Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Parley's Canyon : Pharaoh's Glen : Bill's Farewell Epic (5.9+)

Comments: In the last few moves, when I climbed this route there was a pocket filled with tiny cactus thorns, dozens of which needed to be removed from my hand afterwards.


Location: UT : San Rafael Swell : San Rafael Swell - North : Head of Sinbad North : Annakenna Tower (5.8 C0)

Comments: I climbed this tower on 3/17/07. Good route, but a bit of loose rock to contend with still. The climbing is not bad to do french free instead of aiding at about 5.8 C0.

Comments: I also didn't think the #4 camalot was necessary, or even useful. I think I placed it in an anchor at one point, but never needed it during the wide pitch.

Comments: This flake is bomber, I didn't find it freaky at all. If you want to see the definition of thin scary flake, check out Arm and Hammer in Bells Canyon!

Really great route!


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Little Cottonwood Canyon : Gate Buttress : Five Fingers Area : Hornet's Rest (5.8+)

Comments: Hornet's Rest is the crack system above all the other dihedral routes in the beta photo. It climbs up the right facing dihedral seen in the picture, then traverses the roof (shaded) rightward.


Location: SD : Mount Rushmore National Mem... : South Seas : Bull Rock

Comments: There are 3 new routes on this rock, all near each other facing the old road through South Seas. Does anybody know the route names or ratings for these climbs? I found them all to be really good additions to South Seas. The bolt placements were smart and the climbing enjoyable.


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Little Cottonwood Canyon : Crescent Crack Buttress : A Kat That Grumps (5.7)

Comments: This route is easy to find. It is a continuous (although weird) crack system. It is the first protectable chunk of rock right of Parapalegic Ward. I just hit it by climbing Mexican and then scrambling up the low angle stuff above.

Comments: A red alien is bomber in the small left facing corner after bolt 1. Agreed, bolt 2 is a joke.

Comments: Cool photo Greg! That's an interesting perspective.


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Big Cottonwood Canyon : Challenge Buttress : North and West Faces : Hollow Man (5.9)

Comments: Not a 5.9 move on this route. Pretty sustained at 5.8, however, which warrants giving the overall grade of around 5.9. Lots of fun moves with jugs the whole way.


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Big Cottonwood Canyon : S-Curves : S-Curve - Lower : Melting Point (5.10b)
By: Peter Gram When: Aug 7, 2004

view comment >>
Comments: This route has some really cool moves, but is not sustained at all. A tricky opening sequence leads to a long section of easy rock. The upper wall (bolts 5 through 7) is really good. Steep jug haul that makes this route.

Make sure to have a 60m rope for the rap. Otherwise, use the intermediate rap station just to the right for 2 rappels.


Location: SD : Mount Rushmore National Mem... : South Seas : Cavity : Stormy Night (5.7)

Comments: The route to the right of Stormy Night is Tranquil Evening (5.10a).


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Little Cottonwood Canyon : Gate Buttress : Schoolroom Area : The Hook (5.8 R)
By: Peter Gram When: Jun 22, 2004

view comment >>
Comments: Just like the Hook Variation, the other 2 possible approaches to this climb are Schoolroom or Schoolroom Direct.


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Big Cottonwood Canyon : Mule Hollow Wall
By: Peter Gram When: Jun 13, 2004

view comment >>
Comments: The last part of the approach is a little tedious. I had a bit of trouble finding the side trail up to the wall, but eventually figured it out. Along the way, there are 2 cairns along the left side of the trail. Take the somewhat obscure spur at the second cairn. This is right before a stream crossing. Follow the trail up through talus and maybe some bushwhacking to get to the wall.

Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Little Cottonwood Canyon : Gate Buttress : Schoolroom Area : Hatchet Crack (5.7)
By: Peter Gram When: May 25, 2004

Comments: The anchor now has a bomber bolt, plus the webbing around the horn. It would be possible to rap from here, but it might take 2 ropes? From the anchor, a medium length pitch tops out Schoolroom using either Movie Variation or Schoolroom P5.


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Big Cottonwood Canyon : Storm Mountain Picnic Area : Storm Mountain Island : Goodro's Wall (5.10c)
By: Peter Gram When: May 24, 2004

Comments: There is one piton at the base of the roof, and another a short ways above on the face slightly to the right of the main crack. Neither one is probably worth clipping - bomber gear right near both.


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Little Cottonwood Canyon : Pentapitch Area

Comments: No pitons on Pentapitch currently in May 2004.


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Little Cottonwood Canyon : Coffin Buttress
By: Peter Gram When: May 14, 2004

view comment >>
Comments: Just to clarify on the Coffin Buttress approach. Start as for Crescent Crack from the highway. A fork is encountered a ways up which has the right branch go into a water drainage (left goes through overgrown trees to Crescent Crack). This drainage is the trail. Follow this, eventually leading to scrambling across slabs to the base of the Coffin.


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Mount Olympus : The West Slabs : The West Slabs (5.5)
By: Peter Gram When: May 9, 2004

view comment >>
Comments: I decided to give this 3 stars due to the overall experience of climbing this route. Cruising up the couloir is fun at the beginning of the day, and pitches 2, 3, and 4 are really good. The rest of the climbing is of lower quality, but the rock is generally really solid and the views of SLC are great.

Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Little Cottonwood Canyon : Pentapitch Area : Pentapitch (5.8)

Comments: There is a bolt on the last pitch. It looks brand new, so it has probably been replaced since the comment by Jonathan. Pitch 5 climbs a thin finger crack, then works slightly right up a flake. On top of this flake is where the bolt is. The climb finishes up with a slight angling to the left.


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Big Cottonwood Canyon : The Dead Snag : East Dihedrals (5.6)
By: Peter Gram When: May 3, 2004

view comment >>
Comments: The route can be seen, pretty much centered, in this photograph. It climbs the obvious right facing dihedral which is a little shaded.

This climb has some 3 star quality climbing on it, but also has some easy wandering up loose rock which deteriorates from the route quality.


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Little Cottonwood Canyon : Gate Buttress : Beckey's Wall Area : Beckey's Wall (5.7)
By: Peter Gram When: May 2, 2004

view comment >>
Comments: Agreed. I rapped after pitch 2 as well. Otherwise, it would be a bit of a hoof to get back to the gear at the base of the climb. Also, route quality looks like it diminishes.


Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Little Cottonwood Canyon : Gate Buttress : Schoolroom Area : The Scourge (5.9 R)
By: Peter Gram When: May 2, 2004

view comment >>
Comments: The Scourge is a fun TR option after doing some route to get up the Schoolroom. This is a popular rap station, so best to TR this climb during an off-time. Also, make sure to TR through your gear, the chains are already well worn. As a lead, this warrants a vs. I didn't see any pro options until the very top, where the climbing is easier.
