Comments: This is a really cool topo. Thank you for posting it. It is great to see the actual write up from Ron about his great contribution to Zion climbing. That guy knew early on that pounding sandstone cracks with pitons is not sustainable.

Thanks again Ron-O

Comments: This many routes concentrated at the entrance to the South Fork will only damage climber/hiker/park relations. It would be a good idea for climbers that want to climb new routes to start hiking into other areas of Kolob and away from heavily used trails. I'm guilty as the next guy for climbing close to trails, but adding routes in these areas will anger the wrong people. When I was in Kolob in the late 90's, the rangers were already really mad about the chalk and overusage at Namaste Wall. I... more >>

Comments: I hiked up on June 2, 2013. After the gulley, I was amazed at how fast the trail is growing in. Hopefully this will get some traffic from climbers and/or game.

Comments: The bolts on Snow Queens and Ice Fairies and Thats Rebolting have been replaced so all these routes now offer good climbing with modern protection in the exact spots as the first ascents. A good slab crag high in the sky.

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.
Also, the 5.10 on the second pitch can be avoided by climbing directly above the belay via a right angling crack/flake system. Follow the right angling system then traverse right over the roof to a bolt. Travel straight up from there. The variation is 5.7 and enjoyably ... more >>

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: 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.
