Comments: Matt...don't you live in South Park?

Anyway, hope things are healing up (both of you poor bastards) and the "broom" is growing in nicely...

'til next year...its the VRG season....

Comments: This route is very good...and certainly deserves more traffic. I finally got around to doing this the past weekend and was dismayed at how dirty/choked with cobwebs the route was...really cool climbing with only a couple of bolts worth of difficult moves. Do yourself a favor a don't get suckered right into the choss above the roof...you'll miss some of the best climbing on the route. And its not as hard as it looks.

Comments: I think for the second pitch alone, this route is 3 stars. Very diverse climbing in a great position with a cool committing finish. However, the first pitch, while fun, detracts from the overall quality.

Comments: I STRONGLY disagree with the proposed quality of this route. It does not deserve to be included with the aforementioned group of routes....in my estimation. Truly an unpleasant undertaking.

Comments: One of the few routes at American Fork that would be good at any climbing area in America. Classic.

Comments: This route is a total pile that I would only recommend to my worst enemy. While pretty to look at...and fun to climb if you can get past the fear factor...I will not be surprised when the whole thing falls down. I just hope there is no one on it when it does...go do Durt instead!

Comments: I'm not a Rifle local, though I do make many weekend trips each summer from SLC, and I would like to continue to do this, so I thought some of you "locs" might be interested in a outsider's perspective:

This last weekend was only my 5th trip of the summer, but (just like every year) I've noticed that the Project Wall and the Arsenal seem to suffer severely from an infestation of leashless dogs. Dogs running unrestrained, doing there doggy things, all over the road while their masters blithely ... more >>

Comments: This truly is a great route...Not being a Rifle local, I've probably only done this route about 6 times, and its funny, sometimes it feels like a light on my feet cruise and somtimes I miss a hold or two and it feels harder than Vision Thing...anyway, it keeps you on your toes.

Comments: It seems clear that this route was initially done (and graded) w/o the kneebar technology, am I wrong. I got on it w/ only the rubber on my feet and found it to be excellent, but stout (compared to some others of the grade in the park)...and then had other climbers spray about it being easy and "whatever grade". Not that it matters at all...its a great route, just curious if it is one that has "succumbed" to the rubber kneepad.
