Comments: I like to link the first two pitches of Brain Full of Spiders and then the third pitch of Feral Debutantes or Good Plantains (both of which have a stellar third pitch) and then head over to Trilogy.

Comments: Most of the routes listed on this wall are a bit easier than what is listed for them. I originally listed this as .10b because that was the information given out at the local climbing shop. This one felt right in the neighborhood so I left it as it was given. But yeah, overall most of the routes are easier that what is listed.

Comments: Probably the first thing to do would be to go to Mountainworks and ask about Santaquin. You'd probably find out some good information that they can share. One of the main things you'd find out is that the first ascencionists don't want their route information published in a guide book or on a website anywhere, otherwise they'll go up and remove the bolts.

Another good thing to do is to only put up information on routes that you've actually climbed.

Comments: This route is still pretty dirty, esp at the top. Those loose blocks at the top would definitely ruin your day if they decided to cut loose while you were climbing it. The crux is a little perplexing: big moves of small holds that aren't obvious. Once you clip that fourth bolt the crux is essentially over, you just have to hang on over the loose blocks.

Comments: You're definitely a sick man James. That accident must have put something sinister inside you.

Having said that, climb these things now because you don't know how long they're going to be standing. I would recommend rapping off them rather than lowering.

Comments: It's dated but, yes, there is a guide book.

Rumors are that Darren Knezek has a new one in the works.

Comments: This route hasn't seen much traffic so there were a few smaller holds that were tenuous and weak. This should clean up quickly though.

Comments: This is actually the second canyon east of Dry Wall, but is exactly .7 miles east of the Dry Wall parking spot. jfchand, it sounds like you were in the right canyon but just couldn't find the route. It's pretty much as James said, except I didn't see anything that looked like an arete either. I had to spend about 30 mins bushwhacking around to find it and binoculars made the difference.

The route is toward the northern end of the big wall on the west side of the canyon. The route faces southeas... more >>


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Rock Canyon : Green Monster Slab : Green Monster (5.9)

Comments: The rap rings at the top of Green Monster are quite worn in two places (opposite sides of the ring). Rappelling off this route instead of lowering on the rings would be smart. As this route gets a lot of beginner traffic, please make sure you're top-roping off your draws and not the rings.

These rings would be a good candidate for replacement if someone has the time and means.
