Location: UT : Wasatch Range : City Creek Canyon : Shoreline Crag
By: Spencer Weiler When: 3 days ago

Comments: More detailed info on the approach. The "heavily traveled trail" is the bonneville shoreline trail(BST) if you're looking on a map of city creek. After turning left up the main trail at the power pole junction, the 5th switchback is one where the trail turns from heading NE to NW, and there are some wooden boards serving as support for the trail. Head straight up north(not west) into the woods on some pretty loose, steep dirt that may not look like much of a trail. This may seem counterintuitive... more >>

Comments: Pretty fun technical pocket pulling. It's unlikely you'll deck as you clip 3 bolts in a 6 foot section off the deck.

Comments: Tyrolean is currently found inbetween the membrane parking and bush pullout parking mentioned in the description. Either walk west of membrane parking or east of bush parking towards the river and should be obvious if it's there. Walking west of the bush parking looking for the pipe as mentioned here will result in you not finding the crag.

Comments: Give this area 5 years and hopefully it will be as clean as division, but for now, beware the choss! We did our part by breaking several holds, mostly feet, on every route.

Comments: Hardest route at the crag. Where are the jug pockets?

Comments: If you think "feature" looks like choss than this route looks like leftover dynamite blasted rock , but similarly somehow stays together when you yard, albiet gently. Some pinches and under clings provide an uncharacteristic chadbourne non pocket crux which leads to 20 more feet of "this shouldnt have been bolted " terrain involving a very real leg breaking fall into a ledge to reach the anchors on the worst rock of the cliff.

Comments: Shoreline gets a 12c rating both here and in the ruckman guide, not 12a

Comments: More of the same only with smaller pockets. The crux between bolts 4-5 involves a long throw between two good 2 finger pockets with all sorts of ticked sucker ones nearby that people must use to make the route a lot harder for them. A connesieur of knee bars will find a decent one in the blocky corner post crux before rounding the corner into more pockets and one last deadpoint bump to good finishing jugs. The top out on this is much less stressful than beam and coke though not a cakewalk.

Comments: By far one of the most fun routes in the wasatch. Jugs to Heaven. A slightly harder version of teenova in af. The most hollow and fragile Part of the the X'd flake busted on us today but the majority of it remains.

Comments: Super good climbing. A lie back side pull midway up creates a tough move to a small two finger pocket, then jugs to the last bolt. Chances are high you will botch the top sequence clipping the chains on the first go. There aren't jugs so don't hope for any.

Would love to believe this is 12d, but it's pretty soft like most of the ratings up here.

Comments: This thing looks like horrible rock from below but it's is actually pretty solid. The giant horns in the sponge like rock have some petrified guano but it didn't feel loose. Secret pockets and lie backs make up the middle 5.10 section. As tempting as it is to bail out left at the top to avoid the 11a roof, the direct route is dang fun involving an under cling pocket to help mantle over the top to the anchors. Best warmup of the 3 climbs I would consider in that genre

Comments: The approach directions are good but I'll add my own comments to maybe help clarify. The distance from the parking to the turnoff is .7 miles by my gps. After crossing through the stream bed you should see a small rope swing. Head uphill from there east on the main trail. A trail leads down and left 1 min after the swing and should be ignored. 2 faker trails appear on the right as the trail flattens out before an excellent looking trail with a small cairn appears on the right before the short do... more >>

Comments: Classic guidebook blunder by Mr. Day. I found the intial moves getting my feet onto the giant slanting triangle hold while liebacking the jug sidepull and clipping bolt 2 to be easy enough, but failed to move any further up the arete without Old Bessie the cow yelling "barn door" causing me to cease upward progress. I guess I wasn't slapping happy enough. If one can acquire the small crimp hole 4 feet higher the rest is in the bag pending no unfortunate beta botching. Bouldery to balancy. Need t... more >>

Comments: Dang hard top move to access the poop hueco. A few positive crimps and some really crappy other holds. I failed to gaston, dyno, or perform any other trickery here. My bail biner awaits someone stronger.

Comments: Keep in mind it's a 40-45 min drive from the junction of sunset and bluff st to the crags when planning your trip out. We climbed at Kelly's rock in mid August and it was hot but in the shade the entire time.

Comments: I would like to 2nd the recommendation to not get sucked into hiking too early as there are a few boulders with cables on them. Go all the way to the major switchback which is 1.5 miles from the pavement like the poster said, not 1.3 or 1.4. If you aren't on a nice trail from start to finish, you are off route.

Comments: I banged my head against the division wall like 12 times in stubborn blindness trying to use the ticked crappy crimp/pinch out left to reach the jug over the roof to finish, whipping constantly at the same move. Luckily I discovered on my 13th go that the small slender female fingers of my left hand could fit in the top slider pocket normally used as a right hand cross through, a simple bump making Brad Heller's accurately described v6 problem into a casual v4.

Discovering this beta was like ... more >>

Comments: I decided to start sleeping on this climb as it was softer than my down comforter. No harder than License to Thrill though the top mantel roof pull might spit you off should your flexibility be that of a lead pipe.

Comments: No moaning on this one. Some grunting maybe, but no moaning. Very quality climbing. Every sport climb should have a mantle to finish it off!

Comments: Bolts are weird but I didn't really think they were bad. Maybe I'm used to clipping star drives in the desert. I found the crux to be the last bolt. Bad ledge fall potential if you blow it, and its not easy. I happily yarded here as my ankles are worth far more than a redpoint.

We found a nice trail that leads from the top of the ridge directly to the top of the gully without any cross country. Take a left at a big boulder on a faint path. The entrance to the gully is 1 min from there.
