Comments: Just wondering if any one has found a pair of red and white Scarpa shoes at the Canal Zone. Let me know if you have seen them. Thanks,

Comments: I was up there the same day. I was touring in the trees off the road at about 3-3:30. I heard some people talking on the road on my way in, I am wondering if that was you? It was a great day to be out and about. The TR was pretty cool, nice pictures!

Comments: Thanks for posting this. I have been meaning to do this route for a while now. Dave Cooper gives a great description of the route as a summer climb in his book 50 Classic Colorado Scrambles, I believe the pitch climbing out of the notch is rated 5.2 under less serious conditions (I don't know for sure as I have not actually climbed the route though). Did you guys ski in or snowshoe? I have been ski touring up there alot this winter and wondered what the route would be like in winter conditions. ... more >>

Comments: Climbed the first pitch this morning at about 730am, it was way cold. When my partner got to the crux he clipped a fixed cam in the cave/crack and tried to rest on it to warm up his fingers. The stem of the cam broke as I was taking in slack, luckily he had a good jam and caught himself. The cam head is still in the crack but is no longer available for clipping. Beware when clipping fixed gear. Climb safe,
Kirk

Comments: I am not too sure about the rating for this route, this is my best guess. If anyone else has climbed the route and can provide a more accurate rating plese let me know. Thanks

Comments: I tried to find this climb a few weeks ago and had difficulty figuring out where to begin. We ended up climbing some of the bolted slab routes, and though they were fun I would like to figure out the start for Wally World. IF anyone can help please post up or email me. Thanks
Kirk
