Comments: This route is fun, but there is lots of not so good rock just prior to the offwidth. I broke of several holds which I thought might be good for the hands. The route is worth doing if you have done the other ones in the same area.

Comments: At the crux, the crack is 0.4 Camalot-sized. I placed mine earlier and wish I would have had two of them at the crux.

Comments: The move above the pin is not easy. The guidebook description made it sound like it would be. If you bring gear, it is not PG-13. Gear up to a #2 Camalot is good. Small cams before the first bolt.

Comments: This has ten bolts if anyone is wondering. The crux is at the last bolt. Big jugs but overhanging.

Comments: This is one of the few areas open at the moment. The climbs are thinner than usual but are still fun. They don't look a lot like many of the pictures on here.

Comments: It's too bad there is no Tyrol allowed by Jeffco. This crag is kind of fun and would be more popular if access was not so difficult.

Comments: My partner took a fall at the 2nd bolt on the 2nd pitch when a foothold knob broke off. I don't think the route got any harder, but you should be alert for fragile holds.

Comments: If you are short, the dilemma seems to be reaching a good hold by the second bolt. The route is not super hard, but it makes you think hard at the crux.

Comments: This is a nice warm-up route, but I think it is a little more difficult than 5.4. It's nice you have a warm-up right at hand when you reach the rock.

Comments: The popular areas are not covered in snow right now, but they may be in April. The snow only takes a day or two to melt. We have lots of sunshine here. I rock climb year round outdoors in CO, but it may snow when you are here.

Comments: To me, the crux on this was the first 10'. There is a good layback crack to the right where the holds are not really jugs in the crux area.

Comments: This route does have big holds. It is steep! The crux move is a really long move, but it is fun.

Comments: The holds in the crux area are big, but it is steep, and you don't have a lot of time to find the best ones. It is a short crux, but the route is fun.

Comments: You can avoid the heel hook at the beginning if you use some holds to the right on Br'er Rabbit. It may not be how the route was intended to go but, it does work.

Comments: It felt like the crux was at the bottom in the first few moves .

Comments: This is truly a 5.7 (unlike some if the other 7s at the crag). It looks like the step section will be difficult, but there are big jug holds which makes the passage easier than it first appears.

Comments: This route is more fun than Hobbes to the right that starts out the same.

Comments: I also placed 2 gold and one blue Camalot, but one gold would be safe. There are better routes to do at this wall.

Comments: The Horn Pipe variation is certainly better than the other last pitch. Not too hard, but great exposure.

Comments: While you can go to the anchors of Wanna be a Bolter, you only get a short, easy traverse from the Wannebe Right anchor. I top roped the route, but the protection does not look very good once you commit to the face above the crack.

Comments: I only found 4 bolts on this, maybe I missed the 5th.

Comments: Like many of the routes here, this one felt easier than what it is rated. The route is fun, but I thought the crux was a few moves near the "hump". Maybe I did not do the moves like the FA team. I did, however, like the route.
