Comments: The fixed ropes are no more. A bit of unprotected 5.2 climbing required.

Comments: The Grand gets climbed by dozens of parties every day. The hired guides do a great job making sure the anchor is in good shape.

Comments: Yeah, sorry Craig. I should have given you credit for the great photo. If you have any concerns about me reusing it, I am more than happy to remove it.

The internet makes it too easy to think that all this media is just part of the collective world. My bad.

Comments: The anchor consists of an aluminum hanger and a tied off shrub. You might bring along some webbing.

Comments: A must do route for the grade with amazing views and position.

To find the route head up the middle fork trail towards the natural arch. After about ten minutes of walking you will pass a large cobble boulder (bigger than a car) on the right of the trail. Turn to your left, leave the trail, and cross the stream. If miss the boulder, the trail soon cross the stream. That should be your sign to turn around and go back about 150 feet. After you have crossed the stream at the boulder you will see a... more >>

Comments: Great multipitch climb to the rim of the canyon.

To find the route: When you are standing in the entrance to the parking lot with the toilet, turn and face down the road. The route is across the river on the face to the left of the buttress to your right. Walk down the road about thirty feet to where you can access the river easily. Walk through the grass looking for a faint trail that follows the river to your left. Follow this trail. It becomes more defined as you go. Cross the river and foll... more >>

Comments: As of Summer 2009 this tree stump has fallen over. However, the trail was vary visible and marked with large cairns. Just be on the look out for it and you shouldn't miss it.

Comments: This route makes a great addition to Rock Canyon since there are few long multipitch climbs. Additionally, the top out onto the summit of the buttress makes for a great end. Enjoy the views as you climb and spread out on the spacious belay ledges.

Even though the exposure is intimidating on the first pitch the bolts are well placed for all the crux moves.

Comments: BFF stands for Best Friends Forever. Named because of the routes similar appearance to the childs friendship charm.

The "offwidth" section at the top is protectable with smaller gear at the back of the crack removing the necessity of bringing along larger pieces. There is also no "offwidth" technique required to move through this short part.

Four #2 friends, 1 #3, and 1 #4.5 or #1 for the offwidth, will really sew it up.

Comments: Interesting rock and arete. You even get to climb to the top of a small tower. Nice and shady. What beginning climber could ask for anything more?

Comments: Great job on this area Crisco and Tristan. This makes a really great addition to Rock Canyon as a really good family/beginner area. Easy access from the trail, shady, no cliffs to worry about the kids falling off of, and quality short beginner routes. Thanks for all your hard work.

Comments: Having led this route several times now I have a hard time understanding the 5.9 rating. Either it is contrived (only climb to the left on the face) or it is way overrated. If you use the holds on the right and then transition over to the left for the last bolt around the arete the route is super easy and you are never more than an arms reach from a bolt. I would suggest 5.7. Am I missing something here?

Comments: The Mr. Numbers anchors do make a cleaner top rope, but then you miss the crux of the climb as you pull over the top.

Comments: Hats off to Perin for doing a ton of work cleaning up this climb. It is now a really fun route, with good gear, an easy approach, and nice moves. Hand cracks, finger cracks, face moves, layback, even an optional offwidth if you would like.

Walk off to the North by down climbing some easy 4th class.

Comments: If you do both pitches the walk off is the way to go. Just head left towards the gulley and you will be down in half the time of the raps.

Comments: The rock is great quality. The belay stations are well positioned (although exposed) and completely bomber. Two short cruxy spots make it hard 5.9. Make sure your leader is comfortable at the grade because a fall almost anywhere on the route would be very painful due to the ledge/chimney nature of the route.

The summit is awesome, but unfortunately we did not get to enjoy it because of the high winds that we experienced that day. However, we were completely sheltered form the south-west wind un... more >>
