Location: Colorado > Golden > Clear Creek Canyon > The Canal Zone > Walking With A Ghost (5.11b/c)

Comments: The route felt like a 11+ especially for the OS, where there some bomber crimps that were crap since everyone just smeared a hurdle of chalk around the wall. I'm just wondering why people are rating this 11b or lower? I felt like Reefer Madness was a little easier than this, since this had a consistent, sustained, crimp face and was only 60 ft high.

Comments: OS this weekend. can't we just all agree it's a 11b OS and a 11a redpoint. It basically has a couple of technically moves that if you were trying out for the first time is relatively hard and probably easier on the 2nd or 3rd attempt once you know the sequence.

Comments: Pretty safe Route if you feel confident placing gear on a face crack. Honestly don't let the rating scare you away. Plenty of great feet and hands just avoid going into the crack too deep.

Comments: I'd give this a 11a rating mainly for the first bolt was a committing clip. If you stick clip the first bolt and continue on then I can see it being 10d or softer since your taking away the first major pump of the route.

Comments: at the top old style 2 bolt anchor each with a ring of thin cords. Don't repel of these rings. Best descent either wall off the back or go to Monkey and me and repel of those rings.

Comments: Crux is the 2nd to 3rd bolt getting over the roof with a slight toe on the outside for your right foot. Might seem chossy but is very solid foot then continue over the 3rd bolt and walk to the 4th bolt and easy 5.6 scramble to the anchor.

Comments: Two bouldering moves with a steming section after the 2nd bolt on the lip then your basically finished to anchors

Comments: Great route. Well bolted and safe. Felt sustained 11.d throughout til the top off where you finally get jugs to rest. Requires good footwork and sequencing from left to right getting up the line of the route.

Comments: To get here basically follow the trail from the parking lot up to some early granite. Find trail ducks that lead you into the 2nd section of trees til you are at the base of the dome where you will see slabs leading to the summit. Don't hike the summit. Instead follow the base til the left of the dome on the ground until you see Peanut gallery which is a black wall with a few bolts. Then scramble up a class 2/3 to find the main climbs. the TOPO guide doesn't explain this part about where to walk

Comments: Basically small knobs for feet and hands for the first 3 clips then crimps will become available until you reach a flake.

Comments: Great sustained route. A little overhung to feel the pump for the 2nd half of the route. The start has some greasy holds so chalk up for the first two bolts.
