Comments: Drive into the Little Mill campground. The rock is quite obvious on the right side of the road.

You can easily see the .10b from the campground road.

Comments: Noted.

.11c is about where I start whining and crying; I just didn't find it that hard.

I gave it a .10d because I found it easier than Send in the Frowns, which I thought was around .11a (although since you'd already told me that Tim rated that one at .11c that's what I put that one down as.)

Comments: The photo was taken in April.

Whether there will be too much snow or not is entirely hit-and-miss, depending on the weather. Utah in April can have 12 inches of snow drop one day followed by 70 degree temperatures the next day.

Comments: Beginners need to learn the mental game as well. If you're not comfortable with the high first bolt: stick clip.

Comments: As I climbed this line the handholds were covered in dust and grit and I kept knocking off bits with my feet, causing my belayer not a little consternation. The rock quality was atrocious, even by my admittedly lax standards.

At the fifth bolt I looked up and could only see a bolt 12-15 feet ahead. I looked in front of me at the rusty head of a bolt of unknown length and its rusty old SMC hanger, seated in rock of dubious quality. I contemplated a possible 20+ foot fall...and chickened out.

Comments: jsnstwrt, you misunderstand the motivation behind the reluctance to publish information. It has nothing to do with money.

There are four men who between them have developed equally the vast majority of the routes in Santaquin. I know three of the four, although only one well. My knowledge of the situation comes from him.

Two of the route developers wanted to publish the routes in a future guidebook and two did not.

The motivation for not wanting to publish the information is, as I u... more >>

Comments: Heh. I figured it was something like that.

I think Darren had something similar happen to him once.

Comments: A really fun climb. Requires delicate face climbing (a bit of a rarity in AF), and some really fun arete trickery.

Comments: I should note that in Tyler King's original list of the Blue Walls routes in the area description this route was listed as a .10c.

If you can hand jam it isn't that hard.

Comments: Despite being a glued-together pile of choss this route is a lot of fun.

In A Climber's Guide to Select Walls in American Fork Canyon this is rated .11d/12a. Since MountainProject doesn't have .11d/.12a, I'll put it in as .12a to make me feel more accomplished...

Anyway, if you're shorter, the crux will almost certainly feel .12a.

Comments: Bouldery start is right: I climbed up; tried out various tiny, uncomfortable holds. I climbed down. I climbed up and over; tried pockets. I climbed back over and down. I climbed up, thought about committing, climbed down. I climbed up, committed, guessed wrong. I fell down (onto the first bolt).

Lowered down and started over. Figured out where the (itty-bitty) hold I needed is, and fell off when an intermediate hold broke. Lowered again. Finally grunted through the start on ... more >>

Which is it?
