Comments: This route is wild! Couple it up with Golden Man and the Benchmark for a day of sandbagged scary Narrows routes.

Comments: If you were climbing at Checkerboard on Sunday, 3/13, and lost your Nikon camera, we have it! It was left at the boulder, so we grabbed it thinking we'd run into you later. It's a pretty nice one, too! Please get in touch and we'll find a way to get it to you. Damon, 970-371-7663.

Comments: This is a super cool route, in my opinion every bit as good as Redneck Hero. The crack climbing is not too difficult, then you get a sweet transition onto the bolted face and pumpy climbing above. Be warned that the bolts and hangers are in need of replacement - I did not feel too good about falling on them.

Comments: Super route! Four long slashes allow passage up a face that would otherwise be blank. Prospective suitors should note that it's a bit awkward getting up to the first bolt, and stick clipping from the ledge is not a bad idea.

Comments: This is the sickest route in the Front Range! Cannot believe how perfect this line is. I wonder if hold breakage has altered the grade at all? It's one hell of a hard 13b!

Comments: This is a great climb. Sustained, sequential, and with tricky footwork. Very solid at 12a! Needs to clean up a bit though, a helmet wouldn't be a bad idea for the belayer.

Comments: This route is awesome. Incredibly fingery start into a baffling crux up high. No matter how dialed I had the upper crux, it was at best 50/50, and when I sent I actually fell but caught myself on the underclings and sidewalk and was able to give it another go. Significantly harder than any other 12c I've tried at Shelf!

Comments: Great route! It's been a lot of years since I did Sucking My Will, but from what I remember, this is more enjoyable. Insanely beta intensive, like everything else around here.

Comments: This route is an absolute gem! I don't think there is a better line in the Poudre, except possibly Dream. This took a TON of work from me and maximum effort to send. For that reason, I think it's solidly 13a. It feels closer in difficulty to a route like Public Solitude than Dream of Poudre or even Landing Strip, but then again, it is a bit reachy and I am not tall. Get on this thing!!!

Comments: Delightful. Some of the most unique climbing on this wall. Good rock and highly technical movement

Comments: Since a lot of these grades probably been consolidated around here, I'll just say I thought this felt like solid 13a. Maybe it's just not my style though? Considerably harder than Ebola and many 12d's and 13a's around the front range.

Comments: Does anybody know which holds you can and can't use from the climb Monstrosity? Can you start on Monstrosity or use the crimps to the left? This is a good climb, but I hate feeling like I'm in a gym and worrying if certain holds are off!
