Comments: Wow! Super long, sustained climb. I had to work for it all the way and nearly came off more than once. Super fun climb!

I have to say, I usually agree with the idea that cracks shouldn't be bolted.In a place like this, though, I wouldn't have brought all the gear down for one trad climb and would have skipped this one with limited time in town. This is an incredible climb and I'm stoked we were able to get on it!

Thanks!

Comments: As of June 2016 there are 3 main top-rope walls easily accessible. Compressor wall is almost directly East of the giant dirt mound visible from the parking area. Elephant wall is mostly South of the mound but is melting rapidly and no longer a major destination. By far the most popular as of late June is Lakeside (aka Rescue Wall) which has short easy walls, a couple near-vert routes and a large section of overhanging ice of varying difficulty. Lakeside is often occupied by one or more parties.

Comments: Climbed today and the anchors were fine. Hard to see until you get up over the ledge, but two good bolts with two rap rings each, see no problems or issues with this anchor.

Comments: The first go I felt like this was really bizarre and sandbagged - worked the moves and on the second go it was an easy and fun 10.b, just find the feet and the better holds, lot of chalk on bad stuff.

8. V1

Comments: Actually, it looks like the one they call "Six Foot and Curly" in the book; V4/V2 if you use the intermediate holds

Comments: Might this be an alternate to the V1 on that corner? Looks cool, wish I would have read more about it while I was there!

Comments: The description sounds like one listed in the Utah Bouldering book as 'Disorder' V2, but it is closer to the center of the face, to the left of Transmission. I didn't see anything like this on the right corner, but I could be mistaken.


Location: UT : Echo Canyon : Railroadside Crag : Unknown .10a (5.10a)
By: DCrane When: Sep 1, 2013

view comment >>
Comments: This felt harder than .10a, also a fall from the crux down low could put you onto the ledge, or into a rather unpleasant tree, even after clipping the first bolt. Make sure your belayer is on top of things and paying attention. And wear a helmet! a few loose things here still. Cool wall though =)

Comments: Obviously there is still a lot of potential for bouldering in this area - pick up the guidebook "Capitol Gorgeous" for more routes, or just go out and explore some different boulders - there are plenty laying around!

Comments: Great route, seemed clean - still some loose stuff on the rappel/lower so watch out for people standing under you on the way down.

Comments: There are a lot of options for hands that make this a lot harder. Once you find the correct sequence it gets way easier. Very fun route though!

Comments: Thanks Greg! Do you have names of any routes here? This was a great place to climb but I wouldn't know where to begin listing routes, let alone names for them. If you wish to keep it more secretive I'll respect that - though I don't understand it - but I would like to share as much info about the area as possible. This is a really amazing place to climb.
