Comments: Hmmm... my mistake then Lin. Looks familiar though I cannot place it.

My next best guess would Big T.

Comments: In the late 90's, along with Keen Butterworth and Jonathan Auerbach, we went in and checked these towers out and climbed Joe. But we knew this one was going to take a lot more work and had yet to make it back. Nice work getting this one guys!

Comments: Hi Andrew, I just saw your post. The route we did on the South Golden Gate, that we called "Golden Shower", is in the dihedral on the east side of the tower. 5.9 C2 - "Standard desert rack".

Comments: Paul this is actually the Golden Gate Towers. There is a north and south tower but they blend together when viewed from this angle. Did the FA of the south with Jonathan Auerbach and Randall Weekley. From what I know right now the north tower is still has not been climbed.

Comments: I just flew over this thing on the way back to Denver from San Fran, it had been awhile since I had seen it from the air... but boy, what a landform it is. Even from 32,000 feet!

So it had been awhile since I had been to this page, then I saw your very recent comment jacobi, "Top Adventure" - Yes, yes it is!

Crusher, I love your descriptions. "Above this was a talus arĂȘte, where at one point I was swimming, boulders cascading away out of the soft matrix as I paddled my arms and legs, in... more >>

Comments: Yes, I agree Sandy.

And it never occurred to me until you pointed this out... it was on this exact trip that my buds here were giving me grief about giving a hard catch. Now I see how they make them so soft.

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: Does this route start 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.
