Comments: As per the 2013 comment re human waste, there is now a wagbag box at the Little Eiger, sponsored by Foothills Climbing Community and JeffCo Open Space. Donations accepted to help continue this program. Please help keep CCC clean!


Location: Colorado : Golden : Clear Creek Canyon : Little Eiger : "Is Our Children Learning?" (5.9+)

Comments: Care should still be exercised re: the belay ledge. Stick clip, place gear, or be careful. At the top at the last bolt, it seems easier to go right, but there is a loose block in the corner.

Our 70m rope was just long enough.

Comments: Still dirty and thus insecure. 5.9, IMHO.

Comments: This route has cleaned up and has amazingly incut holds. Still, a 5.8 rating would be more appropriate.

Comments: No way this is 5.8! Have climbed it twice now, once on lead.

Comments: There is crumbly rock below the second overhang; both my friend and myself knocked off baseball-sized blocks with our feet. Agree that it would be difficult to lead. Best to TR. We set up an anchor above Pine Tree Eliminate though a fall would have a bit of a pendulum at the top.

Comments: I would agree with Jay. Good pro at the bottom and top of the route. A bit runout in the middle, but the climbing is 5.2 or so.

Comments: This is now the 3rd route coming in from the right. It is clean, but one should wear a helmet anyway while climbing. The crux is the start. 5.8, way easier than Labby, 5.9-.

Comments: Like many popular North Table climbs, the holds have become polished over the years, but maybe more so here due to its proximity to the approach trail.

Comments: Way harder than 5.9+. I climbed it with 2 climbers who are competent at 5.10 - 5.11, and they had a hard time as well.

Comments: We did all the routes rated 10b and easier today, and all have cleaned up nicely from the previous times I have been here. Fun moderate routes in a nice setting for CCC.


Location: Colorado : Golden : Lookout Mountain Road : Tiers of Zion : B. Upper Tier : ... : If Your Well Runs Dry (5.8-)

Comments: One can also start this route, missing the first 2 bolts on dirty rock, from the ledge at the bottom of the 3rd Triangle, right at the beginning of the trad route in the dihedral, Bloody Lady Di. One can then rappel from the anchors of If Your Well Runs Dry to the bottom of the climb and the ramp at the right bottom of the 2nd Triangle, avoiding a scary downstep. No handline was in place yesterday.

Comments: There are 4 campgrounds in the canyon. Can anyone comment on which are the best for 1. convenience to 11 Mile Dome, Arch Rock, Pine Conem, and Turret?
2. Shade for our non-climbing wives? 3. privacy? Doug Redosh

Comments: Some clarification because if there is not fresh chalk on the climb the easiest way could be a bit confusing to find:
Pitch 4: aim up and left on unprotected slab for the bolt that is BEFORE the corner. The finger crack traverse left above the corner has some glacial polish that is very slick for the feet (hence the climb's name?)
Pitch 5: follow easy crack up and left to alcove
Pitch 6: climb R out of alcove and continue R and up on unprotected slab (5.7) to a 3" hole (perhaps a large tricam h... more >>

Comments: Also, a 5.8 section and a 5.6 section do NOT average to 5.7 just as a 5.11 section with a 5.9 section don't average to 5.10! Grading is done for the hardest move of a climb.

Comments: The block referred to above is loose and is just sitting on a ledge. My partner put a nut behind it for an anchor that got stuck, because the block moved slightly to accomodate it, then moved back. I went back the next day to remove the stopper and noticed this slight movement. It probably should NOT be trusted as an anchor, though it did hold my partner's body weight. Probably best to move up and L to the anchors atop SS Minnow (belaying there, not for TR), or up and right up an easy gully, the... more >>

Comments: As of Dec. 18, 2015, there is a #1 Camalot stuck in the upper crack. Leo P. thought hitting downward with a chisel might get it out, but he worked on it for 15 mins or so with a nut pick.

Comments: No glass shards as of 4 days ago, but my partner was cleaning the corner to the L and got a shard in his finger.
Fun climb, with a pumpy crux. Harder than Undisclosed Location.

Comments: Very fun, thin face climbing. Holds appear just when you need them. It looks blank from the ground between bolts 1 and 3, but the holds show up!

Comments: I felt this was 5.7+, a little harder and steeper than the 5.7 to the left.

Comments: P1 is 5.5.
P2 is 5.4.
The Horn Pipes variation is 5.7 and the best pitch. Nice exposure. Would use long slings on the first 2-3 bolts as well. Why no animal name for this pitch?
There is also an old piton on P1.

Comments: 10c. The new guidebook gives this a 10a, but 2/3 of us felt that this was the hardest of the 5 climbs here. Tricky stem with thin finger holds in the crack. You have to get your left foot up pretty high.

Location: Colorado : Golden : Clear Creek Canyon : Play Pen : Recess (5.10c)
By: Doug Redosh When: Nov 8, 2014

view comment >>
Comments: 10c/d. The new guidebook rates this, and the climb to the left, as 10a and the easiest of the 4 bolted routes. I thought this climb was the hardest, at least the pumpiest of the 5 routes currently here.
