Comments: I'm guessing the angle makes it look weird, but it appears the belayer is anchored to the 2 bolt anchor with chains ~60' up.

Comments: It's still shedding. Sewing this up: #3.5 Camalot, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 2, red Alien. If you want to make it a touch harder, move left at the obvious jug/horizontal crack and do the arete briefly.

Comments: Thanks for pointing this out. As a result, I've edited in some changes to this section to incorporate the South, Middle, and North forks. I will incorporate the Dry St. Vrain fork in, too.

It was great to get out and climb there with you. Thanks for sharing this!

Comments: If that is a Dyneema or Spectra sling, be wary of using it for protection purposes due to its low melting point and friction likely generated using it for aiding.

Comments: From Jim Detterline:

The only other ice route that I did in the Hwy 36 corridor was behind a Rev. ? house just northwest of Pinewood Springs. It was high up on the hill behind the Rev.'s house in a dihedral, and was short (60'?) and difficult (WI5?) - sorry but I didn't have time to do a thorough search of my journals tonight. The climb itself was on US Forest Service land, and to be considerate to the Rev. (who wasn't home anyway), I hike a long way around to get to the climb. This one ... more >>

Comments: This is a forwarding of an email that Jim Detterline provided:

Thanks for sharing this ice climb news with me. It brings back old memories!

I first climbed it on March 11, 1994, but this was not the first ascent. According to my journal, I was told of this route by Lawrence Stuemke, former CMS guide who had done a lot of new rock routes in the Estes Park area at that time. A guy that I named only as "Andy" working at Komito Boots gave me the specific directions to this climb, which no o... more >>

Comments: Distant memories when I chatted with Jim Detterline a number of years back...I think he told me about 3-4 little pitches he had done along this way.

Comments: There is a chance that Jim Detterline has done this. He's told me about a number of short ice pitches he had done along the way between Lyons & Estes Park. This sounds like one of them.

Comments: This may be the line Greg Sievers mentioned in a comment / conditions bit. If so, he said he has never seen it come in before this year despite going there yearly, at least.

Comments: The third pitch as described here seems to have cleaned up enough to make it reasonable and fun to climb. There is a left hand chip that flexes somewhere near where you reach out right to the rounded arete, maybe at 1/3 height. That feature out left of the last bolt shifts. It seems to be a detached bit of rock. Not wanting to harm my belayer, I left it alone. Be careful not to pry it outward with your left hand or foot.
