Comments: Thanks a bunch to whoever took the effort to rebolt this rig. The route is amazing and now with some bomber new hardware is sure to be hyper classic at Shelf....

Comments: Cool roof move to good face climbing in a flaring crack. Overall, pretty good!

Comments: I agree with Pinklebear. I think the FA party envisioned climbing the arete, but there ended up being an easier way up the face to the right of the bolt line. With that said, the crux for me was actually reaching the bolts to clip draws. Hanging the draws for me and sending was completely out of the question, I was nowhere near being able to reach. I actually had to extend a bunch of draws and ended up skipping some on redpoint, because I could barely reach the extendos I had set up. Clearly for... more >>

Comments: Bummer to see this go in. Oceanic Wall is one of the best walls in all of Upper Dream if not all of Boulder Canyon. Sad to see a bunch of new bolts that seem to be a major squeeze job between all the other classic routes. There are also 4 new bolts that popped up recently just to the right of Challenges of Leisure which seem to link into some of the other routes. It doesn't appear that the route was even cleaned, and it looks like its covered in lichen. Please people, I'm not one to bitch, but p... more >>

Comments: Great route! Crux start, crux finish, pumpy through the middle with creative rests including multiple kneebars if you want to do them. Comparable in difficulty to Anarchitect, instead of powerful moves between slopers, it is techy and thin with lots of crimps. Do it and smile. Eagles soaring overhead make this route even sweeter. Unless they poop on your head of course....

Comments: Classic. Hard to believe that this line just went in recently. When lowering from the anchors of the 5.10 next to it, there had always been an obvious line here for viewing as you lower. Bullet hard stone, cool little crimps and grips with a fun crux sequence. Really great route and thanks for the new addition to an already fantastic crag!

Comments: Wow, this route is really fun. I had for some reason or another overlooked this route even though I wanted to do it years ago. Great flowly climbing on mostly jugs to a really fun finish and huge whip potential. Sack up and take the whip, it's really exciting with stellar position. I'm just plain impressed.

Comments: Great route and thanks for bolting it, it's a great addition to the sport climbing in the Front Range. Very techy foot smears in the summer are really fun. Give yourself 12d if you can manage to keep your feet on the rock in the intense summer heat, 13a if you can do the route after 3 pm in July when the sun has been baking on it, 13d if you can do it in Reebok Pumps, and 14a if you can do it in Air Jordan's. Michael is the man, LeBron ain't got $hi% on Jordan, and to add to all the people bi$%i... more >>

Comments: Great route. Needs a power washing with lots of sand and dirt in the pockets. Great addition to the wall though and should clean up nicely...

Comments: This line is literally one of the best routes I have done in Colorado. Huge, gorilla swinging style between horizontal slashes, the rock was reminiscent of the smooth stone found at the New and climbed a lot like the classic route Cell Block Six at the Red River Gorge. Huge moves that get a bit dynamic with powerful and flowy sequences, this route is hyper classic. I am just plain impressed. DO THIS ROUTE!!!

Comments: Perhaps one of the best routes I have done at Shelf. Felt worlds easier than Surreal Estate, Sparkle in the Rain, or Ejection Seat. Once you know what to do it was pretty chill. Props for an onsight of this route as its fairly tricky at the crux. Amazing! I can't believe I walked past this thing for the last 4 years and never once stopped to try it....

Comments: Whats both crazy and alluring about this route is both its location and beauty. It's not the Motherlode and its certainly not steep, but I got to tell you..... It's THE best route I have done at the Red. The funny thing is its a bit out of character. It's nor steep and more techy face climbing. It is AWESOME! Do it and you will be sure to smile....

Comments: This route is just plain awesome. As I am climbing more and more in the Flatirons, I am realizing there are more and more gems hidden in the plethora of rock formations. This is another one of those ultra classics and probably hasn't seen very many ascents. My buddy Joe Huggins told me an interesting story of the famed Patrick Edlinger onsighting this route, then downclimbing it right before he won the first World Cup Climbing Competition at Snowbird, Utah. At the time, he was the Chris Sharma o... more >>

Comments: What a great route! So polar opposite of its neighbor, Choose Life, it's hard to compare. Very bouldery moves with the crux coming quickly after the knee bar rest at bolt 3. Once you're through the crux, the route stays with you all the way to the top, with a great spot to shake out halfway up on the toilet bowl feature. Lots of body tensiony moves on this one with some bad holds. Other than the "heart"-shaped feature at mid-height, I don't think there is a single jug on this beast. Great route.... more >>

Comments: Great route. I had fun on this thing. Hard not to take the easy way up after 5th bolt. Not gonna lie, kind of a hard boulder problem sequence for the grade. Supposedly a "key" hold has broke at the crux. Interested to see what people think it is now....

Comments: Well said, Matt! With a little over a year and a lot of effort, I finally sent. The experience I had will stick with me forever. I shed blood, sweat, and tears on this route, and clipping chains on this beast was truly one of the proudest accomplishments of my entire life. Thanks for putting in such a proud line, your vision, your words of wisdom, and the unforgettable year long experience you gave me while I worked it. I will never forget it....

Comments: This route should have never been put in. I mean, seriously! This little section of the wall is a complete shit show with the amount of bolts and the amount of lines. There should have been Amazing face, Meteor Roadblock, and Super Bon Bon...and that's it. All of these bolts 6 inches apart from each other seriously takes away from the existing independent lines which actually climb quite nice rock with cool movements. 'Tis a shame. Can't say I agree with this style of bolting at all....

Comments: So sad this line. It actually has cool powerful movement right off the deck. However the squeeze job of bolts all around it and the manufactured jug just kind of makes it a joke. I mean, every time I climb it I have fun. I guess you just have to laugh sometimes. It seems as though the person who bolted this sector really wanted to practice putting bolts in, 'cause there everywhere. If this was an independent line with no bolts to the right or left, minus the manufactured jug, it may have been an... more >>

Comments: This route just climbs weird. I recommend doing Super Bon Bon or Amazing Face in this sector. This one to me is questionable if it's worth doing.

Comments: Hey Kirk. Yeah, I figured you envisioned people climbing "in" the scoop and people ended up climbing more on the arete. At this point, most people are just clipping the last bolt and not even touching the anchors. Regardless, a great route! Thanks for putting it up. Well done....
