Good grief are you guys hard out there! If I move to Utah will I be able to climb that hard?

Snow and no T-shirt........ does that mean that 13a is hard?

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that bolt was placed on the FA in in the early '80's (A3). If not, it was placed by the FFA in 1985? That would be almost 30 years ago.

Turns out I was incorrect in my previous post. According to DB there used to be a pin where that bolt is and the FFA was climbed without the bolt.

Also, I don't see any snow in this picture...

The climber has his hand and foot in the sweet 5.9 hand crack while making that clip, and the next move is the bouldery crux involving a three finger lay back move off a sloping hold to the left. That hold...well...sucks, and you have to power high off it to send the right hand to the upper crack. The left foot needed to do this throw is overhanging flatness, so it's all about power in those three fingers. What you hit with the right is a sloper, so you have to move quickly, bumping up the crack to more positive holds. Once you are established in the upper crack, it's 5.11 to the anchors: pumpy but way easier than the initial 5.12c fingers. I'll never forget what that crux hold felt like, and neither will you.

Why is there a bolt? Looks like two good cracks for gear....
