Trying to redpoint The Ugly 11c; steeper than it looks and the rock is scary in spots but good enough.

Comments: I have lead this route a few times, did not get the onsight. If you don't want my beta, stop here.

The moves to clip the third bolt, for me, are way to the right of the arete on a thin half-moon edge nearly level with the bolt. I clip here and pray not to fall.

Comments: Joe, most of the 3rd pitch is a huge detached flake. As I bolted the line, the top bolts sounded louder than the lower ones as I hammered them in. I don't think it's going anywhere, it is huge, thicker at the bottom and leans back slightly. Still spooky.

Comments: Must be a new rap bolt from top of the roof? Not mine. It is a Jeremy Smith route but he put in cold shuts way back. Maybe a new bolt and chains are needed?

Comments: Sounds like a great forum to share the positive aspects of an area like Queen Creek, Arizona! It is under the gun by a foreign mining company. The land was specifically set aside to save it from mining and it is now sought for that purpose and will be destroyed unless we change the mining technique. Thanks for the info AF!

Comments: This may be my route, LA Woman 10a, that begins a bit right of the roof climbs. It goes up face and angles left to a dihedral finish. Gear to #2 Camalot.

Comments: I have to agree that some of the routes, especially the earlier bolted routes, have runouts accepted by the original developers. Like me, we did a lot of ground up stuff first then evolved to create better sport routes via rappel. Newer routes with built in runouts for no apparent reason (like some in the Pond), bug me. I try to stay away and point out their shortcomings to good people.

Some of the guys have gone back and changed the routes to bring them in closer to today's reality. Newer ... more >>

Comments: Loved that part. It was a toss up for the crux there or the very bottom of the photo where the rope is drawn right.
