Location: Colorado : Alpine Rock : RMNP - Rock : The Foil : The Poc Club (5.11)

Comments: Rappel info: some cord needed to replace some of the old webbing at the summit. Rap Northeast about 80' or so to an anchor to the east on a grassy ledge at top of descent gully. You can see this from the summit. It's climber's right of the route. Then rap almost full 60m length with double ropes to another anchor in the gully and to climber's right of above anchor. Final double rope rap gets you within 30' of the start, so no need to bring shoes on the route. Rap length abou... more >>

Comments: We had #1-4 Camalots, double #1-#3s, and 3 or 4 each of #0.75-0.5, then 3 green Aliens size, and doubles blue and black Aliens and stoppers. We did the route in 4 pitches. P1 crux pitch as described above, then P2, go up about 10' from the belay and traverse left under the crescent arch, then traverse left about 30' or so (5.7R) to a right-facing dihedral and up that about 20' to a belay on the left (square 2'x2' belay ledge was nice). P3, continue up the right-facing corner ... more >>

Comments: Agreed, I just did The Big Steep, and that's P3.

Comments: The fixed pin on P1 of the description above is hard to clip if you're short and not 5.8. I can't imagine setting an optional belay here with the bad rock. The traverse into the 10c corner isn't bad and protects with blue and green Aliens, it's not "R" rated. A new #4 BD Camalot was nice to have on the 10c pitch after the traverse and just when starting the corner. A #5 Camal... more >>

Comments: Agree it was not 10a or even near 10a and was worth doing on second with some fun moves.

Comments: The start is about 100ft climber's left of Rainbow Highway. It's just around the big corner separating the view of Rainbow Highway. There are other visible slings on a different pillar another 50' left, but that's not the start. I couldn't see the white slings on the correct pillar at top of P1 until I was close to them. The route is very physical, and I thought much harder than Rainbow Highway. T... more >>

Comments: There now is a fixed black Alien at the crux on P4 in the small dihedral after the bolt. Reward for anyone that rescues Sonia's Alien.

Comments: Found an old style, rigid Friend at the base of Kor's Route. If it's yours, contact me with size of cam and tape markings and I'll get it back to you. Thanks everyone for the beta in the previous comments. Climbed the route Saturday and found the info very helpful. Couldn't get a Camalot in the shallow, horizontal slot after the P5 crux, so I assume you really need the old style Friend as mentioned. Luckily the good RP placement isn't too far up. Also, don't underestimate the amount of cli... more >>

Comments: There is a fixed stopper at the roof move which was quite nice to have. Overall, a neat pitch with some interesting moves.

Comments: Fun route! I would agree the runout on P2 is vs, but the climbing above is quite fun.

Comments: The route has fun some fun moves, but it's a bit dirty with some suspect rock. It's fairly sustained, and I would recommend being solid on 5.10 due to some tricky gear placements and fall potentials on bad rock.

Comments: Great Route! What a blast tunneling through the guillotine! I surely wouldn't have wanted to be any bigger.

Comments: A neat route with an incredible view. P1 and P2 are rightly graded. P3 is quite the squeeze and not perfect back and foot as the book mentions. Overall, it's worth doing since the setting is so spectacular.

Comments: Yes the 2nd pitch is one of the best hand cracks I've done in the desert. You can stem back and get some rests at the beginning. Take advantage of this as the crux is quite overhanging. After finishing, don't rap too far at once or it is quite difficult to pull your ropes.


Location: Utah : Moab Area : Indian Creek : The Bridger Jacks : Rim Shot (5.11-)

Comments: Make sure to continue P1 out of the pod and to a small ledge with a pin. Otherwise it is quite difficult for your partner to pass by.If you are "short" or not good at offwidth climbing (like me), the crux of pitch 3 is getting into the crack after chimneying behind the flake. A #4 camalot or wide cam is great for this. The rest of the pitch is quite casual and very cool!P5 is VERY loose to say the least. Overall Rim Shot is an enjoyable climb and in the shade most of the day which is n... more >>

Comments: I finally broke on back through to 5.10 this weekend after not climbing much this winter. I'd agree it's not one of the easiest 10s in Eldo and wouldn't recommend it to a beginning 5.10 leader. The pro is good, but there's still a ledge below you.
