I have been climbing on the wasatch front for the last couple years and have never experienced a multi-pitch climb and really want to give it a go. I am looking for advice on good climbs to try (sport); I am interested in trying anything from a fun 5.8 to a fair 5.10a/b. Any ideas are greatly appreciated! big tuna

5.12 b
Squawstruck in Rock Canyon. Do the first 8 pitches and you can rap back down with a 60 or 70. Very closely bolted. The whole 22 pitch route goes at 5.11, but the first 8 pitches
In southern Utah there are great moderate multipitch sport routes at prophesy wall. Also at snow canyon there is a great 10c called Living on the Edge. 4 stars!

I'd suggest a trip to the city of rocks. Steinfell's dome has a nice moderate climb called Sinocranium, with really easy first 5 pitches, then a really exposed, exciting 5.8 pitch and a nice summit. Two easy raps off the back side and a short hike back to your packs.

Next to this is Theater of Shadows -- also a great, easy multi-pitch.

Theater of shadows boasts an amazing free rappel off the top.

Pick up James Garrett's West Desert guidebook and there are some easy multipitch routes at the blob area. Dallas McLellan

Early morning might be fine. That route gets some sun. Fun gig, though. Not sure I'd really call it a sport route, per se.

I think there's a couple of shorter multi pitch routes in the Storm Mountain area. Mule Hollow Wall has a couple. Devil's Castle might work but I wouldn't suggest it as a first multi pitch venue.

City of Rocks and/or Castle Rocks has great multi pitch routes. Any Pogue route.

Rock Canyon really gets overlooked for multi-pitch bolted sport routes. There are at least 17 multi-pitch routes that are in your range. Search MP for the routes here. Mornings and evenings probably best for most of these routes during the hot summer months. John Ross

Devils Castle at alta has a slew of sport multi's. Close to the city and fun, Protable Darkness is the easiest route and well bolted the whole way. scott cooney
