Comments: Pulled a big left hand of this today. Sketchy, almost hit my belayer, now the left hand is smaller and solid. Loose stuff should be less of a problem now that I cleaned this route really well. This route was a bomb because of how dirty it was, but now it's nice and clean and maybe even three stars, 2 1/2 at least! Getting to the first clip may look hard, but it is not. Make sure you bring a rap device for cleaning, as you must clean this route on rappel. The mantel at the end is awesome when you... more >>

Comments: Agree with Joe, definitely not chipped. It is a quarry, everything is blasted making it not natural. That’s why the climbing is better than regular Old Table. I don’t believe there is a single chipped hold at the East Quarry. If there is, I’d be surprised.

Comments: Hoping to be in Maui feb 8th- 22nd and would really like to try wingspan 12C or something in the 12a to 13a range if you need a partner or are a local that climbs I’d love to go on a climb or surf Safari. Feel free to call or text me at 720 280 0633 names Angus. Or hit me up on here Could be fun I’ll buy dinner and beers if you give me the local tour!

Comments: Could be wrong but bet it is in Arizona. Places like this should be kept a secret. Guessing they had to do some serious technical caving to get there.

Comments: Today the bee hive was more than half destroyed. I hope it wasn't due to climbers. Still lots of bees there in what was left of the hive.

Comments: Agree with Monty.

Quite possibly one of my favorite pitches of 5.12 in the state, Reality Check is the most perfect panel of rock that's five bolts around. Lots of good climbing packed into this pitch.

Comments: Huh, that's funny. I placed the nut before the first bolt and remember saying WOW that is a bomber, textbook, nut placement. Not totally necessary if you climb the grade, but I warmed up on this, so I placed it as it's not simple for the first move of the day. The bolt is close enough to easily stick clip if you don't have the nut and are not feeling it. Great route for starting of the day!!!

Comments: This route now sports 5 brand new Petzl, stainless steel, glue-in bolts. Greg German with my help removed all the old bolts and using the same holes for the new bolts. Can't wait to get on this climb once the white water at the base is gone!

Comments: A link-up would be starting on one climb and finishing on another that is not what this is. This is what I call a classic combo five hard routes in 24 hours. Logistics would definitely be key. Be psyched one day to tick this combo.

I love combos in climbing and canyoneering makes for a killer day!!!

In Escalante, Utah, my friend Aaron Smith and I did this with the Egypt slot canyons Egypt 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5 all in 24 hours made for a killer day and had never been done before. At first, we just jo... more >>

What an amazing looking route when I climbed with Ward Smith at Rumney he was saying it would be cool if someone sent this route barefoot. This route is super high on my radar.

Great route and great route to wire for a warm-up for this crag.

Comments: This route is as good as Undertow or The Shaft. I installed new carabiners, painted the chains on the two chain draws, installed a mussy hook, and fixed carabiner on the anchor, so now you can just clip and lower. Now you only need 13 draws. I found it really helped to put 25cm long draws on bolts four and nine if you want the perfect rope line with no drag. This route is a real gem!

Don't feed wild life it is bad for them and causes them to chew wholes in people's packs.

Comments: I found just having the draw hung was enough to make the clip reasonable. I also assume that the route setter was stick clipping the first bolt or putting in pro before attempting to hang the draw. I felt on the start if you stayed just right of the first two bolts it felt safe and pretty cool. My partner went left at second bolt, and it looked really unpleasant and not as safe. We didn't know it was a mixed climb and did the crack section to the last bolt with no pro, which is dead easy, bu... more >>
