Comments: This isn't a climb, its a scramble. My non-climbing dad and sister did this in tennis shoes solo up and down. Don't bother bringing gear. Way less heady than Pine Valley Peak. only 3-4 sections where you actually use your hands. Fun route and definitely worth doing with some other peaks in the area.

Comments: A hard cross through move to an awkward cobble pinch around bolt 5 was the crux for me. A giant dish/hole thing after that move has a massive jug that you could camp out on, then a secret pocket out left gets you out of the hole and its one more bolt on a devious, "what-do-I-grab?" vertical section to the anchors.

Comments: Don't get sucked to the left as the wall gets less steep around bolt 3-4, find the sweet two finger and mono out right that leads to big positive pockets to top. More techy than the other routes here.

Comments: Steep with slippery sloper cobbles at the crux. Fairly continuous with no real monster cobble jug rests. Definitely fun.

Comments: Pretty fun technical pocket pulling. It's unlikely you'll deck as you clip 3 bolts in a 6 foot section off the deck.

Comments: Tyrolean is currently found inbetween the membrane parking and bush pullout parking mentioned in the description. Either walk west of membrane parking or east of bush parking towards the river and should be obvious if it's there. Walking west of the bush parking looking for the pipe as mentioned here will result in you not finding the crag.

Comments: Give this area 5 years and hopefully it will be as clean as division, but for now, beware the choss! We did our part by breaking several holds, mostly feet, on every route.

Comments: If you think "feature" looks like choss than this route looks like leftover dynamite blasted rock , but similarly somehow stays together when you yard, albiet gently. Some pinches and under clings provide an uncharacteristic chadbourne non pocket crux which leads to 20 more feet of "this shouldnt have been bolted " terrain involving a very real leg breaking fall into a ledge to reach the anchors on the worst rock of the cliff.

Comments: Shoreline gets a 12c rating both here and in the ruckman guide, not 12a

#4 is "Ashore" 11d.

Comments: More of the same only with smaller pockets. The crux between bolts 4-5 involves a long throw between two good 2 finger pockets with all sorts of ticked sucker ones nearby that people must use to make the route a lot harder for them. A connesieur of knee bars will find a decent one in the blocky corner post crux before rounding the corner into more pockets and one last deadpoint bump to good finishing jugs. The top out on this is much less stressful than beam and coke though not a cakewalk.

Comments: By far one of the most fun routes in the wasatch. Jugs to Heaven. A slightly harder version of teenova in af. The most hollow and fragile Part of the the X'd flake busted on us today but the majority of it remains.

Comments: Super good climbing. A lie back side pull midway up creates a tough move to a small two finger pocket, then jugs to the last bolt. Chances are high you will botch the top sequence clipping the chains on the first go. There aren't jugs so don't hope for any.

Would love to believe this is 12d, but it's pretty soft like most of the ratings up here.

Comments: This thing looks like horrible rock from below but it's is actually pretty solid. The giant horns in the sponge like rock have some petrified guano but it didn't feel loose. Secret pockets and lie backs make up the middle 5.10 section. As tempting as it is to bail out left at the top to avoid the 11a roof, the direct route is dang fun involving an under cling pocket to help mantle over the top to the anchors. Best warmup of the 3 climbs I would consider in that genre

Comments: The approach directions are good but I'll add my own comments to maybe help clarify. The distance from the parking to the turnoff is .7 miles by my gps. After crossing through the stream bed you should see a small rope swing. Head uphill from there east on the main trail. A trail leads down and left 1 min after the swing and should be ignored. 2 faker trails appear on the right as the trail flattens out before an excellent looking trail with a small cairn appears on the right before the short do... more >>

Comments: Classic guidebook blunder by Mr. Day. I found the intial moves getting my feet onto the giant slanting triangle hold while liebacking the jug sidepull and clipping bolt 2 to be easy enough, but failed to move any further up the arete without Old Bessie the cow yelling "barn door" causing me to cease upward progress. I guess I wasn't slapping happy enough. If one can acquire the small crimp hole 4 feet higher the rest is in the bag pending no unfortunate beta botching. Bouldery to balancy. Need t... more >>

Comments: Dang hard top move to access the poop hueco. A few positive crimps and some really crappy other holds. I failed to gaston, dyno, or perform any other trickery here. My bail biner awaits someone stronger.

Comments: Keep in mind it's a 40-45 min drive from the junction of sunset and bluff st to the crags when planning your trip out. We climbed at Kelly's rock in mid August and it was hot but in the shade the entire time.

Comments: I would like to 2nd the recommendation to not get sucked into hiking too early as there are a few boulders with cables on them. Go all the way to the major switchback which is 1.5 miles from the pavement like the poster said, not 1.3 or 1.4. If you aren't on a nice trail from start to finish, you are off route.

Comments: This boulder is right at a major switchback in the road and also has a black, metal staircase to its left with a closed sign in it.
