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.

Comments: Are you sure this isn't "Pinching the Loaf"? Awesome problem.

Comments: I've heard a lot of people call this the submarine traverse. Also I'd say more in the V3ish range. Awesome problem though, something for everybody.


Location: AZ : Central Arizona : Crown King Area : King Dome
By: Dean Hoffman When: Dec 12, 2007

Comments: Only climbed here once and had a blast. Just note that the 4WD road takes you to a sweet camping spot basically on top of Kingdome, but be prepared for some of the standard desert pinstriping and rough travel. Perhaps the road has been improved but I remember being psyched we had an 85 land cruiser.

Comments: Double Dip comes up through the big boulder in the center, also wicked Mattson? problem starts farther back in the cave. Good traverse comes from Left side in, either finishing at base of Double dip, or cranking up through double dip for good pump.

Comments: Centerpeice in the Center, Commando on the right, and unknown awesome problem starting on slopers just up and left from Centerpeice start and firing to good ledge up and right, then cranking through crimps.

Comments: Great problem with multiple eliminates possible, throw off the low holds, or try crossing right hand to crimp and firing to the lip, think this might be a Mattson Problem.

Comments: Just to finish the story, when my buddy got to the top of Mayflower two guys had rapped in and cleaned my piece off the route and said not a word about the rack. Lame. Anyhow finally got back on the route this summer and fired the lead clean, using locking biners on all my gear!

Comments: Greg, to add the proverbial insult to injury after my partner and I had disengorged said carabiner from the back of my knee while still hanging from that bomber nut, soloing up that chossy 5-easy around the corner with yellowish goo coming out of my leg and hobbling to the car someone swiped my entire rack! Yup in our haste it was left atop Mayflower and when a buddy got to the ledge 45 minutes later it was vanished! Poof! Lamer than Lame!

Comments: Climbed this route recently and thought it was fantastic, while a bit heady definitely one of the most classic routes at W.E.. Definitely recomend it. Long slings, maybe a double length runner for protecting the back of the alcove.

Comments: Hey not being from Durango I'm not sure what the local standard is, but on July 7th I was climbing this route and there was a bird nest with new hatchlings just about at the third bolt. I down climbed rather than bother the chicks. Might be worth skipping this one for a little while.

Comments: So only climbed the last pitch of Cooler Than Jesus, it was hot and late we rapped in around 6:30. Anyhow I would put this at a CH4 on the above mentioned rating system. I've done Epi, and a handful of wicked chimneys in Sedona and damn this was tight. And holy crap get your runout head on cause its a doozy. I really wish I had been wearing my carhartts. Amazing setting, scenery, and solitude. Beautiful area overall, however not sure if I would take my truck up that gnar-gnar excuse for a ... more >>

Comments: Just a note about this approach, just this drive on the 5th of July, whew it was hot and I think, perhaps, the road has gotten worse. Driving a 05 Tacoma we were in for some rough driving, no major damage but there were some nervous moments. Definitely would not try this in anything other than a 4wd truck with good clearance. However the view alone was worth it all.

Comments: Had a blast on this route, caught myself laughing with my feet swinging making the ledge traverse. Can't wait to try straight up.
