Comments: So, after the first roof, I went left through the next roof, does anybody else go this way? or is the hand crack to the right where most people go?

Comments: I've never been on this mountain without "epic'ing". It is a classic route for the mountaineer. The actual climbing when you get to it is good, but relatively short for the size of the route. I think the crux can easily become the descent. The cairns are misleading, and there is a lot of 5th class situation you can easily find yourself in. This is heavily complicated once the sun goes down. Studying the descent is far more important than studying the route up. This is a serious mountain, keep th... more >>

Comments: I found the route finding to be very devious, while descending after climbing the North Face route.

Comments: Fun but short crux. Definitely easier than Feeding The Beast right around the corner.

Comments: I think the overhanging route you guys are talking about is in the Spider's Den. There is only one route on the rock, and it is hard.

Comments: This route is not drawn in the beta photo with the power lines, but it is just right of route #1.

Comments: In the beta photo with the power lines, this is route #5. Also, the black rock at the crux is crimpy and prone to breaking.

Comments: In the beta picture with power lines, this is route #2. The first pitch is fun and only about 5.10c.

Comments: I stumbled upon this crag yesterday while trying to find the Bubble. Rossiter's Flatiron book is out of date as far as access in Bear Canyon, the climber's trail along the creek is now closed by Open Space. I don't know the best way to access this area, but I'm going to try the Mallory Cave trail next time. The routes on this wall are a lot of fun.

Comments: Short but fun, and the moves just need a little power.

Comments: I think the first pitch is a great warm up and a good route. However, the second pitch seemed a bit contrived, although with a nice finish. Could anyone give beta on the second pitch. I'll admit I had to use some french to get to the fourth? bolt. Can anyone tell me what the story behind the bolting is on this route?

Comments: This is a big wall. The avg height of the walls in this area is 1,000 ft, yet in your description you only give account off 300 ft? AC, could you possible give a more accurate description of the upper pitches?

Comments: Great climb, brought the gf on this one and she took a nice fall exiting the cracks onto the first bolt and took a good swing.

Comments: There is a crag near Tabernash and I don't know the name of it. I'm writing here because I think this is the closest area to the crag in question. From 40 you take a right onto 84/83, then spilt left onto 84 and a few miles down 84 you take the first left the rock outcropping just off the road on the east side and have 5 TR anchors. The routes are all moderate/easy but it is a pleasant sunny little crag. Does anybody know who put up these anchors or what the area is called?

Comments: I'm commenting here because I think Lower Boulder Falls is closer than Dream Canyon to the area in question, although Rossiter calls the area Lower Dream Canyon. I climbed a 75ft'ish sport route west of and below the Wall of Winter Warmth. The route was in the area called, by Rossiter, the Krishna Buttress. The route I climbed starter directly below the upper falls on the north side of the river, it starts next to a big boulder leaning against the wall which creates an overhang and the crux of t... more >>
