Comments: I have contacted Rossiter via email and he is in favor of updating the bolts. He did state that he would like to be involved in the process and suggested he may want to move the location of one or two of the bolts.
Maybe we could have a group replacement effort next summer. The job seems like a lot for one individual to take on.

Comments: This is one of my favorite routes in the Park, or anywhere, for that matter! Great exposure, beautiful rock, and incredible alpine setting.
The crux moves are well-protected by the pin, as others have stated, but I think it's a huge sandbag to call this route 10-. The crux is very tenuous and thin for several moves to clip the pin and then move above it to the good hand jam. I've climbed this route 13 times over the years, and I've never found the 10- sequence! I call it solid for 10c. Just my ... more >>

Comments: The entire bottom of this route fell off!!! Massive chunks of rock the size of buses are lying at the bottom of the cliff. The first three bolts fell off. I crawled under one of the fallen blocks and pulled two draws off the bolts! The most unusual booty I've ever collected.
The routes to the left and right seem ok, but it's pretty sobering to see the amount of fresh rock lying at the bottom of this cliff.

Comments: Great pitch! But closer to 11d than 11a.

Comments: Great climb, one of my favorites in the Park.

The bolts are starting to look pretty bad. Almost all the bolts are completely rusted.

Comments: All bolts on this route look suspect to me and are totally rusted through. Looks liked mixed metal corrosion (Galvanic corrosion).

Comments: Maybe I just wasn't climbing well, but this does not seem like a good introductory 5.11 for Eldo. Seems very hard at the grade.
The pin seems ok, but it certainly isn't bomber. This is a heads up and difficult lead.

Comments: Amazing! The colors and perspective are incredible (not to mention the climber sans rope!).
Really well done.

Comments: Nice route! New first bolt protects the crux perfectly. No stick clip needed.
After the crux moves, the climb eases off to nice, 11-, slab climbing.

Comments: The old bent pin on the pitch 1 crux is no longer there. Bring a purple C3 or similar to protect this section.

Comments: This pitch is incredible! Powerful moves through the roof and getting to the second bolt then it becomes very much about technique and footwork. Wonderful Eldo rock and climbing. Only bolts on the traverse, no tat or fixed copperheads, and it seemed very well protected. The bolts are perfectly placed. Look for a no hands rest at the second bolt just prior to initiating the balancy crux moves.
