Comments: I gave this climb a good cleaning on 11/16/17. The pods were full of loose rock and a surprising amount of rock just fell off the face with just my hands.

Comments: in case you were thinking that Supercrack of Moab sounds cool, don't bother. The 1st pitch is so bad I had to wonder if most of it collapsed since last climbed- but still looks like the picture in the book. Then the crack itself is good, very sandy dusty mess.

Comments: I gave this a thorough scrubbing from top to bottom today. Bill and I were also cleaning the 2nd pitch of Law and Order.
Beware of Yellowjackets near the single bolt, big dead tree at top of 1st pitch of Law and Order, Bill found it the hard way.

Comments: Cleaned and sorta climbed the 2nd pitch today, started raining, the nerve, after more then 3 months without rain. I found the old bolt- rusty 1/4", no hanger. This pitch is supposed to be 10c, seemed harder the Ship called black rock.
I don't know how long it's been since this was last climbed, corner was full of vegetation, but strangely there was a cord-o-lete at the top with a locker on it? My friend Bill did most of the cleaning while I messed around on Ship called Black rock- ... more >>

Comments: I climbed this again, maybe just because it is now clean it seems easier. This was the first time i lead it without the tree stump and crack around it clean of dirt. It seemed more like 10a to me now.

Comments: Nick, is it ok if I take a dump at the base and put a little pile of rocks on it, also leave a dogpoop bag empty beer cans, cig butts and cliff bar rappers?

Comments: Nick, I think this was a attempt to stop hanger theft, this route had at least one hanger destruction episode.

Comments: did this again yesterday, noticed that the questionable flake at the start is now gone and a bolt added. It took a bit to figure out a move to get up to the slanting ledge, a much harder boulder move then it used to be, maybe 10b, I got that clean, and could not figure out why the 2nd bolt was added, the 3rd is pretty easy to get to. I ended up hanging at the roof which I thought easy before, thought it hard to protect, then cleaned it on the way down and could see good placements.

Comments: I wanted to try this and had seen the commentary on Squamishclimbing. so was planning on doing the old nut trick on the old flattened aluminum hanger and by the time I got there realized I had used my whole rack of nuts. I was really not wild about doing the moves without a bolt, so lowered down for a big nut to use on the hanger. This is a great crack, interesting weird features and very sustained, would be better I think if a new bolt was added. I actually had a bigger run-out below where expe... more >>

Comments: Michael, glad you got to get back on it and finish it, agreed that the 2nd pitch looks uncertain and dirty, but climbs well and lots of cool moves with plenty of pro. As you may have guessed the " bolt with aluminum hanger" was placed on lead hand drilled and that is why it is where it is. I might replace it and I would place it a bit up and right.

Comments: every time I think about repeating this route it just makes me so sad that they cut that beautiful drooping cedar at the top of the 2 or 1st 5.8 cracks that I don't really want to go back there. Some trees deserve to be saved and that in my mind was one of them.
