Comments: Be sure and bring some small TCU si zed cams - to me the "crux" was occasional gear in slabby areas to keep it safe. Agreed that its not over until you hit the top.

Comments: Great route. I have taken my kids up this - yes not as good as the other routes but a classic moderate. The final fat crack slows down the beginners but the rest is easy for most climbers.

Comments: The single best open book fingers / stemming route I have ever done in the world. Pitches of solid, clean, 5.10 tips. Wish it went 10 more pitches. Loved it.

Comments: IN your face solid 5.10 the entire way with a pretty hard start pitch. The step over the first roof was balancy and hard. The rest of the route was classic old school 5.10 crack.

Comments: Having climbed both the left and right starts I suggest the left version as it is more aesthetic and the right side had a pretty concerning loose block that I could not avoid. Absolutely wonderful route, the big bivy type ledge up high reminds me of being on El Capitan. One of the more moderate routes on the mountain but you still need to have serious skills at gear placement to keep it safe.

Comments: Wonderful if short. Can't imagine why any bolts would be needed - tons of great gear. Easier than it looks.

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

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.
