Location: Colorado : South Platte : Deckers : Bali Dome : Island Express? (5.7)

Comments: I don't believe this route is Island Express (IE). Both the 1988 and the 1998 Hubbel guidebooks list Island Express at 5.9, although they are in different locations on the respective topos. I believe the 1988 is the correct topo showing IE on the far left. The route listed here, and the photos shows the line in the 1998 topo which is nowhere near the 5.9 rating given in the guides.

Either way, I climbed the route on the far left, just right of a corner created by a boulder leaning against t... more >>

Comments: Levi, the directions posted purposefully suck.... The Bordenville (site) is about 10 to 11 miles south of the town of Jefferson on Hwy 77. Pick up an Observatory Rock quadrangle, and it clearly shows it. I believe the forest road is No. 844 that you turn left on from Hwy 77. This road splits and there are lots of obscure rocks back in there, some of which you can access by car, others you can hike to. this area is located at: 39.293191 -105.654504.

Comments: You guys are pathetic. The mantle at the end is the best part of the climb, the fixed anchors are right there on the lip above the mantle, and plus The Highway Man shares the anchor with this climb.

Comments: Checked out this area yesterday! Came in from the East from FR360 and FR205 in an Isuzu Trooper, FR 360 had three sections that were severely eroded the first section will not be possible to cross in a couple of more seasons. But the later two had big drops into a creek running across the road, crossing was tricky but fine. FR 205 "Metberry Gulch" was fine the eroded ravine has been spanned with logs. Although be careful once you can see the Big Rock and then loose sight of it you will go up a s... more >>

Comments: To everyone who can't comprehend what they read! The blame of my comments lies squarley on me! Matt said he did it it his own style and respects everyone else's style. I said I don't. And quite your bickering it's not like the bolts where chopped, I said "when I send this those bolts are gone" but it probably won't happen, so don't worry but you got something to say say it to me cause Matt didn't say anything. So keep drinking your beer at your homes in NM or wherever else you might be.

Comments: Helpful tip, unless you would like to practice your rope management, My Climbing Co guide book said the descent from the top of the First Flatiron requires two ropes. Guess what it doesn't. I wasted my time scrambling this thing and dragging two ropes up while doing it. If you're gonna do the First, it is only 92 ft from the summit eybolts to the ground!

Comments: Climbed this route at the end of may, and it is AWESOME! One of the best routes I have ever done! My partner Matt and I did all 5 pitches to the summit well worth it! The first 4 pitches are amazing. Lose rock only found on the last pitch, but trip to the summit was well worth it. Also FOUND MEMORY CARD on the big ledge at the end of third pitch, if want returned let me know.

Comments: To all the cheap climbing bums out there! especially AC. There is free camping about 11 miles outside of Devil's Tower. Directions are from leaving the park entrance. Leave the park and at the juction turn left toward Hulet, and go less than one mile to a dirt road on the right. Follow the dirt road for about 10 or 11 miles to the Black Hills National Forrest, and please use existing camp sites.
