Comments: About halfway up, the crack flares inward...almost ate one of my cams. Stoppers are recommended there. There are a number of bomber passive pro placements. Take a handful of larger stoppers.

Comments: Slogged up from about five miles out on 11/1/09. The road that follows the Rio Cebolla is impassable (except by quad or snow machine), but tracks on the upper road indicate it may be possible to approach via a relatively new logging road a mile or two west of the Cebolla. A couple small aspens have fallen across the road near the trailhead so bring a chainsaw if you want to drive all the way to the TH, or face a longer approach like we did.
Falls are forming nicely but probably a month out from... more >>

Comments: Great route! Crux is just above 3rd bolt. Tenuous moves on slopy feet get you going again. Topped out to peals of thunder and rapped route to base. We made it off FR44 just before the sky opened up dumping marble-sized hail. The first rap is easy off the tree at top. Second is okay....snagging on brush a little, but got us out of there in the nick of time.

Comments: Wow! A lot of talk about ratings and not alot about El Rito! I want to note that the road is NASTY in the mud. We were up there on Easter, in the snow, and the road was a mudbog! Any precip and you'd better have a good 4-wheeler for the entire road and clearance once you head up 44B.
Go wild,
Eddy

Comments: OK...that is just retarded! The source of the falls is effluent from a waste water treatment facility located upstream in Bayo Canyon. One may recall that the ice climbs on the southwest side of Cascade Creek near Durango are also fed by effluent. There wouldn't be any tampons unless people drop them there when they discover they're in White Rock and not Ouray. I disagree with the bomb rating..in fact it's pretty fucking good for ice in White Rock. I can't help but feel the good poster dropped a... more >>

Comments: Onsight 2005-12-26. Pretty solid 5.9 over the bulge. Then cruiser yet airy and fun. 5.8- is a bit of a sandbag.

Comments: In February '06, the topout was sunhit very early, and I pulled the bulge on slush and turf sticks with no appreciable pro. Get on this one early.

Comments: Two bolts...that were missing hangers last summer. I choked the studs with micro stopper wires and then placed a couple finger-sized pieces above. I'm heading back up there tomorrow (my brother-in-law's a local) and I'll try to bring a few hangers to install on these climbs.

Comments: Very regular crack...takes #3 TCU to 0.75 Camalot. Very easy but airy and aesthetic. I think I placed five pieces.
Cheers, Eddy

Comments: Climbed Stairway's first three on Feb 10th. Started late in the afternoon and had to bail off top of third due to nightfall. Awesome plastic ice...bitchin rappel by headlamp. We want to get to the top this weekend. Anyone know what kind of shape it's in? Avi conditions seem favorable...anyone?

Comments: 3-18-07 I thought I was climbing Cold Day...folllowing directions from Beverly's guide. I started at the very toe, which the topo shows very close to Path of Charon. Then went Directissima...straight up to meet Minion at the top. a great route at 5.8+....really enjoyable and fairly long at ~135ft.

Comments: These routes, I believe are on the same wall as Ryan Nelson's classic "Riding Manon". Any idea of the ratings?....names...? Ryan, you out there?

Thanks.

Comments: Potter knew what he was doing and that, I believe, is damnable. Some of us climb "forbidden" features and in "closed" areas often. Monkey Wrench mentality is cool...even admirable (I believe Abbey is smiling). Publicizing it and then standing on some grandiose platform of climbing rights is hypocritical and destructive. Especially to those of us who pay to climb...you know....the UNsponsored masses.It was an act of arrogance to make the ascent public knowledge and, it seems to me, in direct conf... more >>
