Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Rock Canyon : Bad Bananas : Brain Full of Spiders (5.9)

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: Sad news: Looks like El Amate is now closed. Went there on 2011-12-10 and looked like it was being renovated for a new business.

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.


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Santaquin Canyon : The Main Wall

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)
By: jtwalter When: Jun 3, 2010

view comment >>
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.

Comments: If you're looking for a nice local spot to eat at after climbing at Prophecy Wall stop in at the Red Dog Cafe in Dammeron Valley. They're a family run restaurant that specializes in burgers, steaks, and quality BBQ. The homemade pies are great.

Comments: There are several multi-pitch routes listed here on MP:

Eight to Eleven - .11b 2 pitch
Old School - .10b 2 pitch

I hear there's a 2nd pitch to Stoic Calculus that is around .10a or .10b.

Suspect is an .11d 4 pitch route on B-52 Wall across the stream from Hell parking lot. There's also another route there that's listed ... more >>

Comments: I would definitely second the idea about rappelling from the anchors. The serrated edge at the top of the climb that the rope goes over is evil incarnate.

Comments: This route was pretty fun climbing, but a hammer and a broom could be put to good use on it.

Comments: Climbed this on Saturday right before the storm rolled in. The really small but critical left foothold when going through the roof at the last bolt broke when I stepped on it. Guess I need to shed a few pounds.

Comments: I think you're referring to Beehive. It's like a .12b or something. Here is a photo of the route I think you're referring to : mountainproject.com/v/utah/was...

Comments: I don't know if it was because I was so gripped or because I was climbing with a pack on, but pulling over the first roof felt pretty stout to me. The holds right over the roof are pretty big, but the exposure increases the pucker factor. There is pretty loose rock on this route still. I pulled off some fairly large rocks pulling over the last roof. Fun climbing and great exposure.
