Colorado > Eagle/Vail/Mint… > Lime Park (a.k.… > Schoolyard


This is currently the second furthest right bolted line at the Schoolyard. Begin up a left facing dihedral for 3 bolts and then traverse right to an enjoyable steep, technical face.

Watch the pack rat poo near the third bolt. Moreover, a long draw or runner at the third bolt will reduce rope drag as you traverse right.


Draws. 7-8ish?

[Hide Comment] Some idiot chopped the 5th bolt - very difficult clip - in fact, the clip is now the crux - 30 foot fall potential for missing-stupid clip stance - no worries - I'm fixing it soon. Daniel Mannix Jun 20, 2018

[Hide Comment] Send me a picture of the chopped bolt, and I’ll replace it - don’t need you deciding where that bolt should be placed if it was even chopped - sounds like you couldn’t figure out the “stupid clip stance” ... this ain’t the gym, and the quality of rock to pull on is different than what passes muster for a bolt.

Sounds like you’ve been climbing for a while - didn’t anyone teach you not to retrobolt someone else’s route? I encourage you to give it one a “junk” status and never return, but please don’t be a dick and lower the challenge to what you deem as acceptable. BTW - YOU'RE WELCOME. Jun 21, 2018
[Hide Comment] It's a great route, but with the 5th bolt chopped - and it obviously is - a bad job of chopping I might add - it's not as the first ascent party left it - unless it was them who chopped. Whoever ruined the route is fair to call an idiot - they changed the climb, not me - I would just replace the bolt in its original position. Have you done the route? Dan Mannix 303-720-8957. P.S. The name is Dan to you--not "dick"--watch your tongue lad or I'll wash your mouth with soap.... Jun 21, 2018

[Hide Comment] Interesting stemming/crack climbing to the 3rd bolt. Clipped the long draw and traversed under the 4th. Unclipped the 3rd to lessen the drag. Balancy, techie climbing to the top. Fun route. Jul 9, 2018
[Hide Comment] Dan Mannix, it seems extremely likely that TKeagle IS the FA party...sounds like they have done the route. Aug 9, 2018

[Hide Comment] The bolts are fine, no need to retro anything. Didn't notice any chopped bolts or think the bolts should be anywhere other than where they currently are. Fun climb. Aug 19, 2018
