Comments: Thought this was dang good Flatirons solo. Once up the lower section, I went right a little to gain the SE arete on Hillbilly itself. Great fun climbing up there with good exposure.

It does get spicy if you get off the correct path. It took a little bit for me to piece it together as the Haas guide photo seems to show going left of the SE arete, up a dihedral that looked harder/scarier.

Comments: Anyone know where this route starts exactly... to the left or right of the large pine tree there at the base?

After soloing Billy Goat Arete and the SE Arete, I couldn't nail down where the start was on the East Face Center. Description notes "just right of a left facing flake system", but there are two of these large flake systems.

Comments: Squeezed and contrived 1 star route. Kind of silly when I somehow feel that I need to try and stay off of the holds on the Good Book and Mustard Seed. I could have clipped bolts on those as well during the climbing... classic example of BoCan gone wrong.

Comments: There were probably 4 okay routes here, unfortunately the squeezing of lines on this tiny crag kind of left me with a bad taste in my mouth... see Beta Photo.

Comments: +1 Jason. One of the worst routes on one of the worst grid bolted crags in BoCan.

Comments: Thanks JA. This and a couple others here are HDR images. The final dreamy image was a combination of 5 shots on a tripod at different exposures. Fun stuff to play with. (HDR is High Dynamic Range.)

Comments: Thanks dolgio. It sounds like we were up there at about the same time then as that shot is from 08/26/2010. Maybe we even ran into you on the trail...

Comments: This photo is zoomed in a bit and seems to foreshorten the pitch and the distance between the bolts.

The first three draws are off of the old original ¼” bolts. The final move to clip each one of those seemed fairly thought provoking and about 5.9.

With those quarter inch protection bolts all now at this point being 24 years old, that certainly adds some spice factor. Oh, and then there is the awesome exposure… quite memorable to say the least.

Comments: Come on… is that just a troll Tristin? Well, at least you actually use your real name to troll and flame. But please, next time read MtnProj Guideline #1: don't be a jerk?

Does this really sound like a good way start a productive conversation on the number of bolts on a “5.0 pitch”?
Whatever. This is public land and this is a public forum I'll say whatever I damn well please about it.” So… so there!

Not long ago Tristen you complained about too many bolts on Pygmy Alien, a 5... more >>

Comments: We liked this challenging Eldo 5.9 and the "big suprise" at the end... it's worthy. And if the slings are good, the rap anchor through the tunnel is bomb. Much better than the Rush Buick anchor.

Comments: Excellent solo on clean aid 03/17/07. Careful of those bolts on pitch 1! It would be wacky to try and free past these... even if it was only 5.9. And 5.8 for the last pitch?! Glad I had the #5 Camalot. Whoever does this tower next, please bring a register book and some pencils/pens. The summit register ammo box is great. But the 1 pencil and 1 pen are fried and there are only a couple of blank sheets of paper as the register. Note that the original register is still there but VERY V... more >>

Comments: Excellent job by Paul & Layne on this. It's fun, mostly easy, runout, and fairly adventurous... and what views! Wowza, purty dang fun! DBC seems to be the best looking and most prominent line of all the Reef climbs. If approaching from the East on I-70, you can see DBC before you even get to Green River.

The hike in is cool with some short narrows in the bottom of the approach canyon. After recent rains you may even have a couple of wades here though the pools should only be waste deep max... more >>
