Location: UT : Moab Area : River Road : River Road Dihedrals : Unknown 5.9 (5.9 PG13)

Comments: There is a piece in suspect rock here and there, but overall it takes decent pro. I sewed this up (due to the sandy rock) and placed singles from .5 C4 to a #5 C4. There's even a spot you can place a #6 if you wanted to.

Also, if you fall you're in a tight chimney so odds are you're gonna fall/slide down the chimney than horizontally out, except the squeeze at the top. In a fall you probably won't put too much force on the pro.

Comments: I placed 10 pieces of pro on this climb- all new style BD C4's. I used 2 #1's, 2 #2's, 2 #3's, 2 (yep, you guessed it) #4's, 1 #5 (though I would've placed a second one if I had it) and 1 #6. You could get by without the #6, but since I almost never get to use mine I took advantage of the climb to bring it outside. The moves were just insecure enough to make me think, but it's the 140' length of offwidth and wide hand moves that make me give it the + rat... more >>

Comments: After Flakes of Wrath my next favorite route at Wall Street; a unique climb with fun moves. I feel the bottom half is technically easy (yup, think foot bridging) but rather physical. The upper half is much less physical but seems to become more tenuous the higher you climb.

Comments: Fun route and a good lieback. Takes good gear the whole way. However, I disagree that this is one of the better routes at Wall Street. It's good but not thaaat good.

Comments: Damn. Glad I'm not doing stand-up comedy in front of this crowd :) I think Sand Felipe is an outstanding climb. In other climbing areas this would one of the best, if not the best, climbs at the crag. Whereas, here it is maybe middle of the pack.

And for the bolting: I don't mind the closely spaced bolts so much but if the reasoning is to make a super safe climb then why did whoever retrobolt not put in another bolt to protect the moves getting to the bolt ladder? Like other people here said, ... more >>

Comments: Climbed this route today and found the initial start and the offwidth sandy and the holds crumbly. However, the main corner system seemed solid to me. But as Todd says, don't take this climb for granite! :D

For what it's worth, I sewed this climb up and I don't have a desert rack. In C4's I used a .4, .5, an overcammed .75, 1, 2, and a tricky to place #3 right before the offwidth. Also, in Metolius Power Cams I used a 7, and an overcammed 8.

A beautiful route, in a beautiful area, with a... more >>

Comments: For mere mortals like myself, if you climb through the first five bolts and stop at the midway anchor to Wild Will's Arete the route goes at 10a and seemed 2 1/2 to 3 stars to me.

Comments: Sweet quality rock! I felt clipping the 2nd bolt was more heads up than the 3rd but they're probably both heads up. Haha!

I climbed this a couple years ago with a skier from South Lake. He pulled straight out on that poor flake until my wife and myself started yelling at him "Pull straight down! Not out!" He just looked at us, smiled, and asked "You got me?"

Comments: Hey DJ, did you use the arÍte for the upper face? I'd say if not it's definitely 10d, but if you climb with your left hand on the arÍte it brings the grade down to 10c. See ya out there!

Comments: Should probably be upgraded to 5.9+ since the holds have apparently rounded out since the first ascent. Sigh . . . sandstone.

Comments: Falcon guide calls this route Light Headed. The North Tahoe Guidebook has several errors in it. Though the Falcon guide also has several errors, as well. Oh my, what route is this? Why can't they just make a god damn fvcking guidebook of Donner Summit without any errors ;)

Comments: Nice! I did that crack in 2010 and it felt 10b to me, mainly for the move at the end of the crack to the ledge. Nice solo.

Comments: Climbed the 2nd pitch April, 2010- the trad placements are on that 2nd pitch, which I'd rate 5.8R with no stars. Unless you're a mountaineer there's no reason anyone should climb that pitch. I thought the first pitch was fun- not stellar but fun and worth the time.
