Comments: Fantastic route. Well bolted with great holds. 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.

Comments: Fantastic - great location/view. Great variety of climbing. Slab on top not as runout as many other slab finishes in the City. Hit up this on your way back to the lot after doing Skyline for an amazing morning of climbing.

Comments: Still unsure the safest way to the first bolt on this route - I tip-toed my way up a slab to climbers right of the start. Another option would be to climb directly up and clip a runner through the first bolt of the climb to the immediate left. It did feel sketchy getting to the first bolt proper. I got some good advice to bring a #2 cam to protect the move to the first bolt as even after a huge runout you still need to get on the face to make the clip. It's not hard, but it's death if you ... more >>

Comments: One of the most unique climbs I've ever had the pleasure of doing - extremely fun. So well bolted, you feel like you're on top rope the whole climb. Bring 18 draws if you plan to clip them all - I was able to comfortably retrieve draws below me at least 6 times to conserve.


Location: ID : Castle Rocks : Castle Rock : West Buttress - South : Shock and Awe (5.10a)

Comments: One of my fav routes of all time. Mentally challenging more than physically - thin edges for feet and hands on very positive face with spaced out bolts. A must do in the city/castle area.

Comments: Very Do-able 10c - IMO 3 powerful 10c moves and the rest is cruiser. Tricky getting to the bolt under the crux, but then well protected fantastic finish. I'd Stick clip the first bolt unless very comfortable on polished slab.

Comments: extremely well bolted (16 of them). fantastic pockets start to finish. my personal favorite route at sinks. mostly 5.9 with a few 5.10a moves. cruxy move over a bulge at the top.

Comments: slabby start is actually enjoyable. followed by poorly bolted, run out dihedral with few solid feet. My least favorite route ever climbed at sinks. skip it.
