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.

Comments: Interesting route. For me, the crux ended up actually being at the start of the rightwards traverse (getting into the the good hold at the start without getting tangled up in the rope). The feet through here are tough to see and kind of slippery. The rest of it was pretty sequency, but I didn't really ever dyno (used more lower leg flagging instead). One last compression type of move to get stood up onto the headwall.

Comments: I think 12d is probably fair for this route. Agreed that there aren't any shutdown moves on it, but by the time you get to the crux, you have some wear and tear on you. When I tried it the first time, I thought I would get it really quick, but I kept unraveling at the crux, and it took me more tries than I thought it would. Great route, the climbing is superb on this one.

Comments: Super fun route. The stemming on the lower half is great, and after you have done it a couple times, you can fly right up it and feel like a hero. The boulder problem at the top had one move on it that really took all of my effort - if you sag the slightest bit it just isn't going to happen. After that, if you can throw the rope through the draw, it is just a matter of hanging on for dear life as you clip the anchors. Not sure what to call it grade wise, it isn't my usual style of route (act... more >>
