Comments: As of 11/25/14 there are only three names on top of Togo Tower...and I don't believe it! From the edge you can see someone messed with the register. My bet is that Andy knows! So now there may be five names, two of which our mine.

Comments: This line, like the rest on east facing main wall were put up ground up. If you have been here, you then know, how much the rock evades sharp edges and good stances. This is a fun line put up by Brent Inghram, Kris Solem, and yours truley as one after the other stood and drilled, petaled, and clipped before calling for the next masochist.

Comments: I you want to mix up your day here there is a fun thing to do provided you have a designated shuttle driver. Have this good human drop you a the Brian Head summit with your Mt. Bikes and then meet you with gear at the Overlook. The trail is pretty good and runs right to the crag in less than an hour. Climb most of the day, then, if still game, ride one of the Bunker Creek trails down to Panguitch Lake and meet at one of the burger joints. Another shuttle driver needed.

Comments: I am a local and have seen many great looking routes in the area that are unpublished. One would hope the creators would feel obliged to post. Otherwise, "someone" will post them and give credit to somebody named "unknown". Shame, many of the lines are really good! Back in the day, I understood keeping secrets. There were only a few of us and to make noise about an area created a crowd of we few. Today with the legions of climbers, more areas seem to disperse us thus creating a better sit... more >>

Comments: This is a good place to camp and climb. The first pitch will go free if someone wants to bolt the face moves right and up from the first bolt. This would become a more "direct start"

Comments: This week-end might be the last good one for climbing. Thanks again to all those who visited and helped out this last season. We got a lot done and added some really great new lines.

Comments: When you climb well over 5.9 it is sometimes hard to remember and appreciate a good 9. The 5.9 first pitch was enjoyed by it's FA et. al. The much harder second pitch was enjoyed by another group.

Comments: What kind of prehistoric shadow is coming off the top of this tower?

Comments: I do not understand this tower shadow! Why does it look look like a prehistoric raptor lifting off?

Comments: To see this place in person is to shutter even more than when you look at the pictures! Well done! You have set new standards for SOFT rock! And in my own back yard! Damn!

Comments: Spoon fed? Absolutely not! But basic beta begets more climbing and less reconnoitering, thus leading to less walking/searching on the now fragile and new soils at the Horns base.

Comments: The top of Kestrel Tower was a mess of large blocks which we cleaned...except for that really big one (see photos) that would not budge. There are at least two more lines (see photos on the cover page) to be done on this bit of bird rock. The current anchor is only webbing and bail beaners. Sorry, I was out of chains and quicklinks. This will be replaced with durable hardware.

Comments: I thought the slightly overhanging crack prior to the traverse right was pumpy and at least 10b. It was cold and windy, and I am getting old, but come on guys! Really, 9+? I know you guys cleaned the hell out of the thing, BUT, so did we. Those hard winters the last few years since the last takers added some very dangerous looseness. All gone now! Thanks for that line. I will try it again. And thanks for those spendy stainless chain anchors.

Comments: If you start on the right or the arete with square cut stances and then move out on to the face thus avoiding the route to the left (see topo) you will have a spicier start. Congratulations to Alex and Kurt! And I look forward to experiencing your good work to the right! That wall has been begging for a line. Thankx!

Comments: Come on people! Do you really think this remote crag will get crowded up? The Jungle is way closer to civilization and I may see 100 folks a season. I have been to the Horn pre and post fire. I have roughly counted over 50 lines. This place, its quality lines, and its pristine location will only draw the kind of folks you would want to see here! Toss those folks a bone.
