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.

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).

Comments: On the grade: The lower crux was on par but a tad easier than the crux on Twitch in Clear Creek. Obviously the line is more continuous above the initial crux than Twitch, thus I felt the line was solid at 12d.

Comments: Really fun set of pitches. Thought the 2nd could be a bit scary for a 5.9 leader -- was a bit dirty and a tad run-out. !st and 3rd are the gems, 1st for movement, 3rd for exposure.
