Comments: I love this problem. I liked to cut feet and get a little kip going to move up to the holds over top of the bulge.

Comments: Dan Russell had some cool video footage of Jeff Russell on this climb on the web somewhere. Whatever happened to those Russell boys?

Comments: If you plan on visiting Triassic, be aware of recent developments. Please take the time to read this thread about how representatives of the Salt Lake Climbers Alliance are working with a mining company to preserve climber access:

Comments: Maybe this could be a good thing for the mag?

FROM ALPINIST NEWSWIRE:

" ...Urban Climber, which began in 2004, focuses on bouldering, gym and sport climbing. Now that it is the parent company of Climbing Magazine, Climbing "might not feel quite so much pressure to target the youth" with its editorial, according to MacDonald..."

Not that I have anything against youth, but it'd be nice to see more trad and alpine in the rag, and fewer bling bling Blurr ads and plastic comp kiddies spewing " o... more >>

Comments: There are 10(!) bolts + a 2 bolt anchor with rings. We used a sixty and had plenty of rope for lowering and rapping, just belay high in the gully and lower/rap to the right of the tree and scramble down.

Comments: There are no parking signs posted on the gate at the end of Cascade. Last week we parked on the street away from any drives, but we still came back to our car to find a nice little warning note left by a resident...

Take this as you will.

Comments: Some of the info I have given is based on my own experience and from conversations with others in the area. As a result some nomenclature may be incorrect. I believe the ratings I have given are about consensus.
If anyone (i.e. Dan, Ric, Jeff, Bueller) knows better than I, or if you made the first ascent of any problem, let me know so I can edit the route info and give credit where it is due.

Comments: Summer 2005 camping was $8 per night. Because the canyon offers good car camping close to Tooele, it is VERY popular on weekends and crazy around holidays. I would also advise that you avoid the place during during hunting seasons because it is very hard to find parking anywhere along the road. You will be continously contending with hunter traffic.

Comments: 9+ imo. But I suppose I could attribute that to my ape-like arm span and featherweight classification.
