Comments: The bolts and anchor have been replaced. Thanks to the Boulder Climbing Community for supplying the hardware. Consider donating to them if you don't already.

Comments: I first did this route over 10 years ago and got on it again yesterday. I didn't remember the rock quality coming into question before, but yesterday I was surprised by how many edges flaked off, both for hands and feet. I didn't remember it being friable, but I must have broke a dozen holds yesterday (not that there's much to break on this route). The climbing is still good and hard, but actually after doing it twice yesterday, I'm not convinced more holds won't snap off in the future.

Comments: This start has been lead before now. I did it with Ben Schneider, and I'm sure it's been done before even then. Also P2 is most likely the route called Azimuth, although Dan Hare doesn't fully recall where they went but is pretty positive that's it.

Comments: First climbed this in 2004 with Jordan Wood. I'm sure it's been done long before that too.

Comments: The standard parking lot has been closed. I received this email from one of the rangers down there:

"Wanted to let you know the parking situation at the “Radio Head” area off the Rampart Range road has changed. A gate and fencing was installed this fall to control access to the communication facilities and prevent parking and camping at that location. There is no parking available at this location now. We hope to develop additional parking the south to account for the 5-10 spaces this takes ... more >>

Comments: Greg German, Greg Barnes, and I replaced the original anchor on this route with 1/2" stainless steel bolts. The old 3/8" wedge bolts spun out with scary ease. The exact same holes were used. Someone recently added new plated steel chain to the anchor, but we swapped that out for stainless steel rings. If you were the person who put the chain on there and would like it back, please contact me.

Comments: To add to Tod's response, I will say that there are no signs posted down there (old or new). That doesn't make it OK to be there, just saying it would be easy to mistakenly climb in the affected area without realizing it. I left that closure info out of my book, because the rangers I spoke to numerous times over the years didn't know anything about it, and I couldn't find anything on their website. Hubbel printed a closure note in his Platte guidebook for the area, but he didn't remember where h... more >>

Comments: FWIW, according to Scott, he never redpointed the route, although he did bolt it. I redpointed it in August of 2011, which Scott believed was the first "send" of the route. Even so, great job on Scott's part and real "route credit" goes to him.

Comments: Just glad you got on it, Matt. It took several visits to get those ring bolts out, and I'm just happy to see it wasn't for nothin'.

Comments: Joe Crotty, TJ Brumme, and I replaced the bolts on both pitches with 4" stainless steel glue-ins. We were able to reuse several of the same holes, but a few of the other bolts broke while we were trying to extract them, so we had patch and drill a few new holes. Thanks to the BCC for supplying the hardware

Comments: Someone chopped the last bolt, which doesn't change the safety or anything. The bolt was placed on top of the rock (where your feet stand hands free) and served as a one-bolt anchor. Currently you have to top out and build an anchor on hand-sized cams and then rap the Quivering Quill anchor.

Comments: This is actually Lack Crack. Lack Crack and Moderate #2 names should switch on this site as they're backwards. It is clearly labeled in a photo in Cheyney's guidebook.

Comments: Moritz B., could you have accidentally tried to go straight to the Reservoir instead of right to stay on FS-211? That happens at mile 2.0. There's no gate at 2.2 though.

I saw your post so I checked it out yesterday - the entire road is open. No locked gates for over 15 miles on 211. I'd also find it hard to believe they'd lock 211 since they never have in the past, plus there's the ranch that uses that road.

Government shutdown maybe? Who knows. Anyway, the drive/approach is good to g... more >>

Comments: Not that it really matters as those guys can never remember who did what (ha! I know you're going to read this Glenn and Kevin!), but I was told the name was Spank Me and the FA was Kevin and Steve Cheyney.

Glenn - thanks for adding the anchor on top.

Comments: There is a new rappel route from the summit. It was installed to help mitigate the degradation of the standard walk off, which is in major disrepair. There are two chain anchors near the summit, basically between the top of Empor and Northwest Corner. There is another rap station on a small ledge between those two routes for a second rappel. Two raps with one 60-meter rope gets you down.

Comments: All the bolts on this route were replaced in early June by myself, Dan Hickstein, and Greg Miller. Hardware was supplied by the ASCA and BCC. Please support these organizations if you don't already.
