Comments: I think up is the objective in climbing. Really, who taught you how to climb anyways?

Comments: I found this to be an enjoyable route that gets full winter sun and good belay ledges. This route does have some commitment as bailing after pitch two would be really bad. The whole route (except pitch 2) was good, and the route will get better as it cleans up with a few more ascents. A #6 camalot is only necessary in one spot, which was not too difficult nor too dangerous. It was used there (pitch 3), but if I were to do it again I would go without the added weight. Enjoy the route!

Comments: Three stars for the first two pitches and only one star for the very dirty third pitch.

Comments: P 1 is reasonably soloed
P 3 & 4 easily combine with a 60 m

Comments: Maybe it would not have been so bad if the fat kid lost some weight.

Comments: What about a Salt Lake Crusher/ Kor slideshow. Maybe in Ogden. Jeff Lowe has been organizing several great climbing events. Come to Utah!

Comments: Pitch 2 eats green and purple camalots (.75 and .5) and is still reasonably doable due to many face holds

Comments: One of the best around. First pitch is 5.9 with no real OW that I remember. (If there was 5.10 OW I would have remembered it)

Comments: Bolted crack...ethics?

More like 5.11 no move is too hard, pulling the roof is the crux.

Comments: Not as bad as it looks. The crux is NOT the offwidth. Take extra .75 camalots. A bit harder than I thought it would be as my partner told me it was 5.8. Funner than it looks.

Comments: Incredible climb. Pitch 2 is memorable. Trad pro for pitch 1 is a #3 camalot. The climbing isn't too hard, so if you handle a little runout of 5.5 terrain, you'll be fine.

Comments: A seldom climbed route due to the requirement of gear. A fun climb, perhaps slightly "R" rated. You can sling chickenheads for pro. I really enjoyed the route.
