luquitos,

Thanks for the update on cultural artifacts in and around DETO.

Again, the Dowes court that set the framework of this settlement argument has said this is a religious dispute and not the NPS's CMP case of cultural infringement. All the cultural artifacts mean nothing for this case. For the purpose of religious practices on Federal property other than Indian Reservations all parties have equal access and they are subject to noises and visual impacts of ... more >>

Comments: from luquitos,

from the Devils Tower Climbing Management Plan [CMP]

"It is within the existing authority of the monument Superintendent to close areas to certain activities to protect natural and cultural resources."

"The NPS maintains that future management actions could take place including a mandatory closure. The mandatory closure language is present to show that we are seriously committed to protecting a cultural resource and to acknowledge American Indian concerns. The NP... more >>

Comments: Here is another interesting disclosure that happened at the start of the Climbing Management Group. The team was to consist of 2 climbing group's representatives and 2 Native Americans and others that I have forgotten. The Park Service got two Native Americans form the seven associated tribes that claim past interest in the Tower.

While at the first Management Plan Meeting the two Native American Representatives said they had no problem with climbers on the Tower during their Spiritual Que... more >>

Comments: Ken M,

The AGREEMENT was voluntary. The action agreed to in the agreement, was to not climb.

Climbers stated, voluntarily, that "I will not climb in the month of June"

From what you have said it seems you do not know much of what went on at DETO during that part of the management plan and you are flatly wrong on how the word voluntary came about. We climbers never stated such an utterance.

There was never an agreement [like you suggest] reached with climbers and the Park administr... more >>

Comments: It has been said that those who forget history are condemned to repeat it. I was a participant at Devils Tower in those days of the initiation of the Devils Tower Climbing Management Plan Circa 1994. I have had several requests to post my experience of those times here on Mt. Project where such evidence may have some form of long lasting existence and posting it here does help to level the playing field as to whose words are heard on this matter as I cannot with my limited resources c... more >>

Comments: From Rollingrock's words, You going to tell me you climbed all those routes without bolts, say back in the day?

I get the feeling he (Rollingrock) thinks climbing these routes without bolts is somewhat unlikely? When I first visited the 4 Stories Cliff there were no bolts and a lot of loose rock.

I will apply Rollingrock's line of thinking that he applied to me but ask him, "You['re] going to tell me you climbed all those routes without bolts, say back in the day? "

Comments: Finally, a personal email from Rollingrock: How about you prove to me! I called, show your cards.

Horning replies:

This isn't poker dude. But for the record I called you first. Can you remember?

From Rollingrock: No I put a post on forum saying that you weren't the first to climb here. That's the call ! I called you out ! So you going to sit there and and not tell when you first claimed there? You going to tell me you climbed all those routes without bolts, say back in the day? I've got ... more >>

Comments: The current Governor of Wyoming, Matt Mead, has decided to open a website-map/database that shows whether a parcel of state owned land has public access. He did this in hopes of lowering confrontations that occur with ranchers and the general public that recreates on these parcels.

Comments: Rollingrock,

You sound like a genuine trolling wind bag. It is interesting to see you just joined this internet show on Sept 30, 2014 and have 1 point to your name.

How about some real climbers names, dates, location, pictures & descriptions?

Do you have any standing with your comment of such shallow substance?


You say, local Platte Valley climbers. Some of these sport routes were put up by Woody Barmore then of Walcott Junction and his domocile location is no doubt of the ... more >>

Comments: Aaron,

the 4 routes I posted we put up in 1994. Since then, Zach O and crew have put up more routes east of mine [near the SE corner] and I hear there is a route to the summit. I suspect Zach will not contribute any to this site as he is working on a guide book for it. In fact he does not cooperate with me to post what he has done. If you need routes names to post, think of some and use 'em. We can do an "AKA" when we see his completed book with other names for the same route.

Feel free t... more >>

Comments: Jason,

the rock is just above the canyon-bottom-granite and I suspect some portion of it is the Madison FM. The WY geology map tells one what is on the top. ..Some sandstone, limestone and dolomite cemented together and much stronger than it looks.

The right side is not as steep so there will be some warm up climbs for old guys and gals. The season will be over soon.

Comments: After leaving Stonnerville, WY Mica Burns spent 5 hrs driving 10 miles to find the Cliffs Beyond Difficulty. He attributed his difficuty to misreading these photo maps but I think he misread the labels on the Colorado Prescription which I did not write.

Comments: CJC,

my ego tells me the other side is insecure-uninformed control freaks that are not in control on this matter. If you guys really don't want to see this area not used why not form a pact in which members vow not to go into this area? But you lame hearts choose to use this internet instrument as the perpetrator for the shortfall of your grandiose views of preservation. Get some balls you weenies and act.

Cheers to Free Speech,

Dingus

Comments: There is BLM land just east and south of the north park exit off WY 317. No BLM maintained road exists for getting to this adjacent land but there is an ad hoc 2-track that ends after 200 feet at a make-shift campsite/firepit in the trees and shrubs. The pathway seems smooth enough for a Prius but there is not a lot turning around room.

Worried about clearance? Park your car [Low Belly] adjacent to the road and walk the 200 feet? There are other potential camping sites in this zo... more >>

Comments: The sections of "description", "protection" & "location" are not displaying for this route.

The climb is more typically a hand crack on the NNW side of the spire.

Comments: Taken from above: ...Joe Kelsey's book Climbing & Hiking in the Wind River Mountains for more details.

More details?? Getting him to publish such worthwhile stuff would be like talking to a wall.

That book is a perfunctory list of routes.

Comments: Ryan,

I have added data for 2 routes. Help yourself to the Working Traverse route to get above the good potential lines of the east face. The traverse is a little sketchy in that there are many big loose/sitting boulders on the ridge top and good pro is not obvious or easy. I think we took the hangers from the start of the working Traverse, but the bolts [w/nut?] are still on the fins north end. You say "not visible", that is likely as we used dark colored welded cold shuts for this kind of ... more >>

Comments: The route still needs a proper FFA

And this discription lacks the right rating?

How about 5.13, A0 to be consistent with the rest of the tale?

Comments: Jeremy Schaar,

also you state the climb length as 130 ft. Absurd, the Cleveland route lies on the SE face and is perhaps the shortest way to the summit. I'd say from there, 45 feet of climbing with no protection in sight.

Comments: You did not do the Cleveland route, for it lies entirely to the left of the Barber Route. You stated you clipped the Barber bolt.

Comments: From that discussion on Supertopo that Rich Goldstone refers to, “ I think I understand where Dingus is coming from but I'm not going to present his side of the case here” I will present my case not for the sake of another bolt on this pin but in hopes that most climbers understand that my case is built using Henry Barber’s own logic and beliefs about an areas’ sovereignty.

Now Henry was the man to preach about the greatness of Dresden climbing and its rules. He thought it would be grea... more >>

Comments: These GSP yurts rent for $50/day. You bring the fire wood. Probably will sleep at least 4 comfortably, with the 2 large bunk beds.
