Comments: Nah, solid rock, Ben. Very featured with the occasional prominent rock, as you see in the picture.

Comments: One can avoid the jump by switching rocks at the base of the fern gully, ~15-20' below with great holds. Jumping looked very insecure to me....my two cents.

Comments: If the slab crux isn't your cup of tea, follow the little ledge to where it peters out hanging over the gash. There's a wall full of bomber holds that will get you 2/3rds of the way up the slab, at the small, half-dying tree to climber's left as viewed from below. One solid handhold and a decent foot will bring you home free, big footholds to the main headwall.

Comments: derek wolfe and i climbed a different route today to ham rock's("harkonnen castle") true summit. we climbed from the north to the 5.8+ bulge to the saddle between the ham and the main summit and worked our way around to the 5.6/5.7 dirty west chimney. from there it's an easy cruise to the summit.

we saw the 3-bolt anchor for the 5.10 route on the sub-summit across the large gash. our question is has anyone been to the true summit previously? it certainly didn't look that way.

Comments: A really good climb. Qe were surprised at how sustained the 5.9 climbing was! From this site, we assumed the bulge on P2 was the crux and possibly the only 5.9 move, but that's untrue as the thin 5.9 moves are consistent for the first 4-5 bolts on P2. Also, breaking the climb into 2 pitches is very important to reduce rope drag higher up.

Comments: This route is an awesome, hidden gem on a relatively unknown Flatiron. Thanks for posting that TR, Brian; I was hoping to see something from this day.

Yes, Skunk Canyon's foliage is going wild this year, but the approach isn't bad if one knows the secrets of the trail. The poison ivy is immense, many times larger than I expected! A microcam off to its right safely detoured us from this obstacle. The 5.8 section on the summit block's SE corner loads of fun, wish it was longer! Great ho... more >>

Comments: We brought a fairly big rack yesterday, since we were doing other climbs throughout the day. I figured, why not, I'll lug some of this stuff up the chimney for training weight. As a result, I was able to sew up the chimney fairly decently, playing seven pieces (wouldn't have trusted two to hold a leader fall) at pretty even intervals. This surprised me seeing that everyone out there talks about only one piece of pro for the route. Has anyone else had this experience and just hasn't spoken up? Th... more >>

Comments: someone removed the bolts?!?!? come on!

my heart just jumped after discovering there was a 5.7/A0 on zeus, then sank while reading about the bolts. that sucks. does canyonlands no bolts ethics prevent bolts from being replaced in the old slots once again since it's not further scarring the rock? what do you think the route goes without the bolts? 5.9?

Comments: Seems like a seasonal thing to me. We were on the North Wing Friday(7/18), and while there were places with lichen, its presence was never disturbing. Overall, it was cleaner than I hoped. Then again, all the cracks seemed to be leaning left in my eyes, and our three parties could have all been on different lines.

Comments: Thanks Julius, I figured the fading light was holding a secret from us. I'll keep a sharp eye out for something much further left next time.

Comments: Has anyone rappeled the Matron recently?

We did Saturday and seemingly got off route. I went first on the upper rappel and found an awkwardly placed pair of bolts ~90 feet down far to the rappeler's right. The next rap, on a 60m rope, will reach the ground if one followed the rock face down to the left. If one slips on all that lichen in the area, or goes over the overhang straight below the bolts, it's a long way back up the rope for a "re-do".
