Comments: A fun route but hysterically over bolted.

Comments: the 10a/b next to it sharing the same anchors has a smashed second bolt from recnt rockfall. hoffa finger has serious dirt all over the start from the rockfall also.

Comments: Could have been a good route, if it weren't so grossly over-bolted. Good job on ruining another nice piece of stone.

Comments: I was wondering how hard the .11a pitch is and how runout the R pitches are. Is the crux pitch similiar in difficulty to ancient art? That seemed like a pretty soft 11, but the bolts were right there so my wussy-ass felt better. How about the R pitches?

Comments: Really fun route. Ridiculously over bolted. You never climb more than 1 foot above a bolt on this route, and can clip over your head with a bolt at your waist. And that's *Boulder Canyon* 11b. As in 5.10 in Eldo. The moves really are fun though.

Comments: To me, it seems unlikely that a line like this has not been climbed.

However, if someone were [competent] enough to get down without anchors (downclimb the route or needles rappel), I'd assume such a person would know the difference between stout 5.7 and 10d.

I'd like to hear from others who have climbed this route, their rating opinion and how they got down.

Comments: i've heard not just a few people refer to this as the "4am crack" - its similar but slightly bigger than 3am, right facing corner, etc. - mayber better than yet another nameless crack at the creek -

Comments: I climbed this route last weekend. I had the pleasure of leading every pitch, including linking the last two. Before the final chimney, I decided to take a breather before jamming my body into the crack. As I was standing there, I peered into the back of the crack and saw a rather odd sight. Way in the back was a skull. It was pretty big, like a large mammal. I'm thinking it was a deer or something. Anyway, it scared the bejesus out of me. I kept climbing and finished the route. I guess... more >>

Comments: The Last rap is not off the P1 anchors but an independent set to the east. A 60 meter will not reach P1 anchors from P2!!!

Comments: As reference, ac's bouldering scale is off by about a number grade (V8=13a), but you will find many more climbers capable of climbing a V8 boulder problem than a 13a. I believe George's 12b grade may be a little stiff (that is most likley the result of being a solid 13 climber).

Comments: The left facing corner that angles to the right above Snuggles is more like a 5.9+%$@!!# which denotes the expletives you'll be using on this TERRIBLE rock (even by Garden standards). There is a person sized chunk of rock with in the middle of the route ringed by a significant crack that poses a significant risk to your belayer. Not recommended...

Comments: What is the next route left of Self Mutilation like (same start, than left traverse)? Compared to Self Mutilation it felt a little bit harder. Does anybody know the name?

Comments: An absolutely fantastic route. The anchor should certainly not be lowered, as the climbing on soft rock is easy and protectable, and actually quite fun. I placed a green alien in the horizontal. This piece is suspect in the soft rock, but even if it pulls your next cam is not far below and there is nothing to hit if you fall. I lowered off on a 70 meter rope.

Comments: One of the very best. Pumpy and sustained, with hardly a shake between the 2nd and 6th bolts. I personally think that In Your Face is a harder 12d to redpoint, though. If you're comparing the grade to other areas, however, this would go as 13b in a certain local climbing area with cream puff ratings that I will not name.

Comments: It seems as if Boulder climbers are insecure with grades. Porch Monkey would hold the 12b/c grade in Rifle (which is a warm-up there if you were not aware), so if climbing at this grade is a big deal to you then live it up, and yes you will be able to climb practically every 12b in Rifle if you can climb Porch Monkey (have fun waiting in line with all the other dolts!).

Comments: Dear Friends:

I came upon this website by accident, but it brought back memories. I was a high school wrestler from Homewood-Flossmoor H. S. in Illinois and visited Devils Lake with a teacher and group. I climbed Darcy in 1969. I remember the thinness of the holds. I had a new (now very old) pair of Royal Robbins climbing boots and was going up from a top anchor point (of course).

I still think of the climb and would like to visit again someday. A lot of year have passed. I live in Houston... more >>

Comments: There is a trick to clipping the bolt that makes it pretty easy. Just climb a little way up the 2nd pitch of Chockstone and from a good jug reach around the corner to the bolt. Great way to add a little extra climbing to Chockstone even if it is a bit contrived.
