Comments: I cleaned out a placement out of the mud for gear on the a1 section, after I hung. This will provide a handhold now. The summit mantle is 5.10+ish and getting to the a1 section is 5.10+ish. :) Probably R, maybe not. Mantle of doom is on petrified cobble crumbs. Sort of like mixed climbing. Distributing your weight evenly. Still upset, I didn't free it. Worthy route!

Comments: Joe, I got a topo from Crusher when he did the second ascent. This topo being a copy of the grades he gave the pitches with updated drawings. (Of course, I doubt he knew the FA team graded it a2+ at the time) But Id agree keeping the grades the same as what the FA gave them. Keep the mystery high. Cheers

Comments: Absolutely amazing route. I found P1 harder technically but easier to OS. With no fixed pins on p2 (funky but good enough gear instead) and a devious crux, gravity took a hold. Not bad once you get the sequence. Remember the RPs and a black Alien. That hand crack at the top is mostly fingers and 0.75.

Comments: I got sandbagged by the FA team and by Joe Forresters description. Does that mean its a double sandbag? That mantle on the summit pitch is probably my most memorable mantel. Bolts are really eroding fast up there. Thanks to Joe, Jeremy, and Paul for the never ending sandbagging. :) (the pitch lengths were spot on) Quite an epic experience for us. A2+.....hahahahahahah classic. :) Great time with Derek Wolfe


Citadel looks pretty awesome for A2+ too..... ;) cheers dudes

Comments: You don't need really much gear. Bring the smallest TCUs...and do the right 5.9 finish. So good!

Anyone else do the mantel straight to the anchor? I'm guessing people traverse around left and top out. I did the other mantel. I had a big foothold break. Almost whipped. That would've been bad.

Comments: This has to be one of the best 12s in the canyon. Better and tougher than Convicted Felon. Those crimps are so cool! Thanks to the the FA team for the find.

Comments: Great route. The direct way above the bolt on p3 is really cool. One exciting move of 10dish then jugs to the good gear. I thought the mental crux was p5. The peg pitch with some committing 5.10 moves but not too bad. Just spicy enough. We crossed over to the far left into the FA 5.10 ow. Which was short, had a wasp nest but was juggy! So cool. Worth doing!

Comments: Someone needs to add a couple bolts on that pitch. Whoever goes up next. It's "R" until that happens imo. Such a great pitch to not have updated hardware. A real classic. It only needs 3 or 4. Maybe every 4th be a nice bolt? Would be cool for it to all have some spice, but be semi safe. Because you would rip out 50 percent of those bolts or more if you fell. That last pitch may be the most unique free pitch in the desert? So cool!

Comments: We had some problems and had to cut a rope on the first rappel. Watch out on letting your rope go into the wide crack on the ledge before the summit. One ina million chance. ...but it happened to us

Comments: Killer route. Very much physical. P1 is really worth doing. Great 5.9. No need to skip it. P2 is burly! But so classic. P3 felt quite stoudt for the grade. P5 was great but kind of scary. The summit view is one of the best I've experienced. You're way above washer woman! A #4 big bro was pretty handy to have. As well as a #5.

Comments: Nicola, I think we saw some chalk from you guys on route. Funny!

On P7, we experienced confusion even after prior knowledge. For what it's worth, we went up that wet, mossy, right-slanting crack. Right when it got wide, we made a committing couple moves left to a small dihedral with not really a ton of gear, but the moves are easy in the dihedral. I felt the traverse to be 5.11a, but I think I grabbed the wrong holds. We found no hidden crack. So this perhaps adds even more confusion on this p... more >>

Comments: Brushing against poison ivy has never bothered me in the Black Canyon, but I guess it did here. That was the crux for me. I'm currently suffering from it all over. The route is great. The ivy...not so much.

Comments: I really think this is one of the cooler routes in RMNP. So varied, great belays, steep, and great exposure. Like others previously stated, p1 is hardly a warm-up for p2. So get ready for a flash pump. Pitch 6 was definitely the rope management and maybe mental crux of the route but also the best pitch on the route I thought. So good! The last pitch was so much fun as well.

I found brass offsets were way better than RPs. Using them multiple times, including protecting the 10a R runout near ... more >>

Comments: Definitely my favorite route that I've done in The Black, just for the overall experience. Couple things though. The rappels are shitty, kind of like the Diamond rappels, except with more things to get your rope stuck, especially the 4th rappel. Next time, I'd have a ride arrangement and take the Cruise Gully. Second, take the two pitch variation. That should be the normal way to go. Really, really good. P2 is almost 200 ft of 5.11cish. So good. The crux for JJ and I was burly. Easy to get lost... more >>
