Comments: This is a really fun route, classic in my book. Very accessible from the Front Range and does not seem to get much traffic. If you are climbing 10+/11- range at Eldo, you should give a try climbing the whole thing free (except the final aid ladder on pitch 6). For those who are into historical fixed pro, there are plenty of interesting finds on both the route and the descent (drilled angles, Star Dryves, chiseled foot holds on Otto's Route, etc.).

Comments: This is a fun, moderate exploration of Redgarden South Buttress. The rock is good and unpolished. It appears to be seldom climbed. Some great jamming in both dihedral sections. There is a good rappel anchor once you reach the Lower Ramp. It is well-hidden and hard to see. Crest the edge of the ramp, and look slightly down and right. This well below the Touch 'n' Go anchor.

Comments: There is a potential direct finish to the rim above the Sex Comedy finish that is cleaning up nicely. We toproped it yesterday. Felt like solid 5.11, and pro would be nominal in the first 30 feet. It would be a burly lead.

Comments: Climbed this fine route yesterday. The hanger on the pitch 4 retro-bolt has been removed but the bolt is still there. The bolt is unnecessary and detracts from the pitch especially given the route history.

Comments: Not to be captain obvious, but test the fixed gear before aiding on it .. I took a thirty footer after failing to test a fixed stopper on pitch 18 or 19. Don't haul! Do it in a single push. We bivied with space blankets at the base and started at 2am, finished at 8pm. Things got slow in the upper aid pitches when the route came into the sun and water was getting slim. No problems with bears. The water from the spring was clean, cool and plentiful. We did not treat. Long day but amazing!

Comments: It is possible to do this route in three pitches with a 60M rope. From the ground, continue up then right to the large tree (shared with Osiris) almost 200 feet. Second pitch, work up and right about 165 feet to a sloping ledge. Then top out by working straight up through the upper headwall just under 200 feet. Makes for a long and efficient route.

Comments: What is the poison ivy beta on the south rim climbs? I've heard it's not as bad as the north rim, but I find it hard to believe.
