Location: CO : Boulder : Boulder Canyon : Bitty Buttress : Bitty Buttress (5.8+)

Comments: If you are a granite tradmaster, you'll float up this with a smile on your face. If, like me, you are more used to sandstone and clipping bolts, here are a few thoughts on gear:

Pitch one is long! I would bring doubles from thin hands to tips, and I wished I had more large stoppers, like 3/4" to 1". I would have placed a couple of small tricams if I had them. I ran out of runners, so I set up a belay and tricked my partner into leading the run out finish of P1! I would probably bring 16 draws ... more >>

Comments: Fun route with mixed bolts and gear. We toproped a variation that starts between this and Timeless, goes up the slab to the roof, reach up to the arete and step over the roof at perhaps 5.8+, continue up the arete until you meet up with History, step left and go up the black dish a few feet left of the crux crack of History at maybe 5.10-. This could be bolted as another route but would be a bit of a squeeze job. The logical thing would be for History to finish staight up on the black scoop wi... more >>

Comments: Wow, 5.7+? I found this harder than either Classic Finger Crack (5.9) or Zolar Czakl (5.9+) today. And I am tall and was on a top rope!

Comments: As of yesterday, we did not see the two fixed wires on the traverse after the bolts mentioned by Hamlet73. I placed a #0 and a #00 C3 after the second bolt, and we felt the traverse was well-protected since I could reach the first bolt. We called P1 5.10a, both of us would say the second pitch is technically harder, maybe 10b. I got suckered into the face holds out right on P2 since the chalk stopped abruptly in the crack, DOH!

We used the Vertigo rappel anchors which worked prett... more >>

Comments: Another great route, Kirk, thanks! I really enjoyed this, especially the middle section. Our 70m rope worked fine but no extra! These long pitches are great, I'm not sure there was a solid 5.9 move, but there is a lot of climbing on this. I counted 21 clips plus the two bolt upper anchor including one clip at the intermediate anchor.


Location: CO : Boulder : Eldorado Canyon SP : Peanuts Walls : Lower Peanuts : Forbidden Planet (5.11b)

Comments: BETA WARNING! A left heel hook got me to the second bolt via the long reach to a positive small edge, and then I traversed out right on decent handholds but very thin feet. Moving up to the next four foot wide edge the edge has various better and worse places to grab it which are not obvious from below, at the right end of this horizontal it is a much more positive handhold which will also help you get on your feet on the right. I couldn't put it together today, but I will be back!
