Comments: Yeah, it does look good. What about the binding? Are we talking quality like Rossiter's BoCan Falcon Guide, or falls-apart-the-first-time Rolofson BoCan guide? Both of my Rolofson guides had pages fall out from crappy binding the first time I opened them up at the crags.

Who's the author of the new guide?

Comments: I did this route on 6/14/09 and found the bottom to be completely melted out. I climbed a snow ramp just to the right of the main gully. Where the ramp ended, the snow in the main gully began. I left the Bear Lake lot at 6am, but later wished I'd hit snooze a bit less that morning. When I reached the top of the gully, which also happens to be the steepest section, the snow was already very soft, almost too soft to ascend.

The overhang looks tough and is clearly not the 5.6 way to go (not to mention has loose blocks above the overhang). When you head left, go to a corner and head straight up. The blocks above look chossy from below, but ... more >>

Comments: Did this for the first time on Saturday. Beautiful line on great rock! The directions offered above were really helpful. Rossiter's description in the Flatirons guide isn't great for the first time back up in Skunk Canyon. So thanks to all for the trail/recon beta.

Comments: It'd be a bit ridiculous to give people that waited in line at Neptune's preferential treatment. The line at Neptune's was very expected and someone determined to get tickets would've realized their best chance was online when the sale opened.

Dealing with GA at Mackey is gonna be a shit show.

Comments: Warning: There is a very loose piece of rock at the crux roof. It is attached to the broken ledge system on the climber's right at the roof. It should be ticked with an X to let others know it is unstable.
