'Churchill Rejects' ascends a narrow, flat face repleat with a variety of features. It is fun and recreational at the grade.


This is found at the very foot of 'The Chamber' Wall, about 20 feet left of the 'Mine'.


4 bolts (later extended to '8 or 9' - see comment below) and anchors at top.

I'm not sure exactly how many bolts there are on Churchill Rejects these days, but I extended the route a couple of years ago or so and it now has about 8 or 9 bolts plus the anchors. Oct 27, 2006

Sam... do you know the distance to the ground from the new anchors? Thanks... Jan 3, 2007

This route is not too long. A 50m will get you up and to the ground no problem. Jan 10, 2007

Nice 5.9. Many bolts for the length of the climb. This is nice considering that the rock may not be 100% bomber in places. Fun route that I'm sure I'll climb many times in the future. Good warmup for the 5.10 and 5.11 climbs nearby. Apr 4, 2007

Be wary of rockfall from the gully above while belaying or walking by the base of this climb. A toaster-sized block fell and luckily broke up before it crushed my treking poles while climbing this one day. My poles and pack where on the farside of the trail from the climb. Aug 3, 2007

Bolts are about five feet apart. I would not want to fall because of all the ledges on this route. I was my first Poudre River sport lead though. Nov 1, 2007

This route is a good warmup. My favorite to take non climbing friends to toprope, because they can all seem to make it up. Aug 5, 2009

This was my first sport route in the area, and it is a fantastic warm-up or confidence booster on one of those rusty days. There were a few loose rocks that seemed ready to blow near the fourth bolt. Dec 15, 2010
