Kevin Brown leading the shotgun!


The route follows a splitter crack into the highest corner of the roof. At the corner step out of the roof and ascend to the anchors.


This route is located toward the north end of the Utah Wall.


Set of stoppers and cams from .4-3 Camalot (you could bring and use a 4 if you really want to).

We wondered how the climb could only be a 5.6 until we got to the roof and realized how easily it was cleared by stepping out to climbers left. Very fun climb and easily protected.

After reaching the anchors we went up, then traversed left the the anchor atop Utah Crack. It was a bit of a lichen-fest but fun to explore. Not sure what the name of that traverse is but it was easy climbing.

I was able to climb this sport by reaching climbers right for the bolts on Lawyers, Guns, and Money. The roof-crux would probably be better protected with pro., but for the climber without a rack, it is doable.

If you continue above the bolts, you can add another really short pitch and hit a set of chains that I believe are there for "Airtime". The guidebook does call this a 2 pitch climb though, so maybe they really are for "Shotgun".

Love the moves through the roof! A tough fit for a 6'3" climber with a large frame (read: ME!), I wound up twisting around and stemming with my back to the face and let out whoop when I pulled over the top. After, I commented to my partner that maybe we should rename it to "Twist and Shout." :-)
Good fun and lotsa pro
