Comments: Hi! We left a stuck X4 .75 (green) cam 6/28 and came back in the AM and it was gone. It was around pitch 4. If you got it unstuck, I would love to buy you beer or food, email nina.friedman@coloradocollege.edu

Comments: Whoa...what an adventure. Did this with Victor Dunphy on Jul. 18, 2015. The route feels very alpine, lots of bushwhacking, routefinding, and not much straightforward climbing. It felt about 5.9+ for these reasons, plus loose rock and gear far between.
We split the first pitch into two because of rope drag, and belayed off a ledge half a rope length up, which I recommend. Pitch two was the crux, though I felt the lower half was much more difficult than the upper half. The number four is really o... more >>

Comments: There is a very, very stuck .4 Camalot x4 on pitch 4 as of today (3/16/15). If anyone manages to get it out it's mine! Gimme a call! 3106008347. I'll buy you a beer!

Comments: Long shot...but about three weeks ago I participated in a rescue at Turkey Perch and in the hullabaloo may have left a harness, PAC, belay device, and some biners up there. Any chance someone picked it up? I'd be incredibly grateful! PM me and I can ID the gear.

Comments: Just got back from Turkey Rocks - great place. As for the road: we made it all the way to the main parking area in a Honda Odyssey just fine. A little bumpy and sometimes a bit sketchy, but if you look around, there's a way to make it through everything with no problems. If it's wet though, don't expect to make it.

Comments: This route is scary. No questions. Second to third bolt is super run out. Really fun, but be sure you can climb 5.9 until the top. (I only climbed the first pitch.)

But that's not the scary part. I climbed this route today and could not for the life of me find the two anchors at the top. I ended up traversing right to the next route and rapping off a single bolt (which was bomber, but one bolt is never recommended). Sketchy. Would've been fun if it was more protected.
