Comments: Not bad, I agree the hardest part was at the first bolt. Some cool moves up higher.

Comments: Really liked this route, but didn't think it was that hard. Hopefully it just means I'm getting better.

Comments: Really surprised this is 10b.... I thought it was much easier, but maybe I'm just getting better. Still a very fun route.

Comments: I thought this was a really fun climb, lots of good crimpy holds mixed in with a few jugs.

Comments: As of 3/19 the loose block is gone - and the anchor has been updated to 2 bolts at the left side of the pillar.

Comments: Hey guys, my partner and I were climbing below you on LJW today (3-11-12) when you dropped the Alien cam. It didn't hit anyone, but some guys on the trail yelled up to my partner to let you know that it landed on a rock after that drop. You might not want to use it any more. I didn't see it laying at the base when I came back down, so I'm guessing you were able to retrieve it.

Happy climbing!

Comments: Didn't mess with the crappy P1 start... instead did Ignonimity to P1 of LJW and beyond. Linked the first 2 pitches together, and then linked the last 3 for a 2 pitch climb with a 60m rope. Just seems like a huge waste of time to do it in 5 pitches, as long as you use some shoulder-length slings, rope drag isn't too bad. Anyway, loved every minute of it, this is one of my favorite 5.8s in the canyon!

Comments: I did this one as a TR from the anchors for Duh Dihedral. The crux move seemed very hard for me, even harder than Pool of Blood to the left.

Comments: Very cool - I thought it was easier than the 9+ to the right of it. Loved the slight overhang at the top.

Comments: I followed this one today. Fun crux move, but my foot slipped and I fell from about 10 feet up. With rope stretch I hit the ground, although it was cushioned quite a bit. Fired right back up and enjoyed a great climb the rest of the way to the top. Moving out right around the corner near the top was really nice.

Comments: Fun, easy handcrack for the start, to more fun, thinner finger cracks later on.

Comments: Spicy moves at the beginning made this seem a little harder than 7 for me. Still liked it a lot, great route.

Comments: This was a fun route, but it felt harder than its 5.9 neighbor down the way, "Made in the Shade." Anyone else agree?

Comments: This was good, but this route and the two directly to the right of it can get a bit crowded around the first two bolts. The starts of all these routes just seem too close together.

Comments: This is a fun route, but the roof itself didn't feel like the crux for me. Anyone else think the face after the roof was a bit harder?

Comments: I had fun on this climb today, but I did it top-rope from the Gondolier Arete anchors, because I didn't see the point in bringing trad-gear to the Canal Zone. Definitely would be a good lead for someone working on leading 5.8-5.9.

Comments: As of 9-5-11, there wasn't poison ivy at the base of the route, so that was nice.

The "crux" seemed easy if you stem out right from the bolt and head up the nice easy holds over there.

Comments: I like this climb, but I swear the start is harder than the crux on its close neighbor, "Cracker Jack" (5.9?) Not too bad, but it's probably a good idea to protect the start with a nut in that crack that runs up the dihedral. After that, it's a walk to the top.

Comments: It does look a little right. I seem to remember doing an undercling to the left and following that bolt-line up. It's been a while though...

Comments: P1 was ok, but everything else just follows other lines up the tower. Not really anything new to people that have already climbed P2 of Calypso and beyond. Pretty much a "one-move-wonder." Fun on the dihedral, but after that you're done. Might as well just do Calypso. It's 5.6 and a little more fun in my opinion.

Comments: Did this route today and it was fun, but I think starting just to the right of the big boulder creates too much rope drag at the roof and above. If you were to start this out on "The Bomb", I think it would be a more enjoyable climb. It's not like the first part is any more difficult than The Bomb anyway.

Comments: Had a good time on this route. That roof is fun, but gotta get set up right the first time! I screwed up and ended up straddling the flake. Once I got my feet right, it wasn't too hard. The only pro I could find here was a nut placement to the right.

Comments: Peter: I think one of the big issues here (and the one I am most concerned with) is that RMNP is supposed to be a natural haven for people who want to get out and enjoy the mountains. Of course there are the roads into the park and the composting toilets in the backcountry, but do we really need fixed metal bolts on a rock just feet from the trail? I don't see any reason in adding to all the other unnatural features (i.e. toilets/roads/bridges) in the park. Even if only one or two people cli... more >>
