Comments: Awesome burly fingers to hand crack! The gear is a little weird, because most of it is a bit expando, but once you sort that out, it's well-protected and kinda classic! Woohoo!

Comments: I actually liked this a lot better than Max Factor, and the tech thin climbing at the top is awesome. I backed up the first pin with a yellow Alien and placed a red Alien below the second pin, which makes it pretty reasonable....the first pin is suspect.

Comments: What a wonderful mix of cerebral problem solving and brutal, pugilistic rock wrestling. Tripmaster is Much Harder and cooler than Squat. Makes you rethink what 12b means. Short, stout, and gnarly, kind of like the first ascentionist Bob Scarpelli! Bob was way ahead of his time pulling out crazy stunts like this in the eighties...what a bad ass! After I got a serious beat down day rained off day two...I was VERY stoked to barely send...felt like a right of I may finally b... more >>

Comments: Great new addition to Eldo! Really tricky and exciting sequences that have to be climbed to be believed. I did the whole 65m mega pitch which enters into the Doub Griffith right at the crux arete climbing... and then took the 12a direct finish. A heads up: the crux move is pulling up 60 meters of rope to clip the last bolt. It would have probably been more fun and "less of a drag" to belay off of two of the lead bolts on D.B. or something.

Comments: Quality route that gets lots of shade. A few tips: Bring a bit of gear to place at the ledge before you clip the bolt...the clipping hold is a bit suspect. I imagine that if you are under 5.7 or so, it may be impossible to clip the bolt without a mini-stick clip. I soloed up the 5.6 and then found a 0.75 and 1 Camalot amongst the shattered rock on the ledge, and I actually put two draws on the first bolt, because I watched a draw come unclipped in the gym recently, and if it came unclipped here... more >>

Comments: Well.... That was exciting. The Spice Tour is a great way to feel born again through rock climbing. Interceptor is on the soft side of R but really really good and perhaps the difficulty crux. Saturnalia will feel like piss by the time you get there. Really the crux of this worthy linkup comes down to the aptly named Inner Space pitch. I was definitely finding my inner happy place up there. I would call Inner Space R/X serious and a big step up from Jules Verne. If you came off at the end... more >>

Comments: This route actually 5.8 if you find the hidden jug at the top and have a good updraft. The moves are much easier if you have a large torso and a huge ass.... Classic. Good training for The Crack of Fear... which may be 5.8 too.

Comments: This is one of the best sport climbs in Boulder Canyon that I have done; super steep, sustained, and challenging, not to mention impressive looking. The start free of the "glue bridge" entails one of the shittiest finger locks you should ever hope to grab, the middle features a cryptic hand jam to sloper sequence, and the finish is climatic, with a wild reach to the lip of the roof like feature that the Lorax ascends. The 12a to the left makes a good warm up and is classic in its own... more >>

Comments: I'm pretty sure this is 11c, but we're going to have to down rate Spectreman to 5.10a if this is the standard.... Regardless...this is definitely a classic and exiting line with unprotected and gymnastic "5.11" bouldering for the first fifteen feet followed by overhanging, "5.11", tips lockoff moves and then some power laybacking that might actually be 5.11. One of the most rewarding pitches of 5.11c I have ever done, and certainly the hardest.... I was REAL psyched to lead this thing clean!

Comments: WOW! I had the pleasure of repeating this with Joe Mills this week. What an awesome line! Props to Chris and Bruce for ferreting out a modern day free climbing classic. This is the best out of the five routes I have done on the Diamond so far. My thoughts.... The 10b "rotten" pitch is actually pretty cool and fun as you stem and jam through a wild crystal matrix. The 11c face traverse is incredibly classic, airy, exposed and I thought just as hard as the crux 12b pitch. It also feels lik... more >>

Comments: Hey Brian...I just did this the Le Toit direct pitch today with Joe Mills as a finish to Scary Canary, and peeked on here to see if anyone had opinions about it. Let's say I was not bummed Joe lead this pitch! It's not bad getting to the first bolt, a bomber looking old ring bolt, but getting to the next bolt is a puckery twenty feet, and then you get there and it's a shitty quarter incher with a bail biner on it. I'd say there is a crux before and after this bolt, and if the bolt more >>
