Comments: I thought this was a totally cool route with great position on the arete and cryptic moves. Josh mentions it in the description, but I'll reiterate that you take the juggy hand traverse left from Pony Express (do not continue up the right-facing corner). I was a little a nervous to do this traverse, because I didn't have great gear to start and the crack that you might protect is a little crumbly, but it was EASY! Place a finger-sized piece at the end of the traverse as you start to move up towa... more >>

Comments: Two bolts were added to make this a more reasonable lead. Easy to set a toprope/hang draws after doing Wear Cattle.

Comments: Really fun, flowy movement and very worthwhile if you're up there for Stone Love and Discipline. If only it were taller! Thanks for the route, guys!

Comments: Hey Steve, there's a fixed nut where the 0.75 goes right now, so that's what my partner clipped with a long sling before starting the traverse. I agree - that was a rowdy core shot for a pretty standard fall!

Comments: Get your burl on for this one! Black Snake is a quality 5.11 rock climb, with no pitch being a gimme. We were happy with doubles from black Alien to #2, 3 x #3, 1 x old #3.5, 1 x new #4, 1 x new #5, single set nuts. It's not a desert splitter, so the sizes in the bigger ranges are flexible. Even thought this climb has only 8 pitches, I'd recommend giving yourself plenty of daylight. It's on 'til the end!

Comments: Approach: from the Visitor's Center, park in a small, right-side pullout at the 20mph curvy road sign in between Devil's Lookout and Chasm View Overlook. A well-trodden trail descends right from here down the Chillumstone Gully. Descend several hundred feet down the gully (takes longer than you might expect), until you get cliffed out. Locate a rappel anchor on the right wall with a fixed line (didn't need 2 ropes as it turned out). From this rappel anchor, you can scope Blackjack, which is acro... more >>

Comments: This route is absolutely stellar! The line ascends a shield of crisp red rock, starting in pebbles and then launching into thin face that would've looked blank without the preexisting chalk. The climbing was reminiscent of Fire and Ice in Eldo - footy, sequential, and difficult. Lots of shade!

Comments: Fantastic! The traverse is interesting and sustained, and the crux through the bulge is quite powerful. It's somewhat of a reach to make the 2nd clip (extendo cheater draw helped me). Thanks for the route, guys!

Comments: Fantastic voyage up the heart of the Sparks Wall! Powerful fingers for the first 40 feet gives way to some easier terrain, then difficult thin hands through tiered roofs, and finally classic hands in a fantastic position.

I was happy with the following rack: 1 blue Metolius, 3-4 yellow Aliens, 3 x .4 camalots, 2 red Aliens, 3 x .5 camalots, 1 x .75 camalot, 5-7 x #1 camalots, 2 x 2.5 friends, 4-5 x #2 camalots, 1 x #3 camalot

Comments: Save a few blue Metolius TCUs for the very top (or similar size). I used 4 up there.

Comments: Loved this climb! Excellent, especially if you're looking for something unique and wild.

A healthy rack is: 2 x #2 camalots, 2-3 x #3 camalots, 1 x #4 (new) 1 x #4 (old), 2 x #5 (I used new camalots, but old would probably work also), 1 x #6. It was nice to have a 48 inch runner and several slings. I did not find anywhere to place a #1 camalot. DO IT!!!

Comments: I've only done P2, coming in from Apple Strudel. Thought it was excellent, good amount of excitement, until the last bolt. I ended up going straight right into a left-facing corner, which is NOT the correct way to go. After rapping the route, I'd suggest going straight up. Looked like you could place a medium-large nut about 8 feet above the last bolt and continue to the tree anchor. I'd give P2 a PG-13 rating.

Comments: After the crux at the bolt, you can place a finger-sized piece or nut in a crack near the Bastille Crack attached with a double-length runner.

Save a 0.75, red Alien, and yellow Alien for the top.

Comments: Really interesting and fun route - each crux was very different from the next. The middle one can be done rather bizarrely, which I quite enjoyed.

Comments: Agree with all the above comments... stellar, especially P1. On P1, the blue Metolius TCU size was money. I had 3 and would have placed 4 had I had it. I'd add a very optional purple C3 for P3.

Comments: Wow! My favorite pitch at The Waterfall thus far. Vision quest for me for sure, and I agree, felt as though I'd climbed three or four pitches by the anchor. I didn't use anything larger than a red #1 Camalot.
