The steady stream of small rocks was a bit unnerving. Where the coulouir splits and the left (main) couloir funnels down, I decided to head right, since less stuff seemed to be coming from that direction. After climbing a short ice step, a mixture of rock, ice, and snow led to the cornice just north of where the Grunge would have topped out. Though I knocked plenty of garbage off some rock ledges, I was not bombed at all. Fun stuff!

May 16, 2011 -- Enjoy this so much last year went and did it again this year. This time we started at Mutual Dell, when west on the Timpanokee road and up the coulior above Rock Canyon, then up the Grunge.

June 15, 2010 -- After getting rained out the week before I was lucky enough to make it back and have the opportunity to climb this fantastic route. Watch out for falling rocks!

Climbed with Matt Van Horn and Apachedino. We parked at Loop B and after the gate took the Great Western Trail that goes right (#151). After you get up high the trail will start to move away from the ridge, so just head up on top and there is a faint game trail that you can take until you can gain access to the slope that will take you above Woolley's hole. This was the perfect way to go with almost no Bushwhacking at all.

The conditions in the Grunge were near perfect. We booted up and stayed right of the main runnel. We had rocks constantly coming down. Most of them were small, but a few of them could have taken your head off. Going through the tight funnel was probably the scariest part of the day, although exiting the couloir on the steep snow slope was also an adrenaline rush, as we had to find our way out between a HUGE cornice and some sketchy rotten rock. This is one of the best snow climbs in the Wasatch.
