Comments: Is a one glue-in bolt safe to TR off of? I don't see the reason not to have a second bolt.

Anyway, looks like you can scramble up a gully system on the East side and pull on to the summit block on a north facing steep section, or slot, to set a TR, not sure though.

Anyone have any info on this route?

Comments: This route is not right off the trail but about 40' uphill around another small boulder. The two move thin crux is definitely just above the 2' headwall. The route ends about 50 yards south and above Sentinel Pass. I cleared some dead branches from the top of the route. Good to go.

Comments: I attempted to take on the West Sentinel "direct", up the overlapping flakes, facing the trail, but the flakes were loose and scary.

I also climbed the small flatiron just left of W. Sentinel, I'll call it "South Sentinel" (left of the tree in the photo), a 50' route; a short, vertical south face to east slab route, similar to W.Sentinel. Not sure if it has a name.

Comments: I started at the SE corner and traversed right, below the friable, thin rock halfway up the face, to stay on solid fun featured rock. I pulled up a shallow gully on the right-central area of the face and ended on the north rib to the summit. Seemed like a more enjoyable, longer, and safer solo that the South Ridge route.

Comments: Rather airy and scary, maybe because it was dark, licheny, wet, and close to Halloween. I missed the bolt above my head on the traverse left. The rope got totally stuff on lowering, as I descended the left side of the arête, and then had to reclimb the crux section to free it.

Comments: I did this cool route again, and it definitely feels 5.10ish. Definitely worth doing, but stretch first if it's your warm-up.

Comments: I did the same as Eric, clip the right anchor, then pull in to place the left one. I hung on as long as I could to clip that left one with no success.

Comments: Oh, this is a very fun climb, esp. the overhanging jug bit and the chunky top section, too. Would be a great warm-up, except for the first 2 strenuous, sketchy clips.

Comments: Warm-up? Who on earth would warm-up on this one? Right from the get go, you have to reach high off a sketchy block to clip the first bolt, then crimp like hell off opposing side-pulls, grovel your feet left, pull hard and throw to a rounded bump with the right hand, then reach way out left, and continue on insecure verticalness to the top. My partner and I were quite pumped after this 2nd route of the day and felt ready to just go home (but we stayed to flail on more routes). Eleanor was more su... more >>

Comments: I suppose it might be 10b or so if you stay under the bolt line at the start as the holds are sloping downward, but as this was a warm-up, I climbed left of the bolt line on easier ground.

Comments: I would recommend using the Seal Rock approach trail, the north face talus and blocks are slippery when wet and slow going.

Comments: The rock is steep and smooth at the start, offering only tiny edges for your feet that are exfoliating, so be careful. Reach a jug after 15'. Be careful not to pull on the obvious hand-sized rock loose next to the jug. Easier and more enjoyable cracks and edges proceed, with good holds and gear. Enjoy!


Location: CO : Boulder : Boulder Canyon : The Sport Park : Overhung Wall : Warm Up (5.11)
By: Glen Charnoski When: May 8, 2015

Comments: This is a hard warm-up! For me, the crux involves reaching around the arête at the overhang, reaching out to palm the arête, holding in with a right heel, and throwing for a jug on top of the arête "column". I missed with my right hand and, on TR, caught it with an awkward left hand. The move above the overhang to the last bolt is reachy and balancy, too.

Comments: Not knowing better, I followed up the natural line on the right side of the face, where I saw a few (precarious) flakes to put some gear. The climbing is easy on average (5.0-5.2), except for a few moves on small rounded holds, notably, about 40' below the summit, right before a flake. The soloist in the photo turned around and downclimbed after being "stuck" at this crux. So, it's an easy solo, with a few committing steeper sections on small holds. At any rate, there is not much gear to place a... more >>

Comments: This route is quite an adventure. Route finding was fun, as I didn't really read the beta about the route. Quite hard and slick and mossy getting over some chockstones. Good time of year to do it (spring) as the vegetation is trampled by winter snow. The bushwhacking was so bad, I went only to the top of the Upper Tangen Tower, which has quite a nice view of Royal Arch.

Comments: I think this is the Flatiron referred to as "North Icarus" (elev. 7070) on lists of john. See listsofjohn.com/peak/140830.

Comments: I also agree with Crusher about the anchor "crux" moves. I lead the thing, only to be staring at the anchor bolts holding a tenuous pinch 8 inches from the anchor, for what seemed like eternity, not knowing what to do, only to have no other option than to just fall off. Later, I realized I should have gone on past the anchor to the jugs to clip the anchor.

Comments: The top edge above the anchor isn't very positive to pull through the crux, but after getting up there, I saw a nice hold a bit to the right to pull up on and stand to clip the anchor (if you don't wish to grab the chains beforehand).

Comments: Interesting line at the right of the climbable section of the wall (lichen lurks just to the right). I found some loose rock in the vertical seams in the first 20 ft. Can continue route by using last 5 bolts of "No Direction Home" for added enjoyment.

Comments: If JeffCo has designated this area as biologically "sensitive", explain to me this: If you look at a satellite image of Ralston Buttes, you will notice a new HUGE house built immediately east of the main summit area at the end of a road built just for access to the house. A round-about offers easy in and out. There appears to be a mini-golf course built in the backyard. A large road extends NW of this house up to a clearing that would suggest another location for a mansion. What on earth is goin... more >>
