Comments: Linked it down to 4 pitches (with a 60m) as Andy describes except the top of our P3 was in the notch just before the knife-edge. This allowed the belayer to see the leader for most of P4 which was nice. Great route!

Comments: I would recommend going from west to east, since the best scrambling was on the west side of dromedary and monte cristo, and its more fun/easier to ascend rather than down climb these portions. encountered a few sections of low 5th class but could be avoided if desired by deviating a little bit off the ridge.

Comments: Cool route. certainly not X or R rated. there is abundant pro in the crack at the lowest portion of the tiered roofs (but as Stan and Brian mention, make sure to back clean and extend to minimize the rope drag) If you traverse lower on the face as I believe Jayson is describing, then yes there is no pro.

Comments: For those without approach shoes (such as myself) - I did this route in trail running shoes and felt comfortable sticking to the knife-edge proper the entire time except for one short section - a short finger crack through a mini-bulge near the top of the exposed portion of the ridge. it looked like 2 moves with slabby feet (I bypassed on climber's L on comparably steep & exposed terrain but with better feet).

All the other 4th/low 5th class terrain on the ridge proper was very juggy and had... more >>

Comments: A heady lead for the 5.8 leader. upper portion felt like solid 5.8, great route. I topped out the wide crack to the top, belayed from above with gear anchor and then descended via rappel from 2-bolt anchor to climber's left.

Comments: This route makes for a nice simul-climb. Can give the leader a real belay through the pitch one 5.6 crux (readily apparent from the ground) and then have the second start climbing. The overwhelming majority of this route is 5.3 or easier. Route gets nice morning shade.

Comments: Wow! pitch 2 is one of the best, coolest pitches of rock I have ever climbed - exposed jug-hauling on huge chicken heads! Crux is at the last bolt. Gaining the first bolt (pitch 2) is much easier than it looks. Can place a #3 or #4 camalot before the bolt if you like. Highly highly recommended!

Comments: Pitch 2 is incredible!! 5.8 jug hauling on a very exposed arete. Route faces west and thus gets afternoon sun. I found a #1 camalot useful for the pitch 1 runout and think that a shorter climber might want a .4 or .5 on the second pitch to protect the moves before the 3rd bolt. Can easily be climbed on just the bolts though. Highly recommended!


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Ogden : Ogden Canyon : Utah Wall : Utah Crack (5.6)
By: Andrew Mayer When: Jun 7, 2015

Comments: Pitch one is fun and recommended. Pitch 2 is not as enjoyable, due to the need to test nearly every hold prior to using. More solid than it looks but still a little unnerving. protects fairly well on small gear. 2-bolt anchor with chains if you trend a little left at the top. easy 2 rappels to the ground.
