Comments: Bolts next to good looking cracks, Even one of the first ascent team comments on climbing this with gear... at least some gear. The cracks in the picture look clean and good. Granted this is limestone but I know of other climbs that have a mix of gear and bolts in the Wasatch. So when is it ok to bolt a crack?...

Comments: I am trying to figure out why there are bolts six inches from an easy to protect crack? I climbed it and placed bomber gear all the way up the crack...

Comments: I have to agree with grk10vq on this. We have spent a lot of time up there cleaning and scrubbing cracks in an attempt to make a really great area. The line that James FAed had been looked at and climbed in pieces. We wanted to make sure it was a worthy line for the area. This is one of those times where I think I might have posted up the new additions prematurely. (maybe I should have kept my mouth shut for awhile). There are still projects up there that we have been (are) working on. I rea... more >>

Comments: There is a crack right off the ground that is good for small nuts. There is a horizontal crack that takes blue and yellow tcu's. You have a bolt after that. If you are a 5.8 leader this route is right up your alley.

Comments: There is a better trail that follows the fin approach trail. 50-ish feet from the road cut left by a carn. Follow the trail through the woods. When you come to a big opening with a boulder sitting in the middle of it follow a faint trail, on the west side of the boulder, up the hill through an opening and up to the base of the climbs. 10 minute approach tops. As of right now there are 9 climbs that I know of in this area. 5.5 to 5.11b/c

Comments: The anchor for squeeze my lemon has been replaced and moved about 15 ft higher to finish out the crack. 2 bolt anchor. The tree is just about dead and is growing on a death block at the top of a flake. The block should be moved in the next week. WITH THE NEW ANCHORS ONE 60 METER ROPE MADE IT TO THE GROUND AND THE NEXT TIME WE CLIMBED UP THERE, A DIFFERENT 60 METER ROPE LEFT THE ENDS HANGING ABOUT 10 FT OFF THE GROUND. I am going back again this week with yet another 60 to try to get a better r... more >>

Comments: I spent a year climbing at Devil's Lake and loved the climbing--one of the few reprieves in a flat land for a mountain lover from the West. I think the grades are about the same as elsewhere Just different types of rock with different skill sets. It will be fun someday to go back and climb there again.

Comments: This route is fun, you wouldn't expect such a good route hidden in this area but both the routes on this wall are a great time. I have worked most of the route and it is still a little over my head. the Gear and bolts are good. Working the moves is a blast. I would recommend it.
