Comments: Super fun jug haulin'. Improbably easy given the angle. Stays dry in a decent rain.

Comments: A great route, very memorable. Certainly on the list of neglected gems at T-Wall. Place lots of big stuff down low, just so your second can have the fun of hauling it all the way up! In reality, #3 and smaller is all you need.

Comments: Given 12c in the Dixie Craggers, this feels way easier than other routes of the grade at T-Wall (such as Stinger Arete, Twistin' in the Wind, Stonehinge).

Comments: I've done this route a couple of times and think it's worth doing. However, I don't think it's a world class, best of T-Wall outing. IMHO, giving this route 4 stars diminishes true classics like Mrs. Socrates, Sugar in the Raw, Psychopath, Stepping Stone, etc. Good route? Yes. Great Route? No

Comments: Good power crimping. Last 2 bolts were hard to clip for me. Skip the last and keep it together for the last moves.

Was harder for me then Twilight of a Champion or Ambushed.

Comments: Felt solid for 13b. Hard to work as you're monopolizing the whole wall sans Glitch.


Location: GA : Boat Rock : Crazy Critters (V6)

Comments: I thought the name of this was crispy critters?

I started at the back of the cave at the first obvious roof jams. Frustrating problem, hard not to dab as the feet are hard to see when your face is pressed against the wall and are just a few inches from the ground. Worth doing once!

Comments: I've always thought this was a nice route, good for a lap at the end of the day. It never seems to get the traffic that it deserves, maybe because the bottom is sometimes wet? Probably a little soft compared to other 12a's at Fosters (Framed, Vapor Lock, Satisfaction) but definitely worth doing. The slopey holds in the crux can feel a might greasy in the heat!


Location: NV : Red Rock : Sandstone Quarry : Front Corridor

Comments: According to my guidebook there are 5 routes on the left side but there now appears to be 7?

The last 4 seem pretty obvious, Churning, SoP, Sunsplash, and M. Skank.

I did the farthest left...cool slopey jugs to some crimps to a ledge and then pull a little roof to the chains. I think that's Pockets of Dirt.? (seemed easy for 11d?) Any idea what the other 2 are? In between Pockets and Churning?

Comments: Nope. That's definitely Twistin'. You can see the no hands rest above and the funky dihedral below the climber. Fun route.

Comments: There's nothing remotely close to v5 on this route. From a bomber hand jam rest climb 10 feet of v3 to the anchors. Oh yeah, be sure to grunt loudly for the gawkers.

Comments: If not for some pebbly rock this would be a 4-star outing. I agree with the description, solid for 5.9. Well worth doing.

Comments: I've never understood the 12d rating on the route. It's 12bish on pebbly, somewhat painful holds. I've always thought the whipping post was a cool little spot but the only worthwhile route in there imo is dreamscape.

Comments: Keegan,
I spent a month there in fall 2005. It's a great place, nice rock, chill scene, and (at least then) fairly cheap. We stayed at the Fatolitis Studios in Massouri. Has a pool, it's own little private beach, and is nice. We paid 25 euros a night. From Massouri you can walk to many of the crags (Grande Grotto, Jurassic Park, Spartacus, Odyssey) and is a 10 minute scooter ride from Arhi. You can walk or take a short scooter trip to the grocery in Massouri; it's a 20 minute sco... more >>


Location: TN : Obed & Clear Creek : South Clear Creek : Image Wall : Spawn (5.10c)
By: yevquest When: Feb 26, 2008

view comment >>
Comments: Did something break on this route? I always get spawn and shadowhawk confused but I recall one being 5.9 and one being 10a. South Clear's grades are cushy enough without more grade inflation.

To end on a positive note, both spawn and shadowhawk are cool, long, fairly engaging moderate routes with nice views. Thanks for adding.

Comments: We did this as a warmup a long time ago and thought it was horrible. It was super dirty and I remember the bolts being in odd places. I seem to remember one of the hangers on the anchors had been removed as well. Maybe I should do it again and see if it's gotten better.

There's an old toprope (trad route?) to the right of this route on the the very dirty face. You can see anchors at the top of the crag.


Location: TN : Foster Falls : White Wall : Bottom Feeder (5.12a/b)
By: yevquest When: Feb 8, 2008

view comment >>
Comments: The white wall is not the first area you come to after passing the falls. There are 2 places with 2 short routes each before getting to the white wall.

Bottom Feeder is a contrived, forced line. The 12a is, as Ryan said, the IC move that's not even that hard. The obvious line up the crack can take you a long way right, way right of the bolt line. Best beta? Do another route!


Location: TN : Foster Falls : White Wall : Handcuffed (5.11c/d)
By: yevquest When: Feb 8, 2008

view comment >>
Comments: A pretty good route marred by a no hands rest after the first crux. I think I've done the upper part about 10 different ways...so many holds!

The upper pitch that I can't remember the name of (easy 12a) is worth doing as well. Steep on big jugs.

Comments: Great training route. I always thought it was 12d but I really hate the moves at the 2nd bolt.


Location: TN : Foster Falls : White Wall : Satisfaction (5.12a/b)
By: yevquest When: Feb 8, 2008

view comment >>
Comments: I agree, this is a very fun route. I would put satisfaction and vapor lock as the 2 best 12a's at Fosters. Not sure which I like better... I'd probably give Satisfaction the nod as you can climb it all year round.

Comments: 12a and the worst route in the right bunker. I can only assume its popularity is due to the crazy soft grade that people want to give this route. Abacus and Bottled Up Warrior are so much better and only 30 feet away.

Comments: Fun problem with a committing move going to the top (if I'm thinking of the right problem, last slab before going around the corner to Yellow Arete?) A gimme at V4, there are much harder v3s at Boat Rock.

Comments: Good problem. Harder for the short....if you're tall you can keep your feet on some decent edges most of the way.
