Comments: Too bad this route gets bad reviews here. I think it has since cleaned up. The route has a great mixture of stemming and (bolt protected) finger crack climbing @ the crux.

Comments: Anyone have beta for the P2 crux? From the horizontal, I have to get my feet up high and do a dyno to the low point of the sloping shelf. Is this how others do it too?

Comments: We brought a lot of gear so I don't want to scare people off. But I would say 2 #4, 3 #5 and 1 #6. You can trim it down more if you are comfortable on stacks and bumping pieces. When it gets too wide for gear the end of that pitch there are bolts.

For the other pitches I'd recommend 3x TCus and 2x camalots #.5-#3.

Comments: We found a single grey Miura (size 41.5) on top of Bitty Buttress today. The shoe is in good shape, so I don't think it was intentionally left behind. Contact me at 303.909.4559 if it's yours. - Scotty Nelson

North west face corridor

7) Anaphalytic Shock 11-

West face directly next to the trail:
8) Mr Critical 11

Comments: Is this the route that goes up the arete? There seem to be 3 routes on this face. The left one looks like it goes through a nice brown patina patch. There is the middle one which looks tuff and then this one which seems to go up the arete. Can we clarify what these 3 routes are L --> R?

Comments: Contrary to the comments here, we found P4 / aka the pitch before the Peg traverse to be NTB / 5.10- as stated on the topo. P6 / after the Peg Traverse was burly, undoubtedly the crux for us. Make sure to take a C4 Camalot on this pitch. Also, if I do the route again, I would like to take a drill kit and replace the horrible rivet on P10. That move is kind of hard and unnecessarily dangerous. If there's a hole already there, there's no good reason not to put a proper bolt in it.

Comments: This would be a good beginner lead, if it weren't for the pointless runout at the top. Who bolted this thing?

Comments: Purple TCU protects the spooky 5.9 step off the ledge. The second crux section near the pin also protects well with a blue HB brassie.

Comments: I climbed this route a few weeks ago and cleaned a cam for a couple from Louisville. We were slow coming down and never caught up with you. If you want your cam back, PM me with the description. Thanks, Scotty

Comments: Can anyone offer any suggestions on where to camp, for a weekend climbing trip to IP? I'm worried with the proximity to Aspen there aren't many good options.
