Comments: Gear recommendation - singles from blue Alien to #2 Camalot, single set nuts. The #2 can be placed in the horizontal before gaining the upper headwall. Definitely a worthy route.

Comments: I thoroughly enjoyed this route - STEEP friction at some of its finest. Next time, I'd climb Funky Bolt and hang the 4th bolt with a longer draw to take some sting out of making that reachy clip.

Comments: I placed a medium nut before the last bolt. You could also place a medium/large nut after the last bolt. Gear really isn't necessary, but it's nice if you're pumped. Excellent rock climb.

Comments: Route update: new righthand anchor bolt and new chain on P2 of Pony Express. We made it so that you can equalize your rope in two directions: either rap straight down to the ground from the lowest chain links (80m rope required?) or rap the Pony Express corner to the P1 anchor by using the quicklinks on the right chain.

Comments: This is a worthwhile route for the obscure tour. I'd recommend bringing plenty of RPs and small nuts. I placed a #4 Camalot at the nest of slings in the bottom of the OW before starting the traverse. A baggy 0.5 or tight 0.75 fits okay at the crux. I was able to get a good green Alien right after that.

Comments: Bring all your .5s for this radical rock climb. It was awesome!

Recommend: 1 x grey Alien, 4-5 x red Aliens/orange Metolius, 5-7 x .5s, 1 x .75, 1 x #1

Comments: This is a fun and worthwhile route, but it is not sustained. The crux is probably pulling onto the face. Save a #2 and 0.5 for the horizontal about 2/3 of the way up.

Comments: I'd recommend bringing some small cams and a single set of nuts for the traverse. I placed green C3 to grey Alien and a medium nut. I didn't have a purple C3, but one may have gone in.

Comments: I thought this was a totally cool route with great position on the arete and cryptic moves. Josh mentions it in the description, but I'll reiterate that you take the juggy hand traverse left from Pony Express (do not continue up the right-facing corner). Place a finger-sized piece at the end of the traverse as you start to move up toward the first bolt. There's a sizable runout between 1st and 2nd bolts, but it's easy climbing. I found the crux to be clipping the 3rd bolt, so having the draws pr... more >>

Comments: Hey Steve, there's a fixed nut where the 0.75 goes right now, so that's what my partner clipped with a long sling before starting the traverse. I agree - that was a rowdy core shot for a pretty standard fall!


Location: CO : Gunnison : Black Canyon of the Gunniso... : South Rim Routes : Black Snake (5.11)

Comments: Get your burl on for this one! Black Snake is a quality 5.11 rock climb, with no pitch being a gimme. We were happy with doubles from black Alien to #2, 3 x #3, 1 x old #3.5, 1 x new #4, 1 x new #5, single set nuts. It's not a desert splitter, so the sizes in the bigger ranges are flexible. Even thought this climb has only 8 pitches, I'd recommend giving yourself plenty of daylight. It's on 'til the end!

Comments: Approach: from the Visitor's Center, park in a small, right-side pullout at the 20mph curvy road sign in between Devil's Lookout and Chasm View Overlook. A well-trodden trail descends right from here down the Chillumstone Gully. Descend several hundred feet down the gully (takes longer than you might expect), until you get cliffed out. Locate a rappel anchor on the right wall with a fixed line (didn't need 2 ropes as it turned out). From this rappel anchor, you can scope Blackjack, which is acro... more >>

Comments: This route is absolutely stellar! The line ascends a shield of crisp red rock, starting in pebbles and then launching into thin face that would've looked blank without the preexisting chalk. The climbing was reminiscent of Fire and Ice in Eldo - footy, sequential, and difficult. Lots of shade!
