Don't venture right at the top for full value.

Comments: I don't think so EO.. Standing up on the right foot to go to the crimps on P.A. The holds for the 7/8 are further around the corner. Same start tho!

Comments: Is it possible to get conditions report for the spire approach? Anyone know if the approach slabs are covered by snow? We hope to climb this Sunday.

Comments: This may not actually be very Pg13 anymore. Sometime between this Spring and this Fall the tree has started to fall into the pond and isn't as much of a hazard. It was a wet spring so maybe the extra amount of water hitting it and unrooting it?.. that, slackliners or brahdo's. That being said the topout is still a tall MF so check it.

Comments: I got on this line yesterday and I must say it may be one of the best, hard single sport pitches in the Moab area. It has everything.. huge dead-points, dyno's, kneebars, heel-hooks, finger locks, culminating with some cryptic 5.11 slab to the anchors. Wow.. grade is probably somewhere in the mid 13 range.

Comments: Is this on the actual rock wall or is it a boulder? I haven't looked for it but have been playing on the obelisk. I like the solitude you get with these boulders.

Comments: Did the intermediate crimp before the pocket on the upper crux break? Looks like it was used to get the right hand to the 3 finger pocket before but it wasn't there today...

Comments: I think the key foot broke on this recently which allowed the palm press and cross through. Not sure how this thing will climb now.

Comments: I think everyone is reading just fine.

It's just not a good idea. When the Colorado Mountain School bus drives past and sees people climbing after rain they think it's fine. I see it all the time. Just a bad example to be setting.

Comments: If you continue up the rail to its apex on Washed Up it's about V5 and a super fun variation.

Comments: Getting your first 13a while retaining downgrading hard-man status? Sounds like the best of both worlds!

Comments: This is a great route with an awesome boulder problem at the end. Def the best route there. Thanks Josh and Sam for putting up these routes. It's been nice having this crag to myself for the last 6 months. I know this because I accidentally left a long sling on the warm up and it hasn't been touched for as long.

Comments: Just to clarify, this climb is located ALL the way in the back on the right side. It's a R facing corner. I went in the corridor and went up the splitter halfway back on the left wall. BAD IDEA! There is no anchor and deposits you on a sloping ledge/tower w/ no anchor. I ended up single line rapping with my friend counter-weighting using a 'groove' so the rope wouldn't slide off the ledge and lead to my ultimate demise. 'Yer Gonna Die' FA Ben Riley 5.11- X.

Comments: Is the above gear description from the guidebook? It looked like all .3 camelot's to me. I got up to the changing corners and realized my four .3's would not be enough (of which I'd already placed 3), so I down climbed. My first impression was that it looked like .3's the entire way but Bloomie convinced me to get on it with his varied rack beta. Book says two or three .3's and three .4's. I'd take six or seven .3's and then some less than tips for the top boulder problem.

Comments: Anyone know who's fixed line is on this right now? Would love to work it with someone (free, of course) and I just may go trax your line next week after work. So don't take it down! Kidding... kind of.
