Comments: Your guess is correct. Kip is at the top of the 3rd pitch, Calvin is just past the top of the 2nd pitch (Kip linked 2 and 3), and I'm biding my time at the top of the 1st pitch.

Comments: If you want to make a half-day of it, continue from the top of Brain Full of Spiders to Trilogy Buttress. The top of Bad Bananas is at roughly the same level as the start of the Trilogy routes.

Comments: I've only ever heard this area referred to (and that rarely) as "those other routes in Hobble Creek." I gave it the name Walt's Wonderland because my buddy ran from boulder to boulder exclaiming gleefully as we slogged our way up the crag one day.

If anyone knows a more proper name, I'd love to hear it.

Comments: I think "FA" might be overstating the significance a bit, but at least I'm color-coordinated with the rock.

The face is a little taller than it appears in this picture; Lee is 6'6" tall, so he throws off the perspective a bit.

Comments: "...and continued up the big, right-arching crack..."

You're pretty brave. There's not a lot holding that block up.

Comments: Not really worth climbing, but I had to name and report it so that Darren falls one further behind in his quest to climb all named lines in Rock Canyon. Hi Darren :-)

I decided that the line really isn't worthy of its own set of chains, but if anyone feels differently (after climbing it), I could probably be persuaded to put some in.

03Jul09: Added chains.

Comments: We followed the directions in Rock Climbs of Southwest Utah & The Arizona Strip, Second Edition (turn right onto a dirt road .5 miles past the "public lands" sign, stay left at each fork) and managed to get to within about 1/8 mile of the approach trailhead in the low-clearance family minivan. The road wasn't horrible, and only elicited occasional cries of, "What do you think you're doing to my car?!", usually heard immediately following ominous scraping noises.

Contrary to the guidebook, the trail starts at the road's end and was marke... more >>

Comments: C'mon, where's your Google-Fu? I was looking for a name related to tides and thought all the y's made for an interesting-looking word; the buzzing, Dr. Seuss-like pronunciation is a bonus.

Comments: I agree. I thought it was harder than 5.7, but 5.7 is what Collin said it was and who am I to argue?

Why No Hangers?

How I Misspent My Saturday



Two of the routes on Mass Murder Wall that appear in the Ruckman Guide are missing all of their hangers, although the wedge bolts are all there. Although I canít tell you why they originally disappeared, I can tell you why they werenít replaced.

I had bought hangers, washers, and nuts with the intention of replacing the missing hardware on the routes. In the early afternoon I dragged myself up the ... more >>

Comments: So I've got to confess: I've gotten on this twice and still haven't managed it without falling (and I flashed the .11b to the left—go figure).

Granted, there are extenuating circumstances (exhaustion, injury), but I find this to be a tricky route.
