Comments: Agree; top is much harder due to hold breakage. Went from fun 5.8 to a cruxy 9+/10a. Such is red choss...things evolve.

Comments: I think most of those bolts are actually totally good. A few of the spinners just need a tap and tighten. IMHO. However, if there is a plan to rebolt it, I think glue-ins are by far a better long term choice for this wall. The matrix is really soft on much of this wall.

Comments: No bolts on top; A #3 and a #4 Camelot can be an anchor for lowering (you could probably use some smaller cams up there too). Very easy walk-off.

Comments: Two stars as of today, but this could clean up into another 4 star classic over time. It's still quite dirty as of today. I broke 2 holds and kicked off a dozen (per my belayer) small pebbles...so it's cleaner now. The DK guide is pretty spot on...there is a definitive crux midway consisting of slopers. It is between bolt 6 and 7. Bolt 6 is hard to see when you are on route. Do this route and help clean it into a 4 star classic.

Comments: The fact that the description above says there is no distinct crux on this route is odd. The moves shortly after the knee bar on the shelf (AKA the crux) are at least V5 and are wayyyy harder than any other section on this route. The other hardish moves are the start, the gravely undercling and the moves by the chain draw...but at best...those sections are V3 (maybe only V2?).

Based upon my experience and those who I have discussed this route with...there is definitely a distinct crux on th... more >>

Comments: Nice little route; you are a true craftsman with the glue-in bolts; others could learn from you. Very nice work.

And a sincere thanks for all the routes you and your wife have established!!!

Comments: Great new route! The start is super hard. The rest is very reasonable for the grade. Lots of variety. Getting into the corner is quite cool.

It's nice to climb such a good route in Rifle that still has some texture! Thanks for the effort here to the FA crew!

Comments: The bolt discussed above has been replaced with a stainless bolt provided by the ASCA. Please remember to donate to the ASCA.

The old bolt came out very easily and the old hole was reused/ redrilled for the new bolt.

Comments: There are quite a few spinners at the pipeline. Most are clearly still bomber and the spin could be fixed with a slight hammer tap and a light tightening (but are not dangerous as is). However, I think the bolt before the crux on this route could actually need replacing. It's in some softer matrix, sticks out about 1/4-1/2 inch and the hole is slightly eroded near the edge. The bolt is a 2.25 inch by 3/8" powers.

Comments: So classic and so unusual for Maple! Bouldery yet long...powerful yet technical...a fine line and hard for 12c IMHO! Worthwhile!! One of my favorites!

Comments: Grant, Those signs must be new. The marked parking was the paved pullouts (maybe 100 yards before the big tree and closer to the visitor center) and not the area by the big tree at the start of the hike (that area has always been posted as no parking). If the pullouts are now marked as no parking...that's a new thing (and pretty consistent with some other odd-ball parking closures/destructions {i.e. Filling in the old cathedral rock parking with 4ft of dirt/rock} up there in recent years).

Comments: Totally agree with the description. I bet this was a great 5.10 when it was bolted 30 years ago (1985)! It is now probably the most polished route in the world every hold squeaks its so slippery. Given 6A (5.10A) in the new (black) guide! Probably closer to 11A in its current condition!

Comments: There is a large bee colony living in the hole with the small tree in it as of 4-17-2015. Hundreds of bees there. They were docile, but wise to avoid this route and the one to the right.

Comments: Far left route at Can Verdures 5.11D; Shares anchor with Baginades (10D).
Not too good. Small hold crux and a cruxy clip.
