Comments: A beautiful day to climb mystery of the desert. This climb is a lot of fun with some interesting challenges. On P1 I used the first 3 bolts of "tour buses welcome" and traversed left back to the corner and that is a good way to do this pitch. I did not run the 2nd pitch with this, but this can be easily done. The little overhang on P2 was fun. Now squaring off with the wedge ! This was pretty straight forward up to the second clip. Now it gets tough. When I finally figured it out it was no... more >>

Comments: I guess since nobody has updated this.. Devils chair has fallen over. I heard rumor of vandalism, but I can't verify that. It may well have been natural erosion. I knew this when I posted the side view picture on the main page from the 70's.

Comments: The Fisher Towers is an fantastic place. Well worth a visit on it's own. To go there and get to stand on top of Ancient Art is really cool. Yes, the towers are made of mud. It is a bit unnerving climbing on this type of rock. I used a point or two of aid.

Comments: I had climbed up and clipped the bolt while waiting on the group ahead. Later I headed up with out the rack. Coming to my first spot for a gear placement, I realized I had no gear. Now about 25 feet above the belay ledge I hung off a knob and lowered the rope to retrieve the rack.

Comments: This has probably been the first rock climbing experience for thousands of Minnesotans. Those who travel to Taylors Falls, Mn. can find Sonny & Juanita in the Interstate Park on the Minnesota side of the St Croix river. There is a great rapid there for Kayaking, and canoe rentals and shuttles.

Comments: Climbed it in 2000, I thought that just getting off the ground for the first 15 ft was perhaps the crux. Pretty well bolted for a stone route.

Comments: We were at Tahquitz in late june before the fires and looked at this line and decided to try it. It starts with a thin inside corner then the crack through the bulge. I was leading the first pitch, in the crux and was pulling rope for the clip, I put a bite in my mouth to get more rope and I snaped my front tooth out. I watched as it bounced down the climb, hit the slab and rolled down the mountain. It was a new cap. Later as we were heading back to Lunch rock, we stopped for a minute and on... more >>

Comments: I just climbed this again after 13 years. Much easier route finding this time. Prefect weather, and a good partner allowed for maxium fun. I recommend staying at the moriane camp if not doing this Car to Car.

Comments: Climbed by solo in 2008. The scramble to the col very loose. Ledges up and right to the west side. I took a narrow chimney to the slab finish. I down climbed a crack just to the left which was definitely a little more tricky. You can sit on top and take in the entire cirque, really awesome. Sitting on that small summit is exposed and exciting.

Comments: I just climbed this for the 4th time and finally did the 3rd pitch 5.9 varation. I found that you can sew this up with cams, very little risk to make the crux move to clip the bolt. I just love this climb.

Comments: Purblind Pillar is another great Red Rocks gem. This takes a proud line up the higest point on the Angelfood Wall. I liked the mixture of crack, chimney and face climbing. Considering all the white rock it's cleaned up quite nicely and is pretty solid. It takes a little route finding skill and that adds to the adventure. I really liked pitch 2, this has to be the best on the climb. The bolt on pitch 3 actually makes you think that you should go straight up instead of continuing a rightward... more >>

Comments: If you are at the Grand Canyon and don't mind some Hiking you will love this. Hike down the Kibab Trail until you are even with the tower and head overland. The Tower is Supai sandstone so it's pretty soft. But for GC this is a an awesome climb. Good pro with cams to 3', we had 2 ropes for the rap but I think a 70 would work.

Comments: Another great slab climb. No rests on this one it's sustained. But nicely bolted. I think this climb, ultraman, head case, white slab and lotta balls offer a great education in slab climbing in the 5.8 range in RR.

Comments: I led this on a nice fall morning. I found a full on pump by the time I reached the p1 belay. Great gear but a tricky lead.

Comments: This climbs the amazing green wall just left of pleasant overhangs. It follows a obvious corner from top to bottom. The first pitch, has 3 crack corners to choose from, I took the middle one, to a big ledge. The second pitch is what this climb is all about. It is airy and spectacular, The rock is excellent. It uses a lot of smaller gear even though the crack is quite large. The last pitch is just a top out. Much fun.

Comments: This route goes up left of Great white way. Start on left side of apron, up to bolted anchor below the navel. I think working around this navel and left is the tricky part. The runouts are big, but is is stone mountain. I climbed it in 2000 so my memory is not that good.

Comments: Climbed with Joe Ebert of Boulder on April 21st. Practically tee shirt weather in April. Perfect day. Great view all day of RMNP. Beautiful climbing, I found the 5.9 bulge the crux. Much harder than the steming crux. We climbed to the top and descended the regular gully.
