We rapped off the third fin with a 60m, after Gonzo and V3. You rap over V3. this stretches you to the top of the detached block at the bottom, separating the two climbs. You get to do fun chimney dow

Comments: When you get to the top of the first pitch (past the bolts at the tree and up through the slot, to the perch behind the small tower); look right and you'll see a short hand/fist crack facing you in a dihedral.
It's not listed anywhere, but it takes pro well, is relatively clean, probably goes at 5.7, and also takes you to the summit via another interesting and wandering line. Move your belay down below this crack onto a lower perch and try this crack. It's a fun variation if you've a... more >>

Comments: No ice on it today. Might suggest waiting for at least a little ice...unless you're a gamblin' man!

Comments: This is a great route. I found the bottom three bolts to be thought provoking and balance intensive; while the top is powerful for an onsight.
As far as the grade, I'd say it's .11a if Free Willie is, which I found to be considerably less difficult.

Comments: Pitch two is very wet (dicey) on the slab moves. Maybe clean the grass out of the nice crack on pitch two of Lazy Sunday and climb that instead...might prove to be a bit more gratifying. Cheers.

Comments: When you get to this climb, turn and look across the canyon. You will see Animal World, a clean and challenging crag. That is where you should've gone, hahaha. Unless you like smearing lichen and crimping moss.
If you do find yourself in need of a dirty adventure, bring screwlinks and place them on the bolts at the second belay (there are no rap rings here, but there should be, as it is the most sensible way to rap...from the top, to the second belay, to the ground...with a 60m).

Comments: Has anyone ever done or attempted any route on the south face, that is north and to the east of The Thumb? It looks to be about 600' vertical, leading up to The Thumb, and to broken summits, east of The Divide. I cannot find any info on anyone having climbed it, but I continuously think of putting something up there. It's remote, but it looks to be beautiful stone for the Indian Peaks.

Comments: Guys and gals, I hate to say this out loud, but I dropped a tool out there today. It has black tape along the shaft and five wraps of grip tape near the head. I will be out there searching for it as much as possible until I find it. However, if you find it, please contact me. I would be glad to recover it. Thank you so much. (720) 340-0930.

Comments: The bashie, his aiders are hanging on to the left of him, is gone. I ripped it months after this photo. If I remember right, it was the second of three bashies to cross that headwall...more fun for the future!
