Comments: The summit is in bad condition. My partner dislodged a ton of rock on rappel. The ledge he was standing on to begin his rappel let loose. I was nearly crushed as I waited below.

Comments: There is loose block midway on pitch 2. Be careful not to use it as a hold.

Comments: This wandering route is much harder than 5.8. Not worth the time.

Comments: I think if you're breaking into 5.8, this one will be scary. Gear is sparse and tricky in spots.

Comments: The beginning was edgy, and spicy without any good gear. I was a little gripped. But I could have been off route.

Comments: This is a fun climb. I would recommend this climb to any leader. But I agree about the stump. If you fall - Owwww!

Comments: This was my friend's first climb outside of a gym. She loved it! I would recommend this to any first-time climbers to Eldo.

Comments: I did this twice hoping the second time I would do it a little smoother. Nope. It's grunty and and sweaty. Bring the #4 cam. The opening moves aren't really hard, if you're somewhat tall, if I remember. Have fun!

Comments: I thought this climb was great! Crimps, finger locks and a cool roof at the end with huge holds! Only the broken ledge midway takes away a star.

Comments: Jason, I'm glad someone else thought this was as tough as I did. I agree, mother was the hardest 7's I've ever done.

Comments: I thought this climb was a little harder than Deck Chairs. The climb is short but seems like solid 10.

Comments: Super fun! Short, but [great] fun for the 5.8 leader.

Comments: Make sure it has been dry for a few days. If the top of the crack is wet, the climb turns from a fun 5.7 to an [awful] experience.

Comments: I led this with only a couple of 3 inch cams, a 3.5 and smaller pieces. I ran out of big gear and had to "be creative." Take a 4" or 5" for the bottom. Also, this crack is way difficult if your not used to offwidths. I've learned that the decimal system doesn't mean much here. It is easy to get over your head. I've led 9+ in South Platte that felt more comfortable.
