Comments: Kind of a lame route. Climbing straight up the bolt line is way hard. On my second attempt with weather rolling in, I eeked out right and felt kind of dirty. According to the guidebook, this is the way to go, but it would have been nice if the bolts followed the climbing better.

Comments: Only about 10, maybe 15 feet of interesting climbing on this, and it is really dirty. The main seam feature seeps for long periods after wet weather.

Comments: Note that photo on page 91 in the blue Shelf Road Rock Book has a snafu with the numbers. In the photo, the line shown as #12 is Best For Your Stick. The route on the left side of the arete (shown as #11) is Sex Wax, 11a.

Comments: Here is some additional info to help you find the trail: head west along the road in the bottom of The Bank, past the marked trail for the Piggy Bank. A few hundred yards later, there will be a section of road that is adjacent to a cool, little section of the creekbed that has a wall of white rock along it. Maybe a 100 yards past this, there are small cairns on both sides of the road that mark the trail to Peg Leg. The cairns are in a pretty non-descript piece of the road, and the trail is fain... more >>

Comments: IIRC, you can get in a good orange hb offset brass and pretty much have a TR at the crux. bolt is completely unnecessary here.

Comments: Wow, what a route. The lower section is fairly temperature/humidity dependent - you want cool and dry for this section. The upper crux, even more so. Clipping the 4th bolt is really intense. From the ground, it doesn't look like much, but when you get up there, you will see what I mean. The climbing through this section is brilliant, and it seems like this 8 foot section is more like 20 feet. The last crux, God help you if you aren't tall with a good reach. You will need to go full beast mode he... more >>

Comments: I really liked this route. Easy climbing up to about the 4th bolt, then one or 2 really hard moves, followed by endless fun 9/10a climbing. You will want to be properly warmed up for the crux as it is pretty tendon intensive.

Comments: Good route that is a bit easier (in some ways) than the surrounding 12a's but makes up for it in other ways.... Getting to the 3rd bolt is a little bit in your grill. Top part isn't hard but isn't super casual considering the bolt spacing and occasional friable rock.

Comments: Yeah, looks like The Turd. Direct goes out the right side of the elevator shaft to the climber's left. Great photo though - The Turd would be heinous with old shoes and old gear.

Comments: hmmm, i wonder if the pillar has shifted some? the last time i did it, maybe 2010(?) you could get a #4 C4 in a slight pod about midway up (crushed in there and not very deep). also you could get a #4 up near the very top. the main dihedral was all super tight 3.5 camalot (4 friend), or really tipped out #3 camalots (3.5 friends).

super route, either way!

Comments: hmm, that's an interesting guess. the flake on the right looks like the one of SF. my guess would have been ham on rye.

Comments: i am slowly trying to go through all of the walls and clean up some of the routes. unfortunately i have been buried at work for a while, and it will be like that for another month or two. i have been saving cat wall for last (been trying to pick the low hanging fruit first).

Comments: This is a pretty fun route, definitely worth doing if you are in the area and have ticked some of the nearby classics. The crux is indeed pretty bouldery, with kind of a power/body position blend. The lower climbing has mixed rock quality but is actually pretty fun.

Comments: Fantastic route. The climbing is super fun. I've seen probably a dozen people do it, and it seemed like everybody found a different way to get through the crux. If it seems like you are deadending, take a step back and try some other things. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Comments: This is a good route and is pretty representative of Escalante climbing. The finish is probably more exciting for the follower than the leader, so keep that in mind.

Too bad the variation immediately to the left fell down, as it was quite good also.
