Comments: Voluntary seasonal falcon closure notice for Windy Point from February 15 - July 31. Please no caching of gear on Forest Service land. The forest service has been very cooperative in establishing this plan; please be responsible.

Comments: Split Lizard, 10d. It does require some gear and long draws.

Comments: Someone took the chains off the anchors of this climb in the last year. Seriously, what kind of douche nozzle steals anchors? Been happening to a number of routes up here.

Comments: As requested by the clipping masses, I added a bolt to get rid of the runout. Sigh...I feel dirty.

Comments: It really is a shame to see bolts next to that crack; it would eat up gear, but bolts are convenient. I'd wanted to go up that feature for a while but never found the time. The holds pulling through the roof may be suspect; be careful, that diving board feature seems cemented in well for now, but it feels really spooky trusting it. Sorry about the pup; my dogs have loved main elk too.

Comments: Most of the bones are from a cow elk that went down there from sickness about 6-7 years ago. I watched the poor thing for two weeks or so when I was stopping by after work. Contacted the BLM about euthanizing her. She went down on her own. Stayed away for about a year because of the smell. Called them the dead elk instead of East Elk Boulders after that.

Comments: This is another one of my routes. Sorry about the choss at the top out. When cleaning this route initially, I dislodged a rather large block at the top out exposing soil at the edge. Spent a day up there with a mc loud raking but have left the rest to time. Fist of Elder is mine as well; I named it after a fist-sized clump of box elder bugs I found on it while cleaning.

Comments: Voluntary seasonal falcon closure notice for the Fortress of Solitude from February 15- July 31. The closures as of now are route specific. The central super routes (Daily Planet to Flex Luthor) are open. Once nesting has been determined routes may open. No new routing (noisy power drills) can happen during this time period even in the open areas of the main cave. Any routes east of the main cave remain open. Please no caching of gear on Forest Service land. The forest service has been ve... more >>

Comments: Jim, glad to see a helpful member of the community post relevant info on this site. Sorry that my dialogue here led to discreet access of the routes as described on splitterchoss.com (great site for info unless your a "real local" and already know it all). I'm sure it would have been much better to have all access denied as other obvious invaders to your ancestral Ute homeland would have stumbled up to unknown real locals-only climbs described in two guidebooks. Oh and thanks for the polite ... more >>

Comments: BJ, sorry to offend you by reporting conditions. I'm not trying to hold out my own candy and deny it to others; I'm trying to share current access information rather than ignore the situation. The Drool (one drainage north of the False Drool) is on private property, however the owner (who rents out the house next to it) is not adverse to climbers discreetly approaching it from the road. The False Drool (described as the Drool in two guide books) is also on private property where the... more >>


Location: CO : CO Ice & Mixed : Redstone : Narrows, Redstone, McClure ... : Avocado Gully (WI3-4 M2)
By: Bryan Gall When: Jan 31, 2005

Comments: Ran up Avocado on Saturday; it was in decent shape with all the warm weather. The warm probably helps the gully receive moisture. Other things in Redstone are hit and miss. Redstone Pillar: looks fat. Drool: in. False Drool: no way. Hays Creek: not happening. Crystal River Slabs: wet rock. Didn't go to Marble falls but the sun hits the window on top, so educated guess says no.... Coal Creek: crazy things are happening in Coal Creek, with a little more cold and time it could be a ... more >>


Location: CO : Glenwood Springs : Glenwood Canyon : No Name Canyon

Comments: Generally yes. All the established routes can be done with a single rope. The option exists on the West Side to go "exploring" above the cragging routes. Most of this is low angle with a few worthwhile cracks. You may want a second rope for rappelling off trees and other various anchors. If you really want quality multi pitch routes that require two rope descents in the Glenwood area, head across the Colorado River between the Hanging Lake and Shoshone exits.

Comments: Climbed Firehouse Left (right, center, & left) on Saturday 2/28/4. Suprisingly the whole area was still in pretty sweet shape. Left of left pillar was a hook fest; I didn't have to swing once. Got stuck in West Vail on my way home to New Castle because of a pile up on I-70; stopped in at "Bullcrabs" right at the exit; happy hour boasts $2 dollar pints, 50cent oysters on the half shell, & buckets of steamed shrimp and crawdads. An unusual after ice feast that I ... more >>

Comments: Spooty's comments, while in poor grammar and often denigrating into random insults, do provide a much needed bitch out to any rank bastard who would pick up a chisel. I'm generally amused by his comments and enjoy reading them. The [Poux], though a roadside distraction, [suffers] from chiseling like other sport areas. Please don't bring down a route, sport or bouldering, to your level by chiseling. There's plenty of other rock to be had everywhere even for "pizzle diks". Even a fat ass week... more >>

Comments: Great season around Redstone; Avocado is doable, the pillar is good, Coal Creek excellent, the Crystal River Slabs are formed up, Marble Falls is doable, Hays Creek fat. Now to the point, The Drool as described in both Cam Burns' book and Jack Roberts' guide is not the Drool and is on private property. The False Drool or Dribble or Crystal River Pillar or whatever you call the two pitch falls directly behind the turn off for Crystal River Park (behind the log home next to green house... more >>

Comments: As far as I have heard, the only development across the river in horseshoe bend has been purely exploratory. I know a few individuals who have rapped in from above to toprope a few lines. I haven't seen or heard of any bolts being installed. Access to the horseshoe bend has been from above off of the Scout trail and the Forest Hollow trail. These can be reached from the east end of eighth street in g-wood. I would love to hear if anything was being developed...

Comments: Technically the railroad is private property; you can be charged with tresspassing if caught on the tracks. Realistically no one will bother you if you keep a low profile. I know of only one climber who was ticketed a few years ago, but I think he was very confrontational with the railroad workers. If you stay away from the tracks and are on the rock you'll be fine. Although I approach the climbs along the tracks, I generally duck out of sight if a train is coming. I tried opening... more >>


Location: UT : Moab Area : Indian Creek : Broken Tooth : The Incisor (5.11a)
By: Bryan Gall When: Dec 2, 2003

Comments: This climb is a blast!! Initially very easy it goes through a very strenuous offwidth bulge in a wide #4 Camalot size. The last bit is best protected by two #4.5 Camalots (or walking just one #4.5 for a while). I would lean towards the 5.11- rating for this one. By consensus with friends, the hardest moves at the bulge are definitely in the 5.11 range.
