Comments: The recommended gear here is a bit off. I would definitely bring a couple of .5 in. cams for the bottom, a majority of #1s and #2s for the middle (3 or 4 each), a few #3s for the top (3 is plenty) and a #4.

Comments: The last bolt was sticking out about 1/2", wasn't loose or moving so it seemed solid, just placed in a slightly awkward spot.


Location: Idaho > South Idaho > City of Rocks > Owl Rock > Owl Rock - West > Snack Break (5.9+)

Comments: Try bouldering up from directly under the first bolt for some added fun.

Comments: The first bolt is very high (maybe 35 feet), though the climbing is moderate to get there. From there all the most difficult moves are just above bolts. I thought this climb was just as hard as it's neighbor Heironimous Bosch. Spicy....yet very fun.

This seems to also be the route named "The Triangle". Location references climbs named "Obtuse" and "Regular". I believe these are the climbs "The Tan Streak" and "Black Gold" on this site.

There is some confusion here. I believe that the climb described here is also the one named Admiral Nelson. The picture here is of a climber on Canadians Finest.
