Comments: The crux protects nicely with a #3 as you make the final move up and out of the chockstone pod. Short, but fun route that makes you think at the end.

Comments: #1s, #2s and #3s are all this climb needs. Might be able to place a #4 in the pod towards the top but easily protects with #3s above and below. For those with big hands the crux is the first ten feet then the hands get wider and comfier.

Comments: Light on the #1s and very heavy on the #4s. Could easily find room for 5 on the route. Great quality but felt like a bit of a sandbag. Awkward just under fist size over a offset roof and then finishes with overhanging tight hands to the chains.

Comments: Still a little sandy but cleaning up. Finger section at the bottom is fun.

Comments: Strenuous and a fun change of pace from the usual crack climbing. Anchor is equalized cord and I left a locker up there to facilitate rapping off. The bolt is disconcertingly loose. I didn't pry too aggressively but it's beyond just a spinning hanger. The drilled angle looks very solid, fortunately.

Comments: Pitch one is mostly .75s and 1s so it's great for folks with small hands. I have big hands so this felt quite challenging. Lots of rests keep the struggle minimal though.

Comments: Barely got a #4 in at the top, everything else was #3s and a #2 near the beginning. As many #3s as you feel like carrying. Took a #.75 and a #1 in the loose stuff at the very start. I've got big hands so this route was fantastic for me. Still chewed up some skin though.

Comments: The crux is down low as far as I could tell. Roof pulls over to the left decently. Fun moves.

Comments: Easy to throw a TR on this one from the ledge above. Moves weren't brutal but awkward clip stances.

Comments: Steep and not very obvious for a 5.7. A bit chossy. Shares chains with the 5.8 on the left.

Comments: The movement on this route is fantastic. It's also filthy in a few spots. Don't let the first 40 feet of the route dull your enthusiasm, this thing finishes strong. I was happy to have a double rack. Definitely a few suspect chunks of rock in/around the crack. Pull gently.

Comments: On the day we went to climb this route my partner had this page and all comments printed out. He forgot it in the tent. Thank God he did because the amount of confusing and contradictory information is staggering. Even the Bechtel guide is vague and not particularly useful.

The first two pitches are pretty easy to find and follow. The first pitch starts a little ways up after some 4th class terrain on the West side. A pair of cracks start you off. The left one (with the wide looking start) is t... more >>

Comments: Pulled off a few big holds. Just needs more traffic and people and it'll be a Maple Classic within spitting distance of the road.

Comments: Exciting for a 5.7. Some spots for a pretty long fall if you're not paying attention. Not much to hit, but it would be rashy.

Comments: This is a really exciting line. Has some great variety and is well protected, even for the squeamish. The final moves to the top are great. Extra interesting if the lichen is still a little slimy from rain. Great way to the top of the tower. Allows a TR to be set for the other two routes.

Comments: Pretty straightforward climbing. Just watch out for loose rocks at the ledge before the final bolt. A few of those are ready to come off.

Comments: We climbed this route in July 2016. Absolutely fantastic with the most exposure I've ever felt on a route. The summit pitch is so exciting it's almost unreal. Well worth the slog in from Redfish.

We got off the standard route pretty quick but I found it to be very pleasant anyway. Our Pitch 3 was different than standard. We climbed straight up the twin finger cracks (the one on the right was more secure and felt closer to 5.7). Instead of stepping left around the corner into the sandy g... more >>

Comments: Felt almost two grades harder than the 5.7 just a few feet to the right. Great route!

Comments: Climbed this today and noticed one of the large holds near the second to last bolt was loose. Feels like quite a few of the holds have come off in the last few years. I guess it shouldn't be a surprise, it gets a vicious freeze/thaw cycle being next to Storm Mountain Falls.

Comments: This wall was tough to find at first. It is very visible from the road, but distinct from the Vertical Smile wall. You wouldn't walk from Vertical Smile to Frolic, they aren't connected. Probably a quarter mile north on the road. Look for a pulloff on the west side of the road and a small cairn showing the social trail to the crag. Gets late morning and afternoon sun. Less than 5 minute approach.

Comments: Nothing smaller than a #.75 camalot and nothing larger than a #2 camalot will fit. Definitely thin hands and will feel like .9+ for the large handed. Has some good feet and rests in spots so it goes pretty reasonably. Very simple to bump cams too so it protects very easily with a double rack. Great stone, but short.

Comments: Quite a bit of loose rock between bolts one and two. I pulled off a big chunk of an important hand hold. It's a better foot now at least. Great moves up to the small ledge above bolt two.

I decided to bail at bolt three because I wasn't feeling particularly bold (as usual). The bolt is about chest level when standing on top of the small ledge. If you were to fall going above this bolt you would deck on the ledge and kiss your ankles goodbye.

I wanted to be psyched about the route, it looks lik... more >>

Comments: There are a couple of bolts that intersect Candyland about 2/3 of the way up. They follow another quartz dike from the left side but I have no idea where the start is. An adventure route for sure.
