Dig Dug


Location: CO : Fort Collins : Carter Lake : Fromunda Boulder : Fromunda (V6)

Comments: As I understand it, the V6 starts on the "west" side of the boulder and climbs from under the boulder to the topout shown in the picture. Hard in my humble opinion. Have never done it, so will not comment on the true grade.

Comments: This problem is contrived to stay at around V6. There is a huge crack to the right, which has become the standard start. Above where the crack ends is a huge right hand slot, which is not considered "on". Using this slot knocks a couple of V grades off the problem (probably V4), and allows one to avoid the best moves on the problem. For full value, don't use the large crack on the right either.

Comments: The starting flake to this problem fell off, so it no longer exists.

Comments: Closer to 40 feet than 75 feet. Huge wedged block that can result in some interesting moves through the steepest section.

Comments: This picture, while good, does not capture how steep this problem really is. Much steeper than it looks in this picture.

Comments: This route would be deserving of another star or two if there was one more bolt near the end. As it is, it is a little confusing why an otherwise well protected route would have such a runout where a broken or wet hold might result in a very nasty fall.

Comments: The rock is a little friable in places, but the movement is great. The moves to the flake are hard to read. If a crucial foot hold or crimp breaks, this route will become much more difficult. The upper slab is very thin and hard. In my opinion, much harder than the lower section, but it was in direct sunlight.

Comments: This is currently not the rightmost route on the Overhung Wall; it is the second from the right. There is a hard move at the start, and a stick clip is very useful.

Comments: The second to last bolt needs to be replaced. The bolt is sticking out of the rock about 1/4 of an inch.

Comments: Can get very slick when in the sun between the second and third bolt. Good route with fun climbing to the anchors.

Comments: Maybe it was the specific day I was on this route, but I found it much harder than 12a compared to the other 12a's and 12b's in the area. Harder than Animal Riots Activist; harder than the second pitch of Global Gorilla, little harder than Piles of Trials, much harder than Days of Future Passed (which might not be 12a). Maybe I'll change my mind on the grade after a second go, but for now I sticking with harder than 12a, and a hard 12b.

Comments: This route now has six bolts and a two bolt anchor.

The crux involves a hard to see hold at the very top. Careful getting to the last bolt, and I would advise not taking too many falls with the rope running on the edge of the roof.

Comments: Bob D'Antonio's new guide shows the line in the wrong spot. There is a line going up where Bob's book indicates, but it is not worth climbing. Most of the bolts on the line to the right of Adam's Arete has been removed.

Comments: The "sweet variation" avoids the offwidth at the top, and is just fun, easy hand jams. It would be a great route if it was longer.

Comments: There are bolt anchors and one can get down with a 70 meter rope. Great climbing with hands, offwidth, and several interesting sections. I would agree with the grade of 9+, but if you are not used to Vedauwoo and don't look around, then it will feel harder.

Comments: I traverse much lower than shown in the picture, all the way to where the horizontal ends.

A couple of hard moves protected by the bolt, then sustained, but easier, to the top.

Comments: Great climb. Basically a good boulder problem to a jug, clip a bolt, and repeat. Since the route overhangs, a complete rest at the jugs is not possible. Furthermore, fun climbing without a single bad section until the anchor.

Edit: Found a no hands "rest" about half way up. Allows one to de-pump, but may take too much core strength to call it a rest.

Great job on these guides.

Comments: I found the upper crux to be quite hard in the hot November sun (it was pretty warm). Cool conditions helps on this climb.

Comments: It is a long route (100 feet), but the rock quality is so bad that I was fearful of pulling down many of the holds. I don't know if it will every clean up to the point that it is worth climbing. Hard to rate since I was not willing to use some of the bigger holds in a couple sections, and the rating will vary depending on what holds you are willing to use.

Comments: There is an OLD #3 Camalot (dual stem) and a green Alien stuck right before the crux on pitch 4. The Camalot is pretty stuck and it looks like many people have tried to remove the Alien. A #2 Camalot will fit well above the old stuck #3.

Comments: I never did this route, so I cannot comment on what I believe the rating should be. However, it was rated 12a/b in the Chad Watkins and Tom Hancock guide. Have people found an easier sequence or was this route just that over rated?
