Location: CO : Telluride/Norwood area : Ophir : Ophir Wall : Main Wall : The Chameleon (5.12d)

Comments: In my opinion, this route would be a lot better (and probably see a bit more traffic) if another bolt or two was added. Honestly, one bolt would be enough to make it a lot safer. I understand the Ophir ethic, but not many people are going to want to risk potential groundfall over a sketchy cam placement to climb this thing. A line with a a similar set up that comes to mind is 'Secrets of Nature'. These are great lines, and I admire and respect the way in w... more >>

Comments: Not sure whether this is meant to be a sit start or a low stand/crouch start. I did it both ways. Definitely more solidly V5 from the sit. A decent little line.

Comments: In this case it is wrong. This is the problem to the right of the v3 you're talking about. It starts in the middle of the face.

Comments: Nice Troy. I'm happy to see that you stuck the dyno with one hand because it's good to know that it goes that way. Every time I hit the lip with one hand the swing is pretty hard to hold, but I can't get the double clutch method to work for me, so it seems like one hand will have to do for me. Crazy swing that way though.

This climb definitely favors the tall.

There's video of this problem being done out there if you're interested. It's an older video shot by Russ Greenwald. Here it is:

Comments: Hey Ross-

I use drop knees on it nowadays too, and I've upgraded this problem to V5 in the new guidebook that I'm working on, which I feel is pretty accurate as the moves are fairly burly, though I'm always open to grade suggestions.

Comments: Is there an anchor for this line? Bolted or gear? If gear, any insight on what size gear is needed to build one?

I have always been intrigued by this line...

Comments: Ian-

This climbs the sharper knife like arete. The other overhang to the right also has a v4ish climb and potential for a harder line or two. Tyler and I messed around on it a little bit a while ago. Really nice rock.

Comments: That looks about right to me, Troy. Agreed that starting lower than that is much harder.

You should check out the 'Arete Of Death'. It's only like 3-5 minutes away from the Chasm area. It's an old Dave Graham problem.

Comments: Matt--

I'm the one that mentioned it as being more suitable as a boulder problem with a drop off. There is an obvious jug that you could drop from and honestly the landing is pretty manageable with a handful of pads and spotters. You can also stick clip a high bolt to work the moves/provide a safer option. If you were to climb it as a route, the bottom section is clean, but the upper slab is pretty mossy at this point. I've contemplated rapping in and cleaning it, but I'm pretty sure this climb... more >>

Comments: I found this line when exploring in the UMWA/Small One area. It's clearly been climbed before and I thought it was pretty enjoyable, so I wanted to share it. Definitely worth the very short walk if you're already in the area.

If anyone has a different name for this boulder, let me know and I'll happily change it.

Comments: I'm sure this has been climbed before, so I'm not going to make any claim to a first ascent, despite the fact that it isn't listed in any of the three guides to Joe's Valley. I gave it a name that stuck with the 'shot' theme because I figured that would be better than calling it 'unnamed'. However, if anyone has another name for it, please let me know!

It's a really fun line and worth getting on in if you're in the area. The grade is just a suggestion. It could be easier. It could be harder. It... more >>

Comments: Got any photos or video? It would be cool to see how this line actually climbs. I thought it would probably be pretty cool, I just didn't want to devote much time to it because I had lots of other projects.

Comments: You can give it the 'bomb' if you want, I won't take offense. :) The flakiness of the feet is definitely annoying. I used the foot that looked least likely to break after also breaking a bunch of feet.

Comments: While this line does climb slightly different than its neighbors, it is fairly squeezed between these two lines which diminished the quality for me.

Comments: I went right hand to the small crimp that is ticked, like two feet directly above my head. Sort of a tricky deadpoint move. Fairly easy once you stick that move.

You should try the project scoop to the right of this. It's kind of cool and probably within your climbing grade range. It felt doable to me when I tried it a bit. You just have to crimp kind of hard on some small holds.

Comments: Nice video, Troy. Lots of great sends in there.

Just as a heads up, you started a couple of moves in on 'Gun Show'. It starts with the left hand to the left, next to the tree and the right hand on the left undercling. Making these moves and getting set up correctly for the dyno is definitely part of the difficulty. You're obviously strong enough to do it from the correct starting holds, but just wanted to point it out so other people don't start in the wrong place.

Comments: I guess if this information is going to begin showing up on here, I can contribute my knowledge about many of the lines. This area has seen another wave of development over the last few years, so there's a lot of stuff that isn't in my guidebook. I know that many of the climbers that have been part of that development would prefer if the area remained 'off the grid', but it seems inevitable that it will start showing up places.

Comments: John--

I'm stoked on trying this climb next time I'm in NH. A few questions for you.

Is there a bolted anchor for setting up the top rope? If not, what gear would I need? What's the easiest/best line to get to the anchor to set up the top rope? Does it share an anchor with one of the other lines?

I might even give your line at Quincy a go!

Thanks.
