Comments: Does anyone know about the new climbs above the Bowling Alley? Is there a new guidebook which covers these climbs? Any info much appreciated!

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: Hey...I agree. And, Nate, I hope I was not rude to you specifically. If so, apologies. I agree wholeheartedly with what Matt is saying, but I felt the need to reply to comments I (whether directly or not) received. I was simply asking about some beta, and got bashed(stereotyped) in doing so. I climb at places like the industrial wall/secret crags, and shelf road (older climbs), where overbolting etc. are not issues. I do not support areas like the sport park, but areas like shelf where there ... more >>

Comments: Wow...you guys sure are witty. I love to get dogged by people I don't even know!!Thanks Nate! Thanks Rich! True, it is at the sport park, but if you guys are too blind to see a beautiful line (whether it be 'overbolted/overrated' or not) then I'll have to see what lines you guys are doing. I know the sport park gets a lot of bad press, but I for one think that rock is rock. Period. It's not my favorite place to climb (maybe climbed there 3 times), but the sport park does hold some awesome lines... more >>

Comments: RED WALL! CHASM VIEW WALL! Talking to a ranger, a team reports that an 80ft flake on this climb (unsure which pitch) shifted when weighted. The team reportedly downclimbed, then rappelled off. Sorry for the limited info, but thought this post would at least cause anyone thinking of this route to contact RMNP backcountry office for more updates.

Comments: DESCENT: Here it is.. Must have double ropes (60M) R1- Start with standard rappell off the summitt, 150+ ft rappell to two new bolts almost directly in line (little to the left) of the rappell.
