Comments: I was just wondering who placed those 3/8" bolts on top? Has anyone ever looked at them? Yes, they are placed properly, but they are also placed on a loose flake. They could have been placed ANYWHERE else and would have been just fine. These routes are not exaclty the safest routes to toprope unless well backed up.

Comments: This is one of those non typical lumpy climb(bulges, vertical). the first crux was way harder than the top crux. switch the 2 cruxes around and give the first one 5.11c. i also remember saying sorry to my fingers after pulling that bulge. very texured rock

Comments: The first pitch is really not that difficult, it just makes you think. For a crack fiend, it is a little less secure considering you are underclinging the pitch. The moves off the belay on the second pitch are hard because you are trying to get away from the all the slings and RPs. The rest is ultra classic.

Comments: Fantastic climbing. A little variety from a tad overhang budge, hands, fingers, offwidth. Good link up to Wolf's Tooth.

Comments: The day I climbed this, it was actually dry. The hardest part about this route is trusting those slimy feet, which look really crappy, but stick believe it or not. This is a pretty bold climb too for any kind of fall on the crux is really bad and you will take a good 10 footer into the dihedral. Good climb.

Comments: This is the best climb I have ever done. It takes superb gear and is sustained thin climbing with a few thank God finger jams. 5.11d, I thought.

Comments: Great climb. A good sustained climb except for the last 20'.

Comments: The roof is certainly hard to figure out. with that much exposure, it's hard to commit to such weird stemming (chimneying) moves. mentally, it's a 5.11 roof. this climb goes by way [too] fast for the quality

Comments: Just curious if anyone has climbed Diagonal or the direct this summer. I was up there 6/28 and the route looked relatively dry(at least for the first 400').

Comments: This has got to be one of the best and only truly splitter cracks around. The second pitch is certainly the crux, but if you have no idea how to jam, you're screwed. The last part of the second pitch is sustained, but it is not all that bad. When the flake peters out, you have about 15-20' of a few 5.10/5.10+ moves to the belay. This climb is worth what everyone says about it, even if it is short.

Comments: I must have climbed this route on a different day that all of you guys, because I thought that this route was THE most glossed over route in the country. I had to chalk up 30 times on the lower part and the crux was not doable........it was not doable. I could not smear. I was extremely disappointed in this route. 5.13a on glossy days.

Comments: This was my first climb in boulder canyon and I felt it was one of the coolest finger cracks around. the crux is full on tips jamming(possible 11a)and actually took good gear. the falcon guide book gives it the "s" rating, which I totally diasagree with. Great finger crack!!!

Comments: This thing is spicy! The whole thing is on dime edges with small positive crimps. Certainly not for the aspiring 5.10 leader (not unless you do not fear the whip, 20-30 footers, that is).

Comments: Some fairly delicate foot work for a 10a. not pumpy, but delicate.

Comments: Kind of a taxing lead (placing gear in your only holds), but man, it is sweet. It needs to longer. Take some small RPs and small TCUs or a green Alien.

Comments: The second pitch of outlander is most definitely 10d. There are a couple really precarious moves to some steep bomber finger locks but those whole thing is pretty sustained.

Comments: This is a great crack! The headwall is very well protected and is ceratainly desperate for about 3 or 4 moves. great climb. onsight!

Comments: If debating whether to lead or to TR this, you should consider leading because the TR fall is a nasty cheese-grate swing into the Cackle Crack dihedral at the 11a crack. The pitons at the crux are close together as well which are really not that bad, but old. Really tough crux.

Comments: From what I remember, this route is quite sustained. I remember feeling that this was pretty tough for a 10a sport route.

Comments: I am extremely excited to do this climb and the word "bold" is what is attracting me to it. Could someone elaborate a little more on gear? Is this a very popular climb or do people usually get scared by even looking at it?

Comments: Did the Cables in September and for the most part, the route is rather icy or wet. Another variation does exist without the eye bolts just to the left. A small, left facing dihedral falling off the Diamond/Chasm Wall eats up nuts and goes at about 5.5. With this season being a wet one, this route might be the one for the summer for the rock climbers.
