Finished on TS Standard route, started on Powerglide. Seems like an obvious problem that flows well.

Comments: Was up there yesterday (9-16-2010) and the hanger and nut were missing from one of the two anchor bolts? We used the anchors to the left and used the one remaining anchor as a directional. Not sure if there was a safety issue with the hanger that is now missing???

Comments: I can see where some of the confusion might be coming from on the grade of this climb. I went probably 2' left of where my climbing partner went between the 1st and 2nd bolt and it was a good deal more spicy. Having your right hand in the small "pocket" and not having the good sloper for a foot adds something. If you're looking for a 5.9, I would stay right; like the photos on this page show (crux photos).


Location: CO : South Platte : Cathedral Spires Area : Angle Iron Slabs : Purgatory (5.10a R)

Comments: Is this the slab that has the angle irons sticking out at about 15' up? If so, slinging the tree and rapping will require a 70m rope. So the 75' route description is a bit confusing.

Comments: Fun problem, tricky start. The discussion on Powerglides page mentions the Standard Rt. as being V3? I started on the two crimps from Powerglide bumped to the extremely chalky block on the right - matched in the good pocket slot and finished on the jugs from the Standard Rt. Seemed V3-V3+. Don't know if I was mixing problems or if that's the New TS Standard Rt as mentioned above?

Comments: If you're 5'7" or taller, you should be able to start on the smaller, lower boulder at the base of the problem (the chalky rock in the pictures). I started out odd and off balance crimping on two small holds; leaned out right and got the good pocket all while keeping my right foot high on the above mentioned boulder.

Comments: How does the standard route end, if your going from left to right?
It looks like (by the chalk) that numerous people go up and out before the crimpy overhung section on the far right. Great traverse, I just can't find much said about this one, unlike Monkey & Cloud.

Comments: Fun problem, a bit hard to keep from bumping into the tree.
Off to the left there is a loose block, which is a good foot, but it is easy enough to avoid using it. This block is only a foot or so off the ground, so I don't see it being a safety hazard.

Comments: Fun route, interesting moves/line. Might not be a great route to lead for novices, some falls won't be very clean. The bolts seem to be placed very well, all around good route.

Comments: I think if you stay off to the left, just under the anchors the moves are 10+, but if you traverse within a few feet of HOT STUFF it's 10-.
The bolts at the top seem a bit confusing, the last bolt is off left, and the route seems to go right?

Comments: The sketchy start just changed a lot; most of the starting roof recently collapsed. I was there last Friday and it was fine, but I walk by the area today and there is a large pile of rock spread everywhere. Somewhat surprisingly, the first bolt is still intact, but the rock that stayed up in the affected area looks pretty sketchy.

Be careful hiking or climbing by this area!

Comments: Great route, great rock, but a little ways past the crux of pitch 1, a key hold was quite slimy and wet, there was a 2' wet streak.
I dried it and cleaned out the gunk but I'm guessing it typically gets that way this time of season.
P.S. Please drop me a line if you found a pair a Cobras at the base, I dropped them hiking at dusk, bfrank_8@hotmail.com, Thanks
