Comments: Like Steve, I was also compelled to climb the face directly following the bolts. Honestly, I couldn't figure out a way to traverse out to the arete. This climb is an extremely technical, beautiful face that makes me remember why I love Eldo so much.

Comments: Definitely small gear. Definitely not PG-13. It's safe and fun. Do it.

Comments: This climb, and its companion, Conan, are two of the funnest cracks I have done in Boulder Canyon. If this is your grade, these are not to be missed! The protection is fantastic. GEAR BETA - In the interest of safety, there's a bomber 0.75 BD C4 (or Black Metolius) at the start, followed by a confidence inspiring Green #0 BD C3.

Comments: This is definitely an amazing line. In my opinion it is the most consistently quality climb of all of the El Potrero multi-pitch routes. I think the rock quality is great overall, and the climbing is super fun. The 12a pitch is good, but I do think it is way harder than any other 12a at El Potrero, and not only because it's so high up on the wall!

As for the speed record... I'm sure this climb could be done extremely quick. On 3/8/06, Tom Grundy and I climbed from the base to the summit in ... more >>

Comments: Sorry for having to post something that doesn't pertain to most people, but I'm hoping that the right person reads this... Unfortunately, I absent-mindedly left my GriGri and locking biner at the Wall of Justice on Sunday 9/30. They were probably left on, or near, the flat spot on the right side of the wall. I can definitely identify the gear if necessary. Thanks!

Comments: Wow! The first pitch alone on this climb is one of the best 11s in the canyon, but linking all 3 pitches into a 160' pitch makes it absolutely amazing. I just wanted to post a current comment that says that the "3rd pitch" seemed completely solid to me. Don't be afraid of loose flakes, I didn't find any. I also have to agree that the "3rd pitch" is the crux of the climb. Even with a great rest before it, the moves feel way harder than the "2nd pitch crux". I realize it's all relative, but ... more >>

Comments: WOW! What an amazing route. Definitely could be a little scary through the 11b section, but if you can commit to the moves, it flows so nice! The gear is scarce, but it gave me enough courage to make the moves. (It also helped that I did it a couple of times on TR first.) After passing the mental crux, the movement through the 12a section is one of the coolest sequences I've ever done. HIGHLY a TR or as a very fulfilling lead (if you are comfortable with a committing runou... more >>

Comments: This is a note going out to the party climbing ahead of us on The Edge today (Sun 10/16/05)... We have the cam that you forgot to clean. Send me an email: (reachjimmy at gmail). Tell me where you left it and what kind of piece it was so I make sure I'm getting it back to the right person. I'll meet you at The Southern Sun some time and you can buy me a beer!

ALSO...If you were THE GUY IN THE ROAD WITH THE TRIPOD while we were climbing the 4th & 5th pitch: Get in touch if you have any pics ... more >>

Comments: I climbed The Flying Buttress Direct on Tuesday, 7/19/05 (Great Climb!). On the 4th class approach right below the start of the climb, I found a climbing shoe. It was a right shoe, size 40.5, La Sportiva Miura. Let me know if you are missing it... (reachjim_at_hotmail)
