Comments: In this case "unfinished" means that the lines are bolted but not yet fully cleaned. Might be dangerous to climb.

(It's named Narcolepsy in their AF guide.)

Comments: The towers on the north side are all in the Lone Peak Wilderness area, so it's unlikely that there are any routes, and even more unlikely that there ever will be.

Comments: The green line in the photo is the standard path (and yes, some moron chopped the bolts and the attached fixed line along that path a few years ago).

It's possible to bushwhack up the north (left side) but it's probably equally difficult and less pleasant.

Comments: The line of bolts farthest right is an unfinished line bolted by Jim Knight that is "not safe" until completed.

Comments: (Cue evil chuckle from Darren...)

It really is right around .10a, but the key hold isn't immediately obvious from below and the crux is fairly sequential for a .10a.

(I didn't onsight it, which for me is unusual at this grade. I'm sure once it's all chalked up it'll be a bit more obvious.)

Comments: I climbed this sans flake (see here) and the difficulty was pretty much the same. There are a couple of pockets and sidepulls where the flake used to be.

Comments: Drive into the Little Mill campground. The rock is quite obvious on the right side of the road.

You can easily see the .10b from the campground road.

Comments: Noted.

.11c is about where I start whining and crying; I just didn't find it that hard.

I gave it a .10d because I found it easier than Send in the Frowns, which I thought was around .11a (although since you'd already told me that Tim rated that one at .11c that's what I put that one down as.)

Comments: The photo was taken in April.

Whether there will be too much snow or not is entirely hit-and-miss, depending on the weather. Utah in April can have 12 inches of snow drop one day followed by 70 degree temperatures the next day.

Comments: Beginners need to learn the mental game as well. If you're not comfortable with the high first bolt: stick clip.
