Location: WY : Grand Teton National Park : Mount Moran : CMC Route (5.5)
By: Andrew Mayer When: 3 days ago

Comments: This route is a great in-a-day solo for those with the requisite fitness and soloing comfort. Spencer's soloing in-a-day beta described above is GREAT.

Also, to elaborate on the bushwhack beta from Scottso - I ran the initial 4 flat trail miles to just before the W shore of bearpaw lake. approx 100ft past the small footbridge, turn W off the trail and follow intermittent game trails (some bushwhacking necessary but never too bad) up to approx. 7700ft. then begin sidehilli... more >>

By: Andrew Mayer When: Aug 16, 2016

Comments: Great route! Highly recommend linking the 5.8 finger crack with the easier pitch above all the way to the bolts out right on the slab. Easily done with a 70m rope and double rack and makes for a long money pitch.

Walkoff beta (if not continuing up the buttress) - from the trees, scramble up & left via a fixed line to gain a prominent right-angling 4th class gully system. scramble up this (passing memorial ledge on your left) to its terminus. follow the well traveled path to the right till ... more >>

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!


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Wasatch Alpine Areas : Mt. Superior / Monte Cristo : The Cottonwood Traverse (Easy 5th)

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.
