Comments: Try to get this pitch. The best clean aid pitch I've ever done in Zion.

Comments: Fantastic Route! For the last "technical"pitch: Take a black diamond grappling hook along with a black diamond talon. If you are less than 6' the fixed pin is waaayyy out there. Also, I pulled a fixed pin out 15 feet from the top and had to use a loweball to pass this section. It would have sucked without that ball nut. Most anchors have new bolts, however bringing a handrill, some 1/2 rawls, and the skill to put them in would be a great thing to do to any of the belay or rappel anchors that ... more >>

Comments: The last rap can be avoided by scrambling down the rocky gulley. We were thinking about removing that anchor but left it because the gulley may be different when it fills up with snow necessitating a rope to help lower down.

Comments: You can skip that belay and combine the first two pitches if you have a ton of runners and back clean. I soloed it in one long pitch and it wasn't to lame to clean. Was the belay added so people can free that little pitch and lower?

Comments: Good route. Great "sporty" climbing with chosslicious goodness. We climbed it as a 3 party, and all felt the first pitch was harder than the second. I would rate the first pitch 5.10d and the second 5.10a/b. The first pitch has a strange sequence and some committing moves over clean rock. The second pitch is glorious and steep with jugs abound. The 5.8 pitch felt 5.6, and the 5.10c section on the second to last pitch seemed hard, but eased after I could visually see the moves. The last pitc... more >>

Comments: Sorry Dude,

Adding rap anchors to Steorts is an awful idea. I've lost a few stoppers when I was forced to retreat in a rainstorm on that wonderful ridge, however I feel that its just part of the experience. People need to learn how to deal with stuff like that if they ever want to venture out, beyond the "public service" routes. You would help they newbies more if your refrained from this. Thanks for posting, rather than doing it and starting up a poop storm.

One vote for NO

Comments: Quality rating is hard for me so I just click up the stars and leave it at that. The sport routes need a little cleaning, so bring a helmet for the belayer. I also believe the rating of a climb should rise be based on the amount of people, I.E. everything at The Slips is not classic.

Comments: The marked bolts are guestimates, not exact. In fact, the amount may be completely off.

Comments: Led this yestersay and I really think its a great short climb. Bring a bunch of tiny to small nuts. Brassies are great. I saw a few spots where the smallest lowe-ball would be bomber, so bring those if you got'em. I placed a #6 (green) metolius down low, and a #7 (light blue) metolius around the corner with a long sling. HIgher up I stuffed a #00 metolius and a #0 metolius. This thing is worth climbing if you are comfortable with small gear and know how to place it. ... more >>

Comments: Really Fun Little Route. I climbed it without using any bolts. I felt the upper feature was bomber and the gear was good. Really fun cruiser crack climbing. I would recommend ignoring the bolts and stay in the crack.

Comments: I went back and added four bolts to the first pitch, moved a bolt up high, and added chain to two of the three belays. I feel this route is no longer "R" and is more of a "L" for Leisurely. Rap from the top and hit the middle webbing belay if you have one rope. Rap from the top to the first chain belay if you have two ropes. The only cam needed is a #3 camalot or equivalent. Really fun leisurely route.

Comments: Lets chill out on new sport routes on this wall! The park service is already quite pissed off about this area. Are you guys hand drilling these? PLEASE make sure that they cannot be seen from the trail. Are you using colored chalk? The rangers watch this area and use it as a compass on handling climbing regulation in the area. It would be a shame to see new anchors get banned because of a couple of one pitch routes while there are so many untouched big walls waiting for somebody to have a g... more >>

Comments: Are the hoops and red tape still being implemented in Snow Canyon conerning first ascents? When I was climbing there, I had to submit a potential first ascent to a climbing advisory board. They would decide whether or not the route could be approved if fixed anchors were to be drilled. All of the routes I submitted were approved however a friend of mine was denied on one. Is that how is still is?

Comments: I love it when somebody who did NOT get the first ascent of a route comments on what should have been done. Pretty easy when "hindsight is 20/20." I have climbed many routes while I pondered "what the f#@$" on the placement of the bolts or anchors. However, I only intimately understood some of the first ascentionists actions after I put up a route or two.
I sincerely distain those that comment that first ascentionist(s) should have put more chains, bolts, or cleaned some chunk of roc... more >>

Comments: I bolted this route roped solo. I remember being concerned with the second pitch being hard to clean while on solo. I really didn't want to have the "touching the void" situation for anybody seconding this pitch including myself during the first ascent. Thats the reason for the protection placement on the second pitch. The second pitch travels diagonally so I protected it better for the seconding climber. The first pitch is super easy and straight so I protected it less. Fun route
