Location: WY : Jackson Hole : Rodeo Wall : Redman (5.11a)
By: Daniel Nelson When: 3 days ago

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: slabby/polished start to fun roof and perfect patinas. Great warm up.

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.


Location: NV : Red Rock : Second Pullout : Black Corridor : Psychobilly (5.11-)

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.

Comments: Great route. Layback/undercling crux looks more intimidating than it is. Fun, easier climbing above.

Comments: Great variety of climbing - tricky layback flake down low to pockets on upper section. Cruxy move up top felt hard for grade, but may have missed an easier sequence. Climbed it early season as flake seems to house a wasp nest later in the summer/fall.

Comments: Fun Route. Sharp rock at the bottom, great movement through last two bolts. Felt pumpy for 5.10c, IMO probably at least one 11a move through the upper section.

Comments: Great route - fantastic moves with quality holds. one of my favorite routes in sinks.

Comments: Fantastic route. Steep with big, quality holds. Fun roof section. One of my favorites at sinks that I don't think gets much traffic. Felt 10c.

Comments: One of my favorite trad climbs in the teton area (more continuous quality climbing than guides wall in GTNP imo). Every pitch is quality rock and enjoyable. Undercling move on last pitch is spectacular. Nice to have copious bolted anchors as well.

Comments: Intimidating traverse to start to thin face climbing - very sequency with some of the best holds difficult to pick out on initial look. No one move is harder than 5.10a, but felt very sustained. A tad run-out. Hit up Birthday Suit further down the Buttress for a more cruiser 5.10a. I've done easier 10b/c than this. None of the above takes away from the high quality.

Comments: Fantastic Route mostly because of view from top/location. A 70m rope is enough to comfortably rap on. Intimidating Undercling start probably 5.8, but well protected with small gear prior to committing fully. The vast majority of this route is cruiser 5.6/7. Must do!

Comments: Well bolted 5.8. Big patinas start to finish. Great warmup. Great for a first sport lead as well.

Comments: Stick clip the first bolt - looks runout but easy climbing to second and third bolt - crux after the third bolt is well protected. Great warmup - 5.9 cruiser other than crux move. Can top-rope the stout 11a directly to the left.

Comments: This is a long slab climb start to finish. If you are not comfortable on slab, it will probably feel much more intimidating than 5.8 (as it did to me the first time I climbed it). Great training, however, if you need to become more comfortable on friction routes.
