Comments: I did P3 on this summer of August, 2016. However, I climbed left after the roof---caution, rock quality is horrid despite easy 5.7-8. Then we lowered in, cleaned out the finger crack, and reclimbed the last part of the pitch. It was some extra work but worth it. Short 3rd pitch, but it made the rest of the climb well rounded. This route doesn't get done often for lots of reasons. Watch the people below, b/c they may/may not see you up there.

Comments: The listing on this route is a little confusing. It's definitely a value added plus finish for Xanadu. From the Xanadu anchors, look up and left. You will see a wafer intersecting the headwall. From the Xanadu anchors, you are looking at the ride side of the wafer. The left side of the wafer is what is shown in the photos. The Levin guide rates either side as 5.10, with the left side slighter harder. Having done both now, like many cracks it is size-dependent. Technically the left might be h... more >>

Comments: This is a fun route and a great warm-up for the routes at Dinosaur Rock. The current grade is very soft.

Comments: This was a fun pitch. The corridor went into full shade after 12. A nice contrast to the usual Lumpy slabby, flare crack. This is vertical to gently overhanging and a continuous crack.

Comments: This route is totally 5.6. To make it 5.7 is taking it out of context with the rest of Moore's Wall.

Comments: First trip to Eldo. First day, down climbed east slabs from Tower One after a different route. Not bad, but holy cow what a time sucker!

2nd route, Yellow Spur: These descent directions were perfect for a non-local. Details dead on. We were even blessed with another team at the first rap with a 70. Made it to the ground of the 1st rap and we joined ropes for a single rap to the ground.

Easily the fastest descent I have had, anywhere, from a 7pitch route. Thanks again for the great d... more >>
