Comments: The anchors have been updated with Fixe Rings, so no more worries about the sharp quicklinks.

Comments: The links on the top anchor are pretty worn and have a sharp edge. They could use an update.

Comments: Surprisingly fun route. The crux for me was clipping the bolt after the crack. I ended up climbing by the two bolts on the direct variation, but then going right to the lower anchor.

Comments: Ron, I find your suggestion pedantic and a bit hilarious. I'd recommend people strongly discount your advice on clambering across the choss strewn routes of Eldo in the hope of avoiding the chop on other routes in Eldo with loose rock. There's is always a small probability your number is going to come up and some objective hazard is going to ruin your day or end your life. I don't see how your recommendation changes that. Whatever you can learn from climbing loose rock, I suspect you can le... more >>

Comments: It's been another harsh winter in Boulder, so things that have been solid in the past probably aren't anymore. I thought I'd repost this from the conditions comments to here as a poignant reminder to be careful out there and to note that the third pitch of Green Spur is loose and best avoided.

From July 5th, 2006....

My partner and I went up to climb Yellow Spur, but since it was busy we decided to do the Green Spur instead. We both climb harder than that and have many years of climbing in El... more >>

Comments: This is a good alternative to the Culp-Busy-eh?. This past weekend there were 4 parties cued up for that route, and none for this. We did some so-so pitches to the right of the huge dihedral and then cut hard left for a full pitch to get back on the Love Route. The top few pitches of this route are outstanding.

Comments: This route appears to have been retro bolted. There's no chains or links on the anchor bolts, so you'd probably want to use the Gully Washer anchor to get down.

Comments: I don't like the idea of putting warning signs along the trails. There's just way too much dangerous stuff in Eldo to label. However, if people want to go that route, we'd need a sign at the base of Green Spur that says "Watch out for falling Craigs and rocks". Oh yeah, and one at the base of Wind Ridge that says the same thing. Come to think of it, maybe I'm the one that needs the sign.

The placement of the WI anchors is a little awkward, but I doubt if moving them would solve these lowerin... more >>

Comments: How do you propose hanging such tags?

The method I've seen which works well is to put the tags on a nylon dog collar and then put the collar on a dog with a medium build and long taill. Beagles and Blue Healers are suitable breeds. Then tie a prussik on the dog's tail and simply clip the prussik to the anchor with a locking caribiner.

Voila. :-)

Comments: Heads up for the next parties to do the full route!

A big section of rock came out of the little corner that you climb to get to the roof above Grandmother's Challenge. This is the first 5-10 feet of pitch 3 off of the red ledge after you move the belay. Although the big stuff is gone (I think), there's going to be more loose stuff in that corner, so be careful.

As for me, some of the rock fell on my leg after I decked on the ledge. Now I know how Wiley Coyote feels. My partner had to sel... more >>

Comments: There are currently 4 pins on the upper "rotten band" traverse. They are obvious if you climb high enough. If you don't see them keep going up the corner. You pass at least 2 other spots where you could go left, but shouldn't.

T1.9 is my favorite long moderate in Eldo. The traversing finger crack pitch off the upper ramp is spectacular.
