Comments: Fun roof section. The grainy nature of the rock make it hard to pull past that lip!

Comments: For some historical information: during the war, families were given different flags depending on if their son(s) were alive or dead. You were given a Gold Star flag for those who died in Combat. In order to honor the fallen, a giant Gold Star flag was hung between the entrance to Goldstar Canyon. To do this, they suspended a large chunk of solid wire across the gap. One side being secured to this Tower and the other side to the cliff line and tower group on the West side of the canyon.

Comments: Steven, Upper Mighty Mouse/ Space Balls wall stays in the shade until mid to late afternoon. Quarry Wall is usually good until about 1pm depending where along the cliff you are. Mothers and Sunday Wall go into the shade in the later afternoon.

Comments: If you continue past the anchors as either a single long pitch or as a second pitch, there is a worthwhile, bolted face up great rock. A bolted anchor can be found at the next obvious ledge. Probably 5.10.

Comments: Another great Monument adventure. Pitches one and two have some great climbing! Three gets a little loose and bird poop filled. The last pitch is pretty wild and super fun.

We used the following: singles from #0.3(maybe 2) to #0.5; triples from #0.75- #2; double #3; singles from #5-#6. We brought a Valley Giant 9 and did not use any Bigbros, but Bigbros would work. You can get a six in pretty quickly after turning the roof.... more >>

Comments: The extension is no more. Pulled the left hand in-cut crimp off last night. Big bummer!

Comments: Though the guidebook gives this a rating of 12+, both my partner and I think that it warrants a harder grade. The guidebook also states it has a single bolt anchor, but there are actually two. You be the judge! To take the death out of getting to the first bolt, climb Burnt Beautician and clip the first bolt on the rappel.

Comments: Climbing to the first of the good gear is quite heady. Upon close examination, two bolt holes were found of which the studs had been broken off of. At least one of these will be replaced next time up there. Until then, be careful!

Comments: Going straight up from a sit start from the two large pockets is a worthwhile variation. Stick a small sloper, and slap for a jug knob.

Comments: After looking through the book, there is a possibility that this is actually the route, "Hairdresser on Fire" labeled as a 5.13? Project. However I have my doubts because a few feet to the left is a line with some smashed hangers and empty holes. The route that exists now goes higher than the book describes and has a few copper heads en-route which was typical of Jim Beyer. The hanger smashing was sometimes typical of him as well.

Comments: Glad you had a good time on the route. I would caution that the majority of these routes, presumably put up by Beyer, that I have posted have such run outs as you noted and sometimes quite longer. Enjoy!

Comments: I guess it depends how much walking you are prepared to do. The only camping is up on Divide Road, and you could walk to Quarry and Divide Walls from there, but other crags are quite a ways away. No centralized or other places exist unless you go way towards Gateway because of a lot of private property. Two weeks in Unaweep, didn't know we have arrived as a destination!?

Comments: The choss guarding the upper section is well worth the price to access this amazing, zig-zag splitter on a great face. Pull down not out on the lower section!

Comments: A nice steep arete with some great movements. Be careful clipping the tenuous 3rd bolt, as blowing it lands you in the sharp rocks below! The last move is pretty sweet! (edit) As per Alex a perma-draw was added to the 3rd bolt from the ledge for easier clipping. Thanks!
