Comments: Agreed. The sandbagging is becoming a bit much, Karthik.

Comments: Brad- I have footage of me doing this climb in my 'Rumney Blocs' video, so that may enable you to glean some insight into body position, foot holds, etc. I do think this climb is probably a little easier for taller folks, in terms of how big the move is and ease of keeping the feet on, while 'Caver's Direct' is probably easier for shorter folks because of the scrunchy start and dabbiness.

Comments: Awesome Brad, thanks for letting me know. I'll have to give it a shot at some point, though I'm back in Colorado now so it's going to have to wait for a while.

Comments: Is this the line up the center of the slab? Or is it on the right side? And if so, has the line up the center of the slab been done? I'm assuming 'Mist Of Paradise' climbs the left side of the slab, starting on the good low jug?

Comments: That was my chalk, Troy. So, you're welcome. :)

I cleaned the line a bit, removed some tree limbs and worked the moves. My older self doesn't enjoy long falls anymore so I like to be smart about how I work tall lines. I'm planning on climbing it sometime this week. At that point, I'll brush the ticks off.

How can you give this line only three stars?? I would give this line five stars if I could. Aesthetic, proud, tall with a flat landing, good movement on good rock and an engag... more >>

Comments: Intriguing climb, but very mossy up top at the moment. When is the Fateaux/Galloway cleaning crew going to go to work on this climb? The line looks really fun and I'd love to climb it... (hint hint)

Comments: I was climbing this on Thursday (9/28). After working out the moves on top rope, I decided to start giving it some redpoint burns. On my first redpoint burn, the first right hand crimp that you use exploded off the wall as I was cranking a move off of it. Initially, I was going to lower down, but I figured I would see if there was another way to do that move. While that hold was completely gone, there was another hold above it that I was able to make work (though it was probably a half grade to ... more >>

Comments: A keg is definitely a step too far. I hope someone said something to these people. If not, that's a shame.

Comments: Lee--

Do you have any videos/additional photos of you on the route? This route definitely has me intrigued and I'm considering trying it this Fall when I'm back in NH. I'm just curious to see more of what the climbing is like.

Thanks!

Just as a heads up, you put this video under the wrong climb.

Comments: Nick, what are you doing? That's why big/tall people shouldn't be allowed to climb. They're too heavy, especially for the chossier rock around here! All joking aside, the climb feels exactly the same to me. However, if V2 is at or near your limit, you may find it a bit more powerful now. There is a small crimp left of where the pocket formerly was that might be useful for those that need to match in this spot.

Comments: It's crazy to give this only three stars. I would vote that this is the best sport climb in Telluride on the best rock in Telluride. Looks like Patricio agrees!

Comments: This climb is mistakenly? called 'Sleeper' in the Caldiero guidebook and given v7.

Here's video of the FA to clarify that they are the same:

Comments: Ross-

I definitely didn't get the FA on this one. It was put up long before I even arrived. Jim Hurst might know who did it first, but it's always difficult to pin down with these older climbs as everyone remembers it differently. It's a good one, that's for sure. Calling it V3/4 in the new guide.

There's actually a V8, a V9 and a V7/8 to the left of this. There's also a really good dyno that hasn't been done yet. Start with your right hand on the left starting hold... more >>

Comments: This is not a first ascent. It is documented in both Utah bouldering guides and has been climbed for many years. It's unnamed and is given v3 in both books. The information should be changed to reflect this.

Also, it is definitely not a grade II route, so that should be removed from the description.

Comments: Really good line on really good rock. The first two moves are definitely the crux, but it stays reasonably sustained after those moves (I managed to fall 3 times post crux!). Not quite as good as its neighbor, in my opinion, but still really good!

Not sure what the story is with the completely manufactured line/holds on the left side of the boulder - three drilled handholds and one drilled foothold....

Comments: I thought this climb was absolutely amazing. Great movement and flow. Bullet rock. Powerful, yet intricate, with each move harder getting progressively harder. Hard for the grade. The V9, which is also solid at the grade, took me fewer tries.

Comments: I did indeed do it. I scoped and cleaned the slab a bit on a rope first, though. The hardest moves are probably getting established on the slab, but if you don't know where the holds are or what the sequence is, the slab will definitely feel like the crux. It could use a good cleaning, but it will be a lot of work.

Comments: There is also a sit start to this problem that goes around v5. You start matched on the obvious incut flake down at to the right. Move up to the crimps and then finish as for 'Center Direct'.
