Comments: I've been climbing this fine route for years and used to consider its potential as a doable, long, free solo. However, the kids started showing up, and I quickly tossed that idea out the window, as I'd rather live to climb with them than be dead. The boldest thing I've ever done on this line is repeated ascents using only the fixed gear.

Regardless, a buddy and I were wrapping up End to End on Sunday, and as I belayed him I noticed someone approach the base of New Era. After realizing he had no... more >>

Comments: Clint - just lead it and have the second clean on the way up. You can belay the second from the top, just be smart in how you set up your belay, and pay attention to how your rope might run over edges. I usually extend my belay a bit so as to get below the sharp edges that are at the foot of the belay ledge and pose the most threat, and back this up with one of the bolts at the top of the pitch. This provides for an exciting and exposed belay over the canyon. If you're smart with your belay, yo... more >>

Comments: Wow...In Search of Unicorns has been completely hijacked. Oh well. Hey Mike - I assume you're the same Mike Anderson from Higher Grounds. And the same one killin' everything in Zion. Correct? If so...strong work bro. If not...yeah...your jokes suck. But keep eggin' on Pete. I want to see him get fired up.

Comments: Well said, Allen. Not only the first big ascents in the Black, but some in the Valley as well. What about Jimmy's ascent of Cosmos? The first solo FA on the Captain! And EVERYTHING in the desert! You're right - they invented desert crack climbing (insert ad for Super Crack film). Not to take anything away from the great Stonemasters, but we always here about those guys. IMO - the generation of Springs climbers that you listed is one of the most influential crews in American climbing (don't get t... more >>

Comments: Probably many solo aid ascents. I've aid-soloed the first half of the route myself, and I know some old-schoolers that have done the whole thing. Springs climbers gotta have something to practice on before taking their solo-aid to bigger walls. Not much different than doing it with a partner, just a lot more grunting.

Comments: What up, Darren?

Free it? Are you nuts? You must have me confused with someone that can actually climb. I'm sending hard-11 on my best days. I'm not man enough to go after that 12d finger crack. Just a chump standing in aiders on this thing. The job and the kids are holding me back bro.

Had beers with Pete G. last week. Your name came up. Something about me giving him a hard time because it might not be possible to claim "dirtbag" status and drive an Audi too.

We should hang some time. Myself... more >>

Comments: Did this yesterday with Josh Koenig. As everyone has said, the rock quality is not inspiring (especially the upper pitch), but it's good for aid practice and provides some excellent exposure. The lower pitch only requires gear placements in the finger crack (nuts/small friends), but the upper pitch requires multiple gear placements between pins, ranging from nuts to a #3 Camalot. As previously stated, the anchor setup at the top is a combination of 2 old pins (both looked good) and a beefy... more >>

Comments: Did this 6/12 with John "The Hero Factor" Eland. Two dads trying to get 'er done while we still can (7 kids between us).

Few points of note - We took the Metberry Gulch approach. Came up from Colo Spgs, took CR 3 from Florissant up to Cedar Mtn Rd (CR 360), and then took Metberry Gulch (CR 205) to the rock. From Florissant it took us one hour to reach the small, turnaround loop at the back of the rock. His stock Tacoma did just fine, but we're not Jeepers, and the road was definitely a bit hair... more >>

Comments: A buddy and I were up there a couple of weeks ago, and it appears that both lines may have been chopped down low. We tried the leftmost route, but the lowest holds had been removed and the first bolt was sticking about an inch out of the wall. I had to boost my buddy on my shoulders just so he could reach the first hold. We didn't attempt the right route, but we couldn't figure out how one could even start it. The first hold was way up the pillar, and well out of reach. We figured you would need... more >>

Comments: I'm with ya now, John. Yeah, this is turning into a novel. You were definitely at the New Generation anchors, and I can see why you stopped there if you were rapping from the summit of New Era. They are pretty much directly below.

For fellow climbers - those weren't placed for retreating off of New Era. They're actually the end point of an old, seldom-climbed line. Don't use them. When rapping from the top of New Era, the better method is to just reverse New Era. It may be a bit tricky to get b... more >>

Comments: John,
No. Honestly, I wouldn't try to rap off of those anchors. They looked a bit manky to me. When I have found myself at those anchors (a couple of times after climbing the New Generation pitch as a second pitch to Diesel and Dust), I've immediately traversed over to the belay alcove at the top of New Era. This traverse isn't done on rappel. I belay from those crappy anchors and allow my partner to climb over and down into the alcove. He then puts me on belay, and I then make the unprotected t... more >>

Comments: John,
Not sure what anchors you were rapping from. If you did the third, and seldom done, third pitch of New Era, it leads to a huge horn that can be slung for rappel. I remember a few old pins along this pitch for pro but none for anchors. However, there are a couple of old pins at the top of the New Generation pitch (sometimes used as a second pitch for Diesel and Dust). These anchors consist of old pins (left one is actually two pins stacked in the hole) with webbing laced through them. These... more >>

Comments: Burly, burly, burly. The hardest move may only be .11a, but this is one of those lines that feels way harder than its grade because of the sustained nature. Once you pull the initial roof it is on, and you're fully committed on the lieback until you get into the alcove for a shakeout (that alcove is nasty). I'm completely pumped everytime I reach this point, and the hardest part is still to come above the alcove. I agree with Bosier...very pumpy.

Great route though...definitely one of my favor... more >>
