There are a few up at Charleston in that range.

The guidebook ISLANDS IN THE SKY has a lot of Charleston routes in it.

The link to amazon.com shows the book at over $90. It is $26 at REI, I'm not sure what Desert Rock Sports charges, but I would guess a similar price.

The main drawback to this book is that it is terribly out of date. There are so many new climbs since its publication.

Robber's Roost/Hood scenes are toxic and annoying. Still have tons of fun every time I get out to Santo Horhay to rock the limestone, I think that if you're looking for moderates, that's a way better spot, and the locals tend to be friendlier and more psyched to share info and space. This thread sponsored by: The Walking Dead. Bringing back threads from the dead and watching them walk around eating brains since 2011.

Mostafa brought this thread back and then deleted his post, I was responding to that. However, Killis is right, don't come to the Roost or the Hood, the routes suck, the people suck, the scenery sucks, definitely go to St. George....and take Killis with you.

For some actual information, one might check the Walla Wall wall and the Starter Wall on this site for a good selection of newish and decent moderates. John Wilder

Yes, Walla Walla Wall is an excellent example of how gym rats can find an established cliff, rap-bolt in a bunch more hardware to lower the commitment standards of the already existing routes, and then not mention the pre-existing hardware when they let you know about "their" "rad" "new routes". The Hamlet looks better than Walla, and the Hamlet reminds me of the results of dysentery. The other cliff I haven't been to and reserve comment on.


This guy is SO butthurt!
