Comments: Amazing route! I felt the crux was pretty solid 11/11+, but I have fat fingers and was barely getting half my fingernail in. The traversing pitches are mega 5 stars! Also, the slab at the end is full value. Hard slab climbing (felt 10+/11 to me) on old, rusted, half driven 1/4" star drives. I tried for a while to free it and ultimately decided the potential for a serious fall wasn't worth it (no shame here). I pulled on the bolts and that was even terrifying. They need to be replaced. Seriously ... more >>

Comments: The crux knifeblade is no longer in place. As I led the route today, I gave the pin a quick test and it came half-way out. I deliberated for a while (read: cussed a bit), thought about bailing, but pushed it back in and finished the route feeling a bit uneasy about the whole process. On my way down, I gave it one mild tug and it came right out.
If I get a chance, I'll try to head back up and replace it soon. Be forewarned, the crux section is a bit runout now (still?).
I'll echo the lots of dr... more >>

Comments: 12a......Oi! You Ouray folk are strong! And just when I thought I was becoming a decent rock climber, you go and humble me up. Thanks I guess. It is truly a great route. Some of the most fun 30 feet of climbing I have ever done.

Comments: I guess I should clarify, I heard linking the 11+ flake into the large roof (second 11+ crux) was the way to go. Is that what you mean too? I didn't think you could lower to the ground from above the roof. Guess I'll just have to sack-up and go find out.

Comments: My partner and I backed off after he attempted the second pitch. We were both afraid he'd factor 2 onto the anchor if he blew it. So, in my research and plans to redeem myself, I've heard that it is safer to set the belay below the first crux and link both cruxes, OR the Josh Wharton superhero beta is do it all in one long rope stretcher (which he said might be the best 12a pitch in the canyon this way).
Any thoughts Rob or Alex as to this approach? I suppose carrying the double or triple set (... more >>

Comments: "I"! The Royal "we"! You know, the editorial........(The Dude)

When I first got on this problem 10 years ago, it was described/named as Standard Overhang to me. Obviously there are some different communities at play here. I personally will choose to respect the pioneers of the area, remember the history and will continue to know it as "Standard Overhang". But, since I donít boulder up there anymore and since the "royal we" of "the community that boulders in the park" needs to know this as the ... more >>

Comments: Quite the warm-up. Caught me a bit off guard for sure.
I did get a real good #3 BD (#4 might work well/better too) in the hueco on the left wall at the crux.

Comments: To quote Tcami....
"I've cited my reasons for naming the route the way it is"
"route information is posted by individuals I think they should do so as they see fit while taking into consideration the views of others."

T,
1. You didn?t name the route....you entered it into a database, and incorrectly too I might add.
2. Jason was not offering his "view" on the matter; he was correcting you and informing us.

I find it interesting that the route heading went from: The Kine, to The Kin... more >>

Comments: FYI regarding the above, Steve Su onsight lead the right side flake of West Owl Direct, Beth made the 3rd ascent of Anaconda, and I heard Tommy O-boxed Autumn Mist.
I absolutely love this crag and all of the routes so I always keep my ear to the ground on the climbing there.

Comments: This is an awesome route. IMO, it is one of the better single pitches in the Estes Park area. There is some lichen issues, and it needs some more traffic, but I've been on it 3 times in the past 2 months, and it has gotten exponentially cleaner.
The route takes great gear and has clean falls. The three cruxes are getting underneath the roof, turning the lip of the roof, then the upper dihedral.
A great way to do the route (and truly test you stamina) is to climb the slightly overhung finger cr... more >>
