Comments: This is a great line and a great find by Kevin. An interesting crux and fun movement on surprisingly good holds makes you wish it did not finish so quickly. The only reason I don't give it a classic status is due to my preference for long routes, and it is too short for me. For others, it will be one of the best of its difficulty in the canyon. Good eye, Kevin.

Comments: Great movement throughout the crux pitch, which has a hard to read crux followed by an excellent finish. Hard to rate being on it only once, and it may be easier than 12a if you know the sequence at the crux, but I am sticking to 12a until the next time - there will be a next time. The last pitch still has some loose holds.

Comments: The official regulation is that you can only boulder or rock climb in designated areas, and Horsetooth Rock is not a designated area.

Link to Larimer Parks areas where rock climbing is allowed.
larimer.org/olmasterplan/ch4_%...

Note that the bouldering is Horsetooth Reservoir County Park and the rock is Horsetooth Mountain Open Space.

Comments: There is a problem that starts with the sit down to Big Block then goes left to the arete and up the arete. It is fantastic, and I think it deserves classic status, but I don't know the name. If you are looking for a new problem at Carter, this is one to try.

Edit: I am told that it is called Face Wipe.

Comments: I combined the last pitch of Buried Treasure with the last pitch of Staying Alive, which resulted in much rope drag. However, this does make for a long and enjoyable pitch, just make sure you have several long runners and consider back cleaning or skipping some bolts.

Comments: The first pitch is great. There is a flake at the end of the harder climbing that is loose and will probably break in the near future. It is a great hold and is obviously used by many, so I wanted to give a heads up. It can be avoided by underclingling instead. The second pitch is not worth the effort.

Comments: This problem broke once again some time during the summer of 2014. The new break is the crimp at the second crux right next to the old break. This sequence has gotten much harder and will make the already pumpy problem that much more so. I was able to work out new beta but did not put it all together yet, so I am not sure if a grade change is appropriate. Since it is getting V8- consistently, and I am sure that it is not going to be V9, I would say V8 would be in the right ballpark.

Comments: After finishing the crux on a sidepull that one wishes was just a little better, you are rewarded with some great face climbing to finish. Great addition to the area.

Comments: There are two sections of poor rock quality on this climb. One right before the crux (I broke a hold and took a ride) and one right after the crux.

Comments: A fun route with a very thin crux. Bring your edging shoes. I found this harder than some of the other 10a-10c's on the wall but just for the one very well-protected move.

Comments: Finger Ripper is to the right and is an eliminate. You cannot use the crack and have to go up the face on tiny crimps and sidepulls. You can see the chalked holds in the picture: the two chalked sidepulls to the right of the climber and the two chalked crimps below and in between the chalked sidepulls. Basically the face between the climber in the photo and the crack to the right.

Comments: The "dirt fall" would be considered second class. Fourth class is when people start to rope up.
