Comments: Starting from the ground and without using the block this seemed 11a approaching the first bolt from the left, and 11b approaching from the right. If you stand high on the block and start the route, it decreases the difficulty a little to 10c/d.

Comments: Brilliant climbing, but contrived bolting to increase intimidation factor. Crux bolt should be closer to the lip where apparently it used to be from the old bolt hold.

Comments: Excellent new addition to the Wiper. May be the best route on the crag. 5 bolts of big hold warm up climbing to an Inobvious crux to a pumpy & technical head wall. Absolutely brilliant! Nice work to the FA.

Comments: Many thanks to Jason Halladay for making a special trip out to El Rito and recovering my camera! In addition to putting up many awesome routes at significant personal expense, Jason went out of his way to recover a camera for a guy he didn't know. One thing that has kept me climbing for many decades has been meeting so many wonderful human beings, like Jason, who are part of our tribe. Thanks, bro...

Comments: Thanks for the update, Steve. Glad to see the fixed pin removal proposals were defeated. Hopefully the pins that were removed without application will be replaced by those responsible.


Location: CO : Boulder : Flagstaff : Three of a Kind Wall : The Traverse (V5)

Comments: There is a good low variation that uses some big slopers and a thin crimp that adds a little more challenge to this classic and bumps it to V5. It's an SDS that starts with both hands on a sloping pinch, moves left slapping more slopers, and joins the regular traverse at the first set of jugs. From the jugs, continue staying low to an undercling and cross through into the crack at the mid-point. Recommended. I tried for years but was never able to send the final 6-8' low variation from the cra... more >>

Comments: This route has gotten much harder since the crimp on the right wall of the corner disintegrated. This is now the crux.

Comments: Climbing on first half is OK, but bolts are placed to the right which makes route finding less obvious. The second half is contrived and poorly bolted. An attentive belayer is necessary to avoid a ledge fall on the upper half; 2 ways to pull the roof - I thought the right option better.

Comments: Chipped. Hard to onsight. Grade seems height/reach related, unless you're Jimmy. Best route on the crag, which is obviously a low bar.
