Location: UT : Maple Canyon : Maple Canyon Road : Schoolroom Area : Marble Slate (5.7)

Comments: 2 bolts and then chains. A bit spicy for a 5.7. Bring some long draws/runners for the chains, they're not very close together.

Comments: The first pitch is awkward, loose and doesn't take pro well. The second pitch improves a bit and the third pitch gets to the good stuff. Final pitch felt like it had a move or two that was harder than 5.7. Bring a large selection of runners and a full set of doubles. No bolted belays or slings. Watch out for loose rock, there's some big pieces waiting to drop.

Comments: The listing is for 180 feet, but the chain anchors allow you to easily lower down with a 70m. Pretty sure a 60m would also lower off fine.

Comments: An underrated climb. Great movement in the corner with a section of squeeze chimney that is so few moves it's actually pleasant.

Comments: Great climbing. Typical BCC trad featuring just a couple of jams and a lot of face. I placed a 3# at the top. Bring a single rack in sizes larger than .75, doubles in smaller sizes. Anchors are in a fine spot and have no issues.

You can TR Dream Slate with a directional off those anchors pretty easily. Just have the last man climb up to the Involuntary Release anchors and clean from there.

Comments: Really funky climbing on this one, even more so than Anuresis. I'd recommend TRing both before trying for the lead. The climbing is 5.9+ but the stances are awkward.

Comments: It's a 5.8 if you're here to climb 5.12s.

Comments: Has chain anchors at the top of the first pitch. No anchors at the top of the second. Large tree can be slung though. Can easily be walked off, but bring your shoes.

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.
