Comments: Messed up and left some gear...if anyone feels charitable let me know, if not I understand.

Comments: Definitely still 5.10.
As of last weekend there was a nut pretty well welded in right before the crux.

Comments: Bring at least one #4 camalot, #3's will be tipped out at best for quite a ways up there. Also, as Optimistic said above, this thing felt scary hollow and kinda loose...

Comments: Hard to think of a better 10a. Protects better than it looks through the thin sections.

Comments: Two #1's are very nice to have for the first pitch.
Third pitch is absolutely the best 5.8 I've ever done.

Comments: If Liquid Oxygen is a benchmark 12a, this climb is 12a. Just as difficult.

Comments: Really phenomenal route (I think it's cleaned up a lot since the early comments). Crux section where the feet disappear felt a bit harder than 10a, but the locks are good and so is the gear.


Location: Idaho > South Idaho > City of Rocks > Transformer Corridor > Live Wire (5.10c)
By: Tyler Needham When: May 16, 2017

Comments: Excellent! So much better than Live Wire. Main crux is at the beginning on bad jams, but you can throw a couple nuts and a cam in to protect. Redpoint crux is on sandy slopers up top. Best route on the wall.

Comments: Really really fun route. Definitely good for a leader new to the grade. Closely bolted, incredibly cool moves, beautiful rock.


Location: Utah > Wasatch Range > Rock Canyon > Ed and Terry Wall > Main Crack (5.7)

Comments: I walked a #3 for about thirty feet after the small roof. Worked just fine, the crack is so secure. Amazing crack to teach people how to handjam.

Comments: Loved this climb, definitely 5.10 (it's a step up from climbs like Sasquatch, Gordon's, Touch Up, etc). It's got a little bit of everything, incredibly fun!


Location: Utah > Wasatch Range > Little Cottonwood Canyon > Crescent Crack Buttress > Hand Jive (5.9-)

Comments: The crux at the beginning felt far harder than anything on Crack in the Woods, which felt soft for 5.8. This is much harder than any 8 I've done in LCC, and harder than a couple 9's as well. Also, the thin flake for the hand/foot match crux move is terrifying, has anyone whipped on that thing?

Comments: 5.8, great climb, really wish the sweet fingers section was 50 feet longer!

Comments: Single set of cams and nuts up to #2 with doubles in .75 is perfect.


Location: Utah > Wasatch Range > Little Cottonwood Canyon > Green Adjective Gully > After The Fall (5.9)

Comments: Favorite climb so far in LCC at the grade (I like it better than the Coffin and the other 5.9's in the Green A area). Varied climbing, intimidating features that aren't as hard as they appear from below, good gear where you need it.

Comments: Wondering if something broke on the route since the guidebook was published, considering the only hard part is about a v4ish move at the lip. Fun, worth doing, just soft.

Comments: Gear is small in questionable flakes, but there's a great horn to sling early on and the moves just get easier as you go. Fun!


Location: Utah > Wasatch Range > Little Cottonwood Canyon > Gate Buttress > Beckey's Wall Area
By: Tyler Needham When: Jun 8, 2016

Comments: He's not trolling. See Lee's comment above. If you were a new 5.7 leader coming up to climb Beckey's, it's an intimidating bit of climbing (harder than anything on the first pitch of Beckey's). Lowering isn't a bad idea either.


Location: Utah > Echo Canyon > The Dry Wall > Graffiti Patient (5.12b)

Comments: The crux is definitely that fourth bolt deadpoint. I feel like you just don't get a chance to rest your right arm at all up to that point, and your power is gone from the big moves earlier.


Location: Utah > Maple Canyon > Maple Canyon Road > Bridge Area > Hit Man (5.11b)

Comments: Hardest 11b ever. Crux felt at least V4.

Comments: Incredibly fun technical climbing. Keep going when you think you're out of gas, there is a solid rest up high!
