Comments: If someone does not beat me to it I will change out the anchor on the second rappel.

Comments: This climb was really gritty and it was a lot harder than 9+. A good example is the start of tarzan is 10a and I cand do tarzan no problem but every time I tried the crux my feet would grit off and the fall is onto a ledge (the climb was not worth the risk of injury to me). I am not sure why the bolt line did not contunue up the nice slab.

Comments: This climb is a lot of fun. I thought it was closer to 5.9, it is definatly harder than muffin top.

Comments: Your Welcome The traditional slung tree top anchor led to alot of rock fall on the climber/belayer below and if you rapelled from there just pulling the rope could bring some rocks down. I know this was probablly all climbed before but the new bolt lines we added allow you to climb some really fun otherwise unprotected terrain above. We will post some topos and updates in the near future.

Comments: Fun climb we felt like it was easily 5.8 and would be a very stout lead for a beginer.


Location: ID : City of Rocks : Site 18 : Looker (5.8)

Comments: I agree this is much harder than 5.8 infact I was just there and based on the guide book looker is the far left route and there is no climb left of it but it could easily be rated 10a. Also the picture posted does not look like the correct route. Looker is more slabby and less petina.

Comments: Why more traffic? That is a good question. I also enjoy the solitude but the climbs and trails seem to grow over by the time I climb them again so I thought they would clean up very well with more trafic. I think the 4x4 access may keep some of the crowds down. I can still count on one hand how many times I have seen another climber up there.

Comments: This climb was short but a lot of fun. take long slings for the ancors or draws and slings. There is easy access to the top to clean your anchors when you are done.

Comments: It is nice to hear some one went up to checkout marryellens gulch. My appoligies on the trail every year I try to re-establish the trail but this year I have not made it up yet. Sometimes you can connect deer trails up to the wall.

Comments: We trundled the big block and a lot of loose rocks at the fist belay it should be safer now. we also cleaned up the rest of the belays as much as we could but there are still some loose rocks.


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Little Cottonwood Canyon : Commitment Buttress : Direct Commitment Variation (5.7)

Comments: Fun climb, you can start from the ground on the left angling crack Which protects very well with a standard rack, to a small roof the crux (well Protected). Then climb strait above to an old 1/4 inch bolt continue up the easy (5.4/5.5) slab for about 50 feet little to no pro The R portion of the climb. Belay at the commitment ledge with the bolt. There are 2 more pitches of commitment to the top of the buttress.

Comments: Description: This was another onsight first ascent it was origionally R but a bolt was added latter. But the pro on this climb is verry tricky. crux is at the bolt. Just fallow the big black trough in the middle of the Long Wall.

Location: 10 feet right of tailings.

Pro: 1 bolt then Rps, small to medium pro use pro for anchor then wrap hunter orange or sport minning.

Comments: This climb is 6 pitches if you go all the way to the top.

p5 5.6 from the bolt belay ledge. Climb up and left to a thin crack, then past a bush to a right facing corner at about 90 ft up where the corner becomes a roof to the right is a two bolt anchor.

p6 5.5 climb the right facing corner 5.5 well protected. Be careful of loose rocks below the tree belay. 80ft.

You can acctually rap the route now with a single 70m, or 2 ropes for the rap to the ground.

Comments: Fun climb and great access route to book of prophecy. I actually combined the 2 for a long fun climb. Just use lots of long runners to decrease rope drag.


Location: UT : Saint George : Prophesy Wall : The Book of Prophesy Var. (5.8)
By: Mary Ellen Man When: Nov 29, 2011

view comment >>
Comments: This climb was a lot of fun I combined the left bolt line on breaking the sabeth with book of prophesy for one long climb. Lots of fun, just use alot of long runners and rope drag should not be a problem at all. My largest cam was a #4 cam but the run out (about 15 feet) was not bad. The crux is before the crack widens and protected well with a #1 Cam.

Comments: My Wife and I climbed this on 10/20/2011 and enjoyed it very much. It was not in the guide book so we just jumbed on it. I thought it was a little easier that 10b if you are tall (9+/10a) but my wife who is shorter than me will agree with the 10b rating.
