4 out of 5 stars water streak

This is by no means sport, the spacing between the bolts and the fixed pins is typical trad bolting style. Not sure this is the right climb, but it was worth the after work trip.

first time climbing Mormon Rock. it was a fun climb. but calling this route a 5.8 is kinda iffy. i would call it a 5.7 or a 5.7-, but it was fun.

the "old 5.6 route" is gone. the rusted bolts are still in the wall but the quick draw brackets are gone.

the 5.10? to the right of polygamist is good for the first fifty feet are good. then the next four bolts have no brackets(and thats the iffy part)....

i walked around for a while, and found some places that some future sport route will be going. overhangs and all

Overall. it was fun. not much climbing today, but trying to find the road/trail/climbs was a fun adventure.
