Comments: I just climbed this route today and its given a 5.10a rating in "Rock Climbing the Bay Area" and is a great little climb. First time up, a beginner like me had to use my arms a lot but was able to do it no problem and relaxed second time. Lots of fun and interesting rock.

Comments: Avalon (cold this time of year), Animal World and Plotinus Wall (both warm this time of year). Solar Dome is also warm and worth a visit.

Comments: Greg, I don't know if you remember me, but you, Clean Dan, Derek and I hung out on more than one occasion at the campground on the North Rim swilling beers, (Sheaf Stouts, of course on the part of Derek and myself) way back when. I climbed a number of routes with Derek back then in the Black, mostly getting dragged up serious pitches. Those are very special memories for me. If I remember correctly at all, Derek was not able to free the infamous OW. I'm almost sure that we did not have any mor... more >>

Comments: Instead of traversing left to finish the last pitch, a nicedirect finish goes straight up overhanging rock in the 5.10range - nice and airy!!!

Comments: I dont normally post stuff, but this was a great route. getting pushed around by strong winds halfway between the anchor and the 3 aliens(red,yellow,green) that I stuffed in the crack made the route exciting. Falling is not an option on this climb. I remember manteling knob was a little unnerving (chris parks) I think the FT's ( read this as F' ing Tourists were wondering why I was sticking all the " gear " I had in the crack below the anchors. If they were around earlier I was coaching my ... more >>

Comments: The new bolted line to the right is a bit close, but the bolting doesn't interfere with PPBB. The new line is a bit contrived. It is interesting climbing and seems like solid 5.11 if you take some care to avoid easier ground.

Comments: Guert's ridge does have a route in fact, Guerts Ridge 5.5 (Irene Guert,O'dell Peterson, Harold Goodro 1940's!)!" It's a fun one too, especially in winter for added flavor. Check out the description in the Mt Olympus section. My favorite of the olymps slogs...as it ends right on the summit and has some fun moves interspersed with log, but aesthetic easy sections. a great solo (though you must carry a rope for the raps)

Comments: There are several lines in Eldo where a bolt or 2 would open it as a lead, still dangerous but not suicidal. This route is a prime example. The problem is the FHRC guidelines stipulate that bolts be used to create "safe" climbs. Standards are rising; certainly 5.12x is within the comfort zone for some of the young and strong highball boulderers who call Boulder home. So maybe adding a bolt or 2 here and there is no longer necessary?

There is still a lot of unclimbed rock in Eldora... more >>

Comments: This is a good climb, although it is a little short.

Take a couple of Blue Aliens or something of equivalent size to protect the small part of the crack, which is the crux. You are not going to get anything bigger in there. A couple of medium to 2 inch cams will suffice for an anchor.

Comments: By modern standards this climb is well protected and by JTree standards the climb is sewn up. Enjoy a well protected 10b bolt climb - a JTree rarity. The climb is protected by 6 bolts and leads to a two bolt anchor that had a couple of slings and biners on it as of Dec 2005.

The crux is above the 4th bolt. I found the rock on the route to be loose/sandy, and some of the holds to be a little weak. The climbing is on positive holds on the lower section and balancey smears and slopers on the uppe... more >>

Comments: Any ground fall is a problem when considering you are a bolt or more above the ground. I can only give this route one star considering the super high quality longer routes nearby.

Comments: The ice on the left side is mostly in, albeit somewhat wet due to the mild temps on Friday, 12-23-05. The left part of Jaws section is starting to form - with one column just touching, but still too fragile to climb. Nothing on the right side is even close to forming.

Comments: From an earlier Brad Boner post "and the route left of that has some wacky Spanish name, i think, and a rating of around 11b..." Actually the wacky named route left "Ne Soyez Pas Un Poule Mouilee" is loosely translated in Frenach as "Don't Be A Chicken".

Comments: Once again, don't bitch about rock if you can't spank the route. Early Dec, plenty warm to work the wank on this sweet little prize. Hard is hard, but that don't make bad.

Comments: Climbed Jaws on Saturday. Found the left side to be in good climbing shape. The steep pillar was a bit thin at the top (feet on rock). The left side is in shade by around noon which is highly desirable. The right side has fallen off.

Comments: Route is in good condition. As of today, little spindrift coming off the upper pitch as has been my experience in the past. High winds have kept most of the snow off the top. Was fatter last year in my opinion. Current conditions resemble picture at very top. Definitely not in WI4 condition (again, in my opinion), more like WI3-3+. Would like to send a thank you out to those who broke the inital trail after all the snow. Even in current condition, took a longer to get up than previous yea... more >>

Comments: Hi Folks,

On the first ascent, this route had substantial aid.

We did the free ascent on-sight, no fixed ropes, no topo, no nothing, only about a week after the F.A.

Normally, I am opposed to re-naming routes when they go free, but given that this is an Olevsky route I will point out that the appropriate name as a free climb is 'Babes In The Sandbox'.

have funDave Jones

Comments: Very deep snow on the approach. I hope our wallowing makes the next team's hump easier. Really cold day, yet the left WI3 gully was really wet. Lots of ice with several good options.
