Comments: FFA: Bob Horan with Jim Ghiselli, spring 1999. I originally bolted this line in 1997 and left as a project, having done all but one move at the time. I called it Wake of the Flood. I returned several times and finally redpointed it in '99.

Comments: When I first discovered this crag in the '80s, I named it Huck's Fins. I then returned 20 + years later, in winter and added several routes, including a short but sweet spire, which I call Totem Pole, just below. After sending the routes, I realized the name Sun Dial, yes, this is the Sun Dial Crag, one of many unpublished crags I've established in beautiful Boulder Canyon. Love the place!

Comments: The bouldering in Eldorado Canyon can't be beat, get the guide, Best of Boulder Bouldering, or Bouldering Colorado, the originals. Here is author Bob Horan on his static version of Never Say Never, V11.

Comments: Folks have obviously not seen the detailed drawings of the East Draw, from the Colorado Front Range Bouldering, Volume 2: Boulder Area, published by Chockstone Press in 1995. In this volume, I name and detail the problems we established on the East Draw. A few of us have been bouldering there since the early 1980s. Great winter area! Awesome natural apparatus.

Comments: I remember belaying Skip on this first barefoot ascent of Wendego, while Glen shot the photos for his book, Vertigo Games. After that Skip lowered down, I pulled the rope and also sent it barefoot. We had been climbing strictly barefoot for over a year at that point. I remember a few days later we climb the first barefoot ascent of the Naked Edge and in record time. I believe it was 45 minutes, for what it's worth.

Comments: I named these the musical boulders way back in the '70s listening to a song by Peter Gabriel (Genesis) called the "Musical Box". I was on a bouldering roll, sent a load of problems, 5.13 style, and the song played in my head, before Walkman, before iPod, and so I named them the "Musical Boulders" way back when.

Comments: Saw this post recently and not sure what's being said here. It has been a while since I've climbed these routes. BD's book perhaps has the line drawn (#2) a little right, more like North Face Route, a 5.12 top-rope we did during that period of time. Easily deciphered though. I am hoping the bolts on Bobby's Wall have not been chopped. I'll go check it out at some point. Have had a lot of good feed back from people who have really enjoyed these routes over the years. Such a nice, isola... more >>

Comments: Glad to see somebody has also sent this, I also rapped it way back when late 1980s, very slopey, balancey top moves. I have over the past few years been returning to some old problems that I climbed back in the 1980s, mostly for GPS readings for OSMP. Several problems appearred grungy, a few had trees or bush over grown in front of them. I believe I initially rated this B2-3, then was told it had been given a V6 rating. It maybe harder, if not way harder, and somewhat hb.

Comments: @Chip, Steve's way was to run at the face and hop onto it by using the dynamic motion to latch and stabilize onto it. My way was to start at the base and statically mantle and pull myself onto the face, (the crux move without a doubt) much more difficult than the hop onto, which I was also able to do just after hearing of Steve's ascent. The static way was unrepeated for many years. How many people have actually repeated NSN, via my static move from the ground, or done the problem at all, jus... more >>
