Comments: I was told by some people climbing this route today that they had heard it is rated 5.11c/d. Maybe I was having a low gravity day, but it felt more 5.11b-ish to me.

I have replaced the original crappy hardware on this route with good 1/2" by 3 1/2" powerbolts in the steep section and 3/8" by 3 1/2" powerbolts in the slabby section. I didn't have time to replace the last bolt or one of the two anchor bolts, so ma... more >>

Comments: This route is terribly manufactured. The majority of the holds are drilled pockets. To make matters worse, the pockets seem to be drilled at random making for awkward movement throughout.

Comments: "long moves between positive albeit slopey holds..." I don't quite get this, I thought that positive was the opposite of slopey, therefor, if a hold is positive it can't be slopey, did you mean to say big albeit slopey holds? Just curious about what is meant by this statement.

Comments: I agree that this route isn't 5.11b, but I think the comment above by Super Fluke is kind of funny since a V2 equates to about 5.11a, so it's a V2 boulder problem, but no way it's harder than 5.10b, that makes a lot of sense!


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Logan : China Wall : Unknown 5.11a?? (5.11a)

Comments: Not sure if this is correct or not, but I think this is the route that starts just left of the river. On the far right side of the china wall is a prow that sits in front of the main wall and has several routes on it, the first is facing the main china wall and I believe it is called viable options, the second is around the arĂȘte and has a homemade hanger for like the third bolt. This route is the third route on this prow and begins between the route with the homemade hanger and the river, an... more >>

Comments: Doesn't look at all like galvanic corrosion, looks like uniform corrosion of a non-stainless bolt.

Comments: Wow, is this the worst area description on MP.

"Getting there: See area overview", umm, this is the area overview.

Comments: The only way this one is .11b is if you use a sidepull crimp way left of the bolt line. If you go straight up the bolt line it's at least .11c or d.

Comments: Not sure if anyone has named this route before, so if someone has, let me know and I'll change it. I just figured that since this shares the start with Like Pull'n Teeth, but only shares the first half of the difficulty and is easier than Like Pull'n Teeth, it is more like Pull'n a tooth;)

Comments: Not sure if this has been named before as I'm sure someone has climbed it before me. If you know of the actual route name or the first ascent let me know so I can update the info.

Comments: Not exactly sure as 5.10b and 5.10c feel about the same to me, but FWIW, the book lists this one as 5.10c.

Comments: Not sure as I'm not there, but they certainly look natural in the photo. If you haven't noticed, the manufactured holds at the quarry are all filled with glue to smooth them out. It's quite hard to manufacture a smooth hold without using that technique, so check it out and see if they are filled with glue or not. If you're not sure what I mean head back to the quarry and take a closer look at the manufactured holds.

Comments: What makes you think that anything in that photo is manufactured? Everything looks natural to me just based on what I can see in the photo.

Comments: Great route, but much harder than the 5.12a/b rating. The opening crux sequence is super polished and slippery and I wouldn't argue with a 5.12c rating at all.

Comments: Wow, that thing looks horrible. That's about the worst position possible for holding the biner if you want to actually be able to clip a bolt with it, also, how are you supposed to clip a rope into an already hung draw with that thing?

Comments: I think that B Roth is confused and meant to say Soft in place of sandbagged. If you read the rest of the comment that's what makes based on the context. I think we all know that Chuckwalla is about as far away from being sandbagged as possible.

Comments: Wow, I don't agree with most of the description for this climb. This is honestly the most fun route I have ever done. The rock may look kind of chossy, but all the holds felt solid and the rock quality actually felt really good. As far as the movement being boring, I highly disagree, you want boring movement go climb Namaste in Kolob canyon, this route has pretty much every type of movement you could imagine and the climbing feels very 3-d and fun.

As far as the rating, the guidebook gives i... more >>
