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.

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.

White granite.

Comments: Interestingly, it's hard to hard to hear above the road noise. For those with quiet voices, rope signals or walkie-talkie radios might be good.

Also, the cliff lies nearly straight above the mine buildings, although you zig-zag below and above on trails/road to get there.

Comments: When the route was first submitted, it was listed as something like 20 pitches. It was intended to be sort of a Euro-guide type route where the guide doesn't want to be too far from her client. The numbering on the website changed as most folks didn't do it in so many pitches. I think we did 7-8 pitches. As I recall, 2 of the "pitches" were the 2nd class hikes between the chunks of rock.

Comments: George, using that methodology, we get 11.0 = 10d/11a or 10+/11-. Unfortunately, that rating is not an option on this website at this time.

Comments: You don't have to rappel this formation. There is an exposed 3rd class-ish ramp system going off to the climber's right.

Comments: Hmmm, perhaps a 2 foot strip of duct tape to pad that sharp edge just below the 6th bolt might ease the mind of the weak.

Also, there is now a 2 bolt anchor with links and biners at halfway.

Comments: One thing that might be nice for rope wear would be to move the top anchor down to just below the ledge, at the level of the 8th bolt. Otherwise, you need 2 x 6 foot slings to lower to the mid-anchor and the rope pull is hard on your rope.

New finish up there goes straight up out of the corner to an independent anchor. This should bring us back to the ground a little less left than before. Thor"

Comments: In the dry conditions, I think it is East Gully, and in the wet conditions, it may be a variation of Silk Road.

Comments: Klimbien, there are 2 ways to access this Peak. One is from the West - as per Kaner. The other is from the East as per the original directions. It depends on how much you want to walk vs. how much you want to drive.

Comments: Beware when sitting below this route on a windy day. We got a softball-sized rock bouncing down the gully to the right heading straight for my partner. I deflected it with my hand, but it bruised it up and it's sore.
