Comments: Just did this yesterday with Owen Murphy. Such a crazy adventure. We linked pink tornado left into Gwondonna. Accidentally got off route at the end of the first pitch of pink tornado and had to lead a 5.9 death pitch to get back on route. We led pitches 3 thru 5 of gwondonna in the dark to get to the bivi spot. Spent a cold night bivied at the beginning of the traverse pitch, laying on the ropes because of all the thistles poking us. The second pitch of Gwon is not as scary as the guidebook sugg... more >>

Comments: I've climbed at Safe Harbor and Hot Karl Sunday is definitely harder than any 5.9 I've climbed there. Btw, I had a great laugh when I saw Safe Harbor pop up in the Moab section.

Comments: I gave this a go yesterday. I made it out of the pod before having to hang. Great offwidth, and the pin seems good. There were cobwebs along parts of the climb.

Comments: The top of this seemed very difficult. Maybe I just missed the holds, but I did Mel's Diner next to this and thought it was easier.

Comments: Haha, when I climbed I saw the bolt, but for some reason I thought I had to keep traversing further. So I did a slab further to the left without a bolt. Freaked me out

Comments: I lead this climb, you can get a small piece out right near the beginning and then traverse left to the line and get a nut in after a bit of climbing and then more gear in the second higher break. You wouldn't want to fall in the middle though before getting that second piece. Really fun if you're comfortable at the grade.

Comments: Great crack, lots of hand and fist jams deep in the crack. The tree is good to belay and rappel off of. Bring 3s, 4s, and a 5.

Comments: Super fun route, my favorite route in a 3 week trip including stays at J Tree, Yosemite, and Red Rocks. I did do a funky finish to the climb, I saw the bolt on the last pitch, but wasnt sure if that was the way to go(and I dont really like slab). So I thought if I kept going left along the traversing flake I might find something, but then it dead-ended and I ended up doing slab anyway, only my way it was 5.9ish and no bolt. Definitely an eye-catching finish to a great day.

Comments: The start feels like hard 8 or 9 slab, then the crack is 7ish. good to practice your slab edging
