Location: CO : Colorado Springs : Garden of the Gods : Twin Spires : Red Twin : Potholes (5.7)

Comments: There is no move on this climb any harder than 5.7 that I could find. The protection is more than ample and easy to clip from practically any stance. Yes, it is more vertical than some of the other climbs in The Garden, but this is not a slab climb such as those. It's just different.

This is a 5.7 climb. No need to inflate the ratings, and certainly found no reason for a PG-13 rating.

Comments: I think it was hard to rate this a .10b - the most difficult move I found on the route was at the very top and the rock starts to get past vertical for just a few moves. That might be why people keep rating this harder than it is, but this climb was fun either way. The third clip is a ways away from the 2nd and puts you in groundfall territory if you fail with rope pulled out. If you are breaking in to leading .10, this route is great! Just don't blow the third clip, and you'll be fine for the r... more >>

Comments: I found at least three of the pins needed an extended draw and probably would have used four if I had another. Great route! All the hard moves are well protected. The lower slab stuff is VERY delicate... down not out!

Comments: Please take heed to the warning on fall potential, you could very easily hit the buttress directly behind the climber on this route. The climbing is VERY fun, though!

Comments: Just climbed this weekend with a 60m rope. Had no trouble getting down at all, just take the last few steps easy. You can hold both ends of the rope and stand on the ground. A 70m rope would mean that you had 9.5m of rope on the ground doing nothing. This is a FUN line. Anchor placement is totally fine.

Comments: As of March 27th, 2011, the second to last cold shut nut was very loose, not sure if it just needed to be tighetned up. Was too short on time to check it out.

Comments: Second pitch belay anchors, the top bolt of the three was VERY loose. Didn't have anything to tighten it with, so I finger tightened it.

Comments: There are 3 major flakes/chucks on this route that should NOT be pulled on. The bottom 2 are just above the first bolt, in the middle of the crack, and the top one is near the last bolt. Don't pull or your belay will need to run!

Comments: Did this route last night - it was very fun. Had to try it twice! Very balancy, very delicate climbing, had to trust my hands a lot more than I'm used to lately.... Will do again! Top right anchor could use some tightening, otherwise it's all good.
