I was climbing at the Dry Wall today (12/8/14). This trap was discovered at the base of the cliff when my friendís dog got her leg caught in the trap. It was elaborately set up with a feathery bate set up on a fishing line above the trap that was buried under some loose soil. The trap was attached to a deeply dug chain anchor. The dog was injured and a lot of pain, but seems like sheíll be ok.
The intent of this trap is very puzzling. It was obviously set up by someone who kn... more >>

Comments: I girth hitched the chickenhead with a 4ft dyneema sling. Then fell on it.. held fine.

I think the short man beta is to go right of the chickenhead.

Comments: I have a few cameras, but generally to just take climbing I use a GoPro 3 black edition. Its small, lightweight, straps to my harness, durable, and takes great shots.

Comments: Amazing route!! Bold, sustained, simply brilliant! Unlike anything Iíve climbed at the city. As far as the gradeÖ Iíll just say that itís by far the hardest ď11bĒ Ive climbed at the city. Enjoy!

Comments: As with any posts on this site, please take mine with a grain of salt. Iím fairly comfortable with swell style climbing, runouts, and really comfortable on 5.10. With that in mind, I thought this climb was great, and totally worth doing all 4 pitches. Sorry if Iím giving away too much here, but Iím just trying to promote doing the whole climb.

Pitch 1 Super fun. If you want to be very comfortable, bring three #1ís, and you could even use a #4 for the top. ( gear beta is in BD )

Comments: Gave the green C3 a mediocre removal attempt with no such luck. Its stuck real nice. It would take some advanced shenanigans to get out. Good luck.

Comments: I usually fall more on the approaches than the rock. Whether itís some loose talus or greasing out of my flip flops on some slabby 4th class, usually resulting in spilling my approach beer. Man, climbing outside is tough. Better just stick to Momentum from now on.

Comments: Good route, def worth doing. Maybe I was doing it all wrong, but I didnt have to dyno at all ( I'm 5'9" ) and there is a huge jug 6" below the chains.

Comments: I figured as much. I was just thrown off by the "FA: You." Regardless, an amazing route. Thanks for putting it up.

Comments: An amazing finish to one of my favorite desert climbs. Varied, challenging, and fun. One of the best out there. I noticed that there is no recorded FA on this page, has this not gone free yet? If not, I just happened to climb it free in one go from the ground to the 2nd anchors clean on 5/18/14. I'd be surprised, but honored to be the first to do so.

Comments: I approach isnt that bad if you know where to go.. if not, it can get ugly. For the route.. it redefined the terms dirty, chossy, and death blocks. A memorable outing at best.

Comments: Climbed this route in May 2011. I lived in NH for many years, and thought it was fitting to climb this. A good desert adventure. I lead the OW pitch with ease by pulling on a #6 in spots. My partner tried to free it on TR, and being not the best OW / chimney climber nearly puked from exhaustion. Amazing summit view.

Comments: Ive only gotten on a handful of the routes in the area. Most of which were fun and memorable. I think I stick to my opinion, which is just that, about the rating. On pitch 2, I got 1 good cam right off the belay, then 1 bad cam in the crack 15ftish below the first bolt. The climbing in between the cams isnt too hard, but far and the rock is questionable in sections. A blown hold would result in extreme unpleasantness. In general climbing terms, I think this would support a pg13. I think a 9- vs... more >>

Comments: To avoid the OW start, do the Utahpia start ( which is great climbing ) and traverse left at the ledge after the first 3 bolts. This variation is definitely one of the best routes on the wall.

Comments: I'm gonna go against the grain here and say "meh." It looks like a lot more fun than it is. Overall mediocre at best, especially compared to its neighbors Rollercoaster and Colossus, which are way better.

Comments: Long slings for the anchors will greatly reduce the drag for the belayer for the 2nd, or if setting up a TR, which is really easy. about 55 inches from the chains to the edge.

Comments: You can link the 1st 2 pitches with a 70m. Super fun route
