Comments: Fantastic climbing interspersed with terrifying loose climbing. If you're up there alone give some of those rocks a shove.

Comments: Best 5.9 boulder problem in the Wasatch? Short but sweet moves on impeccable rock. Protects well, just make sure to have some small cams.

Comments: My rack for this route was an orange tcu, a #.5, a #3 and a #4. Felt like plenty but the #4 was nice to have.

Comments: A longer climb than I thought. Almost ran out of gear towards the top. Fun and pretty cruiser before and after the traverse. Well protected where it needs to be and has some LCC-style runouts where it's easier.

Comments: This route can gobble up some bigger gear though there is places for smaller pieces if you look. Fairly easy to traverse to the new chains just above Tax Evasion. Has a tiny bit of punky rock, but overall great quality.

Comments: Starts as a seam and opens wider in a hurry but the initial moves on the meat of the climb are stout. Difficulty varies based on finger size but since I've got fatter fingers this felt like a couple serious 5.9 moves. Those with slimmer fingers will probably feel great on the #.3 section.

Comments: One of the best climbs at the grade in BCC. Has chain anchors up top. They look fairly new. Standard rack. I definitely placed two #3s.

Comments: Just a couple of 5.8ish moves. Some of them are height dependent. Almost zero approach and a nice aspect for catching afternoon sun late in the day.

Comments: Just a couple 5.8 moves to keep you on your toes. Good quality climbing though throughout. Climb protects pretty well. Has a bit of choss here and there, but it's all solid in the right places. Third pitch seemed really runout above the short crux you crank through to get on the arete. Easy climbing, fortunately.

Rap bolts on the top of the third pitch were placed in a heinous location for belaying someone up. Makes for a nice pull while you're hanging off the cord down below though.

Comments: Takes gear well. The hardest part might just be placing gear off of the oddly angled holds. A fun, short route that's well worth doing if you're in the area. Not terribly difficult if you get creative with the holds.

Comments: Can be done safely with #s 1/5/4/2/2/2 Camalots. Might squeeze in a 3 somewhere if you wanted to. Very fun and strenuous for the length. Anchors are in a great location.

Comments: On the first pitch I started up the crack directly below the tree. Slightly awkward move but not terrible. For some reason I thought the flake to the right of the route was the correct way up. Liebacked that monster flake and had to run it out big time without any large gear. Felt more like a 5.8++ sequence. Not recommended.

Keep going past pitch four. The fifth pitch is fantastic and the fourth class is quick and painless. The views from the top of the buttress into the cirque over Power Failu... more >>

Comments: Actually a little more fun than Choir Boy. The runouts on easier terrain for the upper section keep things interesting.

Comments: A couple of the bolts on this route are starting to get fairly grungy. Fortunately most if not all of them can be backed up with pieces nearby. I would highly recommend bringing a selection of cams unless you like running it out 20-30 feet between aging bits of hardware. Some judicious use of alpine draws will help keep the rope drag manageable. Rap off Glenlivet anchors with a single 70m.

Comments: This route was a lot of fun. Kind of confusing and wandering with all the bolts up there now, but super fun.

Based on everyone's beta here I believe you will clip a total of four bolts on the route. Three in a very slightly rightward trending line and then the nice long runout left to the fourth bolt in the water streak. A tiny cam could be placed above that before the chains but it's easy ground and if you ran it out to that fourth bolt you should be comfy here. There is a possible fifth bolt ... more >>

Comments: A #4 is nice to have, but not required. Could be protected before and after easily. There's just a great stance where it's convenient to plug in a #4.

Make sure to bring a good amount of runners for this climb, especially if you do the original start. Also a 70m didn't quite lower me down from the chains. Some funkiness had to be worked out in the chimney. 70m does rap down quite comfortably though (route just wanders a bit).

Comments: Feels kind of soft compared to the rest of the stuff on the wall, but fits in nicely with climbs at Reservoir Ridge. Not particularly sustained, but worth doing once.

Comments: I left a sling and biner on the upper piton in the cave. That anchor is a disaster waiting to happen. This is a climb that really would benefit from a real anchor.

Comments: The funky friction move at the second bolt is a pretty honest 5.8+ move. The crack is crazy good. Placing that many #2s and #3s in a row is something usually reserved a 5.10 at Indian Creek.

Comments: Stiff route, quite a bit harder than most 5.10a climbs in LCC. Vaguely reminiscent of Disco Duck, but without any chickenheads for feet.

Watch for the extremely sharp rope-eating crack towards the tope. Core-shot my rope badly.

Comments: The first two pitons can be backed up with ballnuts quite well. Much better than trusting some old iron.

Blowing the moves to the first bolt out on the left would result in a pretty nasty fall back into the dihedral, but it's fairly secure. The right finish is in need of serious gardening. Step left to the bolt and do the route that way, it's the superior finish.

Comments: Yellow TCU fits the little pocket perfectly. Just make sure to extend it or you'll regret the rope drag.

Comments: Could probably get by without a #4. If you drag it up there you'll find a home for it though.

You can rap down with a single 70m. A 60m would not work. We rapped down the 4th pitch, then switched to the anchors on PBR Streetgang. Rapped straight down that route to the ground. Several of the raps are rope stretchers, it would be very easy to go off the end of your rope if you aren't careful.

This route is just fantastic the whole way up.

Comments: Pretty fun, but has a kind of alpine feel with how much loose rock there is in the cracks. Make sure your belayer has a helmet and doesn't stand right below you.

Comments: Had to bail after I busted a hold on P5 and sprained my ankle. Great route up to that point. We opted to lower directly off a bush on the top of P4 down to the one lonely bolt. Did a double rope rap off the bolt which put us on a ledge slightly south of the top of P2. There are bail slings in this area which let you get down with a single rope to some easy (without a sprained ankle) class 3 terrain which will put you in the gully.

#4 wasn't absolutely needed on P4, but definitely didn't h... more >>
