Comments: Ha ha, in Richard's defense, I have been up there quite a few times, and I don't think I have ever gone the same way twice. Some ways suck, and some are even worse!

Comments: really fun route. i wish there were a lot more like this one - fun fingers with good feet. allows you to get on a finger crack at a reasonable grade.

Comments: be careful pulling your rope, this one is a notorious rope-eater.

Comments: second pitch is also really good. IIRC off-fingers/thin hands to good hands and back down. upper headwall crack on the first pitch is definitely more strenuous than it looks, big hands with sometimes awkard feet. great route overall.

Comments: Great route, would be 4 stars if not for the manky start. Seemed pretty similar in difficulty to the other 12a's in the area, definitely not in the same league as The Gem.

Comments: True dat, way easier to clip if the draw is pre-hung, or you pretty much have to climb past it - I must have forgotten about that when posting it, but I remember that pretty vividly now....

Comments: Thanks for posting this route, Kenan. The name is “twenty too short”, and probably like most short routes in the desert the story behind, it is longer than the climbing. I had originally thought about posting it, but I figured I would wait and see if anybody else did first. Hard to believe it has been 4-1/2 years, it was put up on 4/25/10 by Sarah Hayden with me along for the ride.

In the early to mid 2000s I spent many weekends climbing in Escalante Canyon with my friend, mentor, and desert... more >>

Comments: yeah, i thought this one was kind of spooky also. it is really hard not to use the block and it would be bad for the belayer and leader both if it popped.

Comments: Yeah, the dome looks a lot like Pond Rock, although I haven't seen pictures of it from this angle. The other photos I have seen have been from below the right side of it.

Comments: I think (am pretty sure actually) Kerry Gunter and Noah Bigwood climbed this in the late '80s or early '90s. Maybe in the 11 range (?). Kerry was trying to talk me into doing it, but I know better. ;)

IIRC he said #4 Camalots on the first pitch and tough underclinging at the top.
