Comments: I saw a guy on this today and he had to downclimb the last pitch because the anchors are gone. There are a lot of rockfall scars on the face below the climb.

Comments: Does anyone know if/what broke on this climb. I've done enough 13s to know that this is either the biggest sandbag I've been on or the the more likely option that something serious broke.

Comments: About as hard as "Green Spur" 5.9 in Eldo, easier than "Valdez Overhang" 5.9 across the road and the same as "Lead Fillings" 5.9 just around the corner. Neat moves but real short.

Comments: Very cool moves and sustained climbing. This sandbag at 5.11- may go at 5.11c or hard 5.11b. However, you won't get hurt trying regardless of the grade. It's super well bolted in the crux roof. Also, there are two a more new routes around to the right that look like they were put in by the same group. What's up with these??

Comments: It may be short, but it is one of the scariest climbs I have ever been on. There is pro, but I don't think any of it would hold a leader fall and contrary to the guide, there definitely are no anchors at the top. The only good way to belay from above is on the opposite summit side of the tower with some creative placements and your own body weight. Make sure your partner knows not to fall getting over there since the pendulum could easily rip both of you off the top. Not recommended.

Comments: This climb was fun. Good holds, good feet, and plenty of rests to place gear. I was climing it last Saturday (11/13/05) and took a 25' wipper towards the top and I broke my ankel. It was in the crack and twisted as I fell. I had to bail quick so if anyone gets on this amazing climb soon, you'll find a BD #3, #2 and a blue alien I had to leave behind. I hate leaving gear, expecially when it's my friends. So if your feeling kind, write a comment here to let me know if you would b... more >>

Comments: Some of the ratings in here are getting a little sandbagged as the holds get polished, the opening moves on the usual 5.8+ warm-up (valentine's something) are starting to feel more like solid 10a..watch out for loose rock even on some of the established routes..

Comments: 12cs at Rifle take me 5 or less tries. This one took me about 10. It is very [temperature-dependent], but I would say the crux move is as hard as any move on Vaso. It's much harder, for instance, than "Bovine Impact" at Rifle, another Fred Knapp route...It's a super good route, though, regardless of the grade. I also moved straight to the left-hand gaston from the right hand undercling, and then slapped the sloper.

Comments: ac, All of your comments above are accurate, the traverse in from the side was (more info on the past tense in a second) the original Helicopter and Flaming Arrow was what the sit start was called, grades about right as well. However, in the past 10ish years the names of these problems have been run together and confused. The problem is further complicated by the fact that about two years ago the starting hold broke off the original line. You will notice it is missing by looking at the pictur... more >>

Comments: Climbed this yesterday for the first time and it was amazing. While sitting on the belay watching my partner make his way up the second dihedral I noticed a line to the left on the overhanging arete. I was wondering what the rating and name is of this pitch is, if different than Vertigo?

Comments: Good challenging climb for intermediate climbers. Tests variety of skills. I have climbed for about a year and I did this climb after I was fairly tired and it gave me a good challenge. I'm sure experienced climbers will have no problem with it but still have fun..

Comments: The route is pretty loose in the middle, I parked right under the route so I could clip the first bolt, bad idea. When I was bringing up my 2nd I could hear rocks hitting my hood.

Comments: please be careful attempting to rap to the L of Bishop's Jaggers with a single 60m rope. someone installed the first rap (didn't get the chance to check lower stations) for 70's. don't rap off the end of your line!

Comments: Did Bishop's Jaggers last week. Nice shiny new bolts, the work is appreciated. There appeared to be a new rappel route bolted to the left so we attempted to rap after four pitches. The first rap (ends above the big roof to the L of the 3rd belay) came up no less than 5 feet short with a single 60m rope! I say come on now, are we installing 70m rap stations at a long-established crag? This is dangerous, someone's going to rap off the end of their lines. Be careful!

Comments: new bolt(3/8" SS triplex)added to existing single bolt anchor, and fixed nuts removed.

Fun route. Stiff start, but good hands higher, and bomber finger locks on the steep part. The right crack helps with the feet (ie. stemming).

Comments: I agree this was not needed at all. But I will say I am not looking for any bolt wars on a beautiful crag. There is no reason to ruin any climbs because the bolts are already there and they are placed well. If you don't like them or don't agree, build the anchor and don't use them.

Comments: This crack is on Ass Hole Rock. Not Da Butts. It's really fun and guaranteed to make you sweat. Bring 2 # 4 cams to be really safe at the top or just slide one up. No bolt at top.

Comments: There are at least 8 new bomber belay stations and the old runout routes have new bolts to protect. There are also 2 new one pitch sport routes with solid anchors. This is a truly modern and safe area with great easy to moderate climbs. The approach is really easy and only takes 20 min max.
