Comments: Beautiful route. I climbed it on Sunday of a busy Labor Day weekend when there were ~100 cars in the Big Sandy parking lot. We only saw one other party on the route, so it seems to be a good option to avoid crowds in the Cirque.

P4 as described above seemed like the crux. When the crack ends, climb some 5.8/5.9 slab to another thin crack before traversing right. These moves are exciting as gear is below your feet, but the fall would be safe.

We talked to another party that traversed too early... more >>

Comments: Awesome climb for sure. I typically have to fight hard to get up 5.11s and I didn't have any trouble leading this. Felt like 10-. I found it easier than Hot Toddy.

Comments: Different strokes for different folks but I didn't love this route or Milky Way. For some reason I really prefer the routes at Tatooine. Both of these seemed really sharp and crimpy.

Comments: This is my new favorite sport climbing crag on the Wasatch. Thanks to those who committed the resources to getting these routes in.

I'd really recommend a helmet up there. As the routes are new there is still some loose rock. I broke a hold or two and my belayer was glad for her helmet.

I'll definitely be back to this zone.

Comments: The second pitch is as good it gets. We were able to get to the ground on a single 70m. Next time I'm doing it as one pitch. Props to those who put in the hard work on this crag.

Comments: Good description above. The approach and descent are pretty un-fun but straightforward enough. The climb had some really nice sections of solid rock and a lot of fun low 5th class stuff.

Rock quality was better than I expected it to be but there were still a few moments where footholds were turning to kitty-litter beneath my feet. We stayed roped up for a lot of the route with mostly simul-climbing. This would be a bit stressful for me to solo because of all the loose rock and portable hand-ho... more >>
