Sewing it up, like seven pieces in 40 feet.  Pretty hard climb for big fingers.   No anchors on top, but I wrapped the rope around the top block and then flipped it off after I cleaned it on rappel.

The lowest bolt shown in the white rock - lower left - is clipped while hanging onto some rat dropping holds.  Could use a cam to help not hit the ground.

The upper face goes on for a while to bolt anchors.  Lowers with a 70 meter rope.

Counting bolts. <br /> <br />Perfect little area for climbing and a picnic.  Shade, sand, grass, secluded.

Tried starting up the flared groove and quickly decided that, for me, 5.11 friction is easier than 5.8/5.9 groveling.  Seems more civilized to clip the first bolt of Spuds and head left.

You can climb Gargoyle Gardens (5.7 gear) and then continue up High Desert (5.10a gear and bolts) to the top.  Makes for a long fun pitch that still lowers with a 70 meter rope.

Fun climb, but don't blow the second clip.  Could be an ankle breaker. <br /> <br />But I'm an 'Old Man'

One of the best long, steep, 10a climbs at 'City'.  Several crux's.

Yeah, the wind blows over the top.

From the top (near the rap anchor) looking down on the last pitch.  This is, or can be, a difficult lead with little communication and a total rope stretcher.

Lost Angel on Angels Landing.  One of the first few ascents of this route in 2001.  The route is between Prodigal Son and Ball and Chain and goes up the blank bulging wall via beak cracks. <br /> <br />We had 18 beaks/peckers/rurps and used most of them on two continuous pitches. <br /> <br />Climbers below my right are starting up Prodigal Son. <br /> <br />Photo by Brian Smoot

Bill Boyle on Lovelace in Zion's.  Early '90's. <br /> <br />The independent Fang Spire behind him. <br /> <br />Bill has done more first ascents than I could count. Hundreds in American Fork Canyon alone.  Dozens more at City of Rocks.
