Comments: Super sweet climb. Had some interesting weather (rain, wind). Used a lot of gear. Had one set of nuts, double set of Camalots up to #3, one #4 and wished for bigger gear (but who wants to haul it up there) along with one set of C3's with doubles in #1 and #2. Shoulder-length slings extremely useful. We linked one and two but I made the mistake of missing the belay stance at the end of P2 which looking back seemed really vague so ended up rigging a hanging belay 30 feet up... more >>

Comments: What in the world?! This climb is so much fun I can't believe it. I followed pitch 1 and thought a few moves were harder than 5.7 but was probably just the exposure just before the short vertical crack to the belay ledge.

Pitch two is lots of fun on a wind-gust kind of day! I placed an opposed nut before going around the corner which is exciting to say the least. Opted for one #3 C4 in the diagonal crack before heading up. Rope drag was not unreasonable. If I took that cannonball to the c... more >>

Comments: Never feels insecure. Traverse gets your attention with only adequate feet but the undercling is solid and takes gear well. Protected upper face with several horizontal C4's but really is easy climbing once you leave the crack. Bucket land from there all the way to the top with an amazing top-out and view. Sweet climb.

Comments: Fun area after an adventure up the talus. Approach is more like 40-45 minutes. Has to been done during cooler weather or in the am or you will bake. Has some fun climbs that make the ascent worthwhile.

Comments: Clean climb. Interesting bolt placements but well worth doing for a sport route at the grade.

Comments: Kind of a few move wonder but the moves in the corner make it interesting and worth doing. Did it on TR so not able to comment on the lead but the gear seems there for the crux moves.

Comments: Fun climb on decent rock. Really only one crux section makes this a stretch at a 5.10.

Comments: I agree with the one-move-wonder comment but it is a very fun climb. The crux move is committing but very fun and has bomber holds above - you just have to trust yourself and go for it. After that move it is no more than 5.7 but fun up to the chains. My favorite route in the area.

Comments: Actually a pretty fun route. Would be a decent first sport lead.

Comments: From the Circle Creek Overlook Trailhead (which has a new parking lot and bathroom btw) it takes about 30 min to get there. You follow the road north past the gate until you get to a fork. Take the right fork, up and around some lone formations, past a few formations in the trees and then past a ways until you cross a creek, head south and then come to the sign and crag on your right (west). Was a little confusing for the first time but if you just keep walking on the trail, it is very well mark... more >>

Comments: Quick TR to set up after dinner or if weather is threatening. Holds were a little grainy making it a bit more exciting (as exciting as it gets on top rope). Basically is a solo or nowadays a high-ball if done without TR.

Worth doing if time is short. Bring some long slings to extend the rope and reduce drag for the TR.

Comments: Protects very well. I actually used a #4 up top in the larger portion of the crack. Maybe I'm just weak but that direct slot was a bit of a grunt. Glad I had some nice pieces in before the crux. 50/50 nuts/cams. Great route!

Comments: Not a bad beginner's trad route to lead or follow. My son and I did this with a single 60m rope that put us just about 10 feet from the top at a nice boulder to sling as a belay station. From there it was an easy scramble to the top and then left to descend the rebar route.

Need to make good use of slings to decrease rope drag. Very mellow, well-protected route.

Comments: Has a huge hueco you can actually sit in on the way up. Fun climb. A couple of height-dependant moves towards the middle third but not too bad. Would be a good first lead.

Comments: Probably harder than a 5.8. We pulled the roof just left of the bolt line through a crack that angles up and left. Also used this for pro. Seems to me the bolts on the upper face are situated a bit more to the right than I would prefer.

Very fun climb. Roof is committing.

Comments: After having done this on TR, have a new respect for it on lead. As has been mentioned elsewhere, to get the true 5.10 rating stay in-line with the bolts. Using the arete to the left I think makes it more of a 5.9.

I wish I knew how to replace bolts. The first bolt is a weak spinner and a few others are suspect. I backed up a couple of them with small cams.

Comments: I would feel nervous doing this as a trad lead although there were places for pro. Just didn't seem like too many bomber placements. Has some very fun moves on it. Harder than Da Kine.

Comments: Very fun moves. Crux seems to be the next couple moves after clipping the first bolt.

Comments: Did this on TR today. I think it would actually be easier to lead this since you wouldn't have the rope issues to deal with on the overhang. The roof on this is certainly more difficult to surmount than on Shotgun and I think the roof LG&M seems easier. Just me?

Comments: The bolts on this route could use some updating. They seem solid enough but are button-head types.

Very fun route. For me, the crux was getting over the first lip at the first bolt and some crimper moves on the face. Haven't figured out the best way to protect the roof yet but there are several options.

Comments: Am I the only one that likes this climb? Sure it has some lichen on it but for a moderate trad route in Ogden it's pretty darn fun. Probably time to replace the slings on top.

Comments: Loved this route. Long, variable climbing to top. Bottom is indeed a bit harder for shorter climbers. I'm 6'1" and felt I could barely reach some of the holds at the bottom but I loved that section as well as the steeper jug-haul just above the opening sequences. I think the bottom is more like a 5.9. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Comments: This route has now been bolted and has two nice shiny chains on top. Coming up to the headwall, the bolts veer to climber's right where you can jug-haul on the arete to the right of the last bolt. This variation is not a 5.10. It would be if one were to head more directly to the chains or followed the crack system at climber's left. Jeff can clarify further.

Fun climb. Careful not to z-clip when you're at the chains after the last bolt.
