Location: UT : Maple Canyon : Right Fork : The Minimum Crag : Minimum Effort (5.10d)

Comments: ALL new routes are choss in Maple until they get a bunch of traffic, I think this thing will be one of the best 5.10's in the canyon once it has seen about 1,000 ascents. The climbing on it is great and the rock quality gets better the higher you go, it's actually really bomber at the top.

Comments: I highly recommend CU Belay Glasses or Belay Specs as well. Sure you look goofy but when most of your neck pain/problems go away you won't care. They take a few days to get used to, start by just toprope belaying until you are comfortable with them. Also, don't tell me they are too expensive... you pay how much for shoes? Every 6 months/a year? These will last for many years if you take care of them. If you're still too broke... more >>

Comments: I always tell my friends who are getting into climbing, "if you want to climb hard, you need to learn to LOVE crimps," I'll agree that the roof is a bit awkward, it's also SHAAAAAARP, but I thought overall the route was good crimpy fun.

Comments: It would be awesome if someone could sort the routes left to right now that it's an option. I'd do it myself but apparently you need administrator privileges or something? It won't let me.

Comments: Wanted to only give it three stars because some spots were pretty sandy, a foot hold or two started to crumble, there were a few hollow sounding spots, and one or two holds wiggled like they were ready to break. However, it climbs REALLY well, and that last pitch is one of the best I've done so... four stars it is. My opinion is that the crux on the third pitch is only slightly easier than the crux on the second. The books grades are Pitch 1 - 5.11a, Pitch 2 - 5.12a, Pitch 3 - 5.11c, Pitch 4 ... more >>

Comments: Not the most amazing climbing I've ever done but some of the coolest limestone pockets I've ever grabbed. Lay your hand flat at the top and watch it stick like velcro... sweet! but ouch.

Comments: Hard to figure out, hard to find key holds. I'm pretty sure I figured out the easiest way to do it but it still felt more like .11b to me on the send.

Comments: CLASSIC! A victory whip should be mandatory on this thing. Belayer, give lots of slack at the end! :)

Comments: This would be a really good first 5.12a for a 5.11 climber breaking into the grade. The crux is in the first 10 feet followed by a sit down rest then it's FANTASTIC 5.10+ (MAYBE 5.11-) climbing to the chains. Stick clip the first bolt then try the bottom over and over, once you get through it to the rest, you are on your way to your first .12 send!

Comments: Awesome route, bad day. Core shot my rope and lost a .5 bd camalot. Forgot my gear removal tool and couldn't pry it out after it walked deep into the crack. If anyone pulls it out I'd be stoked to have it back... but I'm guessing whoever grabs it will take the booty and run. ericgodfrey AT gmail DOT com if anyone finds it.

Comments: Done this a couple times now. Last two times I've rappelled the final drop in one rap with a 70M. It barely reaches the base with rope stretch. Even if you are a little shy of the bottom though, the final section can be easily downclimbed (tie a knot in the end still, just in case).

Comments: I made a .docx file with the photos and a brief route description. I made it to be able to cut each pic, leave a tab on the left, staple them together and stuff them in your ruckman guide. Click download after clicking the link here and print them from Word, Google screws up the formatting on the last page if you print from their viewer. Bingo Baby Wall.docx

Comments: Pretty consistant climbing. Crimpers in between underclings and jugs. Those last couple moves to the chains are rough when you're pumped if you are going for the redpoint

Comments: These are all listed on RC.com so I figured I'd add them since I've now climbed all four routes. Help me out on the ratings, I'm told holds have fallen off and they are harder than they used to be. I called Sam Adams .11a because I thought it was a bit harder than o'douls and that one is listed here as .10c/d. We were told Corona is now .11d/.12a due to a key hold falling off, but I'm calling it .11c. If you've climbed these give your input.

Comments: Wow, this thing was still really dirty. Bring stuff to help clean. We knocked off a lot but I'm sure it will still be dirty for the next party. I guess it was just added to MP a couple weeks ago so we may have been some of the first people on it.

Comments: Maybe I didn't "stem up the corner properly," because I thought this felt a little harder than 5.7 as well. Very fun for the grade.

Comments: best done with a stick clip if 5.11 is your limit, the crux is between the ground and the second bolt. After the thrid bolt you just pull huge jugs. Great climb, but kinda short. If it were longer I'd give it 3 stars.

Comments: If you are into sport routes and gyms this place is amazing! It's basically an outdoor gym a with cool creek to cool off in and lots of shade. I went yesterday (5/19/09) and it was $8 for non-SUCC members, not $10.

Comments: ya, it's tough to figure out what's on and what's off. If you stay on the arete, it feels at least .10d, if not harder. If you go off the arete, it feels easier.

Comments: Can be easily toproped if you don't have trad gear. As usual the crux is down low, fun crux, easy after that.

Comments: Super fun multipitch, (this was my first multipitch and is a good one to start out on) great belay ledges, the step-over on the second pitch makes the route twice as cool. I'll repeat this one for sure.
