Comments: That hold is still there? Except for that small detail, the best of the original routes.

Comments: Most routes were established by Amos Galpin in the early 90's. Known to be blocky and ledgey, the addition of several new routes on the shorter, but cleaner left side add to the crag's appeal. All-day shade!

Comments: Like it's neighbor, "Vacation Day", a little bit sporty.

Comments: With the exception of "American Graffiti", "Vacation Day" and the 2 "unknowns", all routes were established by Amos Galpin of Ketchum, ID. During the re-bolting in spring 2017, "Back to the Front" (11b) had a few bolts moved / added to make it user friendly.

Comments: Hey admin, As far as I know, Mark Weber's guide has been out of print for a long time. You can get a copy of my book "Idaho Underground" locally or online from Wolverine publishing. The book covers Dirks, lava tubes, Fins, etc, etc. Thank you.

Comments: I think there were issues with potentially loose rock in anchor zones above and to the right. The resulting traverse does seem a bit silly, but it's kind of fun. Thanks Steve for making it less scary!

Comments: I added the route information directly from the FA person, just before press time. No, this is not an A-list route, but I suspect plenty of folks will enjoy it, especially when nearby routes are occupied.


Location: Idaho > South Idaho > City of Rocks > Cannibal Corridor > Cannabinoid (5.10- A0)

Comments: Yes, the bottom of this route is perhaps best done by stick-clipping and yarding up to the first decent crimp. Otherwise it's a narsty 5.12 boulder problem with bad feet. You probably can leave the donkey at home though. Overall, a fun route(except for the bottom 10 feet) in a slightly out-of-the-way location.


Location: Idaho > South Idaho > City of Rocks > Flaming Rock > Raindance (5.7)
By: dave bingham When: Oct 2, 2017

Comments: Note: A number of climbers have walked too far left, past the somewhat in-obvious start of "Rain Dance" (5.7) and mistakenly got on the more direct line of "Tail Feather" (10a). It's easy to link in to "Rain Dance" from "Tail Feather", but you will find it a bit more challenging!

Comments: Brad - Thanks for the book plug!
Dan - Lack of detail is where MP fails, and offers only bare-bones info that's generally lifted from Local guidebook authors, who put a lot of time, effort and money into their work. I don't support MP(REI)taking that info and profiting from others efforts without compensation. Thanks for supporting your local guidebook author!

Comments: Some of the routes shown here are named, yet FA shows "unknown". Marc - do you want to chime in on this before all your routes get re-named?
