Comments: Thanks, Colin. Yes, I did the 2nd ascent on 10-10-97. Alex Honnold and Chris Weidner also both did the route in 2008. Tommy did it some time earlier.

Comments: Seems some people take .12d here on MP, and .13a on their 8a scorecard...hmmmm. I generally don't like these finicky kind of routes, but this is one of the better routes in BoCan. The handholds are quite good, but my left big toe got really pumped. I'm going with solid 12d or soft 13a...but I'm takin' 12d on the scorecard ;-)

Comments: CJMD stands for Chris (Hill) and Jimmy (Surette) Makin' Ducats...which was a joke, since they were painting houses at the time....

Comments: Better than it looks, not as contrived as it looks, more independent than it looks...lots of quality movement in a small package; clearly, the corner should not be used...and it's not really that tempting...it's hard enough to get pumped in BoCan as it is. Full Disclosure: Chris is a friend of mine.

Comments: With a little bit of 4th classing (20ft or so), a 70m cord, and long slings you can do the whole thing in one long pitch....

Comments: Seemed more like .13c when I did it a long time ago...maybe it's broken...or JStar is short...and afraid of Rifle...;-)

Comments: Onsight and hanging the draws it felt closer to 12d to me (I can't really climb slabs anymore - too much time in the gym - so I had to try a little). Though not very hard, it's sort of challenging to put the puzzle together onsight. The final slab is desperate: no chalk, licheny, and I had to use my feet - thought I might blow it there! A little scary getting to the 1st bolt too...good route for BoCan.

Comments: Karin and I did P1 of Psychosis to the belay at the start of the crack on P2 of 3 Old Farts. I thought P1 was safe - 1.5F behind the undercling flake at the .10- crux, looked like it would stay, especially since you're toproping the move - rest of pitch is typical Eldo. We then did P2 of Old Farts directly into Psychosis P3 in one long pitch. The steep part at the bottom of Psychosis P3 - I think it get's .11a - was way easier - no joke, I'm thinking 5.9 - as long as you don't try to crack c... more >>

Comments: It was a long time ago, but I think we originally graded it .12b

Comments: I should add that Dave Pegg actually added the bolts (within the Rifle permit process); Andy just warmed up on it one day for the FA

Comments: Only goes about 15 feet further; not as hard as the lower crux, but harder than the rest of the route. The extended climbing is not that great, but really adds to the quality of the route. Having done the short version a couple of times over the years, I managed the extended route 2nd try; so I'm guessing soft .13c or something. Thanks to Andy for finally correcting something that needed to be fixed a long time ago - now one of the best hot weather routes in the canyon.

Comments: I may be blind, but the flake for the #2 Camalot may be gone. I also didn't find anything I liked at the end of the traverse before the first bolt - a bunch of marginal rock and expanding flakes - big runouts when you won't hit something are fun, but I personally didn't like this section. For the upper traverse left, if you want, you can get a #2 steel nut, #3/4 RP, AND a small Alien (I don't have Aliens, so I used a tipped purple TCU; all are good) - you don't real... more >>

Comments: Changed my mind; some of the holds that were there in 1996 aren't there anymore.

Comments: What's with the lame description? This is actually a pretty good route.

Comments: Yes, this is how the FA was done. The scramble is just down from the start of Tunnel Vision - a crack in a slab with a small tree (there used to be a sling to grab). Then circle around until you are at the notch at the start of Tracktion p2 (note correct spelling).
