Comments: As a reminder, this area is WITHIN the raptor closure. Please OBEY these CLOSURES! I would hate to see the Forest Service enforce further closures of these formations along with other areas because of the lack of climber responsibility....

Comments: It should be noted there is an active hornet's nest just right of this route under a small roof. Either climb this route early, early morning when it's cool or, even better, wait until the next good freeze. Hornets are lame.

Comments: That "precarious" crux flake broke on me today, and I felt the move without the "extended" flake was significantly harder (I had to aid through it the second time). Maybe I was a little wigged out from breaking 4 inches off?

Meh route.

Comments: I believe this route was originally led on gear. Tsunami, 5.9. The climb actually might be easier on gear, since the bolts are right of the center, but who takes gear to Shelf right?

Comments: We had 5 people climb, 3 lead, and all thought this was harder than Devil's Duodenum. As usual, all ratings are subjective.

Comments: The first pitch of this has some of the WORST rock I have found in the Valley of Gods. If your objective is the summit, do a different route. At least 50 lbs of rock was removed on my ascent (not intentional). YUK.

Comments: The very bottom may require some more gardening; it's acceptable. We removed a lot of thorn bushes.

Thanks, Glen, for the leather gloves!

Comments: I'm 99% certain that holds have broken off this climb after the third bolt based on the photo posted. It felt extremely hard for 11c now that the holds are gone. A wee bit chossy.

Comments: Without a stick clip, the lower section before the first bolt can be protected with a bomber BD C4 #0.75. It would be a pretty tough and scary first bolt without the 0.75 or stick clip.

Comments: The trick we found is to put a cam high in the crack just below the roof and traverse RIGHT out of the roof. Feels somewhat insecure, but the climbing doesn't exceed 5.9. Good footwork required. Once you traverse out, gear is plentiful and the climbing is solid to the top.

Don't be suckered in following the pins directly through or left of the roof.

Comments: Interesting for such the discrepancy. I don't actually own Schmitt's book (only remember glancing over the book at the crag), but I double checked Green's, and it's definitely marked as 11-. Whatever.

Comments: This sure felt like an 11- instead. A wonky 11-. Both of the books - Green's "Rock Climbing Colorado" and Schmitt's "Eleven Miles to Freedom" - agree.

Comments: I thought this was a fun line and a safe lead. For gear, I took double 4s and a single 5 and didn't need anything larger. Also, I don't think I placed anything smaller than a #2.

Comments: As of July 2015, there is a wasp nest in a pocket just 6-8 inches above the first bolt. I was lucky and missed putting my finger in the pocket by staying on edges. The wasps seemed pretty angry when I was eye level with them and lowered off.

Comments: Does anyone know what the bolted line (4-5 bolts) is to the left? I liked it better, but that line felt harder than 11a. 11+?

Comments: Maybe there was a different way for the approach (didn't appear to be?) but we scrambled up the northwest side for the approach (short minor class 4 bands), climbed a 5.9 crack on the northeast side, walked around (counterclockwise) to the south side, scrambled up a class 3 slot and then aided on bolts up the west face to the top.

A double rope rappel down the west face got us to the bottom.

I thought the rock quality on the climbing was fairly good but the rock quality on the scrambling was ... more >>

I'm not sure what things look like in recent years, but that was in 2004. I can't imagine that much have changed??

Comments: C2? Blahahahah...

Our party must have been complete chicken shits too!

No doubt in my mind that's C3 but I suck at climbing.

Comments: This is a two star route for good views and adventure. The actual 5.8 climbing isn't too bad. Everything else, not so much.

Comments: About 15-20 feet up pitch 3 is a loose dinner plate sized rock. It should be removed. There was a party behind us so we didn't want to mess with it. Also, our rope got stuck on that same rock while pulling our ropes on our descent. What a f*#K fest.

For the descent, I would recommend doing a single rope rappel from the summit to the top of pitch 3 and then a double 60M rope rappel to the intermediate anchor on pitch 2 and then another double 60M rope rappel to the ground.

I would... more >>

Comments: There indeed is a new bolt at the end of the traverse on pitch 7. That's why pitch 4 is now the "Spicy Meatball."

Also, that rappel down pitch 7 to the top of pitch 6, it blows. Didn't someone mention someone was going to epic on it? Well, that chap, was me. We wanted to go down Road Kill but was worried about the condition of the anchors. Descending this route sucks!
