Comments: I heard it was the same guy that was stuffin M-80s up all the baby falcons' butts out on the Sunshine Wall; either that or I was hittin the heat again and Kirks saw another ascent.

(I actually like this picture -- it's been a while since this area been that green.)

Comments: no spotter??
That's just sick!

(as any boulderer will tell you, you're off route, your left hand is supposed to be 3" more to the right. And, that's not the correct route name. And, you can't climb it anyway, it's only for real boulderer-er-ses. And, you're ruining my wilderness experience, etc etc etc)

3 Sisters can be a blast -- I don't think I've ever had a bad day there.

Comments: Allen, it looks like this print is about as good as I can get it. I'll put another vantage up also under Fair Use to show how almost timeless this area is.

Comments: From: The Shattucks of South Elk Creek, David P Nelson, 2008. Winner Adult Long Essay, Historically Jeffco Magazine.

"...History along South Elk Creek is rooted in the emergence of Pine where the North Fork of the South Platte collects its waters. The laying of track for Denver, South Park & Pacific Railroad brought about great changes, spurring activity in logging, ranching, and mining. The first ventures into South Elk Creek occurred from the bottom up, not down from Shaffers Crossing. From ... more >>

Comments: Mainly because Western Diamondbacks aren't indigenous to this area and the picture has the markings indicative of a Prairie which are common in our area; also gets called Western or Prairie Western (Crotalus viridis).

The Western Diamondback (Crotalus atrox), you won't see those in CCC unless someone brings it there; and it probably won't make it for very long. The diamond markings are more defined, and, though Diamondbacks have a patternless species, you don't get those brilliant contrasting ... more >>

Comments: I believe Hanson & partner to remain unnamed had the distinct pleasure of having the ledge fall away during a stint back in the '60s. You might be able to see the piton scar from the attempted heli rescue in which his partner's harness exploded during a tyrol to the opposed canyon wall. I believe they survived but a teddy bear did take flight; inspiring the opening sequence for the historically accurate movie about mtn rescue, climbers, base jumping, drugs, money, feds, and the women who love th... more >>

Comments: Looks? Looks easy?!?!?

What if I should spill my PBR on my next attempt? Don't you realize the technical fortitude & danger of this entire route?? Surely, you must appreciate the level of commitment it takes to send this elite grade.

looks easy...

Comments: Tempermental mountain that requires permission from the highest authority; one of those where you sneak up, play position, and quickly & quietly leave. Great route for snow & ice climbing but not worth your life.

Comments: Nope, it's public Dvr Mtn Parks, but it's prohibited to rock climb due to our visible, noisy, unsanitary, filthy, scumbag nature.

Now the gumby hiker throwin' trash all over the ground, or the meth addict lookin' to get some tweak; come on in, the water's fine!!

Comments: Addendum: Note that this area is located in a wilderness area, so no bolts or fixed anchors are allowed.

The wilderness designation doesn't dictate this, only that motorized activity be prohibited.

Comments: You can mix it at the start and take a pillar from WI4- to M6/7 WI6 depending on conditions; with the harder starts, most just belay from screws or a set of bolts on the left and make it a 2 pitch climb continuing up on the right of the main headwall as well instead of traversing out.
