Location: WY : Grand Teton National Park : Blacktail Butte : Upper Blacktail Butte : Red Chili (5.10a)

Comments: Mostly 5.9, but a couple5.10 slabby/thin moves above first bolt. Enjoyable.

Comments: 3 bolts. Fun warm up. If you follow the bolt line straight up from the ground it is definitely 10a. Probably can be made 9+ if you stay right at start and finish.

Comments: Fantastic warm up. Big holds throughout. 10a if you've climbed it before, but some big holds that are hidden and a mandatory traverse to the second bolt can make it a tricky onsight for the 5.10 leader. Best 5.10 (although limited competition) at BTB.

Comments: Best 11- at blacktail, but don't tell anyone because its the only one that isn't at all polished. Far more enjoyable than Inconceivable on lower BTB. Sustained technical movement through lower section; sequency crux clipping bolt and getting above ledge. Nice 5.10 moves above ledge to finish. Must do.

Comments: Great route. Fantastic exposure, movement, rock quality. Definitely think at least 10c for the upper pitches; holds/sequence not obvious and very sustained. I wouldn't send anyone less than a comfortable 5.11 leader up this for their first go at it.

Rapping to the anchors above the first pitch is sketchy as mentioned. Required a swing and clipping a draw through a bolt to pull on to finally get me over to the anchor. A block or prussik of some kind is recommended.

Comments: Insanely fun. positive crimpy/slabby easy, but fun start to overhung pump jugs. Crux midway up upper face with small pocket and thin feet. Excellent steep, juggy finish. A must do at the grade. Hit up Red Rider just to the right for one of the best 5.10- at the iris.

Comments: Wanders in and out of seam to face. Fun climb. Found it clean. Well bolted, good pockets.

Comments: Underrated. A fantastic warm-up for Gaucho/Zorro. Fun, varied climbing throughout. Stemming -> Pockets -> layback crack. Seemed clean.

Comments: My first 11d lead. Reachy/techy start then steep but surprisingly big holds through middle section to tricky finger crack finish above upper bulge. Agree that no one move seems 11+, but quite sustained 10+/11-. A must do.

Comments: easy slabby start to one very tricky crux move at overhang with somewhat hidden, essential side pull. Upper section spaced bolts, but easier climbing on patinas to anchors.

Comments: Fun Roof move to start then eases. Fun climbing. 10a maybe, definitely not 10b.

Comments: My favorite route on the wall. Two cruiser roofs with excellent patinas that thin out to a crux 2/3 up. A must do at Rodeo Wall.

Comments: Fantastic route; one of my top 3 favs at the city. Starts easy to two cruxy sections the top being a very committing move.

Comments: Top section was stellar. Bottom very awkward along seam and getting to second bolt.

Comments: Felt very sustained/hard for the grade. Just about every move felt 5.11. 3 widely spaced bolts in true city of rocks fashion. Hardest 11b I've experienced.

Comments: This climb is super fun; novelty start is awesome then incredible huge juggy patinas to a tricky right-traverse finish above your last piece. One of my top 3 favs at the City.

Comments: Got this one in end of April mostly because it was on a friends bucket list. The climbing was spectacular on EVERY pitch.

That said, you need to be willing to suffer through 9 hanging belays and 9 subsequent rappels from hanging stations expecting to have 2-3 people at each station due to always having multiple groups on route. Your rope WILL get stuck on the way down. Also, dress warm even in the spring/summer as you're in the shade/wind almost the whole route. Was fun, but painful due to the... more >>

Comments: Tricky Crux down low leads to a pump fest. Definitely well described as a harder, more legit 5.11 version of Glitter Gulch and almost equally as fun.

Comments: Probably soft for grade, which is probably why it's my first 5.11 onsight. Regardless, sustained, pumpy jugs top to bottom make for my favorite sport route at Red Rock. Get this one and its neighbors. All stellar. The climbs on this wall are underrated IMO.

Comments: Fantastic route. Ideal warm up. Felt it was well bolted. A reachy crux down low leads to easy, incredibly fun climbing through Huecos. Soft for grade.

Comments: Very crimpy/smeary crux - unsure if something has broken off or maybe my sequencing was poor, but crux felt really hard compared to other 11a in the area. Climbing before and after was fun/easy.

Comments: Fantastic route; more of a short, pumpy, super fun boulder problem. Be careful not to Zclip the crux as the bolts are so close together (whoops). FYI Bolts were somewhat loose (spun a bit) as of 4/27/14 as are many in the area.
