Comments: This is a fun route with good climbing down low and a crux move up high. Nice job, Luke!

Comments: Thanks to Larry for the great history of the area. It is good to see that wall and route names are being changed to reflect the originals. Also thanks to Larry, Steve, & Co. for your efforts in establishing so many early Cascade classics!

Comments: We went to check this route out earlier this summer and this is what we found:

Pitch 1 – scramble up to a right-facing, right-angling wide corner. Climb this to its top, and exit out right and belay on a good ledge. This is the same first pitch as for Central Buttress. (~150’)

Pitch 2 – continue almost straight up past a variety of cracks, aiming for the main corner system that splits the face. Belay at a good ledge with a slung chockstone. (~200’)

Pitch 3 – continue past more jumbled cr... more >>

Comments: Good route, albeit short. Good hands at the start quickly go to #.75 & #1's before going back to hands at the top. (2-3) of each #.75-#2 Camalots should do it.

Comments: Pitch 1 - Climb crack and face past a fixed pin (can't really see from ground) to a roof. Pull the roof on finger locks (felt hard for 5.10) and step left to a junky crack. Climb this crack past a small tree to a ledge. Climb 15' higher to a second ledge and belay from a good-sized tree.

Pitch 2 - Move up/left and follow a low-angle finger crack up a dirty groove to a tree at the top. The climbing isn't hard, but the crack is full of dirt/grass and you have to "garden-out" placements for gear. ... more >>

Comments: Climbed this today for the first time in a long time. The bolts still seem solid enough but those hangers could definitely be upgraded. Good route that should see more traffic.

Comments: Anyone know anything about this one? Would I be stepping on any toes to finish bolting? The line is kinda fun!

Comments: Been a long time since I've been on this thing, but I do remember some old hardware. I'm all for replacing the bolts. East A has been a great local crag to many of us for many years and now has its share of aging hardware. It is a costly and time consuming process to make upgrades. Many thanks!

Comments: This thing climbs much better than it looks. A couple suspect blocks, but good fun. The anchor could use a new bolt.

Comments: I thought I might add that this is a really good route. Yes, it has some bat shit and loose rock, but it is a good wide-crack adventure. Wrestle up a wide, left-facing corner to a roof, pull through into a wide splitter, pass the guano block, then work left and continue with varied crack climbing to a bolted anchor at the top. Bring a standard East A rack plus a #4 and a (2-3) #5s, no #6 is needed. A few runners are nice too. (~100')

Comments: The topo/description above seem pretty accurate, exception being the 3 star rating?

P1 is fun - a short section of fingers and a cool face-traverse under a roof. P2 says to step left, then back right, etc. We just climbed straight up the crack/groove (~5.8) aiming for the short 5.10 fingers section shown as the start of P3. This section is short and over almost as soon as you get into it (~5.9). P4 has some big stacked blocks that might(?) be solid. On P5, the traverse under the roof to gain t... more >>

Comments: The beta above is pretty accurate, as is the topo in the guide. There is a large cairn at the base, so no drama in finding the start (it is also directly across from the Balanced Rock Overlook. Relatively straight-forward route finding and comfortable belays. Hard 5.10 crux with lots of moderate climbing. Still some looseness but not too bad. Shade until 1-2pm (late April). Took 8 pitches - linked 2 & 3, 4 & 5, 6 & 7, 12 & 13. Brought (2) green Alien - #3 Camalot, (1) black - blue Alien, ... more >>

Comments: Thought this was a fun route. Never really hard...yet never really easy...and kinda physical throughout. Brought gear to a #5 Camalot (new), nothing bigger is needed. Easy to rap KI with a single 70m rope from nice ASCA bolts. Thanks!

Comments: P2 (~100', 5.10) Mostly thuggish cups/fists with a couple wider spots and some hands deep in there too. Seemed to eat up #2/3 Camalots and a #4 is nice to have. Ends at 2 bolts & 2 drilled angles.

Comments: One of the better crack climbs around Durango. No move is that hard, just kinda thuggish overall. Does get a little sandy with rain, but it is East A.
