Comments: Good idea about the knee pads, Paul. For added protection, try a soccer shin guard on the left shin. After completing this climb without them, I experienced a numb shin for weeks after.

Comments: Deep Freeze in good shape, climbed it a few weeks ago. The first pitch is WI3 with good rock gear. The 2nd pitch is 30 feet of dry tooling (M5) to a exciting yet awkward chimney. Mostly good gear the whole way. On the way down my ice tool managed to work loose out of my harness and [disappear]. It is a Cork hammer with a new pick, reward if found.

Comments: I have the same problem of shin-bashing, since the heel hook is tough to hold. Hurts like hades, but anyway, I ran into John Gill (!!) of all people one time and was asking him if he'd ever done it. He too had bashed his shin and said that he used to do it with a soccer shin-guard on. I've since done it that way, too, and it's way less scary.

Comments: I climbed an ice route to the right of Womb with a View about a week ago. It was six pitches of outstanding mixed climbing, the best ice I have ever done in the park. Has anyone heard of this line ever being completed?, if so please let me know. 1,000ft, WI4+, M5.

Comments: [Climbed] Womb with a view a few days ago in the 50 degree temps. The climb became very unstable around 10:30 and began falling apart, it may not exist any longer. [Luckily], we finished the ice pitches before the sun finished them.

Comments: Didn't mean to bust your chops their Jake.I find these grading systems to be very inconsistent, so I always like to ask other climbers view on this matter.

Comments: Regardless of how long it takes you Jake, it still is not a grade III. A grade three typically consists of multiple pitches,up to seven I believe. No single pitch climb could ever be a grade III.However Mainstreet is a long & difficult pitch.

Comments: There is a great mixed line climbers right of the piller pictured below.It is all trad & a bit ran out in the start. One of the best mixed lines around the area. Bring stoppers & small cams. There is a fixed pin 12ft off the ground, this is your first piece of gear. The rest of the climb is a splitter steep crack to a ice curtian finnish. Most climbers toprope this mixed line for good reason. M-7, WI5, 3 stars.

Comments: If you keep going past the three teirs, the climbing becomes more interesting. Climb a 60ft rock face (5.5) their are two bolts on a good size boulder after the rock but seem suspect. The next pitch starts on slabby firglass to a 40 degree snow & ice field. Pitch 3 is the crux due to the lack of ice & protection. This has always been my favorite part of the climb. After this short section belay at a tree or continue up 50 or 60 feet of WI3 to a log belay. From here the climb becomes more comm... more >>

Comments: Has anyone heard of , or climbed any ice on La Platas north face? A few years ago I climbed some WI2-3/ M-4 ice and rock up the nothface of La Plata. This was an excellent undiscoverd alpine route. I also saw other potentioal ice climbs in the surrounding area.

Comments: Some a-hole took a #1 Camalot from a pre-set anchor in Uncompahgre Gorge near the lower bridge. The anchor consisted of two RPs , #1 cam and a green cordelette. Only the cam was taken. I rappelled into the gorge on a fixed line and led out toward my anchor, only to find it sabotaged. What the f #*.

Comments: I climbed the Smear in 2002 and left 3 scews 15 feet below the 3th pitch anchors. I would love to get these items back. Reward if found.

Comments: 06/21/03 This rock is pretty sweet, however there is a lot of strange 5.5-5.7 bolted climbs on the lower face. Compared to all the other climbing in this area, these are piss poor FAs. This area has good trad climbing from the 5.7-5.11 range, and I have never seen anyone there. Be aware of gunfire thoughout the surounding area.

Comments: The second pitch of this climb is also very good. I believe there was a chockstone anchor right after the crux. This pitch is only concidered about 25feet. 11a.
