Description 

Underneath the huge overhang at the Stone Garden there is a ledge that can be reached by walking/scrambling up some loose dirt to the right of it. Once on the ledge there is a bolt that can be clipped. This marks the start of the route. Sessions follows the bolts that go furthest left of the climber. Sessions reminded me of climbing an upside down stair case. Very fun and substained climbing!

As fun as sport climbing gets... Sessions is reason in itself to get me to the Uintas. Nice work Jonathon!

one of my favorite clip-ups of all time.
this gem almost overhangs as much as it goes up!

We snapped a dogbone on the 4th bolt of this today. He took a pretty big whipper and nearly decked. Looks like there was a pretty sharp edge slowly sawing the quickdraw on each fall (there were probably 4-5 beforehand throughout the day), right before the crux. Check your draws for wear on this one if you're working it for a while!

Was it just me, or does this route get terrible rope drag? I'm not sure if long draws would alleviate it, but the final lip turn was horrendous. I actually had to jug the route to clean it. Def. a candidate for permadraws, in my opinion.

What is the line just left of Sessions on the big overhang? It is now marked as 12b in chalk, and it also has a stick figure marked in chalk under the overhang. This is a pretty fun climb, and it doesn't seem to be on any map.

The Route left of Sessions is called Obsessions 12b. I bolted and then led it several years ago. When the route was first done there was a large rock underneath it that enabled the first holds to be reached. The rock is now gone. Without the rock the start is a lot harder and at 12b some pull on the first bolt.

Also worth saying that the traverse left out of Sessions to the top of StinkBug is incorrectly reported in the guide book.

Its name is Properly Josed 5.12a and the first ascent team included
Jose Periera . I think that the date is incorrect too. as the route was climbed in August 1998.

Hope that this helps clarify matters.

Thank you, Martin! Can you add this information here on MP?

The bottom part of this totally shut me down. I bailed at the fixed draw in the middle. Do the holds get bigger at the top?

I gave Sessions four stars, but I believe Obsessions (just left of Sessions) is actually better and now takes over as the funnest route in the Uintas (IMHO).
