Comments: spooky. fun route, good intro to the needles.

Comments: I would say a main Turkey rack would be a set of stoppers, set of Aliens (or other micro), and a double set of Camalots from 0.5 to 3, and a #4.

Maybe a set of RPs or other micro wires if you are getting on something super thin, and maybe some bigger cams if you are getting on something wide. The bigger cams would be helpful if you aren't solid on wide stuff in general, as a lot of the routes have wide sections of varying length.

Hope that helps, have fun. Great place.

Comments: is haggis tower the 'rudder' of the 'happy submarine' that chris kalous mentions in his write-up for that formation? if so, i guess the question is whether folks want to move stuff into the 'happy submarine', or move everything into 'lavender butt'. thanks.

Comments: Man, I agree. I have done this one a few times and always really dislike that part. I usually bring a yellow or maybe red Alien. It's not hard there but kind of not super solid either.

Comments: A very nice route that packs really good climbing in a short distance. Excellent rock on this one.

Comments: The climbing on this is unreal. It is pretty rare in CO to have features like this that are really solid. Funky anchor set up, but, man, the climbing is cool.

Comments: Stout, from start to finish. If you are short, it might be tough to hang the draw at the 4th (I think) bolt. Pumpy climbing to a hurried rockover. Pretty cool.

Comments: Spent some time cleaning and this is a good route. Again, sorry for my original lame ass comment. Hopefully others will read these comments and learn from them. Thanks for putting these routes up - it would definitely be a LOT of work.

In '04, I worked up this area and spent some time hiking and looking at potential crags. I remember checking this area out and thinking it looked like some good steep climbing. It was definitely very nice and does indeed seem kind of weird with the new trail t... more >>

Comments: Best route at a very stacked crag. Brilliant climbing, perfect protection, and cool features.

Comments: Derek, sorry about the overly negative comment - I was more just really surprised by it being so dirty. I guess it is possible that all of the rain and the construction left it in rough shape. If I am there again, I will try to clean it up some. The climbing is very good and hard, it feels a lot longer than it is.

Comments: My initial impression of this route is pretty similar to Jack Sparrow's. The crux isn't very fun. Way scrunchy, way awkward, and fairly painful. The block under the anchor is pretty scary. It would probably kill you and your belayer if it came off. Climb to the left of it, and don't use it for your hands (which would be hard to do without pulling out on it). From below, you can't see the left line of holds very well, and it is tempting to get in the wrong position for the block. crux will be way... more >>

Comments: IIRC, the route to the left is 'Pulling Down In The Fields Of Cotton', easy 10 or so.

Comments: I was a bit perplexed by this route. A 'bit' dirty is a big understatement. This thing is absolutely filthy. I am really puzzled that someone would spend the time/effort/hardware/$$ to put up what could be a good little route and then not even remotely clean it. This would probably be a 2 star route, but in its current state, it is awful.

Comments: Funky start. I climbed it a few times, and it seemed like the best way was to climb the arete and reach right to clip. This route is pretty clean and solid.

Comments: This one looks like it is covered by steel rock fall netting, so it may not be climbable at this point (?)

Comments: I remember this one being awful. The only thing I really remember was grovelling up a kitty litter off fists crack for about 10 feet.

Comments: This is one of the few things I remember about this route. I think there was also a titanium pin on the route somewhere.
