Location: CO : Boulder : Eldorado Canyon SP : Redgarden Wall : Redgarden - Tower One : Icarus (5.6 R)

Comments: Climbed this today. I disagree with those saying it's not so cool. It's awesome! Started with the West Chimney for P1, then a short traverse (more of a scramble then a climb) to Icarus. Two pitches on Icarus, not easy, some fun moves, but not real hard either. Final pitch, the Yellow Spur arete, is totally awesome - delightfully terrifying exposure and views.
Getting down was a long downclimb, 4th or EZ 5th class, and I didn't like it. I would rather have sprouted eagle wings and just flown off ... more >>

Comments: Hands down the most awesome Wind Tower climb I've done (but I've never done more than 5.6, Calypso ). I think the rating of 5.5 is a bit generous, I would give this a solid 5.6. Mostly classic Wind Tower climbing, but a few tricky moves are what make it fun. Took a fall of the overhang/roof starting P2, that was cool. Definitely a repeater.

Comments: Did this 1st time last week, 4 pitches with alternate routes. The "crux" for me was a chimney on P3!For P1 did ZOT route. The traverse and crack are awesome! But I didn't think too difficult.The best part (fun, exposure, views) was the last pitch Rebuffat's Arete. Definitely a repeater!!!colorado-hiking.net/rewritten1...

Comments: Did this over weekend, 1st time. Challenging right at beginning before crack. Crack is cool, then gone to a smooth slab with no holds. Always expect the unexpected - I like that! I dispute the rating - this is a solid 5.6 IMHO. colorado-hiking.net/dome1.html

Comments: I did this 1st time last week; I would simply second most of the comments here. It wasn't difficult, I thought the 1st pitch was EZ, everyone says it is the crux. 2nd and 3rd pitches tripped me up a little. AWESOME climb! What is this talk of greasy 1st pitch? I had no problem and I don't even use chalk. colorado-hiking.net/bastille1....

Comments: Did this 5/31/05. It was my first "real" tech rock climb after taking the "Intro Rock Intensive" course from Colorado Mountain School. It is rated 5.6, but I thought the climbing was rather easy, save for just a couple funky spots. It is a workout - 6 full pitches to the ridge, then scrambling across to the South tip for rap down - the most fun part. The views from the rock are totally awesome and the experience of being on such a huge rock - only other climbers can appreciate it. I rate this mo... more >>
