Location: CO : Estes Park Valley : Lumpy Ridge : The Bookmark : Between The Sheets (5.11b)

Comments: This is one great route. In Malcolm's comments, he rates the first pitch at 5.11+ rather than 11b. I believe the former is more accurate. Thin, a little hard to see the placements at the crux, superlative rock, great climbing.

Comments: The key to doing this route is finding the right atmospheric conditions.Getting there early means probable cold temperatures. Getting there later, means probable lightning storms.I approached this climb three times trying both tactics and was skunked each time. The fourth time was the charm. We arrived early but it was too cold. The day was splitter so we hung out at the base until the sun hit the wall, about 1 p.m. on July 11.

However, the position of this route made up for any shortcomings the climbing had for me. The sweeping unbroken nature of this shield of rock is magnificent.

Location: CO : Alpine Rock : RMNP - Rock : Ypsilon Mountain : Blitzen Ridge (5.4)

Comments: Great route. I thought the climbing itself is worthy of perhaps two stars, but the position is magnificent. If you are comfortable soloing 5.4 climbing up and 5.0 climbing down, consider leaving the rope at home.
