Comments: This route was more fun than Slide. Didnt think bottom was chossy at all. Might have to start a bit left of direct then move up. Thought it was good slab route that got heady in a spot or two. If your there do it. Especially if your pumped from other routes.

Comments: Really liked this route. Quite varied in moment and holds. Expected to use left arete more, but found that really wasnt the case. Ended up moving right at rail then up and over to the slopes. Fun stuff.

Comments: Route seemed all over the place. I missed a bolt and didn't even realize it. Not really a clean line. If you have to choose between this and something else...do something else.

Comments: I have been looking around for the Uinta Rock book, however everyone seems to be out of the book and its out of print. Does anyone know if either the Rock Climbing the Wasatch Falcon Guide or the Rock Climbing Utah 2nd Edition have sufficient coverage for the Uintas? Many thanks for any feedback.

Comments: Fun start with different types of holds for this crag. You can crimp! Getting from the 4th both up and over to where you clip from is not only REACHY its also pretty lame and breaks up the flow of the route. Dont get sucked in under the roof with the great r.hand side pull. Its tough to get back out to the face and go for the reach.

Comments: The roof is really fun. All the holds are there for good clipping. From the last bolt keep your hands going right for better holds. If you try to go straight up you'll be struggling. Cheater tree at top to grab to clip anchors from if your about to bail.

Comments: Careful getting to the first bolt if you dont stick clip. I watched a number of people stuggle in fear to get to what looks like an easy first bolt.

Comments: I thought the mix of fun moves from slab to pulls and pump made this a really, really fun route. I thought it was much better than Rat Stew or Hey There Fancy Pants.

Comments: Several big moves in a row on slightly overhanging face will have you burning as you try to clip and pull the last roof. Act like a Manimal and grunt through it.

Comments: Fun Route. Face climbing to the arete. Ride the arete and make a few clips, then easy slabby climbing as you stay around the right side of the arete and up to the chains.

Comments: Concur with Lid. As of Dec 17, 2o10 first bolt (or two) was missing. As such, dont think this route gets much action.

Comments: Also lots of fun. All 3 routes on Rehab slab are fun. Did this after getting burned on Fish Eyed Fool and it was good "therapy" to get my confidence back.

Comments: Thought it was solid for grade. Try jamming and camming left hand in lower crack below first bolt then rock up to a good jug to clip the first bolt. Last good hold between last bolt and anchors was wet with melting water and ice on a sunny December day. Short but fun.
