3 out of 5 stars Victim of its own popularity.

The movement was cool, but couldn't get over the fact that it was waxed marble for feet the entire time.

2 out of 5 stars a

I do not understand why people are so psyched to climb on glass polished crap. This route would be a classic if it wasent polished like ice. All of the routes in this area are incredibly polished; so much that it's not even fun. I find it funny that the guidebook says this area offers the best sport in American Fork, I found it to be among the worst. There are routes only 100 feet away that are better. It's too bad, I can see how these routes used to be mega-classic. But with all the use, they have been reduced to 2-star polished ice climbs.
