Not a hard climb. Just right of the last line of bolt. Although I vaguely remember seeing a new line of bolts on the west.


I used the anchors up top.

I did some recon based on a number of questions that have come up about the bolt lines on Dogwood, and I've added a photo to this route. I believe the new bolt line (west most current bolt line as of 8/1/04) follows the original Take Me To The River route. I honestly don't know when this occurred, but it's been a while since that bolt line appeared. I climbed the line and it feels 5.7-ish, so I'm sold on it being the original route.

I believe this to be the route where this past spring I retrofitted the two very rusty and scary spinner "top rope" bolts with massively bomber "u" type glue in Fixe bolts. I don't recall noticing any fixed anchors on the route, however, though debatable, this may be the most high traffic top rope climb in the Wasatch. It is reasonably well protected with gear on lead.
TR away!
