Comments: Went to scope these out today and it was raining the entire time so we never got to climb. The Rock is super solid and is almost identical to that of the Gunks in New York. It seems to be hard enough to climb when wet, as we were pulling on lots of holds (not any on existing routes) and there was no breakage. It has been raining in the St. George area for a solid week now so if they were able to be broken when wet they would have. Like I said, this rock type looks and feels identical to that ... more >>

Comments: We climbed this Yesterday, Saturday, Sept. 22, 2012. It was a great route. We combined the first 2 pitches with a 60M and 17-18 draws. The first pitch was steep and fun. The third pitch slab was my favorite and was very enjoyable. Great route! We rapped the route with a 60M rope in 3 rappels. Much better and easier than the walk off descent.

Comments: I think that the first pitch was great and easy. The second pitch was much, much harder, in my opinion than the first pitch. It felt sustained and harder than the 5.6 rating. It was a good route though. Definitely worth doing.

The descent was not good. Next time I would just rap the route to the left, Big Bad Wolf in 4 raps with a 60M rope.

Comments: Just did this route on Friday, Sept 21, 2012 and it was fun. There was a loose block about 2 moves after the roof traverse on pitch 4 that looks like a great hold, but would come down with little effort.

The best pitch was the 5th/chockstone pitch because there were a lot of different types of climbing, thin crimps on the slab, chimneying, jamming and slab climbing after the chockstone. The rest of the climb was ok but the 5th pitch made it worth it.

With a 60M rope we climbed the 5th pitch ... more >>

Comments: The road is usually open all year,however, there was a huge landslide this fall that took out about 1500' of the road and they are currently removing dirt and repairing/rebuilding the road.

Comments: There is so much potential for really easy, Mountaineering style trad routes here. I was amazed at the route possibilities that abound in this little area. Great little area to climb and a cool place to be when Red Rocks gets too crowded.

Comments: Fun, sustained route. It is more sustained than Shoshone of Tears but about the same grade.

Comments: I was there on March 17th, 2012 and there were anchor bolts at about 100 feet up on the large ledge for toproping. I added 2 quicklinks, cordalette and a rap ring for the decent. Fun route with a committing crux. The first pitch is about 5.8 with 12 bolts. The route is overall easier than 5.8, but the Crux is a committing 5.8 move and is super fun.

Comments: This route has 11 bolts if I remember correctly. I thought that it was enjoyable and the crux was pretty fun with cool holds.

Comments: Great Route! The first pitch was an amazing lead and was not to be missed. Great gear the entire way and like Markk said great lunch spots too.

Comments: This route is on the north side of the formation to the left of a hard sport route. Climb up the crack through a small thorn bush and finish on the Sport routes' anchors. Lower down the sport route and have your partner second the route so you can get your gear back.

Comments: Great route! The climb was great but the 3rd pitch is wonderful. Crux is the first 50 or so feet of the first pitch and it's well protected. Enjoy this one. it's a must do in the First creek slabs area, much better than Rising Moons to the right.

Comments: The bolts that were once missing seem to have found their way back. This area is a really fun area. The routes are short but fun. There are lots of opportunities for short, fun trad climbing all along the cliff band. Most of which use gear anchors or sling boulders for top anchors. It is super fun. Bring your trad gear and have a great day of cragging 30' trad lines.

Comments: My first splitter lead and it was pretty fun. We only did the first pitch. I agree that the crux is on the traverse below the hands section. I have larger hands and it was still good jamming. Enjoy!

Comments: Fun route. There are some really cool and different moves on this route that make it really fun. The jams are good and the mantels are fun. I recommend doing it.

Comments: I thought that the route was much harder than a 5.9+. I was shut down on lead and top roped it after my buddy aided up to the chains. Not a great way to start a day of crack climbing.

Comments: Fun route with the crux being a lieback section. I TRed it and thought it was harder than Deface Crack.

Comments: I just TRed this route and it was prefect hands the entire way. In the depths of the offwidth there are still good hand jams. The crux is the last 8 feet or so where the crack slims down to thin hands. It's a great route and it's easier than The Red Warrior and Pig Lloyd which are both rated 5.9+.
My partner Ryan lead it with nothing larger than a #3 Camalot.
Super fun route!

Comments: This is a really fun route. I recommend doing it. It protects well and has some exciting, but easy moves towards the top. Well worth the time.
We replaced the mass of webbing last week (Jan 25, 2010) so it should be good for a while.

Comments: Not really that great of a route. Protects well. Can build a gear anchor to belay partner up at rappel bush.

Comments: There were 3 anchor set ups with 2 bolts each for the routes mentioned. One of the bolts was wiggling in it's hole for the Hairy Virgin anchor. There are cracks that can be used to back it up with trad gear or you could sling a huge boulder for pro too with a cordalette.
