Comments: Good route. So popular now it is getting awefully greasy. Perhaps stout for 10b BCC grade.

Comments: Feels solid this month. 4 of us climbed it with nothing loose. Be careful not to Z-clip (plenty of close bolts). Good warm up, plenty fun though nothing tricky, but --- is this really 5.10? Good for the aspiring "5.10" leader to help with confidence.

Comments: Good old school standard 5.9. Not runnout but not a clip up. Gear is fine if you have the right sizes. Best route on the wall

Comments: Very thin and very sustained. I won't even try to rate it given all the falls and slips as well as not doing the entire route. In another league compared to most granite slabs I have done in the Wasatch. Cudos to the first ascentionists.

Comments: Went up yesterday and did this and other routes. Last visit to Butcher knife was 1986 when it was in better shape. Unfortunately this wonderful route has significant gear deterioration - ancient bolts and no piton left. Great climbing but forgotten and probably a bit dangerous now until it gets fixed.

Comments: Classic slab climbing. This is the best way to do the full grand wall - spits you out right at the base of the split pillar allowing even more great climbing to top off the day.

Comments: I agree with the helmet. I have climbed this many times and have fallen from 3 distinct cruxes over the years. Once I hit quite hard and then bounced onto my head/helmet.

Comments: How did this get an R rating? Lots of good gear. Great route with a totally well protected final crux


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Little Cottonwood Canyon : Green Adjective Gully : Perhaps Direct (5.9 R)

Comments: A couple quick moves near the ground - then easy to the belay. Skips the first pitch and is probably easier than the traverse right of the first pitch. A nice way to get to the harder climbing above

Comments: I highly recommend tape or very careful jamming. This one will cut you up.

Comments: One of the best routes in the canyon. Stunning crack with heady runnout face at the top. Well worth the walk over and over again.

Comments: Classic old school LCC slab. A bit gritty back in the 80's and still the same.

Comments: All our gear was stolen from the base when we put this route up. Its a bit run after the second both due to no stances left to drill on the lead.

Comments: An amazing line on bullet proof rock. A must do for those who like careful, delicate, thought provoking climbing at this grade. Through the retrospectroscope this is not as run out as it looks - but it seems otherwise until you are right on the gear placement. If you drift off the perfect line (easy to do on stone with so many holds) it is R rated, if not then the gear is fine - bring some small brass, a few wires and a few cams 1/2 inch to 2.5 inches.

Comments: Spectacular first pitch. This pitch is 3-4 stars and deserves being climbed even if you do not wish to finish the route. The middle two pitches are ho-hum. The final pitch has a short, steep, thin section that takes a small RP and perhaps microcam then a bit of a run with no gear on 5.9 terrain - keeps you focused.

Comments: The bolted line to the left on the start of the first pitch actually also has bolts over the roofs for a direct line to the first belay at about a 5.10+/11a grade and offers less risk of a big swing to the second climber. The route is a true slab climb as opposed to the usual steeper edge climbing more typical in Red Rocks. Fun, thin, and old school ratings.

Comments: This is the perfect warm up route for the longer, more sustained routes on these South Pillars. It has one spectacular steep pitch that is a bit harder than the rest.


Location: International : Europe : Italy : Dolomites : Sass Da Ciampac : Old South Face (5.8)

Comments: This route is more of a 4th class scamper with an occasional climbing move than anything else. Its a worthy outing if you want an easy ascent on a sunny south face. To approach - park at the Val Gardena Col, walk down the road a couple turns then go left on the trail near a hut - the trail crosses the hillside for some distance - follow it until you get to the South Face go up the slope and back left on a grassy ramp to the base.
To descend walk West on a well marked path along the summit ridge ... more >>
