Location: Utah : Jungle, on the Aquarius Pla... : Banshee Wall : One (5.9+)

Comments: Worth doing due to the fact that you get two for the price of one.

Comments: Not as bad as it looks but could improve with more assents and metamorphic hardening of the rock.

Comments: The sun is out and it is not raining, but the temp.s have got cold. Seems that the season has closed down the J. I want to thank all those who made the long haul to the the Jungle to climb, and especially thank those who donated gear for the project as well as those who helped develop more lines. We now have about 180 lines (not all published). I always said that when we reached 200 it was time for a guide. Starting that process now. We will be adding some new areas to the Jungle soon that ... more >>

Comments: A good line which took a considerable amount of work and skill.

Comments: The hike is not that arduous. That is, IF the winter did not produce an exuberant number of Tumbleweeds (Salsola kali), but, it is flat and well trodden by a myriad of cows, thus making it easy for we craggers who want a well defined trail to our destination.

Comments: IF you follow Trevor's beta on how to get to this place, you are in for a treat! The strange and picturesque formations are FAR better than the limited scapes found at the Wahweap Hoodoos. That hike is 8 km. round trip and is a wet slog!

Comments: The Labor Day Weekend was great. Thanks to all who showed up. The nights are cool now and the colors are starting to turn. Season to climb here is starting to close. End of Oct. and we are most likely done.

Comments: The loose "death block(s) have been removed by Darren Knezek. Thanks! The climb is now much better than before! This line climbs much better than it looks and has a great deal of movement w/o any expected rope drag. Well worth doing!

Comments: As to the "openbook" commit, what is the parks take (management plan) for climbing, hardware, etc?.

Comments: Some real old school fun can be had in this gaping maw by both the young and the young of heart.

Comments: Did this again. Same thoughts, but would suggest bringing a wide range of small nuts of many different shapes, manufactures, and sizes. A well fit nut is hard to find, but a gift from the Ape Gods.

Comments: I see you are slumming it a bit in the short zone. Hope to see you on a rather more challenging substrate soon.

Comments: The loose block, "X", has been removed that once resided between bolts 1 & 2.

Comments: That aforementioned "X" block near the first anchor has been crowbarred free. The stance for this first anchor is now much improved!

Comments: The direct start is not on the best rock. The "pink" line is on great rock and has fun moves. The chimney is a hoot and the BEST place to belay this line. So...the "S" shape appears. The roof has some cleaning needed. But the "future" lines look like really great prospects.

Comments: Even though a thoughtful extension of clips is needed to eliminate rope drag, I think folks will enjoy this one.

Comments: If you park on Dolores Court, take the trail around the end home, down the fence line to the hole, then walk the drainage to the spillway where the trail heads right or north to the falls, it is not so bad. BUT do not do it in summer and plan on at least 45 min.s.

Comments: If raptors are there...do not climb! This will create access issues for both the birds and the climbers.

Comments: What would they think of the Jungle? Or worse yet, the Grand Staircase? Well said Boissal! Adapt and enjoy whatever you climb...or back off and give credit to those who went before you. Whining is beneath us craggers, though I do it now and then.
