Yo, Brian in Salt lake,
Just installed the chains on DDD in Mule Hollow. Yes, the rap from the tree ledge is a tad short, but I could still clip my daisy into the next anchor. It could be extended in the future if you believe it is still overwhelmingly hazardous. A 70m rope would be the ticket....Beginners must use a bit of caution there and be sure to tie knots on the ends of the ropes. I would feel horrible if someone rapped off the ends of their ropes!...but it all seemed pretty casual to me and certainly alot more straight forward than walking off.
For yuks, I climbed the whole thing with just QDs and no gear...it certainly felt run out, but then well protected in the "hard" sections. I never noticed a "line of bolts" strung together? The bolt in the divet you mentioned? I don't really see a problem with it. I never did find a bolt to protect the last short pitch. Did I really put one there? A small rack can zip this thing up, but many placements require some creativity (read excellent learning vehicle!) Following the bolts, one climbs on denser and more compact rock than if one follows "the natural line" which doesn't always give the most interesting moves in my opinion. In the end, I feel it stands out as a great beginner climb on a "longer" line and gives the beginning leader a chance to place gear to back up bolts in thse runouts on a multipitch agenda. It may very well remain boring for the experienced more skilled climber...but I notice the reservoir ridge routes seem to get more traffic than almost anything in BCC these days!
What a beautiful, serene, and quiet place to climb in the Wasatch!
