Comments: I came extremely close to getting bitten by a rattler last night. It was right off the main canyon trail near the cutoff to Wendell. This guy was big, and he even snapped at me! Be Careful!!!!

Comments: Are these routes and the routes on Vanishing Point in the shade during the summer, and if so, what times? Morning? Afternoon?
Thanks!

Comments: I thought I would add a few ideas I applied in climbing this thing fast:

We do the North Chimney. Stay on the slabs to the left of the chimney at the start, not in the chimney proper. I do a running belay all the way to Broadway, and it didn't take us too long.
A few tips on linking pitches, as I found this to be priceless.
1- North Chimney, all the way to Broadway...solo or simul-climb.
2- 1 Long pitch up the pillar to the base of the first 5.9 crack. Haul pig or second carries.
3- Link 5.9 ... more >>

Comments: Great route! The rest before the crux definitely makes the redpoint easier, but this is still a tough route. I move right under the roof and go to the slopey pocket to pull over the roof. Fun stuff!

Comments: This area is destined to become classic. [Definitely] the best multi-pitch sport climbing I have done in Colorado. The rock is very clean, and the climbing itself is HARD! It must be due to the alpine nature of the wall. We did this and Higher Calling in the same day, and thought they were both super sustained climbs. For WOW: P1 is an ok warmup with the hard moves off the deck. P2 is very sequential and hard. P3 is epic, and if it was on a Clear Creek or Boulder Canyon crag it would be the mos... more >>

Comments: Whatever, dude. Castlewood ROCKS! Yes, climbing in the winter is great. C-section, Wendell Spire, Falls Wall all receive sun from late morning till evening. Go there!

Comments: There has been a lot of new routes developed on the right side of this crag, but the pictures do not detail route locations. Can anyone provide any info on where each route is? Maybe a left to right description of the newer routes starting to the right of Adventure Kayak trundle? Slacker looks to be awesome!

Comments: LAKE CITY: I am hoping to ask about any new routes in the area of Lake City. I used to live in the area for years, and know how to get to Gods Crag from directions on stoneseeker.com. I am taking a trip to Lake city this weekend, and I'm bringing some new climbers.

Are there any new areas you could advise me on that would have softer climbs? Are there any new 5.8-5.11 climbs near Gods Crag?

Any information much appreciated!

Comments: I always combine the 1st two pitches. I either do the direct start, or do the variation slightly left of the 5.9 start (mentioned above.) This allows you to climb the 3rd pitch and walk along the ledge and setup a better belay for the 4th pitch.

Comments: We accessed this route by climbing the Berlin Wall (Fall of the Wall), and then downclimbing the gully to the start. There is a two bolt anchor setup above 'fall of the wall' for rappells back down (need slings replaced.) Great route, although a little crumbly. Have your belayer wear sunglasses.

Comments: There is a fixed rope to aid in getting up the gully if coming from Boulder Falls, it looked solid, so we used it to rappel back down the gully. Great route! Sustained.

Comments: Can anyone provide me with the current conditions on the lower east face of Longs? (Kor route/ Stettners) I'm hoping to get up there soon, and wondering what mills glacier and upper kieners are like these days, and if the lower east face is still seeing much runoff.Thanks in advance!

Comments: Hey Mike B.! Why don't you keep the comments about sport climbers to yourself. Do you really want to start a rant about aid climbers vs. sport climbers? I am pretty sure that if I can climb a 5.13, then I can probably follow you up any wall of your choice. I may need to learn some aid techniques, but, in general, I don't think I would have a problem stepping in slings, and pulling off of gear. I don't need to be an aid climber to get on big walls (ie. diamond.) Pretty bold statement you make the... more >>
