Comments: From Bev Baker:

Date: Feb. 3, 2014

BOULDER, Colo. The Boulder Ranger District of the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests implemented its annual area closures at Security Risk, Eagle Rock, Blob Rock, and Bitty Buttress in Boulder Canyon on February 1 to protect golden eagles during their nesting season.

These areas are located along State Highway 119 approximately 1.5 miles east of Boulder Falls. Happy Hour, Bihedral, and Riviera will remain open, as long as visitors stay out of th... more >>

Comments: JD1984, there can be one. All it takes is someone to do so. I never climbed ice in MA. If you are inspired, have at it!

Edit: if you want, I can start it for you...like we did in Colorado's section.

Comments: Geoff, you're right, it's more than 150 yards. It's probably 10 minutes west if you basically contour at approximately the same level as the west (left) side of the crag. Maybe it's 500-600 yards? From what I can recall, you can get a glimpse of the top of it pretty shortly after contouring west. Note, the Upper Wall is a bit higher up the hill, probably another 10 minutes and maybe another 400 yards uphill.

Comments: Tristan, they used them as ascenders in situations where we didn't plan on ascending using them. They were slings for leading. They ascended or tried to ascend vertical/overhanging terrain, they didn't hold, they slid down the rope using them...much to their chagrin.

Comments: Ozman, we could move the routes to the Camp Bird Road subarea; however, we can't move the area under Camp Bird Road, because you can't have subareas and routes at the same level in the hierarchy on this website.

If we think it is best to move these routes, then we lose the Hall of Just page.

I hope this makes sense.

Comments: Thanks for the reply. That second line from the left looks yellow to me. I edited in the change and added the route to the L->R.

Comments: Which line is it in the picture? I see a blue, yellow, orange/red, and purple line. I was trying to do the L->R sorting.

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.


Location: CO : Golden : Clear Creek Canyon : Prestige Worldwide Wall : Big Ellie's Little Crack (5.7)

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.

Comments: Okay, this one is a slight mystery as to where it is.

Is this the line?

Deb does something that may be 5.6.

The lowest block has been cleaned off. There was a block up and left of the 4th X that came off.

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.
