Comments: We climbed this yesterday, Greg Cameron, Laurent (surname unknown) and myself.
Lots if bad rock and scary climbing as described previously. The crux pith however is stellar! 5 star! Our consensus was 5.10c, it's that pesky squeeze to offwidth size where you're always on the verge of slipping,a grunt,but not very hard technically. The cleanest pitch on the route, to boot!

The guidebook (desert rock III)says it's 420' long so we did it on 420, cough!

Comments: Why is it called Bioturbation wall? Bioturbation happens underwater. Wingate is an aeolian (formed on land) sandstone. Is there a funny story?

Comments: "Fifty degrees"?
Do you mean 130 degrees? Or is it less, than vertical?

Weren't you a math major?

Comments: Why so defensive, Justin? I imagine a provincial area scholar such as yourself already knew this and has the same 1/2 guidebook I do. Do you need an ISBN#?

And, you did just make a pretty mean spirited, sweeping, accusation and personnal attack, on myself, do you have anything to back that up? Anything to tell my Wyoming lawyer?

He assigns the Ved belay cards and hands out red tape right there by the Nautilus commode.

Comments: Pretty sure Halfpenny referred to it as Limbo Rock, something over there was, anyway. But that was before your time, Justin, so I can see how you might have missed it.

Comments: I onsight free soloed this back in '77 or so, when I was a skinny kid from Laramie, total tunneler. Not barefoot but in EBs. Now, 15 lbs heavier and 34 yrs, more mature, I suspect it would the fringes for me!

Comments: Yeah Greg, straightforward (extremely difficult) armbars is the only chance for many of us. No way my fists, stacked, span that void of space.

Comments: John Wilke led on the first ascent. Myself, John Rutt, and Joe Cupps followed. about a million years ago, Maybe '80? '79? I bet it was '79. I think it was the summer before John Rutt died in the Buggs....

We rated it .11b in those EB days. For years later, there was talk of rating it .11a, because 'we couldn't climb that hard.'

Comments: One of the best.
A must do, every trip.
I have small hands and a plus 4 ape index, the trick is lock off and reach. There are holds for any size hand (though the truly diminutive may be hurting).

Every so often I reach up the first move and it doesn't feel 'right'. Those are the times I walk away.

You really don't want to fall on this.

Comments: Pamela, of course rocks!

Anonymous C, check the public record before embarrassing yourself with Spew. Luebben was in diapers climbing wise at the time of the first ascent. Bob has never climbed it, at least as of 8/09 when I last saw him.
It was 8 years before the the 2nd, but yes he did flash. We all have our strengths, he thought Squat, and Trench Warfare were hard. RIP, Craig.

Bellyful of Bad Berries is the hardest of that bunch.
