Location: CO : Boulder : Boulder Canyon : The Solar Dome (aka LightHo... : Morning Sunshine (5.7)
By: Jay Eggleston When: 6 hours ago

Comments: This route really is a one move wonder but it is a good warm up climb and is good for new leaders. The bolts are very closely spaced at the most difficult parts.


Location: CO : Golden : Clear Creek Canyon : East Colfax : Tweety (5.9)

Comments: This is another good route and good for those breaking into this level of leading. There are several good rest ledges.

Comments: I think the top, just to the right of Tweety, is the crux on this. It was fun and not too hard if you are a new 5.10 leader. Another good route in the area!

Comments: For an easy route, this is a lot of fun! Sometimes moving over rock is enjoyable regardless of the ease of the moves.

Comments: This would make a really good first lead for someone who is new to climbing.

Comments: This is a fun route and the crux is certainly at the top. A friend and I talked about bolting routes on this pinnacle a few months ago. Thanks to the guys that got it done.


Location: CO : Boulder : Boulder Canyon : Boulder Slips : Same As It Ever Was (5.11a/b)

Comments: The crux on this is certainly at about the first bolt. The bolt will be hard to clip if you are short, and if you fall doing the crux, it seems like the bolt is barely high enough to keep you from hitting the rock below.

Comments: This is a fun route. We did not use a #3 Camalot in the spot in Leo Paik's picture. We used smaller cams just above and a #3 as the last piece, much higher. The crux is certainly at the spot listed in the picture. This route shares an anchor with Family Guy and Same as it Ever Was and does not have its own anchor as shown in the D'Antonio guide.

Comments: The only cam we used on this was a #3 Camalot above the last protection bolt. Other cams did not seem necessary. The second bolt is a bit high for an easy clip. A piece of cord was attached so you could clip sooner, but the cord won't last forever.

Comments: I did this for the second time recently. It was 5 years between attempts, and I have not gotten any better at slab climbing. It still feels hard! I forgot how thin the slab moves are on this. It is easier after the crux, but every pitch has some thin moves on it.

Comments: I brought 2 #5 Camalots on this, and I wish I had brought 3. I know you have to go above gear on a climb at some point, but I kept moving the cams up as I climbed. If you are a solid off width climber, you would not care, but 3 would have made me feel better.


Location: CO : Boulder : Boulder Canyon : The Boulderado : Fistula (5.3)
By: Jay Eggleston When: Apr 2, 2014

Comments: The biggest piece I used on this was a #4 Camalot. There are places for lots of smaller gear. I used a #3 at the top but nothing bigger than a #1 lower on the pitch.

Comments: This is a really easy route except a few moves at the roof in the middle. I think it is worth doing if you are in the area.

Comments: I did this for the third time today. I found out it is not a good idea when it is seeping water and has ice on the rock at the top. I had to use two points of "aid".

Comments: This route is listed in the wrong place. It should be between "Take the Termites Bowling" and "Bowling Ball and Chain". It is easier at the bottom, maybe 10a, if you stay in the crack on the left at the crux.

Comments: I thought the crux on this was down low. I made it through the upper part which is supposed to be the crux. The bottom took a lot of strength. Maybe I am just not strong enough for it.

Comments: I think this is a little harder than it is rated in the D'Antonio guidebook. Not much harder, but I would say 11c rather than 11a/b.

Comments: You can easily make this route easier than 5.11. The top is 5.11 if you go directly up the bolt line. We went to the right and it was easier. We thought it was about 10c in difficulty at about the 5th or 6th bolt, can't remember which.

Comments: This is a fun route! We climbed it as a warm up. You can "sew" the crack up with gear if you want. A #2 Camalot is the biggest piece you need.

Comments: The crux on this is really only one move. It is protected by a #1 Camalot and then a #0.75 Camalot slightly higher. If you know how to crack climb, it is over quickly.

Comments: This seemed a bit harder than 11a to me. It took me a long time to figure out the crux moves.

Comments: I did this route again today with a partner, not solo, and it seemed easier. Maybe 10a.

Comments: As of today, the webbing on the raps still looked "ok". The first rap is from three fixed nuts. The second is from one bolt and two nuts. The third is from two bolts. You can place a #4 Camalot or two on the second pitch.

Comments: You definitely need small stuff on the first pitch. I wish I had doubles in small cams. The belay for the first pitch, if you do it in two pitches, is not on a very good ledge, but there is a sling anchor and a few cam placements.
