Comments: WARNING: DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU DON'T WANT ANY BETA. This is an attempt to add some meaningful commentary to this climb other than the Sven Slander. I fired this route today after a ton of work, and have to say that it is just stupendous climbing. First you've got to deal with a ceiling. WOW! I actually thought this was the hard part. Here's why. Right off of the ground you get two easy moves to clip the first two bolts and then it's all business to the first rest. A powerful undercling lead... more >>

Comments: This route is great with two dynamic moves in a row. Careful when you throw the dyno, it's easy to over toss for it. Also, after I make the first right hand lunge to the sidepull and stack my left hand under my right on the tiny edge, I set my feet to the right and dyno up with my left hand. This beta worked well for me. And to whoever stole my biners off the top of this route I say, "You, my cheap conscienceless sociopath, are a tool!".

Comments: Barrio traverse is a fantastic way to work hard moves on a route length bouldering problem. My advice on this problem/route: do not underestimate the second crux. Climbing through the cave crux is only the beginning. Also start the route from the sit start at the far left. Those moves are great too and add to the difficulty of the first crux. It's really an intense training tool as well. Once you get it. Add a 10 pound weight belt to your traverse and watch your forarms become machines of raw, c... more >>

Comments: I climbed this route last Friday, and I must say, that if there was a hollow flake on it; it's gone now. This route is spectacular, and a new Shelf favorite for me. The sustained climbing is great and I feel that it is solid 12b. I sent the route as dark storm clouds and big gusts of wind were coming in. What a way to send the Hurricane. My only complaint is that bolt 10 is way off to the left. It was kind of weird. But other than that the route is perfect! I HIGHLY recommend this route!

Comments: I actually find no aspect of this route difficult and feel 5.11d is more appropriate. I also feel that the top move is not really painful and using a spyder mitt to do it is gay! Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Comments: The moves up to the crux on this route are a great warm-up. HUGE holds up a great dihedral with some mellow stemming. The crux is way harder than the rest of the route. You will get to a small sidepull edge for your hand on the other side of the arret, and you will stuff your left foot into a slot. Drop your left knee and torque your foot hard. It will strongly seat your left foot and bring your left hip up and in so you can make a slow reach for an edge on a small, sloping shelf. A cool boulder... more >>

Comments: None of these comments really describe where the rocks are. Is this area on Keystone the ski mountain? If so, where on the mountain? North, South, East , West face? How far up the mountain? Are there trails. Where should I start from to get there? Do these questions seem reasonable? I would just like to go there, as I will be attending a conference at Keystone and want to get some climbing in.

Comments: I agree. This route is 12a/b and really fun. The first three clips are a jug haul to a small roof. Then you move left and reach up for this crack (this is the part that I felt was the crux) , rock up on the lip and you're in a great position to rest. Then you crank through a couple more moves and out to your left is this killer hold that if you get it right, you get another massive rest. The rest of the climbing is straightforward and fun. I think this route definitely gets 3 stars.

Comments: Actually, I'm not Dan but his cool chick, Jenelle. Many thanks to whoever repaired the chopped hangers at The Cornerstone. It's really a fine solid rock with 6 good routes for their grades. All can be done in a short period of time, even on your lunch break. The only slip in June - Aug. is that it is extremely hot. I recommend after 5pm or early morning. This is excellent choice for winter climbing and great for a mixed party of beginner and advanced climbers.

Comments: I climbed this route today and had the same experience Bill had. Once you get the jam there is this little something stabbing you in the back of your hand. I myself had no spyder mitt, so for just one moment, I decided to be like that Sven guy that can't pump himself enough on this website, and [very briefly]became more manly. This fleeting infusion of "Sven-focus" allowed me to make the painful pull to the crimp. Bill, when you get back from Yosemite you must make your hand more "Sven-like" but... more >>

Comments: I agree that this route is tricky to onsight. When I climb it I blow the first clip off. Its too out of line with the rest of the climb. The jug haul to the mantle I found not tough as long as you mantel farther left on the mantel shelf and just use some of the pockets on the face to help pull yourself up. It was moving past the mantel that I got confused on. Don't climb it straight up. Traverse up and right to an ok edge to clip from and then get a killer finger lock in the lower crack area to ... more >>

Comments: Climb is very continuous with a good jug a little above the mid point to take some of the edge off of your lactic burn. There is also a deep mono that you can shake out on. This route deserves 3 stars and is a must do for the grade. Nothing on the route is harder than 11c but the endurance test is what makes it really fun!
