Comments: I remember bumping into Buzz, after he just downclimbed Gorrels. My knowledge of the area (none), the appearance of a line (questionable) and the description of his moves (devious) made me curious, but cautious. Today, I scoped it out from the bottom, and it indeed went super fine. A great soloable line from the bottom of the Notch, to the top of the Beaver (or vice versa!). The move on the flake is def. the highlight, although the jamming in the crack system is also pretty fun. The views from t... more >>


Location: CO : CO Ice & Mixed : RMNP - Mixed/Ice : Long's Peak/Mt. Meeker Cirq... : Kiener's Route (5.3 Easy Snow)

Comments: Absolute classic.

Upper portions of Kiener's have great variations - you don't have to trend up and right, if you don't want to. Doing so, will lead you to easier ground after the third crux (chock stone), but if you follow your nose up after the wet chimney (crux #2), there's Choose Your Own Adventure climbing all around you.

Stay between the R side of the Notch Couloir and the "Little Notch", for more sustained scrambling on ledges and slabs. With intelligent route finding, you can k... more >>

Comments: Awesome route for the slabmonger! We decided to cut up a social trail, before hitting the talus pile of the main trail and right after the turnoff for East Face Direct, partly because RMR had a operation going on and were holding up traffic near the talus. Our first pitch on a 70m didn't quite make it to Baker's Way from where we started the first belay, which makes me believe we started a little too low. Next time, I'd just take the actual trail, and head off it, exactly as Brian describes. Tha... more >>


Location: CO : Boulder : Flatirons : North : Second Flatiron : Dodge Block (5.0)

Comments: Although routes on the Flatirons are pretty "Choose Your Adventure", I think Dodge Block does not share the same walk off as Freeway but instead puts you in a gully just west and up from where you walk off on Freeway. One side of the gully you exit in Dodge Block is the Pullman Car.

Comments: It's a funky route, as you start on Freeway (which itself starts a little lacking on holds, polished, and grubby), then eases off in steepness. If you stay as left as possible on the rib, it's easy to, uh, "Exit" into area between the Freeway route and the South Block, making the ascending traverse towards the trees and above the chimney-ish part seem a little more natural.

Once you go around the Pullman Car, it seems that you should try to keep on the south side of this block, but it's much e... more >>
