Comments: This is an awesome climb. We got lucky and found an incredible bivy pretty much completely rain proof under what would've been a sweet boulder problem, as we got to Sky Pond in the dark, it was level and had a nice bed of comfy dirt with no rocks. We woke up at 4 am and started climbing around 5, which proved to be the deciding factor for the summit as the party behind us had to rappel from the 6th pitch because of threatening rain clouds. We left our boots about 200 feet to the right of the sta... more >>

Comments: I have been waiting for a line like this for a while. Beautiful even if pin scarred. This is the only climb that I've been able to pull "THE SPACKER" on. A Must. No grease when I went there, but I was there around 7 pm or later using a headlamp.

Comments: Bob D'Antonio your guidebook is priceless. I love how you incorporated the history of Boulder Canyon, as well as color coding trad and sport routes among other things. Thanks for the effort.

Comments: Easiest way to get back to your gear after ascent is to rappel off the rings about 20 yards to the right of the top out. 60m got me right to the bottom. Mother #1 was awesome. I hokey pokied with my left hand in. Definitely a humbling 5.7+.

Comments: I really enjoy guide books that not only show the routes in fine detail, but add on that touch of antiquity and nostalgia through historic recaption of the area. So far it looks pretty sick.

Comments: Probably the best overhanging 5.9 in Boulder Canyon. Fun and pretty clean now, I didn't kick off any choss on the lower section. Finding it's a little bit of a chore though. Just keep going around to the right side of the area.

Comments: The Ratings are really variable here and a little stiff. I would rate this a 5.10d. Definitely one of "THE" routes to do here. Get your crimpers ready for a featured sloper.

Comments: This route was sick. A great warm-up for some of the harder stuff in the area, Super Long, and mostly sustained 5.7.

Comments: This is my type of climbing here. Hard to reach jugs, the odd shifting of weight, mm mmmm. I do agree that this is harder than 10d though, I'd say bump it up to 11b. Possible ground fall for the first two bolts, stick clip or know your shit.

Comments: It seems there are two or three more bolted lines past the Gully Wash/Wet Dreams bolts now. I only had time for one and it was well bolted, and a really fun moderate (5.9+-5.10a) route. It was not the next one over from those bolts but the one after that. Bring 11 quickdraws.

Comments: Checked out the access to the area today, and I did not see any No Trespassing signs. I did however see signs warning hikers and fishermen to stay along the riverside trails as well as private property signs stating No Camping or Fires. I accessed the area from two different points, just out of curiosity. First from the pullover that goes in to the steep gully, which doesn't really allow access to the trail across the river, and second from the small pullover just a thousand feet past the previo... more >>
