Comments: I found a ring at the Astro Domes 16th May 2014. Private message me with some basic facts to claim if you wanted it back.

Cheers, John

Comments: There are actually 3 bolts on this route. It starts in the center of the left face, starting up giant buckets. Pretty fun stuff.

Comments: The descent described above is good for routes on the south summit but there is a quick easy down climb from the north rock of the corridor that avoids crossing the chock stone, 5 minutes will see you back at the base of the route.

From the north side of the huge chock stone, head north west up slightly up left from the chock stone until you can see a easy exit going down and left. Follow this down and around until it comes out about 100 feet north of Cling or Fling on the west face.

Comments: I remember leading this in 1992 at the urging of "my friends" and being shit scared. Holds up well over time.

Comments: I think this route would be 3/4 stars if the first bolt was moved to a more logical place up and just a hair right...

Comments: Lucky enough to followed some young gun up this and went the way Dave Mayville has popularized using the first bolt on Chameleon and then jamming the right slanting crack back to the upper crack. Great climbing and looked like better gear to lead that way. Exit right to bolted anchor.

Comments: Four great 5.10+ single pitch cracks at the Boulder Pile with great gear and easy to get from one to the other:

- Weasels Rip My Flesh (tricky strenuous hand jamming)
- Piranha (starts thin and moderate and becomes a desperate offwidth)
- Reveley '73 (steep and sustained thin hands and off fingers)
- The Trophy (full selection of crack technique)

Comments: This route's name is "The Trophy". FA by Noel Childs, Brett Bristol, Lee Marsh, Marion Durr and John Durr, 1987.

The formation is the Aerie. The route was named for a very large bowling trophy Brett wanted to use in the chimney section which was used as pro and left there per Brett's instructions "as a fixed piece".

Glad to see it got climbed again - it's a great route that's got it all including a great Platte summit.

Comments: Guided this route a couple years ago. Although the rock is real grainy and unpleasant, the climbing is more interesting than appears from below.

Comments: The flared fist crack start to the left is great and this makes this climb very enjoyable. There is good pro to the second bolt and the upper half is pretty easy.

Comments: Josh adventure climbing - might as well walk/down climb toward Asian Fever Buttress off this as the current anchor is mank.

Comments: A fun way to do this route is to head straight up to the right facing thin corner lieback directly (P2 above), climbing past a single bolt and avoid the higher traverse left to the corner mentioned in the description of P1.

This makes it easier to complete in one pitch to the anchor as well. Maybe 5.7?

Comments: Sustained friction with the crux clipping the first bolt? Fun but not worth leading a second time.

Comments: "Realizing the pitch was not safe as done, I returned with Mike Cohen and redid the pitch and successfully placed the second bolt."

50 years ago. Cool.
