Comments: Ben, it's a single pitch. There are actually three climbs in the picture. Sunshine Arete climbs the obvious arete to the climbers right and is 10b. Sunshine Face takes the center line right below the climber and goes at 10a. Then there is a crack climb to the left that is 5.9 at the start if you stay in the crack and eases to 5.7 above the bulge. All routes end at the same anchors.

Comments: They should never have been placed to begin with. Plenty of other crags in the area to lead climb.

Comments: Duh, Jeff will probably chime in when he gets a chance, it's his route and I believe it's 5.12 something or 11d. There are a few other routes in that area, Sunshine Arete is just past this route and has two 5.10's on it that Jeff and I put up last season, both are lots of fun.

Location: CA : Joshua Tree National Park : Echo Rock Area : Hidden Slab : Rodeo Doggie (5.10)

Comments: Tried to climb this yesterday. Climbed Private Eye and thought it was a lot of fun ad super clean. Moved over to give Rodeo Doggie a shot and was stumped at the roof. Where is the side pull, is it the flake off to the left of the roof? I can see where it could be mantled but at this point in the day I was feeling gassed and though I would leave it for another day and a fresh set of eyes. I'll be back.

Comments: Did this route yesterday, 1/15/16 with George Bracksiack. I really enjoyed this climb however i am inclined to think the move over the roof is harder than 10+. Except for that move over the roof the route is easy 5.10 and a must do.

Comments: Fun long climb, funky bolts near top that could stand to be replaced. Slick stone down low but the higher you get the less slick it gets.

Comments: Back in the 80's we used to climb the Pie Slice via the arete to the left of the bolted route. Follow the crack to the arete, sling a knob and gun it for the top. I remember the moves up the arete not being too hard just a little runout. Probably no harder than 5.9

Comments: I did both of these climbs yesterday afternoon and agree with Guy, I think YSDCC is closer to 10d. We didnt have a guide when we did it so we had no idea what the grades were for any of the climbs but we both thought it was hard 5.10 or 5.11.

We did Running Boards next, that top section was tough, fun but tough. I think that grade is right on. Fun long climb almost exactly 100'.

I started to do the route right of Running Boards but getting to and clipping the 3rd bolt sets you up for a BAD... more >>

Comments: I was up at Convict today looking at that part of the face and the long ridge to the left of your climb wondering if anything has been done on it. Strong work, cant wait to go check it out.


Location: UT : Zion National Park : East Side : Aries Butte : Led by Sheep (5.6)

Comments: Great fun climb for a rest day. We had bailed off Spaceshot the day before after getting stalled by a slow party on Pitch 6 so we were pretty bummed and looking for a fun easy climb to redeem the trip. Led By Sheep is a fun easy climb that would be a fun solo if the down climb wasn't so sandy. I'm taking my son up this when I come back in October. It's a great intro to multi pitch. The anchors are all solid and look to be glued in as do most of the lead bolts. Do not be scared off by ... more >>

Comments: Fun route, easy holds but provides a good pump. Made me realize what a fat tub-o-lard I am. This wall is totally manufactured and they did a good job at it. Thanks for the hard work.

Comments: I skipped the first bolt and just slung a horn slightly up and to the left of the first bolt. The first bolt is in kind of a funky spot.

Comments: I put this route up with help from Kelley Mayr probably around 1992. It was one of the last routes I did before getting into other pursuits.

Comments: I started to get back into climbing again this past year after a 10 year "break", having kids will do that I guess. I saw Absolute Zero last week while I was out there for the day and jumped on it and was pleasantly surprised to fire it first try, stuck a purple Totem Cam in the crack before the last bolt giving me a little extra courage. This was a good example of JT slab climbing.

Comments: Climbed it today using a Microtraxion for self belay while my 12 year old son practiced jugging right next to me. Great anchors and easy access. Fun climb.
