Comments: Gopher snakes are GREAT snakes that eat all sorts of things we humans despise!
They often coil and shake their tail to rattle near by vegetation in an evolutionary effort to convince predators they are venomous. With the onslaught of we humans this is not working out so well. Still, a great snake!

Comments: Hay Stan,

The transition to the arete is tricky but once done then you wonder why you took so long. Here is a pic that shows the start to the move right. mountainproject.com/v/10726669...

Comments: Grammatical point, (Noun[edit]. tufa (countable and uncountable, plural tufas) but they named it so they can do whatever. And good for them and us! It is a title that has significance to those that put up the line...we must not judge.

Comments: Maybe...but the views and camping and lack of crowds all make the VOG one of the best crags ever!

Comments: So here is the definitive answer from Dr. Jessica Ball who is a volcanologist and has worked in the area: "I suspect it's a particularly symmetrical example of a hackle - a structure that forms where rocks break (or form joints): blogs.agu.org/mountainbeltway/... Some of these can look really ornamental.

I saw the comment about the gas, and I don't think this has anything to do with gas in the ash flow. Gas-related structures are usually things like elutriation pipe... more >>

Comments: Other than "The Colossus of Cannonville" and Dog-Gone Tower of the above featured formations, none have FAs (as of 1/16/15). The lighter colored towers are in the Cretaceous Perod and are much softer than the red colored towers which are in the Jurasic Period and the Entrada Formations. These are a bit harder and show real promise in terms of sandy and dangerous climbing. The exceptions in the area are the sedimentary pipes found in the Kodachrome Basin Park. They are very doable if it were n... more >>

Comments: I am conflicted about a guide. I want to make it easy for those who venture up but also want to be "green" and not print something that will need to be updated many times in the near future. The phone app from "Rakkup" may be a solution but it is still awkward to set up. With only 132+ routes in the Jungle, perhaps it should wait?

Comments: The walk out here is worth it! It gets shorter as you learn the best lines to take and you often will see sheep on this hike...oh...the climbing is fun too.

Comments: We all need to speak/vote our mind and get rid of this arcane and cruel practice! You can get better isolation from old soda bottles. Why be greedy and perpetuate needles suffering for the Chinese where most of the fur is now sent.

Comments: On the approach not too far up the canyon there is a two bolt anchor with webbing above a great looking hand crack on good rock climbers right. Any info on this?

Comments: As of 11/25/14 there are only three names on top of Togo Tower...and I don't believe it! From the edge you can see someone messed with the register. My bet is that Andy knows! So now there may be five names, two of which our mine.
