Comments: Correction on first ascents. The South Tower was first ascented by a route first up to the back ridge (via 5 pitches) then the final Tower section by Paul Ross and Paul Gardner (16th Oct 1999).The Route mentioned "Beyond the 80th Meridian" up the South tower came later as alternative pitches... and finished up the tower section of the Ross/Gardner route. The North Tower was first ascented by Paul and Andy Ross ( 1st May 2000)

Comments: I don't think Bob or Mike whats his name should worry about the hordes coming to this area . We have been climbing on the Swell's Eastern Reef for about eight years right next to I.70 . There is now over 190 climbs of all grades and its still VERY rare to see ANY other climbers.Thankfully these days most "climbers" are clustered on the well know sport areas making as much noise as possible.Finding new climbs and climbing them on sight in remote areas is great fun and I think the purest form of r... more >>

Comments: Re checked directions (11th Nov /2011) on the Eastern Reef Slabs and Walls section and added even more details.We never use the Hunting Ranch entrance mentioned below as this may upset the owners.There are as yet no directions in any rock climbing guide book to the Eastern Reef. Use the detailed directions that are already posted on MP.If you cannot follow these.....suggest you might try to find Potash Road,near Moab.

Comments: Will check out the directions next time I am down there.The dirt road that runs along the Reef for about 9 miles starts from I.70 and exits at the Hanksville road can be found on most road maps.

Comments: None of that gear was there in the 1990's. Those items must have been left from the first ascent.Good effort in 75 .... and just getting to the Isle of Hoy itself..

Comments: Sounds well made... but hand drilling for bolts on sandstone other than perhaps Windgate usually produces a hole too large to hold a bolt...solution take baby angles.
