Location: CO : Golden : Clear Creek Canyon : Anarchy Wall : Chaos (5.13a)

Comments: Super thin and body-position specific. Worked this route for over a year trying to figure out the beta. Finally put it all together today; cold temps and wind definitely helped. Also I found clipping the 3rd bolt on the route to be pretty safe. I took multiple falls from the holds right at the 3rd bolt, and I never decked.

Comments: I may have left a bright green Outdoor Research jacket at Anarchy in the last couple of weeks; probably over by Chaos. If anyone picked it up let me know. 303-868-1317.

Comments: Hey, I would like to add a route on this face to the right of Ghost. Looks like a line would go, I've rapped down it a couple of times to start cleaning it and putting the moves together. I have everything I need to put the new line in, except for a drill. I even have my own bit. If someone would be willing to lend my a drill in exchange for a six-pack or a couple of bucks, send me a message.

Comments: In my opinion, following the bolt line of Mr. Squirrel is more difficult than .11c. It was much more difficult for me than "Death of Innocents," "Lying on the Ground," and "Unknown Route (Brown Cloud);" all of these routes are N. Table routes that are rated 5.11d. I would say that it was on par or slightly easier than Mrs. Hen (12a) and Chicken Dance (12a).

Comments: One of the things that I didn't understand about this crag was the grading of the routes. The 5.6 and 5.7 felt extremely sandbagged, the 5.10b felt true to the grade, and the 5.12 felt soft. My comparison here is 4 years of climbing in Colorado and in Arkansas.

Comments: Steve, I got on that three bolt line up top today, and it was harder than I thought it would be 11plus range probably. I had to hang a couple times. I ended up topping out and cleaning my draws with a stick clip.

Comments: Hey, I left a Gri-gri at the bottom of this climb on 5/8/13, checked today and it wasn't there. If you picked it up/found it, let me know and I'll buy you a six pack. - Andrew Riley 217-779-7779.

Comments: There is a death block waiting to fall to the left of the 4th bolt. It is tempting to use it as a foot, but it is really loose. I left chalk x's on it

Comments: There is another route in this area that climbs two bolts up to the middle of a face, then it climb three bolts horizontally across the face, and then it climb an arete to the chains. It looks like a really proud line. Anyone know what it is?/ what the rating is?

Comments: Do you know who the first ascentionist was Eric? Also is the 80 feet you're referring to including the second pitch?

Comments: In the Falcon Guides guidebook, this is a sport route which is what I climbed it as. But I agree with the other comments: felt hard for a 5.9.
