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.

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.
