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

Comments: I'd rate it C2-. I've done it twice and aided most of it. I probably claim 5.8/5.9 being the hardest I freed. Take a big cam and some brassies. This route is funner than it looks.

Comments: I got the first armless/handless toprope on this years ago. Let us rejoice that these new bolts will be pulled. There is NO excuse, even for the first ascentionist to add such lame bolts.

Seriously, we need to stop bickering and defend our wilderness.

This is getting ridiculous. What the hell are the drillers thinking? I'm putting a two-sized wrench in my pack.

Comments: Well said Mr. Smoot! I could not agree with you more. I learned to climb in the Wasatch and I also have witnessed a disturbing trend of bolt placement regardless of natural protection. It seems that setting up a gear belay is becoming extinct. On some of my first ascents, I've been guilty of having the tunnel vision of looking for a spot to drill a belay rather than looking at what the rock has to offer. Recently I've been changing my mindset and trying to only place bolts where absolutely m... more >>

If this was still around, then the Wasatch outdoor community may have never started drinking PBR.

Comments: Ode to beers and really low budget video! We just got done watching the Intensive Care video, and boy-o-boy it was good. We are going back up there for another shoot, except we will bring beautiful women to make this flick really worth watching. Its funny how 5.11 slab looks so lame and easy from a camera. We have figured out that if you add sexy women, all climbing looks cool. Even bouldering looks cool with hot girls!

Comments: Hey Mike,

Don't sweat checking out the last bolt. We're going to stuff in a rawl when we go up on this slab again.

Comments: After the third bolt, go left into the black water streak. If you look directly up, you'll see a bolt really high. This bolt is an added bolt that really doesn't make sense, don't run it out to here! There is also a new "calderone" route to the left. Since I last did this route, it was obvious climbing with following the bolts. Now, you have to decipher which bolts to climb to. Anyhow, this route is fun if you can figure out the original bolt line to follow.

Comments: This route has cleaned up nicely. I think its softer 5.10 because I led it bobble headed and out of balance due to a bad head cold. Take a medium sized cam and a runner for the moves before the last bolt.
Thanks to whomever put is all the new belays.
