Comments: Route has intermixed snowfields and near vertical (WI 2-3). Some patches where snow has melted out but GREAT conditions for the most part. Mixed climbing. Entire route can be protected with rock gear, though a short screw may be helpful.

Comments: Good overhanging aid (A1 due to long moves?) practice spot. The bolts remove most of the groundfall potential. There are definitely a couple of reachy placements. Fun!

Comments: "Fixed" gear still in place at crux. SO MUCH FUN! The crux protects perfectly with a purple Camalot from the stance before you start the lieback. The hardest part of this route was the belly flop above the crux to where you will build your anchor.

!!!

This route taught me that I should never leave home without my tricams....

Comments: CAREFUL. Not only does this climb only have one bolt anchors, THE BOLT DOESN'T HAVE A HANGER RIGHT NOW. There is another anchor about 10 feet lower and out onto the east face of the Ironing Board, but it is aligned for a rap to the east, and a 70m rope does not reach the ground. WARNING WARNING WARNING. NO HANGER. NO WAY TO RAPPEL.

The threads on the bolt look new, but bring a hanger and nut on your next ascent.

Comments: To echo other comments here, this is a heady lead or solo. The first two pitches have some spots where the good holds are few and far between. The climb will be runout regardless, but I think the key to avoiding terrain that is too blank is to move farther left into the next small crack. I avoided the crux below the first small tree by going far left to a large flake and liebacking up from there. If you get off route, you had better be prepared to hold your stance for a while until you find... more >>

Comments: Climbed on June 7th (photos to come later).

The snow is near perfect from base to summit (firm not wet, perfect for kicking steps). There is a discontinuity about 1/3rd of the way up that can be avoided by some easy scrambling to climber's left.

There is a large gap between the top of Skywalker and the bottom of the Leia finish. The gap can only be passed by climbing 10' of rock on climber's right. In mountain boots and crampons, I would guess that the rock moves go at 5.4 or so (in app... more >>

Comments: I got my first taste of clean aid on this route this weekend. Really fun moves with consistently good gear.

To all the trad leaders, my hat goes off to you.

Comments: Did this route on 11/4/12. We did the approach from Solitude Lake, leaving the car ~4AM. Getting to the saddle with Arrowhead was not too difficult, though cold and windy. Once we were on the arete, early season snow on the rock slabs made for scary soloing. We roped up 3 pitches before the as the sun was setting. We did (3) 35m rappels to get us to walking terrain to get to Stoneman Pass. The descent from Stoneman was a long, snowy downclimb where we were nearly cliffed out numerous times... more >>

Comments: The app's functionality and interface are great; I think this will be a very useful tool at some point. My chief complaint with the Android app is that it cannot be stored on the SD card of my phone. Since this app takes up a lot of space, it is not practical to use unless I can move it off my phone; I have a ton of other apps that also require space on my phone's memory. If you fix this, I will pay whatever you charge for access to all my favorite areas!

Comments: My friend and I did this yesterday and were nearly turned back; the first cave-like feature you see when you pass between the portions of the Third Stratum has collapsed. We decided, thankfully, to keep going and look for the rest of the route, only to find that the actual cave in the route description is the SECOND cave-like feature up the hill, and it is not caved in.

After the cave, the rest of the route is mixed scrambling and hiking. The route description in the Flatirons Guide... more >>

Comments: Beautiful and easy climbing. Lots of pitches to practice your trad placements on. My partner and I started slightly left of center at the toe of the buttress and ended up on an "interesting" third pitch. There is a lieback crack between two completely blank walls. My partner did it as a difficult offwidth. The topo for the route on Supertopo labels this area as "not recommended"; i'd call it 5.10 at least.

At the chimney there was a minor bottleneck but at the belay station for... more >>

Comments: Be especially careful when climbing in this area. My friend pulled a 600 lb chunk off just left of Bosch Blanket Bingo with almost no effort. If I had been distracted for a second by something else, I would be a pancake. As it was, I got away with a minor ankle injury and a bloodstream full of adrenaline.
