Comments: The Pitch 3 bulge felt like a sandbag at 5.9, but I've also got huge hands which made the #1 sized flaring jams feel very insecure. The crux protects great with a #.75 so it's perfectly safe, just kind of awkward. Run the first two pitches together for the best experience.

Comments: No need to lieback or pull on crimps. This baby is a (mildly) sandy fist crack with some great feet.

Comments: I assumed it wasn't the way the FAs intended the route to be climbed. Pretty fun variation though.

Comments: Despite the piles of rat shit at the start this route climbed surprisingly well. Some fun leaning crack moves led me to the first bolt. Being tall I could clip it from a layback stance in the crack. From there it is possible to climb the slab up to the edge like a giant chimney, keeping one arm on the ceiling. Eventually the chimney runs out and you have to make a transition onto the slab for the final two bolts. Still, it's an awesome way to climb part of the route.

Comments: Definitely a PG13 route. A fall at the start (the crux) could be rough. Wished I had some offset cams for the start. Once the crux is over the route is 5.7/5.8 for the remainder. Very fun and worthwhile though.

Comments: I climbed this route the way that I think was intended. Pretty fun with a cool move to reach the chains from the chimney. A bit like Narcosis further up the canyon. The chains are visible pretty easily if you step 20 or 30 feet back from the belay area and spy them at the top.

The final moves to the chains feel wildly overhanging and are extremely committing for a trad route of the grade. Fortunately there's great gear and the moves honestly clock in at a hard 5.8 or maybe 5.9. Just get your fe... more >>

Comments: This felt a step easier than Satan's Corner. A reasonable 5.8 for LCC and an absolute blast to climb. Reminiscent of Perhaps with some trickier footwork thrown in. Bring plenty of alpine draws!

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. Make sure you bring some extra long runners to figure out the chains at the top.

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: 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.
