Comments: I have never personally met Max but everything that I have heard is that he is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. It's very commendable that you guys are doing this for him in such a dark time. Sorry for your misfortune Max.

Comments: I couldn't see any wreckage when we sent it, so I would have to assume it was covered by snow. There was avalanche debris at the bottom of the couloir.

Does anyone know exact mileage from the trail head to Navajo's summit?

Comments: Does anyone know the name of the couloir lookers left of Navajo's summit while coming from Brainard? I skied it yesterday and was wondering. Good corn snow one good short section with some ice in it and there is a nut/cam anchor to rap over this section for the descent if you don't want to jump it like my buddy Zack did. This section is the crux of this climb.

Comments: There is somewhere between 4-6 of these eye bolts and they are big, but they get iced over in the winter time and can be impossible to find if you don't know where to look/dig. There is a distinct boulder that is pretty flat and right below this you will find the last bolt for rappelling. It sticks out of a flattish area just below the described boulder and points to the sky.

Comments: Does a cornice form on the top of this route in the winter time or is that the couliour to the west of this one? Does anyone know the name of this one if it isn't the mentioned?

I did one last winter which was a lot of fun and a great snow route with a good finish. We descended a couloir that was climber's right of this one that seemed to be great for a ski descent. It was a nice glissade as well.

Comments: Roger Dalke and Wayne Goss have the FA of this route in 1967. They did it at the same time that Briggs and Logan did the second ascent of D7.

Comments: Much props to all the search and rescue people that keep us safe. Although I hope I never have to use your services, I am always happy to know that people like you are waiting to help in the case of a mishap. Regardless of whether you are chasing liars or saving good people, I appreciate what you do and the safety blanket you cast for all that like to enjoy the outdoors. Luckily, in a society like ours, there are few wolf criers, and honorable people that will go out on the line for someone t... more >>

Comments: Not to say that this is the case but after a week of searching a relatively small canyon and the circumstances of his war situation isn't it possible that he doesn't want to go back to war and therefore is hanging out somewhere else? All I know is that if I was over in Iraq dealing with those traumas and came home to a place like Boulder the last place I would want to go is back to war.


Location: CO : Boulder : Boulder Canyon : Blob Rock Area : Blob Rock : ... : Central Chimney (5.6)

Comments: On the last pitch, there are two routes possible, the one to the right is slightly more difficult and is more of a chimney. If you choose the left route, which it appears most do you have to traverse slightly right at the top of the pitch, there is a massive hold which is difficult to spot from below but if you commit you've made it. The previous chimney is also fun and offers the left and right chimney options. This climb is fun but no jewel by any means.

Comments: 6/24/06 Route was in good shape and had snow throughout it. The cornice at the top of the route was in and seemed to be fairly small comparatively. The snow was hard and never really softened up before our ski descent around 11:30AM. Our party of three never felt the need to rope up although the snow was great for axe and picket placements.

Comments: "These closures are based upon a determination that such action is necessary for the maintenance of public health and safety, protection of environmental or scenic values, protection of natural resources and avoidance of conflict among visitor use activities."

Depending on how one interprets this statement I think that it represents the fact that someone always has a problem with things that other people are doing. For example in Boulder I constantly hear complaining about dogs that are walked... more >>

Comments: You live you die and the only thing that matters is what happens in between. To not take a risk could to some mean not ever having lived. I feel more alive when doing things that most people perceive as super dangerous and blatantly risking your life but over my life time I feel as though I have minimized that risk through technology and lived to the fullest. All in all I don't want to die doing these fun and risky endeavors but at the same time I don't want to waste away my life worrying abo... more >>

Comments: Great for a mid to late June July ski. My advise would be to bring crampons and an axe depending on your approach and perhaps go a little lighter on the gear than we did.

Comments: Climbed it last weekend, and the rock fall was petrifying. The sound of the jerks knocking rocks off of Broadway on [Kiener's] was perhaps the scariest thing I have ever endured. One that was a good foot and a half in diameter nailed the rock two feet from me, luckly we positioned our belays in protected areas, otherwise I think that would have been my last climb.

The book referred the climb as 5.6 mostly with a couple of 5.8 [pitches]. Climbing it in my mountaineering boot I'm sure didn't h... more >>
