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.

Comments: I thought this felt easier than the route, "Labby", to the left, which is given 5.9-. The route is fun though and is worth doing if you are at the wall.

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!

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.
