Comments: @Joshh: The road was in quite bad shape on 29 Oct 2011 (completely gone in a few locations where it was in the wash).

In my Corolla we made it about 1/8 mile or so before I'd had enough; a high-clearance vehicle would probably have made it another 1/8 to 1/4 mile or so without serious risk of damage/getting stuck.

Took us about 2 hours from the car to the base of the tower.

Comments: I think 100m would be plenty.

As I recall, when I belayed someone on Huecos several years ago, we lowered with a single 70m. I had to climb up to the first bolt (or maybe a little past it) once the rope came tight on me (the belayer), then downclimb.

Comments: Maybe you guys are right, but I sure don't remember it being that hard, and I wrote the description the day after I climbed it.

Comments: This is currently marked at the base with "9+" in chalk. I thought it was definitely "plus", but I may just be weak or otherwise unworthy.

Comments: When I was first told about this line I was told it is a 5.11a. I thought the first roof was the hardest part, so if that's true, it can't be any harder than the line with which it shares the start (Unknown 5.10c).

Be a bit wary of this line. At some point some of the upper roof is going to come off. It seems fairly solid now, but is hollow-sounding when you hit it with your hand. You don't want to be around if it decides to take flight.

Comments: "Left Slab... isn't presently on MP..."

Your photo is of Left Slab.

Edit: I renamed the route linked above from "Unknown 5.7" to "Left Slab", which should explain this otherwise now non-sensical comment.

Comments: If you were at a hanging belay you weren't on Dag Nasty Part Deux.

Likely you were on Old School, although I don't remember the rock being particularly bad on that one.

Comments: Yes, the rope is gone. Some holier-than-the-rest-of-us dimwit chopped the bolts.

Comments: According to an older topo I have from several years ago Medulla Oblongata is .12b/c and Cosmic Imperative is .11c.

Note that a few of the grades listed in the topo are a letter grade different than what the grades listed here on MountainProject are; I don't know exactly what the current feeling is on those two particular routes.

Comments: Corner Canyon is temporarily closed.

From the KSL report:

Due to recent flooding, the U.S. Forest Service has closed the Corner Canyon area, east of Draper, until further notice. That includes all trails and the Upper Corner Canyon Road. Rangers say heavy equipment crews are cleaning and fixing flood control structures and they need to temporarily close the area for safety reasons.
