Location: Utah : Wasatch Range : Lone Peak Cirque : Question Mark Wall : Lowe Route (5.8)
By: Tyler Needham When: 4 days ago

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)

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!


Location: Utah : Wasatch Range : Big Cottonwood Canyon : Storm Mountain Picnic Area : Storm Mountain Island : Goodro's Wall (5.10c)

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)
By: Tyler Needham When: Oct 3, 2016

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.


Location: Utah : Maple Canyon : Left Fork : The Pipeline : Neptune Cocktail (5.12a)
By: Tyler Needham When: Sep 19, 2016

Comments: Wondering if something broke on the route since the guidebook was published, considering the only hard part is about a v3/4ish move at the lip. Fun, worth doing, just soft.

Comments: Very fun, trust that smear and crank up!


Location: North America : Canada : British Columbia : Squamish : Murrin Park : ... : Stairway (5.7 PG13)
By: Tyler Needham When: Jul 2, 2016

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)
By: Tyler Needham When: Sep 27, 2015

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


Location: Utah : Wasatch Range : Little Cottonwood Canyon : Hellgate Cliffs : East Hellgate : ... : Brain Doner (5.11b)

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


Location: Utah : Wasatch Range : Ferguson Canyon : The Watchtower : Watchtower Tiers : Scratchin' for the Loomer (5.12a)

Comments: Couldn't even finish it. Insanely difficult. Hardest 11 I've ever been on.


Location: Utah : Wasatch Range : Little Cottonwood Canyon : Bouldering : 5 Mile Boulders : Caress (V2-3)

Comments: This feels closer to V2/V3 max for LCC standards.

Comments: Took a few big running slab whips on Pearls Before Swine before I realized the route actually goes to the left...next time.


Location: Utah : Wasatch Range : Little Cottonwood Canyon : Bouldering : Cabbage Patch : Fat Albert Gang (V3)

Comments: Classic at the grade. I don't think it's harder than V3.

Comments: How late in the year does it generally stay climbable?


Location: Utah : Wasatch Range : Big Cottonwood Canyon : S-Curves : S-Curve - The Pile : Dog Pile (5.10c)
By: Tyler Needham When: Aug 10, 2013

view comment >>
Comments: I think with the right sequence this isn't any harder than 10c. Climb above the fourth bolt to better holds to clip from.


Location: Utah : Maple Canyon : Maple Canyon Road : Maple Corridor : West Wall : EIS (5.10b)
By: Tyler Needham When: Jun 4, 2013

Comments: Not sure if a hold broke off or something, but clipping the 4th?/5th? bolt is extremely difficult. At least .10c/d.
