Comments: Beware loose rock on left block 3/4 way's up. Maybe better to stay right on crimps than awkwardly mantle flat block avoiding good but loose holds? this could use some cleaning for sure but a good pitch.

Comments: I'll be in Aspen this week, thinking of staying the weekend, anyone have an opinion on whether this is safe to work sans spotters with 2 pads? I plan on falling a lot before this is doable.

Comments: There is a rt hand crimp to gain the final topout moves (allowing you to bring left hand into the upper rt part of the large hueco. I'd never seen it before, it's 1/2 pad 3 fingers, but it seems to really make the moves easier. Wondering if this is a new feature?

Comments: Is the chalky rail system about 3-4 feet left of the bolts (and the crack just left of the bolt line) on, or are you only supposed to use the thin crack just next to the bolts? I either really lucked out with the sequence or used a whole slew of holds that weren't on.

Comments: Curious if I did "the line" or some variation? Though if this is a variation, then the line seems contrived, but given previous descriptions, it's unclear.

I started down low on a small left hand crimp and rt hand on a large flat hold, moved up to the higher of two small but nice crimpers first, then the lower (these are still low, maybe 4-5 feet off the ground), shifted feet and went up to the very small crimps (crux?), also to the higher first then other hand to the lower... and then out ... more >>

Comments: This is a fun route, the book gives it 11a/b, which may be the first few moves off of the ledge, but that's even a stretch, and you can rest all over this thing. I'm no sandbagger, but I'd honestly give it 10b/c. Harder, obviously if climbing cracks is foreign to you.

Watch for loose rock, a baseball-sized chunk fell out while I was on it.

Comments: i'm sorry but v-1 or v-2? my sister lives nearby so i've climbed stoney when visiting from Colorado probably 5-6 times and this is one of my favorite spots (i've yet to see a guidebook).
The starting moves are pretty stout for v-2 and does this traverse go through the awkward beta-intensive moves that go 5-6 feet past the sculpture crack (past the bulge and blind reach)? If so i'd say 3+ at least for the entire traverse right to left.

Thoughts?
also- if anyone knows of a good so... more >>

Comments: I recently got some access to the private lands around the Breasts of the Earth and will be going up there for new route recon in two weeks. Hopefully I can find some stuff on the BLM /non-private land to develop for all.
Going up there with an open mind, lots of gear, and no drill. Hope to have something to report by end of May.

Comments: It's a good one, for some reason we found this easier than the 10b flake next-door. It took fiddling with gear at the crux would love to get back and lead it clean. Here's what I remember placing (it was like 3 hours ago, but short term memory... you know how it goes):

-#2 BD to keep you off the deck at the first wide part.
- Something thin past that, maybe a blue Metolius or similar (if needed, it's not hard to the jug), then to the "jug" before it zags left,
-you can place a 0.75 ... more >>
