Comments: I would disagree with Leo that there are two pitches to this route. Yes, there is rock below the starting ledge, but I tried my best to find something harder than Class 4 to get up to the big ledge below where the meat of the route starts. Easy scramble in approach shoes and a pack on. Overall, the route is only 25 feet long (not 65) but fun!

Comments: I personally think this route is as hard, if not harder, than Blue Flame. Might be the size of my fingers?

Comments: Different, but certainly no harder than Blue Flame, IMO. I really thought no harder than 11c. Not trying to be a tough guy and downgrade a full number grade, but you reach from a jug to a decent sloper, lock in the bomber heelhook and reach to a decent to poor hold. Then bump to a jug. I warmed up on this route, and I legitimately had more difficulty on The Harder They Come than this thing. Perhaps it's a size thing. I'm tall (but overhangs and roofs are my biggest weakness), and I have ... more >>

Comments: Not totally a bomb, but also not really a star either. Only the first pitch is independent terrain. P2 no matter how you do it is a different route.

Comments: I think this was a great find - snuck in between some old, established routes on a big wall (by Boulder Canyon standards anyway). I would agree with Dana that the bolt underneath the third roof is not ideally located, and it would be a lot better if it were moved. Especially since, as Seth said, that the big feature under the final roof is going to break sooner rather than later.

Comments: In reference to the two-bolt traverse route into the crack just left of War Zone et al, I was told this line was never actually completed. Maybe I'm wrong. Either way, I sent it about a month ago after trying it a few random times over the last two years. I'd say 12+(ish).

Comments: Fantastic, tbol! I'd like to redpoint the route now that it has safer hardware. I also brushed it a bit, so the top should be nicer, too. Let's be in touch once the closures lift.

Comments: I didn't know what to expect with a comment like the "bolts are old and questionable, with the third being the best". Turns out that was a bit of an understatement. The first two bolts were buttonheads with Leeper hangers and the second one was half pulled and bent. I wouldn't have trusted it to hold body weight personally, let alone a lead fall. The third bolt was a wedge bolt with a thin SMC hanger that's collar wouldn't tighten in the hole with a wrench - it just kept spinning and wiggling an... more >>

Comments: I replaced the nut and missing hanger on the wedge bolt on P5. Thanks to the BCC for providing the hardware, please consider donating to them if you don't already as 100% of every dollar you donate goes directly to things like this.

Comments: The mixed metal anchor has been upgraded to full stainless steel thanks to the BCC's bolt replacement program. Please support them if you don't already.

Comments: All the bolts on both pitches have been replaced. 100% of the holes were able to be reused. Thanks to the BCC for the hardware; please support them if you don't already. Note for later: the left bolt on the P2 anchor is mixed metal; the bolt is plated and the hanger/ring is stainless. I'm not sure when this particular bolt was replaced, but it was probably done by Mark Rolofson in the early 2000s when he bolted the project to the left. That bolt will need upgrading long befor... more >>

Comments: I would like to clear up some misinformation/history on this route. I re-climbed these routes twice (ones last week and once the week before that). I also tracked down first ascentionists, and asked several people that have done both The Reamer and Lichen to Like to clear this up. This pitch, as described here, is a new route known as Olympic Swimmer. It does cross Lichen to Like at about the 75-foot mark, just below the second retrobolt (hollow-sounding flakes). Lichen to Like keeps angling up ... more >>

Comments: This really should just be described as the retrobolted first pitch of Astrophysics. Anyone that has climbed the Simmer/Slimmer/Shimmer/Bolt Cola routes knows there's not enough real-estate to shove in all these routes, and to quote Richard Rossiter's Rock Climbing Boulder Canyon book from 1999, "Climb the first 80 feet of Astrophysics...." Furthermore, Rossiter describes the first pitch of Astrophysics to start off a pointed flake (as D'Antonio describes the start to Bolt Cola). Rossit... more >>

Comments: 15 years ago Craig Weinhold and I went up to Blob Rock for some wintertime cragging, and I unfortunately had forgotten my climbing shoes. Not wanting to squander a perfect t-shirt weather winter day, we made the best of it. We climbed this and the other two unknown routes that day (amongst all the Shimmer/Simmer routes). It's a shame they have been bolted.

Comments: As the description says, the original rusted 3/8" stud bolt with rusted, thin SMC hanger has been replaced. The threads were stripped on the stud and the nut glued, but the whole bolt spun with the nut itself when trying to loosen the nut, which prevented being able to remove the nut as well as the bolt itself and thus preventing reusing the same hole. The new bolt location is a little closer to the arete, which makes it actually a touch easier to clip on the lead. Anyway, thanks to the Boulder ... more >>
