Goodro's Chimney 5.6 4c 14 V S 4b  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Reservoir Ridge
According to John Gottman this is/was Goodro's favorite climb in the Storm Mountain Area... considering the cool routes around Storm Mountain, that is a pretty big motivator to go check it out.If you hike to the Reservoir Ridge area, the chimney is located high in the tan rock layer east of Reservoir Ridge. (See picture.) The approach is okay, head up the gully that is the descent of the full Reservoir Ridge route. (I can see that linking this climb to Reservoir Ridge would make the approach ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

This is a great place to take beginners on summer afternoons. Easy, confidence building climbs. Safe secure, super convenient approach. I use a 60m rope to set up topropes on the east face, a 50m seems potentially too short.

Could we get a topo or a photo of this area? I am trying to figure it all out...

Anyone have beta on the route to the right of Crack Face but to the left of Error of Our Ways? The crack that goes right up under the tree. My buddy led it a couple of days ago with a standard rack and a couple of BD Cams.

Sounds like a very proud 1st ascent.

Other than it being fairly straight forward and taking good gear?

I've led it a bunch over the years. I'm sure it's been soloed and led for a long time.

I'm sure that it had been led (and probably solo'd, it's pretty easy). Just curious of what it might be called and rated.

I read the same account as many of you also did of the horrific accident and suspected anchor failure here that occurred sometime late yesterday. I still don't know anything really about the accident, what happened, or what the full nature of the injury was. I wish the victim an uncomplicated and speedy recovery.
While we climbed the route no evidence of rock fall, rock scars, anchor failure, or anything that would have indicated an accident the day before was noted. I waited in line to climb. Everyone seemed to be having a good and safe day unaware of the previous day's event. None of the anchors on any of the routes on the wall were amiss.
