Blackleaf Canyon, MT... I don't expect there to be a crowd.


I climbed there a few years ago, it was pretty cool but we were surprised at how many people there were. Can't remember if it was a holiday or not. We got on some stuff, but there were things we couldn't do because there were people waiting...

The northeast is good at closing mountains...except Mt. Washington and Tuckerman's Ravine. They will let you do anything there although you get a 50$ fine for skiing naked...not that I would knwo firsthand.

I heard they are closing most of the cliffs at the NRG on Sunday and Monday to spray for the emerald ash boring beetle invasion. Sounds like you'll get cancer if you go due to the carcinogenic insecticide they are using. Do not go near the cliffs. Its very dangerous.

Bob- never speak of this again. There are 20 million people hovering 4 hours west of Vegas, including some climbers, most of whom seem content to go by calendar rather than forecast, and spend most all of their desert trips freezing. Some day this will end. And we'll look back on the present as a sort of golden age.

Stay away people. It's just too hot. It's late May, you know.

Will do, that wall will be crowded guaranteed. I'll be climbing sandstone splitters near there, but no crowds will be encountered.

Made a trip out there Wednesday. Relatively long hike to get to the rocks (2.5 miles or so). Main trail is pretty easy. Climbing trail short, and a little steeper. Was winded by the time I touched rock, but am 40 and asthmatic. Not a good place for beginners. You will not run into any top ropers, as there' s nothing for them to do but watch! I found 3-4 interesting bouldering areas. Have asked whether they allow bouldering outside the climbing area. Answer pending. Nice long traverse about halfway up the trail, and one big rock I'd like to call "Audrey II" as it looks straight out of Little Shop of Horrors. Other promising areas are at the base of Bombardier Dome.

Rock quality on main routes is pretty good--some pretty fresh, so watch out for crumbling holds for a few years. Routes are long and beautiful. Download the guide from Fixed Pin if you haven't. I would guess 2 pitch average. Great views of Pikes Peak, Devil's Head, and such from the whole area, not just the top! Enjoy the park. Once in a lifetime opportunity when a fresh area opens up, especially this close to home. Take care of it, and yourself. Climb safely!

There was barely any water left near the dome already. Just enough to get by for this weekend, luckily.


Lets see some more pics / trip reports...

Pretty cool this weekend, no?

Was the spring weeping or did you get water down lower and haul it in?

Looking to do some hiking in a week.
