Location: CO : Durango : Fume Wall
By: Steven Reneau When: Jul 14, 2016

Comments: Limestone crag with highway noise. CR 250 turnoff is 2 mi N of Honeyville (0.5 mi N of mile marker 35). From US 550, it is 0.2 mi to intersection, then 0.1 mi left on CR 250 North to where Forest Service access road 740 leaves pavement. From there, ~5 minute walk W on dirt road through underpass to Low Angle Wall, passing No Trespassing signs. Prominent sign by Low Angle Wall identifies it as private property (IanA states Fume Wall Right is in CO DOT right-of-way and therefore open to public@SEM... more >>

Comments: I was told the 3 sets of anchors right of Scorpio Rising, in the vicinity of It Takes Two, are all ~5.8 and were developed as mixed routes. I led the right one, with 3 bolts, and gear would have been useful between 2nd and 3rd bolts (runout, with decking potential). Left route has a longer non-bolted section.

Comments: More like 5.8 if you follow bolt line, easier to right at top. 2 bolt anchor, close to top of Good Times.

Comments: 8 bolts to chain anchor. 60 m rope barely works. 70 m is better.

Comments: I used 00 C3 to #2 Camalots and a #2 link cam, plus nuts. Nice bird nest at corner below roof, before traverse, unoccupied yesterday, but maybe to be avoided earlier in year.

Comments: The p3 crack was a definite rope eater for our 8.5 mm doubles. After rapping from p3 anchors and pulling the ropes, I had to reclimb the route to free one that was tightly wedged. Then despite giving the rope a sharp pull away from the crack the next time, the end still dropped back to the same place (but not so deep, and it came out with a good tug).


Location: NV : Red Rock : Oak Creek Canyon : Solar Slab - Upper Tier : Solar Slab (5.6)

Comments: On 5/7/15 after climbing Solar Slab to the top we hiked off via Painted Bowl, following cairns. We never found bolted anchors as described by Handren and others (which confused us, needing a single 60 m rope rap alternative), but the cairned route worked fine. Our route matches that described by d-know (1/26/06) and others as a walk off, though we did 2 raps. We found 3 rap stations en route. The 1st was at a small tree in d-know’s trough that turns into a flake chimney (we downclimbed this). T... more >>

Comments: Route closer to 50-60' long. Supplemental gear can be used between 2nd and 3rd bolts (nuts and/or small cams).

Comments: 2-bolt anchor shared with Fast Foods. I found a #4 and a #4.5 camalot useful.

Comments: With a 70 m rope, you can belay from the ground below the slabs.

Comments: Beta photo appears to show Right Side route up The Hour Glass as described in Sherman (2nd Ed.). We started up Sherman's Left Side route, which coincides with beginning of True Grip. Single bolt protects step across left side chimney where it narrows. After one 190' pitch we scrambled out right through slot under chockstone. Protected with nuts and cams to 2". Fun route.

Comments: Friends first climbed at Peanut Rock some years ago, and thought 1-5 were in the 5.7 to 5.10a range, stiffer than the 5.4-5.7 posted here. I’ve climbed them a couple times and think their calls are reasonable, and have added them. Nice rock and good friction practice, but not great beginner leads (except maybe Peanut 1).
