Location: Colorado : Fort Collins : Poudre Canyon : Triple Tier Area : The Sail : Velvet Brown (5.10c)

Comments: The movement on this route is really engaging, committing, and sustained. Every move felt like a 5.10 move with no filler. The rock has definitely cleaned up well. The sequence between the first and second bolt is cruxy and gets you in the correct head space right away. Great climbing and amazing exposure.

Comments: Definitely no 5.12 moves on this. The climbing is consistantly in the 5.10 range until the roof which is the crux. I've seen the roof climbed at least 6 different ways depending on style and body size so do whatever works for you. All the stars for this one.

Comments: This either needs to be listed as mixed, or someone should add a bolt. The runout without a cam placement is R rated at least.

Comments: Use the left finish! The thin dihedral is the best bit.

Comments: The exposure on the last 15 feet had me grinning ear to ear. Really sharp holds, but a totally classic climb.

Comments: Fantastic climbing! A few of the bolts have become spinners and are in need of tightening.

Comments: Nice! And you think V8 is the grade? Do you have more specific beta for me to add to the description? Start holds, etc? Also, what name do you have in mind?

Comments: If you are under 5.10, the upper crux feels substantially harder. Nonetheless, this is a great route. Go climb it! (Also, I agree about the first bolt placement. Should be able to clip while standing on the flake, and should be further right) - it's funny that people have been saying that now for 13 years with no change, haha.

Comments: This route went safely with three nuts - a small one to protect the thin, vertical crack at the start, a very small one where the crack goes horizontal, and a medium one in the good slot that's used for a left hand hold. From there, it's clear to the top. Fun line!

Comments: I don't know what the rational was for placing the anchor of Dihedral and Arresting Arete 30 feet beyond the cliff up a chossy trough. It makes top roping impossible from the anchors and is a royal pain in the ass. The routes would be much improved by simply adding an anchor at the top of the vertical portion of these climbs.

Comments: The line is beautifully obvious until the last bolt. It appears from the chalk that many people have trended to the right, ending on a jug about 4 feet to the right and slightly above the anchors. This makes clipping the chains incredibly awkward and is not the correct line. The route actually bends slightly left of vertical at the top and climbs, more or less, directly to the chains. The holds and movement are better this way, if a bit less obvious.

Comments: Very fun and relaxed route! It went really easily on just a single set of nuts. I think I used 4 of them in total.

Comments: Maybe my favorite route at Ten Sleep so far. Really fun, juggy, pumpy climbing. Crux at the bitter end.

Comments: What a fantastic route! Wish there was more of it. I highly recommend starting the route directly on the arete instead of to the left. This adds 3 or so bouldery moves. If you want beta on the roof, read the next sentence. In the overhang, stay to the left and make moves to get your left hand on the point of the large triangle-shaped feature. From there, make a long reach with your right to the lip of the overhang. From that position, you can pretty easily crank through it. Good luck!

Comments: Nice and straightforward if you figure out where to put your right foot. A nice break from the many puzzling sequences you come up against in Big Bend.

Comments: What a fun problem! Just tricky enough to be interesting. The crux is figuring out how to hold that jumble of sloped dishes before you go to the top. (Pinch it)

Comments: Not quite as long, or as good as Cheerleaders Gone Hippie, but certainly worth taking a lap on! Some good movement on solid rock.

Comments: Most mellow route at The Palace. I can't count how many people I have belayed on this route for their first outdoor lead. Nice on ramp for beginners.
