Comments: I'm pretty sure I did the 2nd ascent of this amazing line today 4 years after the FA and can't believe more people are not climbing this after Sweet Inspirations both routes are really long, steep, gymnastic and incredible for the Front Range really and truly classics in my book! But Sweet Inclinations is definitely a good bit harder, more direct and honestly a way better line to link from Sonic over and up into Public Enemy hopefully more people will get up there and link this amazing line up i... more >>

Comments: I would agree and say it is solid 13d.1-2ish ;o)~ 13c is a total sandbagger move, and everybody knows it.

Comments: That is hilarious, D-Rock ;o)~ but it is certainly not 14a. Danny is a beast and a sandbagger. It is certainly upper end 5.14b even with the kneebars, and most people are sticking with the super low end easiest 5.14c.001 in Colorado. It is a long route, and it is possible to fall any where on the upper headwall, though the rests are good once you get through the grueling bottom boulder problems. This route is a mental and physical test of pure mind control and overall fitness/. You co... more >>

Comments: That depends on your definition of "a joke", Jason :o) Personally, I think it is a joke, but realistically and logically Public Inclinations is a great straight up direct variation to the already contrived Public Enemy ;o) This route is less contrived than half of the new 13c's at the Primo Wall or I'm Not A Philistine, Phil Of All Evil or Walka Flocka Flame in Rifle...less contrived than F-Dude at the VRG. I could go on and on, but I will spare you from anymore of the details. Some wa... more >>

Comments: Is that better, Jay? So you would like me to spend 70 hrs a week bolting, cleaning and brushing the routes, but you don't want to come down and trade belays or brush any holds or take any pictures, but you would like me to hire a photographer too so you can see pictures? I debated even adding these routes to the date base on Mountain Project at all to avoid any form of criticism. I spent over $1,000 on a drill, bolts, hangers, quicklinks, binners, webbing, brushes, etc. Then spent at le... more >>

Comments: Has anyone climbed straight up past the hanging belay atop pitch one? This would be instead of traversing left for the 10' to gain the fingers crack, the straight up variation looks really good and definitely harder!
