Asking for shoes because of long belays? I take my shoes off and clip them to the anchor. I've also had a partner take along his "decent flip flops" because he didn't want to rap in sticky r

Comments: Not sure if you can see, but in the center of the photo is a fallen detached free standing totem pole of ice. This event happened while I was Ice Bouldering.
Yikes!!

Comments: This is a good photo. It's worth framing. If I were in it, I definitely would like this hanging on my wall.

Maybe you are trying to make a joke of someone else's picture. In that case, we're good.

Comments: The last ten feet I have to dyno for the big hold just down and right of the chains. Then again I'm short. This route has it all! Everything from thin fingers, big slab friction, full horizontal fisting in a roof/crack (Start), and a crazy layback at the top. I LOVE THIS ROUTE!

Comments: Hey Cory!
Nice hike. This is one of three ice routes here in Idaho!
I'm living in Albion outside of the "City". Look me up we should share a rope like old times!

Comments: Fun climb. The top 50 feet is run out 5.6 climbing to the chains. Only one crux down low. Red Rib is nice because it has two cruxes. Still a good route if your in the area.

Comments: Good slab climb with lots of features to grab and stand on. I wanted to clim this to get the points for the "City Slicker" award at the first "Idaho Mountain Fest". I ended up free soloing the route then rapping from the second pitch.

Comments: Totally bonkers to lead. If you're not feeling it, climb funky bolt then tension traverse over to the chains. This route is friction dependant. NO hands and just steep feet for the first 4 bolts. Maybe you wana stick clip the second bolt to avoid a sprain or worse. With more traffic the route will polish and get even harder.

Comments: Want Advice?
1) I STRONGLY ADVISE SCOUTING OUT THE FIRST 30 MINUTES ABOVE CMC CAMP.
2) Leave camp no earlier than 4am.
3) As always watch out for thundershowers around noon.
4) Pack yer gear after you check in at Jenney Lake and get your required bear can and permits.
5) Early in the season means melt water near camp.
6) Sticky rubber trail shoes are perfect. Sport shoes are good for beginners. Take comfy shoes for the walk off and rapp's.
The other trip reports are worth while to read, but th... more >>

Comments: After the 1.5 hour drive from Home, We started at 5am. I left 1 liter in the car and took 3 liters with me. We followed the Egan's advice and found it 95% right on the money. I added a Google Earth image to highlight the "trail" from the Parking lot. Here's my approach beta;
Head down to the view point favoring the lefthand railing. At the bottom of the cement stairs, hop the left metal railing, look down and you'll see the landmark tower in the Coconino formation. Work your way right ... more >>

Comments: LEATHER GLOVES BABY! The thicker the better. As said before once at the bottom of the fixed rope (which is easy to find) stay close to the cliff base for easier travel.
