into Hybrid. Probably 13a.

Comments: This route is starting to clean up, but still by no means a classic for the crag. The 4th bolt can be a little tricky to clip until you find the proper position. Easier with a double draw. Anchors are also hard to get in a position to clip. Fun moves, even a rose move! Originally called Zig Zag, and rated 12d, however "glue pocket express" is pretty good!

Comments: This route continues up to its own set of anchors at the lip. I believe some holds may have broken around bolt 3 as the rock is fairly fragile. As of 5/16, a key undercling broke off at the current crux. Cool moves after the crux, but there are better routes up here to challenge yourself. Also, bolt 3 is suspect, the rock below the bolt is gone and a good portion of the bolt is exposed.

Comments: sorry buddy, I don't. I've done most of the routes in this area, but it was a long time ago. If there's something specific that you are looking for, I'd be happy to try to see what I can recall for you.

Comments: The large block on the edge of the arete above the 4th bolt is going to come off sooner or later. I've been on this route a few time over the years and it felt solid. As of 11/15, this thing is moving. Pretty scary since you grab it, yard outward on it, and then mantle on top of it! You can easily avoid it by just finishing to the right on Flirting with Mutants in which case you only need to stand on the block to gain the anchors.

Comments: The hold up there did certainly break. As of late fall 2014, the original crimp was gone, but a fragile "twinkie" hold remained. This is now gone as well (11/15) I believe the hold is sitting under the route on the small shelf. Now, it still goes, but I'm going to say that its a fair bit harder and probably no longer 13a. It looks like some of the twinkie hold is still there in the video posted, but what is left now is just a sandy sloper. The remaining hold looks fairly stable and could p... more >>
