Comments: I thought this route was a total squeeze job. You climb the start of Pilgrimage, then move left for a couple bolts, but then end up clipping the second and third to last bolt from the holds on Pilgrimage until you finish on Pilgrimage again. Just do Pilgrimage, IMO.

Comments: LOL! If you guys think this is polished, then you've never climbed at Rifle or Les Bruxes! It's a bit greasy for sandstone, but it's still sandstone. You're not going to slip off the holds unless it's full sun and 80 degrees or hotter. This route was so much fun. I highly recommend it.

Comments: It should be noted that when you are driving from St. George, it's the second turn off marked
Mojave Desert
Joshua Tree Road
Scenic Backway

I know this is obvious if you use your odometer, but we didn't and drove down the first turnoff for a very long time before we realized our mistake.

Also, I thought the rock at Black and Tan and Kelly's Rock was less than stellar. But I'm pretty spoiled when it comes to lime... more >>

Comments: Is there a better description of the approach anywhere online? We are planning on going there tomorrow and I don't want to get lost. Thanks.

Comments: Amazing route! I think it's more like 15 bolts. Felt harder than the route to the left to me, but a friend onsighted this and fell on the other, so who knows. They are both awesome.

Comments: The upper crux is so technical. Very thought provoking climbing.

Comments: Really fun 7a first part with technical cruxes. The extension is called "La Vie En Rose" and goes at 7b+. It's good, but rope drag can be a problem so extend the first anchor. Also, head left into the crack towards the top. I didn't and fell.

Comments: Good route with one really tough move past a big pocket.

Comments: Starts at the bottom of 2 fixed lines. Approach from the trail straight up after crossing the stream. This is the best 7b+ I've ever done. So amazing. Do not miss it!!!

Comments: The holds felt slimy, but other than that it seemed like a cool route.

Comments: I am loving the climbing here! I have to disagree and say that if you're choosing between here and Kalymnos, you should chose here! The climbing is much more varied and wild. It's cheaper to stay here. You can stay in a nice place in Antalya and rent a car for cheap and drive 30 min to the crag for way cheaper than anything in Greece. Short approaches too. Turks are very friendly and great food.

Comments: Consider either top-roping this route to clean it or clean while lowering. It's quite dangerous to clean on rappel due to the slanting nature of the climb. I keep watching people do this, and it's quite unnerving.

Comments: This route feels 2 letter grades harder than Pockets of Dirt (the one to the left). It's more solid now.

Comments: The well chalked route to down the talus to the left of Wings of Desire (if you're looking at the wall). Stay right for 10b, go left around the 3rd or 4th bolt for 11a. Be aware that clipping the last bolt on the 10b requires a rather committing move off a ledge. The moves are all there, but you better have your lead head on if this climb is at your limit!

Comments: Park in the upper lot and follow the signs. Do not park in the lower lot and walk past the Fortress or you will be doing a lot of extra walking!

Comments: The new parking is at the end of Smyth Road on the east side of the lake. If you drive around the lake, you'll see a sign for Skaha Bluffs. Follow Smyth Rd up the hill. Park at the lower parking for the Fortress, Doctor's Wall and all climbing beyond that. Park at the upper lot for the Great White Wall, The Belfry and other climbing areas in the vicinity.

Comments: I finally got to do this route! Thanks to Andy for finding me a great partner who could lead the hard trad pitches. I did layback the majority of the Split Pillar while seconding. Once it widened past red cams, I couldn't jam. I was able to rest here and there, but I'm not sure I could have placed gear.

Also, I lead pitch 3 and was too short to reach the bolts on the bolt ladder. I got the first one, barely, but couldn't clip the second. I'm only 5'0", but if shorter women are looking to ... more >>

Comments: If Churning is 13a then this is 13b for sure. That's what it's rated in the newest Smith guidebook.
