Comments: Definitively WY 131 (aka Sinks Canyon Rd). I fixed the GPS.

Comments: Anyone at the Vault yesterday, Saturday April 23rd, pick up a our guidebook by mistake? Be happy to send you $ for postage! It's the Shelf Road Climbing: A Complete Guide (D'Antonio), complete with all my esoteric scribbling.

Comments: First ascent: Steve Mammen. Done before Moon arete. FYI, originally called Haley's Arete, but Steve's ok with the new name, Bastard Moon.

Comments: I'm only tentatively adding this as a first ascent. I know Rotary is pretty scoured. I asked Mammen about this line through a friend, and there was nothing as far as he knew. Let me know. Either way, I was psyched to travel some new moves at the stomping grounds. About the grade -- one hard move -- hard for me to grade -- skin was as much an issue as the move.

Comments: If you rate routes based on hardest moves it clocks in around modern 5.11d for one move (V4?), if you discount the boulder start, yes maybe 5.11b after that intro. Very interesting fun climbing either way!

Comments: Only 5.9+ in the Fred Becky boulder start sort of way. As in after the boulder problem, yes it is 5.9.

Comments: Per the broken hold, I've changed the grade. I think either the now worse block start, or the left crimps, both put the line around hard V2 or soft V3 range.

By: Jesse Ryan When: Mar 30, 2011

Comments: Not sure if this is consensus, but the start I used was about 7 feet left of the standard start of Potato Chip, with feet in a miniature hole and two low crimps with a fairly long first move straight up, followed by a traverse right to the start of PC.

Comments: Agree with the quality and preserving this route's nature as is, BUT I know of folks who hobbled away from this line with injuries due to the run-outs.

Comments: This is the Upper Echelon Wall in the Triple Tier Area as described in Leubben, Cross, and Scott's guide (NCCC's page and the Poudre Route Guide ). Great routes on this wall.

Caution! Most of the routes on this wall will require a 60m rope. Some of the routes in the center of the wall (ODK, Dream of Poudre, etc) may even stretch your 60m.

Comments: Very Nice Climb. I felt the intro slab had thin holds, but good enough feet that I would grade in the mid 11 range. The upper crux felt like a two bolt boulder problem. I wouldn't call the route sustained, mainly powerful. I tend to enjoy sustained routes like the nearby Wind and Rattlesnakes, but the great movement on this route make it a crag classic at the grade.

Comments: Super duper trick beta in the second paragraph for the crux pod - do not read ahead if you want the true onsight. The trick beta advice IS neither 1) laybacking up the right side of the crack - which hasn't gotten anyone I know up the route, particularly on lead 2) stemming or climbing over to climb and punishment, which I feel is a variation on the climb 3) nor jamming the crack straight on, which is good and fine if you can IMHO.

BETA ALERT: Read no further if you do not want to be tainted by... more >>

Comments: The starting flake did break. I noticed this June '08. The position for the hands seems pretty similar, but the initial heel hook is gone / very poor.

Comments: EKV starts with nice climbing along a 'slabby' prow. The angle kicks back on jugs. Fairly easy (but pumpy) climbing leads to the powerful and technical crux. Even after the hardest moves, EKV stays out you for a couple of bolts. Superb!

Comments: Great Line. A little spicy clipping some of the early clips off of the poor feet. Real fun laybacking, solid for grade (10c).
