Location: UT : Wasatch Range : Ogden : The Schoolroom : Asbury Park : ... : Propulsion (5.12c)

Comments: Awesome route that is surprisingly continuous after the third bolt. Don't worry about the band of bad rock at the bottom, the quality isn't that bad and will clean up eventually. Half way up though is a big time bomb block that will come out sooner or later (sooner). Unfortunately the block is a perfect undercling pinch with an awesome thumb catch that is super fun to climb on. It looks like the route should still go at about the same grade after the block blows. The top finishes with some t... more >>

Comments: For what it's worth, here is the description from the Black Bible guidebook:

"Start on two undercling edges. Punch to the blocky arete. Pull over onto the slab. Finish on the North face if you are looking for an exciting ending.

Variation 1: Slick 50 Direct V9. Start the same as the original line. Instead of pulling onto the slab, follow the arete and top out at the peak of the arete on the sloper. The jug along the lip is off.

Variation 2: V8. Climb variation 1 with the jug along the... more >>

Comments: Like Nat says, I've always understood Kung Fu to avoid the arete entirely after the first move, which to me makes the most sense.

Comments: How far left is "quite a bit"? I topped out on the good crimps on the lip that are directly above the crimp rail on the face. That is also where I topped out Baldy though, so I guess I did Baldy wrong? Fun problem though, and definitely harder than Baldy.

Comments: Super fun route! Cruiser climbing to the 4th bolt, then increasingly difficult moves through a seam until a somewhat awkward toss to a sidepull, and a few tenuous but easier moves to the chains. Seems like it's maybe a little bit harder than Tiny Giant on the Gangsta Ledge, but probably still 13a. Next time I see Chris I'll find out if he sent it, and what the name is.

Comments: The first pitch has the worst stone of all the routes we climbed at Prophesy, but the second pitch is stellar.

Comments: This climb looks so much better than it climbs, especially from the sit start.

Comments: What do you think is the hardest up there? Also, is there really a 12a sequence I missed on this?

Comments: I haven't sent it yet, but I think it would be the 2nd ascent. I've got draws on it, and gave it a pretty good scrub, for anyone that wants to take a crack at it. There's tons of great climbs up there, more folks need to get on them!

Comments: A nice techy crux followed by a surprisingly pumpy finish up the overhanging arÍte.

Comments: This thing is basically a v4 boulder problem after 30ish feet of 5.8 climbing. A long draw on the 4th bolt helps. Cool crux moves though.

Comments: This is a really good route. The crux is probably v6ish, with good, though sometimes small holds, and tenuous footwork.

Comments: I climbed this in a light rain last spring, which made the liebacks above the pin pretty exciting. If this weren't stranded in the middle of the west bluff, I think it would be a classic.

Comments: This climbs the right face only of the Cul-de-Sac dihedral. Presumably it tops out the same as Cul-de-Sac, however you can climb the face/corner to the left of the standard top out. Doing this adds a few fun slab moves and makes the climb more continuous. I also thought this was harder than Hales Corner.

Comments: This is a pretty good route, and I wouldn't even call it a squeeze job. Don't let it's location back in the corner keep you from getting on it.
