Comments: I tried this route again about a year ago. I noticed that the three bolts are suffering corrosion. Probably a mixed metal thing. In 2008 or whenever I bolted this, I had never even heard of galvanic corrosion. Normally in CO it still wouldn't matter after such a short time, but this thing is a waterfall infrequently.

The studs are Powers 3/8" SS. It needs new hangers though. I won't be around maybe ever to fix it, and I do feel bad about that.

Also, if you want to bolt the start and turn it in... more >>

Comments: I've seen this falsehood before. It pisses me off, not because I care about the route anymore but because what you're spreading is untrue. I give you benefit of doubt that you don't remember correctly but I bet you're just lying.

Before I start, Mark, you have my permission to add any bolt you want to this route, or chop them, or my personal favorite, dynamite the entire cliff band.

So a younger, stronger, more purist me found this line. In fairness, Kirk was there that same day. He was estab... more >>

Comments: This is an excellent route and it's all good, not just the OW pitch. It would be just as classic without that pitch, so get after it.

There seems to be a lot of internet hardman posturing about this route. I'll try to clarify it a bit.

If you want a route to compare the crux of this to, it's bg crack at Vedauwoo. The crux, above the second roof is nearly identical climbing, just a shade longer. Also rated ... more >>

Comments: Dan, the take away point is that the route is fantastic.

Comments: We inadvertently did most of the route today. We had a slower party above us, and we jumped on something they weren't on.

Anyway, it was fantastic the pitches we climbed (did not do p1 or p4). Coming home and reading this topo though, I might be inclined to call shenanigans on some of the ratings. Each pitch we did felt harder than ratings here. Of course I haven't been at altitude for over a year, and I haven't climbed much this summer. Still, I've been around awhile.

I'll make it a point to ... more >>

Comments: Crumbly rock, dirty, and rather uninteresting climbing.

Move along, it's not worth the trouble.

Comments: Pretty much what Topher said except I can't claim to have onsighted it.

It's really good and fun climbing. What makes it great is the sustained nature, there is a lot of really good 5.11 on this route plus a really cool crux.

If I had a complaint, it's that the bolts were not placed with a shorty in mind. I am not short, so it was fine. My ropegun however is sub 5', and it's not entirely climbable if she needs to hang the draws.

As far as pro, I don't really see anything worth a damn above ab... more >>

Comments: Above this pitch is potential for a second pitch. It is a thin, right-angling dike/seam.

There are anchors on the ledge immediately above the seam.

I put the anchors in a few years ago intending to work the moves and eventually free this line. Since the day the bolts went in in 2008, I have gotten on the route two times. I really don't have the time or inclination to do it. I am declaring this an open project to anyone who thinks it's worth their time and hardware (hell, I'll supply the hardw... more >>

Comments: Just a few points to clarify, because I like accuracy:

Pitch 1, as described but more like 150'. It's easy-ish and fun.

Pitch 2, I guess it's possible to do as a huge 70m pitch, but it would flat out suck (and suck and suck). Here is your better option. Climb the finger to hand crack until it ends. Make a fairly comfortable belay here. Then lead across the "grassy ledges" to the offwidth and up. The best place to stop would be about 30 feet above where the topo suggests to belay at a stance.
