Location: CO : Boulder : Boulder Canyon : Happy Hour Crag : The Great Race (5.9+)

Comments: It seemed as if the path of least resistance is, once you get pro to start, to be just left of the dihedral for a couple moves utilizing some small footholds on that little face to get started. Then, you can reach around into the dihedral. Going straight up in the dihedral to start seemed forced.

Comments: We cleaned off a decent bit of dirt and some loose rocks in the crack on this one, but there's still quite a bit of dirt in the upper crack. There are a couple wiggly flakes in the crack that'll probably come out with a hammer. You can definitely scramble off to the right and join the usual PWWW walkoff.

Is this the line?

Comments: The starting hold may have fallen off, probably a casualty of the rain.

Comments: Jay, actually Rain Delay is 10 feet left of this photo. They are distinct lines that are ~10 feet apart, parallel to each other. Sorry for the confusion.

Comments: Jay, for what it is worth, these 2 lines, Drowned Rat and Rain Delay, are entirely distinct lines. They parallel each other and are separated by about 10 feet. Sorry for the confusion.

Comments: The chalked up chockstone-like holds down at the lower crux came out today, perhaps loosened by the rain. It still goes. A red Loweball was nice at the lower crux. This sews up pretty well, except for the lower crux.


Location: CO : Alpine Rock : Tenmile Range

Comments: Okay, in concept, having this area separate from 10 Mile Canyon is logical. Moving Quandary Peak here is a bit problematic as there would be a child - parent incompatibility (i.e. you can't have areas and routes at the same level in the hierarchy for the website). If we make yet another sub-area for the 10 Mile Traverse, then we can put Quandary Peak at that level. You'll need an admin to do this minor reorganization once we have the sub-area under Tenmile Range for Tenmile Traverse.

Comments: Doug, yes. I moved it to Aerial Solution. Hope that is right.

Sorry that it isn't clear, but you don't have to delete child objects to move. However, it does take an admin to move it. It wasn't completely clear that this belonged to Aerial Solution. So much looks so similar there. Given the original poster didn't edit a change in the text to say "Aerial Solution" and only one person, albeit a very knowledgeable Slim, commented "Aerial Solution". I was just waiting to be sure.

Comments: As many of you know, it's really hard to get a single local ethic, such a stated ethic probably represents a minority of experienced locals. Obviously, with the popularity of climbing certain routes, toproping and lowering through hardware such as the above necessitates more frequent hardware replacement and compromised safety for others until such replacement by motivated and financial capable folks occur. So, when in doubt, consider toproping through your own carabiners and rapping after you... more >>

Comments: FWIW, once you have child objects (like comments for a photo), you can't just click/hover over edit and delete. It requires deleting all the comments, too. Once you have a situation like that, it takes an admin to remove it. If you think about it, it makes sense to do things that way. Otherwise, you might get petulant folks who want to maliciously delete chunks of the database, which has unfortunately happened before.


Location: CO : Boulder : Flatirons : Central : Skunk Canyon : ... : Better than Love (5.5)
By: Leo Paik When: Aug 30, 2013

Comments: This is an interesting pitch. There really aren't any great features to necessarily follow; however, there is this line of huecos in the middle of this face that draws the eye. I'm guessing it is the steepness of this section on jugs that make it "better than" Love. Note, you have to get creative with pro in this stretch, and it's better not to flame out or fall here, as it might not be pretty. Think Gunks and you'll be okay. It was 180' to a ledge.

Comments: From Kelly Cordes:

I live in Estes Park and was thinking about my weekend plans and had forgotten about the road closures up here on Saturday for the pro bicycling race. I glanced at a few links and maps, and on the NPS RMNP page it mentioned that Lumpy Ridge and RMNP access will be shut down most of the day. Climbers will probably want to know this. in looking at the map, I think that access to the Monastery will probably be closed or limited as well. Basically, all kinds of stuff around the E... more >>

Comments: This route actually angles left the entire time. It finishes up 180' near the base of The Bihedral and is mostly a face climb. What is described here is a different route.

Comments: Steven, there is a decent forum post going on this topic. To summarize: this is not an official trail in the eyes of the National Forest Service and getting official sanction to do such would occur on a different time scale than at Eldorado Canyon State Park. We have it so good at Eldo.

Comments: I was curious if anyone has ventured out on the white granite along CR 344 to Cottonwood Lake? On a short hike and touch, it seemed more solid than it looked.
