Comments: Nice! When I did the Phase I for CCC on this property, I saw rock but didn't see the potential. Good job! If the parking on the east side is full, you could also park as for Primo and walk downstream along the old railroad bed next to the creek.

Comments: I'm pretty sure he put this in the spring he was working on his new book, but I guess I could be mistaken....

Comments: There are two newish routes to the left of the first pitch of Fire on the Mountain, both 5.10. The rightmost line is the first pitch of Fire on the Mountain....

Comments: Fun route on good rock! Definitely different beta possible as I did not use an undercling at the first bolt.

Comments: Luis,
Yes, the road is open. There are no closures due to the fires; however, there is a fire ban which affects all the free camping sites. It was not smoky last weekend, but I'm not sure about current conditions (will find out tomorrow...). Free camping can be found all along Rampart Range Rd with the site just past Mile Marker 10 being the only one you can walk to the crags (Wypeyur Buttress and the rest of the Lower West Side). Pay camping available at the Fire Tower trailhead.

Comments: Re: camping:
I'm not sure it would be considered "good", but the closest camping to Morrison is Bear Creek Lake Park - lakewood.org/bclp/.

Comments: Replaced the third bolt 2/16/13. As mentioned above, the bolt was not bent but was drilled at an angle. The rock around the bolt, however, was breaking up. See photo for before/after. Thanks to ASCA for the hardware!

Comments: Agree with Ben about the photo [Eds. now relabeled & moved]. It's of Team Anorexia (you can tell by the old hanger clipped below the climbers feet). Both guidebooks seem to have errors in this area. They do agree on Metamusso being newish and the 1st route right of Dave Dangle but show the line wrong on the topos.

Comments: ANCHORS ARE FIXED.
Updated the anchor again on 1/18/13 with s/s ASCA bolt and quicklinks. Added a short chain to right bolt to equalize. Anchor should be good to go for a while now.

Comments: Put the anchors in and TRd this same year as Crack a Cold One (but later).
Both anchor sets hand drilled (3 inch holes in granite!!) Came back a year later with A. and E. Butcher when I finally got a power drill and the lead bolts were already installed (most likely by Scott S.)
Fun slab climbing. I felt the crux was prob last 20 feet to anchors.

Comments: I cleaned this and put the anchors in years ago for something for my daugter to climb (on TR). The gear is there but tricky (i.e. sideways stoppers, small cams). I thought it was harder than 5.4 at the one move out of the crack near the anchors, but this is also one of the better protected moves (#2 Camalot if I remember), so it shouldn't matter.

Comments: Added 2 ASCA quicklinks to anchor 8/26/12. Was previously just 2 carabiners on coldshuts in a rope-twisting configuration. Biners were in good condition, so the added quicklinks make for a much smoother lower....

Comments: Anchor replaced this evening. Due to funky rock in the original location, the new anchors are about 2 ft. lower. Big thanks to ASCA for the hardware!

Comments: wow - did not feel 11a to me. I'm sure the heat had something to do with it but today it felt mid-11 or harder. Can't rate it though as I came nowhere close to sending...

Comments: Heads up! Snakes are out. Stirred up a small rattlesnake on the way down from New Hipster this evening (dusk). Right on the trail as it goes through the brush and over the shoulder near the crag. Watch out....

Comments: I tweaked the description above to add Kent's mileage to the pull-out (and remove that you can pay to park at Molly Gulch CG which isn't there anymore...).
It's been awhile since I've been back there. If anybody has any other beta (e.g. what's the current stream crossing set-up), let me know and I can update the description.

Comments: 5th and 4th bolts have been replaced. (While the 5th was the one with the rock blown out around it, after seeing how rusted it looked, I went ahead and replaced the 4th as well....)
Big thanks to ASCA for the hardware!!

Comments: Terry,
This photo seems to have been taken March 2010, and I believe shows the area you're interested in....
