Many nice climbs  Sucess!

Climbed here on 3 occasions. The first time was with Paul, back in the early 80's. I recall Crescent Crack, and Bushwack Crack. Also climbed a couple with Rick years later (Green Adjective & ?). Then climbed with Tim a couple years later (Guillotine, & 5.10b face to the right - many bolts).

Spectacular!  Sucess!

First visit to LCC...Fall was in full color. This has got to be one of the prettiest places on the planet.

Tanners Couloir

Fun to explore the wasatch last week.
a couple days of stable concrete snow followed by white room day at Alta. I can see why BD is based in SLC and why the Wasatch is special. Good times with MArty and Eric

Route Climbed: up the road by bicycle

I wanted to sign this log since I have traveled up and down the entire canyon by human power, when you put together cycling up and down the road with hiking or skiing up Grizzly Gulch. I've spent a bunch of time in LCC additionally, skiing Alta and Snowbird and some of the surrounding areas, and of course hiking in many of the side-canyons. I'm not much of a rock climber, but I have done a couple of climbs in LCC too, such as Crescent Crack, School Room, Lisa Falls Left...

Ski Alta

My all time favorite ski resort. Used to ski before I knew about climbing so I spent time there without ever giving a thought to all the awesome routes. Love to go back!

Little.  Sucess!

The canyon that did it for me. The canyon I compare all others to. The U shaped gem.

Beautiful  Sucess!

First route was a toprope of Beckey's Wall (5.7)

I've led:
Crescent Crack
Pentapitch (p1)
Crack in the woods
Bushwack Crack

Also climbed:
Beckys Wall (on many occasions)
Pentapitch (P1-3)
Satan's Corner
2/3 of the Thumb standard route
Bottleneck (this route sucks.)

My favorite climb is definately Bushwack Crack.
For some reason the start to Mexican Crack still blows my mind.
The bouldering is good too...

Gotta Love Little!  Sucess!

I have been eating up Little Cottonwood for the past several seasons, especially as my trad skills have developed and improved. I love this place. This year alone I have led Satan's Corner, the Coffin, Becky's Wall, the Hellgates, Pentapitch and Sasquatch as well as the good ol' backups like Crescent Crack and the School Room. Climb On Brothers and Sisters!

Oh how spoiled are the climbers in SLC! There is a lifetime of good and great climbs on perfect rock in this beautiful canyon. Great for learning trad. I miss it. The Coffin is a must.
