Comments: The first go I felt like this was really bizarre and sandbagged - worked the moves and on the second go it was an easy and fun 10.b, just find the feet and the better holds, lot of chalk on bad stuff.

Comments: Actually, it looks like the one they call "Six Foot and Curly" in the book; V4/V2 if you use the intermediate holds

Comments: Might this be an alternate to the V1 on that corner? Looks cool, wish I would have read more about it while I was there!

Comments: The description sounds like one listed in the Utah Bouldering book as 'Disorder' V2, but it is closer to the center of the face, to the left of Transmission. I didn't see anything like this on the right corner, but I could be mistaken.


Location: UT : Echo Canyon : Railroadside Crag : Unknown .10a (5.10a)

Comments: This felt harder than .10a, also a fall from the crux down low could put you onto the ledge, or into a rather unpleasant tree, even after clipping the first bolt. Make sure your belayer is on top of things and paying attention. And wear a helmet! a few loose things here still. Cool wall though =)

Comments: Obviously there is still a lot of potential for bouldering in this area - pick up the guidebook "Capitol Gorgeous" for more routes, or just go out and explore some different boulders - there are plenty laying around!

Comments: Great route, seemed clean - still some loose stuff on the rappel/lower so watch out for people standing under you on the way down.

Comments: There are a lot of options for hands that make this a lot harder. Once you find the correct sequence it gets way easier. Very fun route though!

Comments: Thanks Greg! Do you have names of any routes here? This was a great place to climb but I wouldn't know where to begin listing routes, let alone names for them. If you wish to keep it more secretive I'll respect that - though I don't understand it - but I would like to share as much info about the area as possible. This is a really amazing place to climb.

Comments: I actually really like this climb. Interesting stuff for the grade. Climbed it as a highball boulder with my one little pad. One sketchy looking section near the top but easy enough to do solo if you're comfortable with the grade. Just test your holds before committing.

For sorting this would be between Fearless and Tweedle Dee

Comments: Gave this one a lower rating as the landing is no fun. Starts in the trees, but it's a good climb

Comments: Emerson, I believe you are referring to the same boulder I was on today. If you are looking for information on it I wish I could help. I added it under the Warm-up Area as the Eastern Boulder. If anyone has more info on anything in this area please share!

Comments: In the current (late Autumn) conditions, it is possible to cross the stream directly to this boulder from West (down canyon) of the parking area. Higher water will require walking East to cross and doubling back.

Comments: I did the V0 standing and then repeated from the crimpy sit start. I would have to agree this makes it harder, but maybe to a V1+ at the most. Can't see calling that a V3. If you keep left instead of walking right on the large rail near the top, I could see that that looked much more difficult. Maybe that is where the V3 is coming from?
