Comments: These drawings were done in about 1965 by an artist nahed Len Roope ( now deceased). He became a very well know Lake District artist mainly water colors . By the 1990's his paintings were demanding high prices.
Google "Len Roope artist." He was a friend of Paul Ross who with Mike Thompson wrote this Guide Book to the Borrowdale valley .

Comments: A little bit of history of the first ascent.Half way up the final bolt ladder the piton hammer head fell off ! We only had one hammer so had to retreat back to the hardware store in Moab buying a $8 claw hammer... returning the following day to place the final points of aid.

Comments: Might be... I have not seen what Chris Kalous wrote... the term Happy Submarine ? Happy Submarine seems inappropriate and a daft name for that area.

Comments: Cell phone reception is not bad from the Eastern Reef as of May 2015. Actually on the Eastern Reef slabs( South San Rafael Swell) there are a lot of climbs that a beginner would enjoy providing he is not leading "1000' of Fun" being one.

Comments: Agree great piece of rock . We did find a easier scramble in that area to traverse the skyline years back when we were doing climbs on the Tombstone.Miss that area now here in the damp UK

Comments: On the FA we used 60m ropes. Well this is slab climbing the world over be it be Whitehorse ledge in NH or the Glacier Point Apron slabs in Yosemite they are runout,that's what makes slab climbing interesting as the grade is often not that high.I guess more so in Utah and Colorado crack climbing and sport with lots of protection is more the norm.So until you get more familiar with this type of climbing it will feel a little freaky .

Comments: Yes myself and Julia Blake thrashed to this then unclimbed slab sometime in 1975. Put up a route what I though the most prominent looking section .The slab had many dragon fly's zipping about ..thus the name .That's about all I remember.I never returned as in those days I considered such a crag was not worth the hike....[bushwhacking from the Kanc. Ed.]
