Comments: Several large, natural rock fall events have recently occurred on Deville 3. Be cautious and aware the the nature of the routes may have significantly changed.

Comments: Is there a consensus rating for just the first pitch?

Comments: In regards to the first Rap anchor on power failure... It is still kind buried in mud, but the bolts seem fine and it isn't very hard to find. I moved most of the loose rock from the rock fall out of the way, so it is a bit safer now. Continue to use caution though especially if there is a party above as there is still a good amount of loose rock.

Comments: Fun route! With one 60m, a team confident enough to simul on 5.6-5.7 can do this route in 3 pitches. From the base, solo up the highest ledge (easiest way wanders a bit). 1. the leader links p1-2 and some of 3, (the second is simul-ing on easy ground). This is not runout if you bring doubles to #3. From there, two 40-45 meter pitches will get you to the top!

Comments: I agree that with the broken hold, 12.c would be a fair rating. That move is harder than anything on French are Here.

Comments: As of 11/21/10 the bolt is still missing. Is anyone planning on replacing it?

Comments: I told you it was hard Ian, you didn't believe me!

Anyway, my sending rack for this thing consisted of...

3 blue TCUs
4 yellow TCUs
2 orange TCUs
1 red TCU
a few stoppers.

That's all you need!

Comments: Great route, this thing eats stoppers like crazy. I placed a #3 down low, a purple tcu in a horizontal below the roof, and a 0.75 after the crux, the rest were nuts and fixed pins.

Comments: Can easily be done in 3 pitches with a 60m. Linking 2 and 3 by going left avoiding the big flake and up an easy runout arete is a nice variation that keeps the rope in a straight line.

Comments: When did you do the "FA"? I'vE been climbing this traverse for a couple years, and I'm sure I'm not the first either. Also, it's a shame that someone vandalized this problem with that stupid, orange, hippy sun thing.

Comments: Some of the bolts are in really funky spots, and some just create horrible rope drag. That's what happens when you bolt on lead! Still a good route, if you can downclimb to back clean the funky bolts.

Comments: Maybe there's a way to contrive a .12a sequence, but I didn't find it. The opening moves are a little thin, but really positive. 11b.

Comments: Yes, this is at the scoop area. It made more sense to me to put it here because the driving directions for the Land of Overhangs area is more appropriate then the Rotary Park directions. I'm a little confused as to why the Scoop is listed under Rotary in the first place.

Comments: I got the name for this one out of the Horsetooth Hang guidebook. If someone knows of a "more official" name or who did the FA, post up. It's a fun little crack problem, and there aren't many in the FoCo area, so I though it be worth posting up.

Comments: Let's not get carried away here, the static start could very well be a V7 (I don't know because I'm not a V7 climber) but the problem as established is an old school V5. Once you figure it out it can feel even easier than the V4s next door. Inflating the grade on a historic problem because it's "better style" to contrive a harder way of getting 3 feet off the ground so one can have a more impressive V-number on their tick list seems ridiculous to me. Climb it with one hand tied behind your back ... more >>
