The Cottonwood Traverse Easy 5th 1+ 3 I 5 M 1c  Utah : Wasatch Range : ... : Mt. Superior / Monte Cristo
This is a lot of fun!The climb starts on the S. Ridge of Superior. Start at the lowest point on the ridge at the most open spot to avoid bushwacking. 3,000' 5.6 (easier or harder depending on how many boulder problems you decide to do)Cross over to Monte Cristo easily. Drop down off Monte Cristo (be careful, this is the crux although it's easy 4th)Now it's up n' down and up again for a long long time until you clamber up Dromedary Peak (don't cheat stay on the ridge).A heatbreaking descent down,...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

Does anyone know if there are any climbing lines on Guert's Ridge? (Guerts is on Mt. Olympus and is the the rock that starts halfway up the mountain and goes to the top.) Guerts is only one line of many that are waiting to be climbed. Anyone have ideas, suggestions or the drive to explore??

Guert's ridge does have a route in fact, Guerts Ridge 5.5 (Irene Guert,O'dell Peterson, Harold Goodro 1940's!)!" It's a fun one too, especially in winter for added flavor. Check out the description in the Mt Olympus section. My favorite of the olymps slogs...as it ends right on the summit and has some fun moves interspersed with log, but aesthetic easy sections. a great solo (though you must carry a rope for the raps)
