Comments: BEWARE THIS IS NOT A G RATED CLIMB! Sure, you can "sew it up" before pulling the crux moves, BUT even though the placements may look good, they're not necessarily going to hold a fall. My partner took an 18 foot groundfall when all 3 pieces he placed up there blew from a minor slip at the crux. A somewhat blindly placed nut in the crack at the top of the small roof and a small, purple Metolius cam that looked like a textbook placement blew immediately from the 1-2 foot fall (these pieces were at... more >>

Comments: Chimney ROCK. At least that's its official name, not Chimney Peak. Why does this bother me? :)

Edit: From a great Trail & Timberline article (Fall 2012), "It is officially named Chimney Rock but has been known locally as Chimney Peak."

Comments: We climbed this in poor condition because we really wanted to make the summit of Woodrow Wilson. The bottom of the couloir was melted out and required a very loose Class 4+ pitch. Snow above was rotten so we stayed roped up and simulclimbed, placing occasional pro in the couloir walls.

A series of old rappel anchors set up for double rope rappels got us back down. Lightning struck the summit during our descent. We were perhaps 200 feet down the couloir at the time and some of us got shocked thr... more >>

Comments: To find the start of the cairned route (and path of least resistance) look for a dihedral that is obvious from the col and very close to it. Its got a nice crack going up the left side. We were comfortable scrambling up and down the route sans rope but having one along still seemed like a good idea.

Comments: I thought this was the line called Spooked? When I climbed it, I was wondering if the poop had something to do with the name. Could the route currently labeled as Spooked be wrong? Or am I wrong?

Comments: I usually have no problem with a little choss, but in its current state, this climb is dangerous and not worth doing. A hold near the top busted while my partner was on it and sent a bunch of rock down on the belay. I climbed it afterwards and noted there were several more large, loose chunks of rock waiting to go.

Comments: THANK YOU, thank you, thank you to those who bolted this route! Absolutely wonderful. Fun climbing in a spectacular setting. I'm a timid leader (though very familar with Zion slickrock) and both times I've led this 4 quickdraws and a personal anchor were all I needed. Leave the trad gear at home.

Comments: As a fledgling 7 trad and 8 sport leader, I got freaked below the 1st bolt. The #7 stopper placement looked a bit iffy. Backed off and spotted a nice little crack from the ground. Double zero C3 saved the day, I hung on that puppy to test it... beautiful! Absolute comfort cruise from there.

Comments: As a timid newbie leader I was totally comfortable and I'm glad I didn't see the R here beforehand or I probably wouldn't have tried it. On P2 a few of the huge chicken heads make great pro (double length slings) and I also found some relatively good nut & hex placements.

Comments: Protects well, good beginner lead. Bomber #12 and #13 nut placements. Fun climb.

Comments: Entire route seems solid now, looks like everything that could break off did already. Fun, pumpy climb.

Comments: To toprope the route you can anchor to a tree above the lip but its not that close to the edge and you'd need a very long piece of webbing to keep the rope from scraping over a lot of sandstone. We ended up belaying from the top using the rope to extend the anchor.

Comments: If you plan to rap off the anchors on top a 60 meter rope will just barely get you down.

Comments: On 11/5/10 we found it impossible to get off the ground for this route. At first I thought a hold must have broken loose. However I noticed that the base is all sand and I wonder if pour-off from recent heavy storms dug it out. We may have been able to stack a huge pile of rocks to get started but it didn't seem worth the effort.
