Comments: Excessive bail gear on that route is nothing new. One of my climbing partners used to solo the standard route on Monday mornings to collect all the booty left by weekend warriors who got in over their heads. He pieced together quite the rack doing this!

Comments: My 2 cents as someone who has been climbing in Sinks since I was in high school- this seems totally unnecessary. Like Vance said, the canyon is doing just fine on its own.

Comments: Chris- lots of good climbing days in May, but also lots of good storms that stick around for a couple days or more at a time. Also, the air temperature can be quite cold still, and remember that the majority of cliffs at Tensleep dip into the shade ~1PM. Depending on the length of your trip, you will probably get some climbable days in there. But if I were you, I'd strongly consider heading to Lander, where Sinks Canyon provides sunny sport climbing on dolomite similar to Tensleep. Plus you can ... more >>

Comments: Thanks for the info Mees. I like things to be accurate when I add them too, which is why I originally emailed Mike Snyder about the FA info since the guidebook lacks it. I do think it matters & thanks for contributing the correct info.

I very much appreciate the contributions of all the of the crew who established these routes and thank them for their efforts! I had a great time climbing in the canyon once things cooled off this past fall. It fills a nice niche for cold-weather sport climbing... more >>

Comments: Are you sure about that? I asked Mike Snyder, who told me Rick Aune did the FA, originally on gear nonetheless, and retroed it after other sport routes went in on the wall.

Comments: Wow 45/46 rate this thing 4 stars... gotta be one of the highest quality ratings on Mountain Project! So much fun.

Comments: The "tombstone" has been flexible for a long time. That would be a horrifying hold to have rip, especially since you really have to yard on the thing.... and then stand on it too!

Comments: re: Bull in a China Closet- I tried it once a couple years ago and didn't like it near as much as the others on the wall. Thought the bolting was a little off setting up some really odd clips. Never got back on it.

Others seem to like it though!

Comments: Scott, I'm not serious- my comment was tongue in cheek, more poking fun at Montana ethics than at you.

Comments: Sorry, just reread my post and it sounded like I was calling you out! Didn't mean for that, just wanted to make a note in the big overview area about the Meadows/Bowling Alley raps being doable w/ a single 70 since it's the most common descent route for people summiting the Tower.

But I second your comment about not relying on Zach's beta for pitch/rap lengths. Awesome historical photos, decent beta photos, but man, as a guidebook... that thing just falls somewhat short.

Comments: Just thought I'd add this here since it's the most general spot for Devils Tower beta. Unlike what Brian says above, the Meadows/Bowling Alley rap route can be done with a single 70, off of bomber, obvious two or three bolt anchors. Zach's guidebook topos don't show all the available stations.

Comments: Benjamin- it's an unprotected face that becomes slabbier and slabbier... obviously :).

Toby- Rs and Xs become hard to distinguish in Tuolumne. I find it really surprising that a self-admitted climber not "well-versed in the way of climbing on nubs" would attempt this route! Good on you for pulling it off.
There are plenty of better protected Meadows routes to learn these skills on. Head to Low Profile Dome and check out Golfer's Route and Darth Vader's Revenge. Also check out the climbs on the... more >>

Comments: Totally weaksauce suggestion. Sounds like you need to work on your all around climbing and protection skills. I have climbed that route probably more than any other in the Meadows and never had unmanageable drag finishing the Gram. There's good gear (small stopper if I remember right) to be had before pulling the miniroof at the end of the traverse if you actually look for it. And don't forget to put a long sling on it, genius!

Comments: I like Mike's route names. They've given me a chuckle more than once.

Plus, naming probably gets difficult when you've put up as many routes as Mike has! Thanks for all the $$$/hard work/quality climbs Mike!
