Comments: If you do 1000' of Fun as discribed you will need two ropes to rap as anchors are at least 150' apart, you cannot walk off from the top of the climb.. There are some singe pitch routes in the area but can be quite difficult.

Comments: The lenth of the rope was as seen in the photo. The lads found this 10' of hemp rope .One was leaning over the top holding the rope with one hand in order have a photo that looked like we were "real" rock climbers. Photo taken with a Brownie Box Camera.

Comments: The first ascent was made in 1971 by Mike Stultz , George Eyper and Joe Cote .This party placed a 6" bong for protection . While not actually used as aid, it was impossible to avoid coming in contact with it.Barber and Masury in 1976 climbed it without the bong.. a bolt placed next to the crack is used for protection.

Comments: Hi Matt . Glad you had fun on the climb. Perhaps other folks if those rap bolts you mentioned are not replaced they could check out the raps from the other climbs to the north. Cheers

Comments: Yes 60m ropes are fine. It is easier to duo rap if you feel ok with that.

Comments: We did remove all the loose we could find on the FA and the odd repeat ascents later on. Judging by comments on this climb and other repeats on routes in this area it seems this sandstone rock is "alive" and does continue to decompose.This certainly adds to the great adventure of sandstone climbing.I guess love it or leave it.We loved it.Cheers from the damp UK.

Comments: We left all the hangers on the FA in 2002. Someone has removed them ,typical of some of todays climbers.

Comments: You certainly left quite a lot of loose rock /cleaning, etc. if you did they same line as we did. One would have thought they would have been at least a sign of a previous ascent... more so as you claim it was made just a few months before ours... who knows where you ended up?

Comments: The climbs are not that obscure. There are about 250 routes on these crags and they are just of a major interstate namely I.70 near Green River. They are adventure climbs... the FA's done ground up on sight . Chris preferes this type of adventure climbing. He has climbed a couple of times on here over the last few years. We first climbed together in the Alps in 1958. This area is not popular with todays youth as it has run out pitches and many of the climbs can not be overcome with brut strenth ... more >>
