Comments: Average hiking times for a fit climber: 40 minutes to base of S. Slabs, 45 to SE Face, 55 to NW Slab, 1 hour to Breakers/Granite Sea.

My best car to summit time - via the Sugar Mountain route (sans rope/climbing shoes) is 58 minutes. A decent trail-runner (I suck) could easily knock 5-10 minutes off that time. Let's see it!

Comments: I felt Age Axe made for an enjoyable outting with great views and decent climbing. The crux is pretty unique and super cool.

Comments: Excellent climbing in a superb setting. The climbing is serious in several spots but not really scary due to the great quality of rock.

Comments: Excellent route! Technical climbing on small edges between good rests; and on pretty good rock. I'd say 11a redpoint - 11b onsight. It's funny how face/slab route gradings work. Go climb Origional Sin in Eve's Cave (10c) - and then Red Hot Space Suit (12b) at the Palace to get an idea of just how subjective the ratings sytem can be.

Comments: Fun, fun, fun. Soft for the grade, but it packs a mental/physical punch on the onsight. Didn't think I'd get that pumped on such a flat route.

Comments: Ha ha, I'll have to hike back up there with a camera soon. I know you don't boulder much (swimming up couloirs is more your thing), but you should definitely hop on this one Ryan!

I'd also add that this problem is listed (with photos) in the excellent NC3 downloadable guide (free!!!)@ nococlimbing.org/climbing

Comments: Fun, fun, fun. You might want to pull softly in a few places, but the rock is for the most part pretty good.

Comments: Fun, fun, fun. No move harder than 5.10, but not many less than 5.10 either, with a short/steep crux up high.

Comments: Thanks for the insight Crusher - I picked up a copy of your book and it's been a great source of (endless) inspiration.

Comments: I gave it a drunken half/hearted attempt last fall... I was shut down by a lack of testicular fortitude, and that shallow pod up/right of the initial seam on P1. A large sawed off angle blew as I bounce tested it and a scary off-blance swing onto 2 stacked peckers forced me to re-evaluate my Fisher credentials. I recall sending Jeremy A. an extremely drunken email asking just how the hell do you climb those shallow cuttler seams? - he understandingly never replied (no hard feelings).

Can't wait... more >>

Comments: Great route - also a good warm up for some of the harder stuff.

Comments: The crux for me was right off the ground. Excellent route - not pumpy or powerful at all, just techy. Brown Sugar makes for a great warm up for this route.

Comments: This is a serious pitch with insecure climbing on suspect rock well above your gear. Still, it's an adventurous outting and worth a star.

Comments: Barfy's is a fun climb and well worth doing.
Scott, the slab right of the dirty corner is known as Judy's Jaunt (5.7), and yes, it's a much better finish to Barfy's - making for a 3 star route.

Comments: This is a really enjoyable route on great rock. Fantastic climbing - way better than the dirty corner finish to Rites of Passage. There seems to be several options as to which path of seams and cracks to follow - but all appear equal in difficulty. Fun fun fun!

Comments: In the printed edition of the NC3's Poudre Canyon Guide, this route is titled "Keep the River Free", listed at 10a, and is given two well deserved stars.

Comments: "My hands still sweat when I think of Tom Moderson leading the blank lower face of Mr. Gone long before the bolts were added, or meandering up the Granite Sea with Jeff Bassett before a single bolt graced the face. Standard practice was to tiptoe up a blank face armed only with a rack of small wired nuts and hope for the best."
- Pat McGrane

Badass for sure. Greyrock has a proud history.
