Comments: Fun Fun Fun !!! no complaints here ran out the first pitch 5.6 the second pitch the thin crack but very well protected in my [opinion] and little exposure [considering] how much air's under your toes. Wouldn't do on the weekend though, very crowded route, [considering there is] sooooo much else to do at Lumpy in the this range and quality.

Comments: A much more moderate route it definitely put a smile on my face. Until the walk off in my rock shoes. All in all unless you ware your shoes like sunday slippers. I recommend bringin a pair to hike down with. Enjoy... for the alpine bunch this would be a fun route to do with mountaineering boots for practice. Peace, Love, and Chicken Grease !!!

Comments: I funky climb the first half the Chimney I would concider easy except a fall before the bolt would be bad but easily very well protected. The upper half is a streous squeeze/ dihederal very weird to intoductory crack climber. All in all a fun route.

Comments: A must, must do a crack climb that even a face climber like I felt comfortable a wonderful intro to the Voo. A wonderful first lead for a confident climber. I almost do EC every time I go to the Voo. Enjoy!!!

Comments: One of the best routes on the rock !!!

P1 -Run it long to the bolted belay. You get a great view (aka photo op.) of P2. 5.7 except 2 moves before the tree. The crack gets thin more a of a face move but easily protected.

P2 - A sweet over hanging roof traverse. (watch out for the bat guano') A #2 friend plugs perfectly for the crux the moves to easier ground. ENJOY!

Comments: Ol' Otto you one crazy REDNECK! any ways did the route [Memorial] Weekend 04. I have to say the route was the easiest "5.8ish" [I've] ever done. Compared to the Durrance on DT which is 5.7ish this is a walk in the park. Little exposure, Monster "HOLES" some how perfectly placed.. Rapping down and a family of 5 having a picnic after time tunnel. All other aside in 1911 on the last pitch wearing cowboy boots with a [chisel] and hand drill in the other hand I must say Otto you one crazy REDNECK!

Comments: First route ever in Rifle Park, so was very pleased to find so many great features for a 5.9ish route (for a slab climber). The crux can almost be missed by a taller person. Great route and not too greasy compared to other counterparts in the park.
