Comments: The blue line is called "Graffiti Face" in the new Clear Creek guide by Kevin Capps. He calls it 10c for difficulty, but I think it is much harder, maybe hard 5.11.

Comments: The left anchor is for the Changing Corners Dihedral. The right anchor is for the Beginner Sports route.

Comments: We did not find any loose rock today. We did the First Planet finish, and I think it is easier than the other finish (which I did in the past).

Comments: We did not find any loose rock on the route, but the un-level belay is no fun.

Comments: The crux is actually at the second bolt. One of my taller partners made it look easy, he called it 5.9. Me and another shorter partner thought it truly was 11a for difficulty,

Comments: This is a fun route! The jug at the crux, on the overhanging wall, is amazing! The holds above are not as obvious, and the next bolt is committing to clip. If you can climb the grade and are at East Colfax, you should do it.

Comments: The rap rings look good now. The crux on this would be easier, and less risky, if you are tall. The crux is one move but not very easy.

Comments: The last part is "run-out", but it is easy if you had no problems on the lower part.

Comments: This has 3 bolts, but the D'Antonio guide lists the route as only having 2 bolts.

Comments: I did this for the second time today. I did a slight variation by clipping the first 4 bolts of "Get a Job". This was fun and about the same difficulty. I only had to place two or three peices on the first pitch having clipped the bolts.

Comments: The nut placement looks pretty good. There is a #1 Camalot placement just above. I found another good #1 placement above so I would bring two. The crux is short, but I think it is about 10a in difficulty.

Comments: This pitch is short, but it is fun if you want something more challenging than "Purrrfect Puppy ". The holds at the crux are not obvious but are very good once you locate them. The crux feet are poor. The third bolt is hard to see from below. It is only 5 or so feet above the second bolt.

Comments: This is a great crack climb! On pitch two, there is gear other than the bolt if you wish to place any going up the arÍte. I placed two small cams and a nut besides clipping the bolt.

Comments: This is a great route! The 5.8 slab looks like it will be difficult, but holds appear when things seem like they will be difficult.

Comments: This route is easy but is really fun and is a good warm up for the wall.

Comments: "Get a Life" does go to the left. "Get Insurance" is what you probably did.

Comments: I think this has cleaned up a lot, and all the rock seems good now.

Comments: If you see "Long Walk Rock" on the approach, you have gone too far. You can't see the rock on the approach, but you want to cut right when it does not seem like you are in a gully anymore.

Comments: The protection on this is not great. There is gear but not a lot and not always when you want it. You don't jam very much in this crack. Things get easier near the top.

By: Jay Eggleston When: Sep 26, 2014

Comments: The end of the crack is the most difficult. The crack pushes you to the left when you want to jam straight in. The cold shut anchor would be good after a lead, but to top rope it is easier to set an anchor above.

Comments: I don't think this deserves a bomb, but it is not great. Maybe a good warm-up for the crag, but it is not a destination climb. The crux is near the top, and the rest felt about 5.7 in difficulty.

Comments: This is a fun climb, but it is awkward below the second bolt. The holds here are small and the move committing. I think it may feel harder than 10- for some. I saw a new sequence I will do at the crux if I ever do it again.

Comments: Others called this route "dirty" in the past. It is not very dirty right now. I agree with the "off camber" comment though. The crux is near the top but only a few moves in length.

Comments: I think this is 11a, but the crux is short and near the top. Lower, the route is easier but still hard 5.10.
