Comments: I nominate this photo for amputee poster child of the year. Or at least a case study on distal circulation disorders.

Comments: Fun route and plenty juggy hence the rating.
As stated, rap to get off as there is a lot of sharp rock up there. And it's easier to bring your 2nd up to the belay.

Comments: +1 for hand traversing everything. There were only 2 spots that didn't have easy feet and they were short (5 feet long I spose). And memorize the topo just in case, you know, it falls out of your pocket into the void while starting the sidewalk. he he

Comments: That's exactly what we did. The route description didn't make sense 1/2 of the time. And yes, a 70m worked perfectly.

Comments: The worst part of the approach is from the road to The Point--sucky talus. It took us about another 35-40 min from there for a total of 1 hour to get Beer Belly.....without packs. There's room for many many more routes, although the plums have been picked.

John, feel like drawing in the routes? I'm sure it wouldn't take any time. :)

Comments: The routes here are pretty incredible. Many do have goofy 1st pitches, but not all. Once you get past the 1st 50' or so, the rock is almost always perfect. Additionally, the climbs are very unique for the canyon; angular holds with slabs and roofs and interesting moves. And you can't beat the setting. Approach is quick @ 15-20 minutes for all but the lazy. Great Summer crag as it stays cool most of the time, sun or shade.

But don't tell anyone.

Comments: Attempted the actual start to this today. Tenesmus's description is a bit off me thinks. By far and away, I'd recommend the "Hell Raiser" start--much more fun and safe.
The topo in the Ruckman guide is pretty nondescript so here's some blathering:
From the belay bolt, head up and right with about a 30' run out over very easy ground. Clip the 1st bolt. The second one is close-ish on the dark mini-arete on the left. Now plug a piece or 2 into a flake system (easy). Find a bolt @ it's terminus... more >>

Comments: Anyone know what the 2nd pitch of this is? The anchor was a lone bolt, so we donated a locker.
And, no, I aint gonna buy a guide from IME. Just spill it.

Comments: Brian in SLC wrote: "I also wouldn't be opposed to removing the rappel line that goes down to the left. No need for that. Takes way longer than the easy walk and scramble off."

+1 (as well as +1 to not adding fixed anchors).

Comments: I think the word you were looking for wasn't "stole", but "cleaned". As you apparently abandoned them for 3 weeks, they were no longer yours.
