Comments: Moving the refrigerator. Sit start on No Laughing Matter, and traverse right until you reach the undercling for going up Mr.Wiggles. Then top out!

Comments: For an added challenge, sit start this one, and climb into Mr.Wiggles. Knee scumming, compression, and lots of slapping make for a riot! I'd venture V5ish, so far I call it Moving the Refrigerator.

Comments: I cleaned and climbed this one in the Summer of 2014 but waited to submit until today. Time for everything.

Comments: Nice send! I was playing with this over the weekend and found it damn hard. I was thinking of starting at the two "slimpers" below the large ledge...didn't get it, but I'll be back for it. Fresh finger skin is a prerequisite!

Comments: Huge shout out to those who came up on Sunday to clean graffiti at the Dark Side in Morrison. I spoke briefly with Chris S. who advised it was all part of a mentoring program for younger climbers. Your efforts are appreciated, and we are all very thankful for the time all of you put in!

Comments: Went up and climbed all three on Saturday. Nice bit of rock here with sustained routes. None would be suitable for a beginner 5.10 leader, as all are pretty engaging throughout! Nice job!

Comments: We did this on Friday, and thought it was really fun. The upper "headwall" was a nice cruise on good holds. Nice addition!

Comments: Thanks Andy...I was curious about this and went out and worked it on 7/19. There is a sit start at an inverted, triangular hold that allows for a long right hand to a half pad 4-finger edge up and right. More difficulty ensues as you work the left avoiding all lip T. holds, bump right hand to a slightly better hold, bring the left up and left to a tiny crimp, and go again to the lip with the left to finish up on the traverse. Felt harder than V9, so once I can link it, I'll be stoked! Still glad... more >>

Comments: I'm curious what the problem that starts on the low Cave problem start but comes out to the lip up and left. You can see in this picture to the climber's left.

Comments: Fun line with lots of chickenheads, interesting movement on small face holds, an undercling, a layback, and a mantle. Nice pitch!

Comments: I can remember seeing a photo of Taras Skibicky in a Chouinard catalogue climbing this when I was a kid. I then met him at Morrison some afternoona year or so later, and was able to boulder with him. I credit that photo of this line for providing inspiration to a 14-year kid in Denver! All he had to say about it was " Yeah, it was pretty hard!"

Comments: Recommended to have your belayer tether themselves to the tree with a 10-12' runner, in order to be able to see the leader throughout the first pitch. On Sunday, I fell at the second to last bolt, and ended up taking a 30+ foot whipper due to 1) miscommunication, 2) the belayer assuming I was pulling rope for a clip, and 3) the belayer not seeing that I was going up and down on the same move several times. Ended up bruising my foot severely, hobbling down the hill, and across the river!
