Comments: Thanks Tom! This is definitely fun! Lived right at the mouth of Ogden Canyon for a summer and this was great as it had afternoon shade.

Comments: This climb is awesome. My first sport multi-pitch and it got me hooked. My partner and I got to the top and had nothing but smiles as we looked around the canyon. Didn't notice too much choss, but there are always pebbles falling. We did this a couple summers ago, and I'm planning a trip down there, hoping to get some friends on it as well! The scrample (P4) is interesting, but the first couple pitches are awesome, and the last 3 move boulder problem is fun!

Comments: Just got home from the West slabs. Took our group (4 ppl) 8 hours top to bottom with frequent breaks for a couple members. The climb was easy yet sustained, with frequent places for protection (we used a stopper set and a WC hexcentrics set). The bolted belays are really hard to find, but once you find one, you can usually find a few. We just used PRO to make a belay point anyways and skipped some of the belays which made the route only 8 pitches on a 60M rope.

The downclimb is sketchy. We foll... more >>

Comments: Just completed this Yesterday! Absolutely amazing experience. Started and ended at the parking lot. If you are a competent climber, don't bother belaying all the pitches. Such perfect weather. Careful, the night before got to the high 20's with some wind.
