Comments: The last time I got on this route it sucked as it was early in the spring and things were full of dirt. I ended up bailing on the route as it was very chossy and I didn't trust my feet to be able to do the crux.

Definitly, one of the roughest 5.6 climbs I've ever been on.

Comments: Climbed on Side Effects on 2nd of Jan. 2013. Had an amazing time. The lower section leading to the roof is a 10a with a under cling move thats kind of fun then get scrunchy stuff traversing to the right.From there it is a high mantle type move with nothing but crap for a slope to pull yourself up and over. If you don't stick it prepare for a nasty whipper. I TR'ed it and my falls freaked the heck of people as you swing 20-30 out off the face. Once you clear the over hanging mantle, it cruises ... more >>

Comments: That is buffalo wall and there are two aid climbs both rated A3 Buffalo wall & Tatanka.

Funny that the hardman of the sport haven't tried to free these. Then again, it takes a hell of a lot of work to get back in to the base of these.

Love this area

Comments: Gents, It is also said that none of these routes have ever been freed. Lets see any of the proclaimed hardmen free this area.

Comments: found the route hard to lead but good rock for sandstone.

I love this formation with all the routes on it.

This is a great area to take a noob out to learn to place gear while still being on the deck.

Comments: This follows a crack/corner. There are pretty big dikes which you mantle. Some strectchy moves. Bolts at top of first pitch. Second pitch is short and real easy but little to no protection.

Gear up the Mid size c-4's

Comments: Climbed this last March and used a few c-4's as well as tried out Trango's mid-range Maxcams to supplement my rack. Liked the fact that the Max Cams fit in areas that my C-4's didn't fit as well.

Sweet route with interesting rock

Comments: I just got back from the end of Lyell Canyon around Donahue Pass. I was wondering if any one else has considered climbing much in the area.

There are some just beautiful walls up there.
