Comments: There were no bees present last weekend. This one worked me much more than Phantasm and seemed a good bit harder for the grade. I brought a purple C3 just in case, and found this very useful protecting the upper roof crux. I don't think anything larger would fit in the crack immediately beneath the roof.

Comments: Thank you Greg for the continuing stewardship in updating Rodeo Wall recently, and Hoback Shield awhile back! Your commitment to preserving and even enhancing the integrity of these routes you bolted decades ago is admirable.

Comments: A fantastic line! Great job on developing this panel Terry, it is a true anomaly for the area with wicked steep, juggy climbing.

Rock Climbs of the Eastern Big Horns Second Edition has been sent to printers 6/1/16. It should hopefully be back and in distribution at the end of July. PM me here if you would like a copy mailed. I will probably have some copies available by the end of June.

Comments: Top notch tower route for sure! There were several sections that wavered between #3 and #4 Camalot size. The old #3.5 Camalots or an equivalent piece would have been great to have. If you have any of this size, I would swap out 2 of the #3 Camalots for the #3.5 size.

The new rap line was awesome! Again, much appreciation to you guys for fixing up this setup, it was a major community service. Replacement of the outdated summit whiskey stash was also appreciated.

Comments: Nice job resurrecting this old area Roy and party! We had a great time here yesterday. It makes an ideal "pit stop" for climbers traveling between Flagstaff and Zion. It was a perfect option to get out and tag a few mellow summits en route back home after a big day in Zion. The climbs are worthwhile (if accustomed to obscure desert choss), a flat 15 minute hike from the car, and only a few minutes between the towers. The anchors were all bomber bolts, and the webbing was still good (2/16). About... more >>

Comments: A fun jaunt on a nice little tower close to the road. The rock is decent, and we trundled a handful of the more obvious loose blocks off of it to help clean it up some. There are still things to be wary of, but it's mostly choss-free. Summit register is soaked unfortunately.

Comments: I agree with Kevin. The above description of the 3rd pitch reads like an entirely different experience than what we encountered up there. I would describe that pitch as 90% creaky choss, with a band of the worst brown sugar "rock" I've seen in Sedona. Between the two of us, we trundled probably 40 lbs of blocks out of the crack after the initial traverse, and pulled or scuffed off many small bits and pieces throughout. The final runout above the pin was indeed on slightly better rock, but I cert... more >>

Comments: The most burly wide climbing is indeed off the deck in the flared v-slot. I placed the #6 here, mostly just to unburden myself. I don't really think it's necessary, as it looked like smaller gear may work here too, and the slot is pretty secure. We linked pitch 1 and 2, which worked fine as long as everything is slung long and not much gear is placed in the chimney of pitch 2. It's 35m to the ground from the anchors on pitch 2. The 3rd pitch is all bolts, no gear needed. I think the route ... more >>

Comments: An awesome, varied line that with some very unique sections. A .3 and .4 Camalot (or two .4s) are the key pieces at the top of pitch one, and also handy on pitch 4. A single rack to #2 C4 with one extra .75, 2 #3s, one new #4, one old #4 (or equivalent), and 1 #5 seemed sufficient. There is only 1 bolt on the crux OW. I didn't think a #6 was necessary. A dozen or more draws are handy, as the last pitch is long. You can do two raps with a single 70m to the last... more >>

Comments: We approached this with one 70m rope, intending to rap the route as was somewhat suggested in the High on Moab guidebook. However, the tower saw two parties that day, and we teamed up to rap via the suggestion by Sam here with one single rope rap from the summit and then one double rope rap to the ground. We were pretty stoked to get down this way, as the traversing nature of the 3rd pitch looked like it would be a pain in the ass to rappel...but having not done it, I can't say for certain.

Comments: A single 60m will get you down from steel anchors, no tat on this one. If you bring a couple of extra cams in the .5-#1 Camalot sizes (maybe 3X .5 and .75 and 4X #1 total) you could do this in one pitch with proper runner use and skip the intermediate belay.

Comments: Do like Earl suggests, and have the leader run this to the top in one long pitch. There were no intermediate anchors on the route, and very little in the way of good looking options to break it up. A leader willing to solo a secure chimney can wriggle up this thing pleasantly unencumbered, but take a #2 and #3 Camalot for a top anchor in a good horizontal crack 10' back from the top-out (no fixed upper anchor).

Comments: A great Entrada route for sure, with a variety of burly sizes. The 2nd pitch involves some pretty wild climbing up the chimney, with a face splitter providing pretty good pro. There are some sizable loose blocks to avoid on this pitch, and a very tight squeeze finale that is best tackled deep in the depths of the chimney.
The first pitch belay has a newer bolt and a splitter crack which requires an extra #1 Camalot or two. The rap anchors (which are on a separate system about 50' left of ... more >>

Comments: Excellent route that has the best rock I've seen in Arches, a great diversity of crack sizes, and a rad summit. Don't know the current policy on anchor replacement in Arches, but this would be a very worthy candidate. A single 70m rope is sufficient for all rappels, with the final one just reaching the ground.

Comments: Fun, mellow roadside tower tick; well worth doing if you've done the more popular mini-towers throughout the park. As it didn't seem clearly mentioned here, the route is on face opposite the road. Also, a single 70m rope easily reached the ground and it looked like a 60m might work with stretch, but not positive on that.

Comments: So after 7 years, this thing finally saw a presumed 2nd ascent (based on the crispy tat on the anchor from the FA). A big thanks to Clay and Terry for replacing said tat with chains! The consensus bumped the grade up a bit, and it holds strong as a heady little jaunt over questionable small pro.

Comments: This takes a striking feature, and offers up a surprising dose of exposure for the moderate grade, but the quality of the climbing itself didn't match the aesthetics of the line IMO. The quality of the rock is pretty suspect throughout both pitches, with lots of crunchy features both big and small. Given the spaced bolting on the first pitch and the final bit of the second pitch, there is potential to log some sizable falls if you rip off a hold. Both my partner and I have climbed lots of fresh ... more >>

Comments: A good warm-up for the other steep lines here, but hardly a local classic, as it's less than half the height of anything else on this impressive wall. It has fun movement, but pretty crunchy rock. It could benefit from a thorough cleaning, and will clean up some with traffic.

Comments: This is a fun, long route in the 5.10 range that is very user friendly. The FA party engineered the line to take the most appealing climbing up this ridge, and the result is a safe, well-protected long route with a few good pitches and a lot of decent climbing. A strong party can climb this quickly, given the abundant fixed gear, minimal rack, and single rope needed. Pitches 1,4, and 5 were the most memorable.

Comments: Hey Cam, I am almost positive that I have your route drawn in correctly on the overview photo under the main page for the Hand. I know the second pitch is correct, as it has bolts on it. The 1st pitch I'm pretty certain on too, as I actually had your Select Climbs book up there that day, and compared the picture in it with Benny aiding the very start of the route with the terrain at the bottom of the system I marked on the overview photo and it matched up. However, the description in Desert Rock... more >>
