Comments: As of this past weekend, I'd say the approach "road" Sister Superior is pretty washed out, we got maybe a 1/3 of the way in and finally turned around, hadn't planned on the two hour approach. Definitely wouldn't try any of the road in anything other than 4x4 truck with clearance.

Comments: The first two pitches of this climb were worth the hike alone. Unfortunately we didn't get a good look at the summit due to an inaccurate description in the falcon guide we had with us. Sure would have been nice to know that you're supposed to head up from the bolt on the third pitch instead of going all the way around the corner to the anchors over there. I would agree that the best belay for pitch one is off a gear anchor on the big ledge, comfy and safe, much nicer than the hanging belay a... more >>

Comments: Finally climbed this yesterday after coming off ancient art. Took a #3 up but didn't place it. Clipping the "bolt" was very insecure, especially since I didn't have any gear below it, not sure how folks under 6ft would do it. However, once you're in that finger lock just left of the bolt the holds seem to just get better and better. Very cool moves. Could use some new webbing up top, didn't have any with us, but anchor was pretty manky. Enjoy

Comments: Mike it looked like chalk, but damn who takes the time with a chalk bag to do all that defacing? Thanks for getting a clean up going.

Comments: In Greek mythology, the Elysian Fields were the final resting place of the blessed chosen by the gods. This route is well worth the bushwack, almost makes you forget your still in Flagstaff.

Comments: New anchors should be finished by this afternoon, with good chains. Thanks to Stan Mish for the use of his hand drill ( he also offered up some ole "no gud" hangers but I didn't want to scare the kiddos!) and to Chris T. for saving the day with a power drill. Who knew hand drilling in limestone could be such a pain in the ass. Enjoy

Comments: One of the best problems at BP. Start on the small corner with a small foot and to good hold on the left side of the cave entrance, reach up to a good chalked hold in the underside of the roof, hike those feet up and layback to reach the softball hold. Way cooler start then jumping. Also if you want to feel like you did a route start the traverse to the left and move into this start, careful of the pictographs.

Comments: Just a heads up as of a week or two ago that detatched pillar is about 2 feet shorter. From what I could see the detatched block that was on top of it is sitting at the bottom of the route with a big X on it. Routes not much harder, now when the rest of that detatched pillar goes...

Comments: Climbed this last week and its fantastic! Another beautiful, not contrived line. Perhaps we are seeing the dawn of a new Renaissance at West Elden. Strong work Colin and Helen, bolted on lead no less.

Comments: Anybody have any info about the route to the right of Aqualung. I followed Ti on it a few years back and remember it being thin, thin with a wierd roof move past a bolt. 5.12 range perhaps?

Comments: Maybe its finger size dependent but man this seemed harder than 11c. Proud lead for those the wander on down.

Comments: I heartily agree with JJ and Kole, this is damn hard for 10+. But is nice to climb when you're looking for more on the pillow wall.

Comments: This is definitely stout. I've only been able to lead it once, after multiple attempts with multiple falls and that was only with a fair amout of peer pressure from Dr. Dave and the Pinche and claims that the conditions were ideal for my style i.e. there was mud in the crack and water trickling down, but low and behold I fired clean.... now if only I could do that when its dry and sunny!

Comments: Just a question to Paul Davidson or anyone else that knows. Any truth to a tale I heard told that Paradise Lost was originally Davidsons Dihedral and what we call Davidsons now was actually called the "Kiney"(sp?)

Comments: This has got to be one of the best routes at the Forks. See a lot of people pulling into the left crack and straight in jamming, but man all those drop knees are way cool.

Comments: Hey Paul, thanks for the heads up, if it is the same line I apologize for dropping a bolt in it. I didn't see anything listed in that area in Tims book. Regardless its a pretty stellar climb.

Comments: This looks very similar to tip toe thru tulips, is it a diff. route up the same formation? Pretty cool if this is a diff. 3 spire formation with ruins next to it.

Comments: For my money I think this is one of the coolest problems at the Draw. Once it clicks you'll send everytime. The tree is off! I find it easier than Anorexic, but harder than Twister just to its right, also a very cool problem.
