Comments: Did this while waiting for the two nearby classics to lose the crowds. I'm still wondering why I got on a climb with the words 'hand wobbler' in the name. This thing flares the entire way, and I had a hell of a time with the crux roof.

Might not be so bad, but you're almost certain to hit the ramp if you blow the roof, which is rattly fists.

We topped out and walked off. It's probably 25 feet of 5.4-5.5 unprotected to top out.

This thing messed with my head, and I still think about i... more >>

Comments: Further west of Rose Hill, at Willow Canyon Crags South, on Alpine Pinnacle on the route "What If It", there's a hole with a massive amount of bees towards the top of the route, and you won't see them instead they start buzzing around as you get closer..the route directly to the right, "Weekend Warriors" also runs quite close to this hole..

Comments: Chris - The route marked in the picture is the Helicopter, not Pop goes the Weasel. Maybe that's the source of the confusion?

Pop is a variation on the start of Helicopter and is way harder - like two or three V grades or so......

The Black Hole has all sorts of contrived problems that are variations on the Helicopter - Pop Goes the Weasel, Miss Clairol, Revlon and Death by Drowning come to mind. The info on this web site is worthless to figure out which is which. Find someone who has been bou... more >>

Comments: If you have them, bring some sturdy-soled boots to scramble into this area, the amount of broken glass from the good ole boys hurling beer bottles down here is mind-boggling..goes for the whole East Windy Point area...I hiked in with trail running shoes and was OK but would have felt much safer with my boots with Vibram soles..

Also, an adjustable trekking pole is helpful for the loose scramble if you're carrying the gear, especially on the way back up..

Comments: Incredible route. But I'm also more than a little suspicous about the "best mono at Shelf". Funny that this and My Generation are both given 13a in the new guide, yet this is miles harder.

Comments: This route is really silly. The move at the bottom is ok, but this is one move, and it deposits you on a grassy ledge, which you then walk up a bit to some irrelevant upper moves. I really don't see why this was bolted.

Boulder the bottom move, it's not too high and the landing is fine.

Comments: If you are coming onto this route ("Small Brown Mouse") for the first time, it is at least a 5.9c. Luckily the bolts are placed well so that the spots where a climber is likely to have trouble will give you safe drops through the air. A fun, and exciting climb for intermeadiate leaders. Two Stars! I agree with Thorkel that this is the hardest route on this rock from an overall perspective. Tony Lusk's excellent "Firezone" has a more technical starting move, but dropping 4 feet off the mantle she... more >>

Comments: Lots of gear on 4th pitch! My partner and I got into a jam last night when we ran out of light and had foolishly left our headlamps at home. Because of this, our cleaning of the 4th pitch was hurried and whoever is the first to climb it today (Saturday, October 8th) will find some decent pieces. Of that person wishes to trade those piece for some tasty beer and good karma, please call Ryan @ 303.746.5643 and I will happily pick them up. Also, the days are getting shorter so don't forget your... more >>

Comments: Climbed it last night and added some webbing and a rap ring on what I assumed to be "the horn" just above the bomber bolt with two rap rings. A 70m rope got us back to the ramp with just a few feet to spare. Don't worry though, cause as stated above you could do 2 one rope raps using the anchors on the slab route next too it. Gear was solid the whole way. Climb felt kinda like an offwidth sloping the wrong way. I thought the crux was just above where the book says it is. Just my $0.02

Comments: by the way, our fearless leader, jay smith perpetrated the first ascent of this route in the finest of style, ground up. like many of the routes in mcc, the route was previewed on the rappel, and then the leader began climbing. many thanks to jay for teaching many of us who cut our teeth putting up routes for instilling this finest of ethics upon many of us who climbed here.

Comments: To the AC whose wife was offended:You seem to be speaking from a very uneducated perspective about bolt replacement that occurs in the Black Hills area. First off Ron Yahne is a pillar in our climbing community. He has fostered the climber/land manager relationship with great poise and dignity longer plus more effectivly than any other climber in this area. Many great great things have come from Ron's continual hard work. It is very unfair to condemn Ron or the others performing bolt replacement... more >>

Comments: I just did this a few days ago and wanted to comment on a few things. First, this is a fantastic route. About the pitches:

Pitch 1: The short corner near the top of this pitch takes a blue Metolius tri-cam well, right at the lip, which you'll appreciate when doing the mantle-esque finish. Awkward and fun. 100 ft

Pitch 2: I did the standard pitch up the wide left-facing corner to a belay notch. A few # 4 Camalots are nice. Be careful (or at least be careful for your belayer below) midw... more >>
