Comments: Although it was quite sometime ago, I would like to address Dave Myers point of Access Fund dropping the ball.
He suggests that Sphinx Rock (et al.) is analogous to the LCC situation.
With most respect, they are not similar. Sphinx Rock access is on private land. Period. LCC is public. Therefore the Access Fund did not "drop the ball"; the land owner does not want climbers on hsr property. end of story.

A more analogous situation in Choas Canyon stashed pads and the RMNP service. A co... more >>

Comments: The upper pitches can be very loose.
I climbed DOWT back in 2005 and pulled a coffee table sized slab off the 9th pitch taking a thiry foot pendulum swing off the anchors. (It left a good sized non-core shot knick in the rope)

Comments: There are absolutely no negatives to the vision and initiative that Amy is showing.

Amy had the foresight to see that a problem we climbers created, leaving our stuff behind, was a potential threat to the access of a place that we love. She then took the next step to do something about it (the step that too many of us don't follow up with).

True, skiclimber, that if we cleaned up our mess on the frontside, none of this would be necessary. However, too many of us don't, so it is.

Good luck Amy... more >>
