Comments: There is a new restaurant/cafe/grocery store/B&B at Tres Piedras called Chili Line Depot. On the way back to CO this morning, we stopped in for a quick breakfast burrito. We met one of the owners, Debbie, and she expressed a lot of excitement about serving the climbing community in the future. She was amazingly friendly and showed us around the bedrooms for rent, which also included a pool table/lounge area. The breakfast burritos were excellent (didn't try any other food). I think the bedroom m... more >>

Comments: There is now a very loose block between the first and second bolt. We marked it with an "X" in chalk, but it should probably be trundled. My only concern is that it may be acting as a support for the more prominent lieback flakes above, so we left it. Be very careful, as this was a useful hand and foot hold. The sequence is only a slight notch harder if you avoid this block, and doesn't affect the overall difficulty of the route.

Comments: I think this is a great route, with the only strike against it being the break in climbing at the prominent ledge. Really fun (and well protected) V0/V1 boulder problem to the ledge, and 10a-ish climbing at the top with a tricky finish.

Comments: Hey guys...I have one confirmation that cell service is available up here, but I wanted to check with some of the locals. I need to be available via cell, and I use Verizon. Any issues? Thanks and looking forward to checking it all out!

Comments: Andy, that looks reasonable to me, especially given the two entrance scenario. Again, I'm not at all familiar with the park, but any scheme that directs a new visitor from large scale sectors down to a smaller selection of boulders, down to individual problems is a good one.

Comments: Maybe this has been addressed elsewhere, but I think it would be a great service to the community if one of the locals here would do some organizing to the bouldering database. To someone who has never visited (me two days ago) trying to find a place to set up camp (and know what you're climbing) was rather difficult using Mountain Project alone. For instance, even the Font Boulders could use a few subdivisions. Just a thought.


Location: UT : Moab Area : River Road : River Road Dihedrals : ker-THUD! (5.9)

Comments: Maybe I didn't traverse right early enough, but the gear I placed between the last bolt and the dihedral proper was suspect at best. It might have worked as an aid placement, but I doubt the rock is solid enough to take a fall at that point. If that piece failed, you're hitting the ground. The upper crack was fun, but I wasn't thrilled on the lichen-covered slab and suspect gear before the dihedral. Not a bad route, but that's my 2 cents for a budding 5.9 trad leader.

Comments: There is a loose, toaster-sized block at the top of the twin cracks section, on the right side. A small crack has formed, and I felt it flex when I grabbed it. I marked an "x" with chalk, but be careful. That's not one you want to send down, and it's an inviting jug.

Comments: Does anyone know about potential crack climbing on the Entrada Sandstone around Ghost Ranch and Abiquiu Dam? It seems there's amazing potential, but I can't find any info about first ascents or beta. Surely people have climbed here!
