Location: CO : Golden : Clear Creek Canyon : Other Critters : Tortoise Scute (5.7)

Comments: This is a fun route and is not difficult for a 5.7. The route gets you high up on the side of the canyon. This would be a good route for new 5.7 leaders. It is safely bolted and not very sustained.

Comments: This is a fun route but it is just barely 5.8 in difficulty. There may be one 5.8 move but there are not multiple 5.8 moves.

Comments: This is a fun climb, and it is bolted very well. It seemed more like 5.6 than 5.7 to me. There are great holds in all the steep sections.

Comments: The overhang near the bottom is the hardest part. Going directly straight up is the best way to surmount it. Left or right is more difficult. The route is a fun addition to the wall. I only used a 0.3 Camalot, but more gear can be placed.

Comments: This is a fun route! There is a great finger lock and nut placement above the last bolt. There is a great finger pocket in the same area as well.

Comments: This is a fun route. It is too bad it is so short. The hardest part consists of maybe 1 5.9 move. A good, quick warm-up!


Location: CO : Boulder : Upper Dream Canyon : Vanishing Point : Standback (5.10c/d)

Comments: The clips are not "tenuous" on this. The holds are small and not obvious at times, but if you find them all, the climb is very doable. It felt about 11a to me.

Comments: If you don't want to use the bolts with quicklinks to descend, it is an easy downclimb in the gully to the north.

Comments: This is a fun route and is worth doing, but it felt easier than 5.8 to me. I think it is a 5.7, but it is worth doing if you are in the area.

Comments: This is correctly described here as having 3 bolts. The Bob D'Antonio guidebook says it has 4 bolts.

Comments: We combined the two pitches, and it worked out well. There was not much rope drag. It saves some time.

Comments: The top on this is interesting. Going out to the arÍte on the right is the easiest way, but going direct works too.

Comments: This is the easiest of the three routes that share the same start. If you do all three you dial in the crux by doing it three times.

Comments: This is a good route. It is certainly the most physical near the top. The hold here is a big jug, but the feet are not very good.

Comments: This is called "Climbing Sports" in the new guide by Kevin Capps and Matt Lloyd.

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.
