Comments: Hi Wes,
I have done both problems numerous times, and I would guess for your height this would not be a difficult problem. Soft 7 is quite a stretch for the downgrade, and 8 for the sit clearly points to a reach advantage. To even things out, try off-routing the big holds on the right, and let me know what you think :)

Comments: Thanks, Chris! Believe me, I am not concerned about getting credit for 2.5 "new" moves of climbing. Flag is almost unique in the way in which obvious undone "up" lines (Cryptic Magician for example) have been assumed as done somewhere back in the day when it was clearly not the case. I am working on multiple double-digit independent lines up there that have not yet been done. Incredible but true.

Comments: I assume that if something that obvious had been climbed it would have been updated in any number of available forums online and in print. The "lowball sitstart" that I "groveled" through is actually good climbing on the best line and had no prior signs of human contact, odd for a fairly popular wall. Old school bouldering priorities aside, sitstarts to traverses were not exactly common anywhere in the '70s. So many people say, "Oh yeah Holloway (or Karn, or whoever) did it back in the day..." a... more >>

Comments: The holds at the start were completely untouched and required cleaning. I strongly doubt anyone else had done it.

Comments: Did this today. Seems too thin for V8, too short for V10. Definitely a great addition to the wall. Time to look at the arete right of Balance in Nature.

Comments: Antoine,
These Ophir routes sound cool but the Euro/YDS grade conversion is 8b/13d, 8b+/14a, 8c/14b, 8c+/14c, 9a/14d. Maybe edit the description?

Please post photos!

Comments: I was interested in a lower start on the arete and then moving into this but abandoned it as too silly :)

Comments: Thanks, Mark! I am going to go with Monsieur Pinklebear on this one. Hard for the grade but not 13b.

Comments: Permadraws on a closely bolted 35-foot cliff seems over the top. This is not the Motherlode or Wicked Cave here. The cliff is not even very steep. FWIW I never left draws overnight on any of the projects I did here. It takes a few minutes to put them in bolt-to-bolt and only a little longer to clean.

Comments: Joe, the snow is not a problem but the trail is kind of a pain owing to blown down trees. It's not a big deal. Area A is going to be too hot soon though.

Comments: For the flash, maybe three plan trainings is OK. Clippings, clippings, then problems, then is easy?

Comments: You can camp at Mount Evans, but RMNP is very tightly controlled for bivying and camping. The hike in, even to Upper, is not much more than an hour, so even if it was allowed, camping would be more trouble than it was worth.
