Location: CO : Golden : Clear Creek Canyon : The Bunker : Apoca-Lips Now! (5.13b)

Comments: Great route for aspiring punk gym rats and wannabe thugs. Big holds and campusy moves make this one a fun one. I would say it's worth the 15 minute, steep, hillside hike up just to this route. Get her done....

Comments: Amazing route that is the real dope Shinto! Huge moves between huge holds is an understatement. Don't fear though, with some foot trickery and intermediate small holds between the giant ones, vertically challenged people can do this fairly easily. Huge fun and a must do for tensleep thugs....

Comments: About as long as a single pitch climb gets. 70 and 80 meter ropes will NOT get you to the ground so plan accordingly....

Comments: Very long and fun route. Rock is a bit muddy looking but otherwise a great climb. The climb could be as soft as 11b/c so if your not quite a 5.12 climber, this could be a great first. I had fun on this one.....

Comments: Agreed with the person posting this. First 3 bolts are kind of out of the way and difficult to clip. I recommend climbing through the 2nd being stick clipped. It will make for a more enjoyable outing. Ladder of two fingers up high is money$$$!

Comments: Great route for sure and a great warmup for the harder lines in the area. Pumpy with lots of rests...

Comments: Too bad this line wasn't left as a boulder problem which would have made for a fun highball. With a little bit of work, the base could be made perfectly flat, and several pads would have made for a perfect and safe landing. Fun mantel move to finish.


Location: CO : Estes Park Valley : CO Hwy 7 & Tributaries : The Crags : Crosswinds : Grippin' the Cutlass (5.12c)

Comments: Fantastic route with a brilliant, sustained upper headwall on small but positive holds when the wall steepens. Be sure to take in the views of Long's Peak at 3/4 height with a no hands rest with your back to the wall, conveniently right before the hard upper bits....


Location: CO : Boulder : Flatirons : South : Overhang Rock : Ouroboros (5.12d)
By: Curt MacNeill When: Jul 29, 2015

Comments: Overhang delivers again with yet another stellar route that goes all the way to the top. I'm guessing it's 45 meters long, and I used an 80 meter rope which I was able to lower straight to the ground from the very top. As the route cleans up, it's just going to get better and better. Easier moves than both its neighbors and pretty good rests all over the place. A bit airy on lead with some climbing that keeps you guessing where to go. Fantastic!

Comments: Agreed with Matt Lloyd on this. A one move wonder for sure, and that move is a BITCH. May require a bit more finger strength than most 12d's to pull the crux. Even though it's only one move, that single move may be the hardest I have ever encountered on a 5.12, so prepare to be humbled....


Location: CO : Boulder : Upper Dream Canyon : Lost Angel : Earth Voyage (5.12a)
By: Curt MacNeill When: Jul 16, 2015

Comments: Agreed. Incredibly sustained with lots of tricks on this one. It's a delicate climb that requires some finesse. I reckon this entire climb could be done in one mega pitch by using an 80 meter rope, skipping lots of bolts, and having super long runners. Not sure if anyone has ever done it that way. Next level, game on....

Comments: Absolutely fantastic route! I have done a very large number of 13a's in Colorado, and this is surely up there with the best of them. Uber thug fest down low on jugs leads to a technical pull onto a face. A good rest awaits after the crux, a back stem where you can go no hands, then some cool 12b climbing to the top. Bottom reminded me of the classic Sonic Youth in Clear Creek Canyon, the top of Psychotomic at the Monastary. Bottom line, drop whatever your doing, drive to Independence Pass, and d... more >>

Comments: Great to see you on here, Mr. Sparrow. Great route with fun and interesting movement, multiple cruxes separated by great rests and a pretty cool hang and position. Four stars for sure. In the summer, the route goes into the shade about 1:00 o clock which is important. Expect a sunburn and some lack of motivation if you go up in the morning as it can get real hot....


Location: CO : Independence Pass : Outrageous Overhangs Area : Olympic Wall : I've Got Skills (5.12a)

Comments: Ditto. Solid at the grade. Doesn't appear to see much traffic as there was a bunch of choss I broke off and the route was really dirty. After a bit of cleaning, the route turned into a masterpiece. This route is in dire need of a bolt upgrade. You may find the route a bit old school, both in climbing and bolt spacing, but it's a good one for sure. If you're not very solid at the grade, I would bring a cam for the middle section which is runout but easy climbing....

Location: CO : Boulder : Flatirons : South : The Slab : Prime the Pump (5.12c)
By: Curt MacNeill When: Mar 29, 2015

Comments: Agreed with Matt with the suggested 12c rating. If you're short, you have to do kind of a sideways pogo stick move at the crux which can be unpleasant. Great long jug haul though. It can easily be done in a single pitch with some long draws and some unclipping shenanigans....

Comments: Great route. One of the best of the grade in the Flatirons sport climbing mecca. If it's hot, the section from last bolt to the top may feel harder....

Comments: This line could be the coolest route I have done at the Red. Very, very long with a wide diversity of movement and holds. Hard sections, no hands rests, every type of hold you could ever want. Climbs all the way to the top of the wall with amazing views from the upper hueco of the entire chocolate factory. So freaking good!!!

Comments: If you could give a route a 6th star at the Red to set it apart and give it some distinction from the other classics, this is the one. There is a reason this is the most viewed route on the Red River Climbing website. It is hyper classic status. Brilliant and powerful opening moves leads to a decent shake, then some easier but fun fluff climbing through the middle to a very cool pocket sequence near the top. From the pocket redpoint crux, slam a jug and finish on hero holds climbing to the top. ... more >>


Location: KY : Red River Gorge : Pendergrass-Murray Recreati... : The Gallery : Mosaic (5.12c)
By: Curt MacNeill When: Mar 22, 2015

Comments: Great route. Agreed with the 4 star status in the guidbook. Super good, maybe not quite as good as some of the 5 star classics in other areas of the Gorge. Very juggy and positive holds for the first half give you a little bit of a punp, then the route abrubtly shifts to smaller holds and longer pulls. Overall, a great route and one of the classics of the Gallery for sure.....
