Comments: It's a minor correction, but if you look at the notation in the photo, it says "Seiver's Tower" not "Siever's Tower." Greg would notice the difference.

Comments: Kevin, "the crags" refer to subareas and not to routes (although a few subareas include routes by the same name). At these subareas, there are routes. Click on the subareas on the left to see the routes.

Comments: Rob, gear will help limit the runout at the top, as suggested in the Protection section above.

Comments: Placing gear before the 1st bolt helps limit this risk. Greg Hand suggested this in the Protection section above.

Comments: Yes, it changed much after the flake was cleaned off. Before, we climbed around the flake not wanting to knock it off and kill either of us. Plus, it was seeping a bit.

Comments: From the Denver Post, the landmanagers do not want people to walk behind the waterfall. It has high impact on the limited resources. Sorry.

Comments: 2 chains, if you click on the "view full size", you'll see that they indicated the purple means "seasonal closure" areas. Those are just west of Tunnel 1 in the Stumbling Block vicinity and just east of Tunnel 2, in the New River Wall vicinity. Also, FWIW, the Tunnel 2 area recently was opened for all users.

Comments: FWIW, there were at least 5 waterfalls going that day. This one was the biggest and provided a cooling mist reminiscent of some waterfall in Hawaii! Now just think if they froze....

Comments: Yes, running a rope over any sling is very, very risky. Running a rope over a low melting point sling is even more so!

Comments: FWIW, I don't think we were ever left of the bolt line. It's just a slab move up high that you had to trust your left foot on for one move.

Comments: The one thing that helped with the mid-route roof is to think bigger moves from jug to jug, not the little movements of a slab climber. For the start, I tried from the right...unclean and sketchy feeling. Addendum: I did it again and hand cleaned it. Still loose holds, but it goes ~5.10 R. I didn't try traversing in from the left. That might make the start feel easier. We started below the 1st bolt.
