Comments: Based upon the above comments, I've gone ahead and reassigned this to Mark for editing.

Comments: Kevin, what area is this? It looked like quite the approach.

Comments: There was a great article from 2/26/15 about this "kid", Michael Grab, in the Denver Post that can be found here. He's been doing this since 2008.

Comments: FWIW, I think I climbed this some years back. I recall the 5.9 roof bit. I recall there being some things to be careful with as there were rafters going past below to avoid with cleaning that we'd ordinarily do. Vaguely, it seemed like it had been climbed previously. Beyond that, the memory blurs....

Addendum: as I recall, the first time I was on this wall, I recall seeing scattered pitons and such thinking, I bet Layton was here. Funny, he was, and he probably never named these various lin... more >>

Comments: We left a #2 (?) BD stopper fixed near the top. It seems fighting to get this wire out would likely bust the wires of the stopper and mess up the placement. Consider leaving the wire to preserve the protection option if you climb this. Clipping this to an orange Alien 2 feet below can combat outward forces on it if you load it.

Comments: Since we only have the FA by possible first name, which makes it hard to ask for the intended spelling, I'm going to make an adminstrator decision and switch it to (the likely intended spelling) "Beowulf" until the FA comes out and declares that he/she wanted it to be intentionally misspelled. I'll lean towards a typo rather than ignorance until proven otherwise. Thanks for understanding.

Comments: William, the 5.6 comment above by Richard is in reference to the middle section of the route. The description seems fine. Folks climb this and other routes in a multitude of ways. Also, the discussion above leaves an understanding of the history of the route.

Comments: Mark, thanks for the clarification. You seem to be reading in more meaning than there is. The description is as we found it. The rock's quality makes it less appealing than 90+% of Boulder Canyon's routes. As I wrote, some may like it. As you described in that clipping block pulling off, holds still crumble on this route. A warning as such is warranted. There are many better routes in the canyon, including many of yours, Mark.

Comments: Mark, that sounds familiar, but my notes don't have that much detail. It was a funky area with all the bolt chopping, bolting the flake, etc.

Comments: Jim, I think this is one where the photo gives an optical illusion. That "hanger" is likely a carabiner attached to a bolt which is likely hidden from view by a small dihedral. If you click on "View Full Size", you may be able to distinguish that.

Comments: FWIW, I thought it was reach/height-dependent. A shorter climber like my partner that day had a much harder time than I did.

Comments: Alternatively, an orange Alien/#0.75 Camalot can be used. Nice route.

Comments: Alternatively, a red Alien and a green Alien can be used between the 3rd-to-last and 2nd-to-last bolts.

Comments: In my opinion, you can easily make arguments either way. I think it'll be easier to find as you have entered it here.

Comments: Jim, good points. FWIW, we had just done what we understood to be Left Standard a week or two prior to this route. We followed features and descriptions, and we even found gear which matched Left Standard information. In fact, we drew on one of the topos submitted for Left Standard. I'm guessing P1 may be shared with a left-most variation of Left Standard. Also, there is no way that anyone would do what we did as P2 and call it 5.3.

Edit: looking closer, your red line is one Deb considered... more >>

Comments: JVM, idiot writing here...it means it's a crag probably best for non-beginners and non-high end climbers...which means I would recommend it for the mean +/- 2 SD part of the two tailed curve of climbers.

Comments: GDW, thanks for the input. Oddly, p 272 of Rossiter's 1999 Rock Climbing Boulder Canyon guide lists Heat Wave as having 3 bolts, protecting with RPs, climbing an arete, and being a 5.10c. This little route climbs a face mostly, has 7 bolts, and is not 5.10. The bolts look newer than 1999, too. My guess is that it is newer than that.
