Comments: Just went and got mine and let me just say that this guide book (IMO) has just set a new standard on how guidebooks should be done. Excellent work to whoever put it together.

Comments: You can bail off this route (if need) be in a matter of 40 seconds from almost any given spot which makes this a great place for shaky first timers.

Comments: I thought PP&BB was easier than Good Man Dan but not by much. For what I've been on in this area I would call it 10a; however, the ratings in this area are the worst I've ever seen, and I think it has a lot to do with that damn Hubbel guidebook. We did a climb to the right of this that was supposedly a 11c and it was certainly not an 11c, more like a 9.

Comments: Mid way up on this route the holds are like soap dishes in the shower. Insane how slick it was, I could see this being a good route but until myself or someone else gets a brush and gets that chalk off the holds I would only give this route one star. There was so much chalk my shoes were slipping off holds.

Comments: I was just notified by a acquaintance in England that the news channels have reported that there will be a memorial service held at the ocean side crag tomorrow.

I am just relaying information from a seemingly reliable source and have not seen or heard any of this first hand.

He also told me that the water temperature in the ocean is 50 degrees F and that is not good.

Comments: What is the bolted route directly to the right of Comeback Crack? It goes up maybe 4 or 5 bolts to a two bolt anchor to the best of my recollections

Comments: Regardless of the steps I found this to be a stellar route. As far as the previous comments about Eldo having better 5.7s, all I can say is it's two different worlds. It's like asking which city you like better, New York or Seattle? It just depends on what you want.

Comments: If you guys are talking about the route farthest to the right that starts with cold shuts, that is a Craig Luebben route called Fantastic Voyage that goes 5.10- on the first pitch, and I'm not sure on the second pitch. I don't know about the x rating, I don't remember it being that sketchy, but maybe we are not talking about the same route. The one I am talking about is as far as you can go to the right on the ledge right by the tree that starts with cold shuts.

Comments: Kirk - I met you up at Table about 2 months ago, and you told me about this climb. I will be doing it this week, and I just wanted to thank you for your thoughtful work.

Comments: I thought the crux was about 2/3rds of the way up and was not a 5.7. I don't know if I do the routes correctly up at Table or if the ratings are the most inconsistent I've ever seen. I climbed this with 3 others who also agreed that this was in the 5.8 range. I sent my girlfriend up this for her first sport lead and she got her money's worth.

Comments: I thought this was the best 5.8 I have done in Tradlands this far and up there with any of the top 5.8s I've done at Table. The bottom section is a little bogus, but I liked everything up top.

Comments: I think that the general consensus is that most of the Torture Chamber is a clusterbomb as far as ratings go and I'm not sure where it started or came from or if I am even on the right climbs, I think I was? According to the guide books I've used I thought I was but I agree that those ratings are not just a little off they are whole grades off, what am I gonna do? Go climbing up Boulder Canyon on Saturday for some multi-pitch trad routes, Hopefully I am on the right ones and if not I hope I have... more >>

Comments: I did not rate these climbs as I thought they felt to me, I rated them in accordance to Bob Horan's Colorado Front Range Bouldering Volume 1. I would agree with the ratings seeming soft minus S-Crack. The ratings were as follows.

S-Crack - 5.10+c/d
Cracky Face - 5.10+c/d
Final Finger - B1- (the equivalent of V2 or 5.11a/b)

Comments: Someone is putting in, or already put up, a route in between Fantastic Voyage and Tour de Poudre? The river must be real high and hard to make it over to the Palace.

I cannot take credit for posting this area on Mountain Project, CharlieO gets those honors. When I saw that someone had posted the area, I went through my photos to see if I had any of the Crystal Wall and I posted them and shared what I knew about the area.

I have only been to the Palace once and will most likely not ... more >>

Comments: Richard
I believe that the route to the right of Tour de Poudre (the one that starts off with two cold shuts) is a Craig Luebben route called Fantastic Voyage and I believe it goes 5.10a/b. I have only done the first pitch and I didn't remember what the second pitch looked like, so I did not enter it on the site. I heard it goes 5.11 something but I'm not sure. The first pitch is pretty fun. I am not 100% about the ratings I entered on the routes I posted, because everyone I've talked to who had... more >>

Comments: I just wanted to write in and let everyone know I did make a mistake when I typed in the rating. The rating should be 5.11a/b. I could not find documentation that Breashears on-sighted this problem in the 1970's but did find documentation that he on-sighted Nemesis standard V7. Also you spelled Breashears incorrectly.
