Location: Colorado > Lyons > Rabbit Mountain

Comments: Try parking on the east side of Rabbit Mountain off of 75th Street. This is the area Mark Sonnenfeld developed. Turn off of Ute Highway/ 66 at a Czech restaraunt, then drive north on 75th for a couple of miles. Turn left just before 75th jogs and changes names. It is a worthwhile area.

Comments: Bruce Morris (with David Rosenthal)was credited with the first ascent for awhile but he named it Masurbotorium and somehow that didn't go over well. Any recollections Bruce?

Comments: I think that the names Road Runner and 30.06 are reversed. I was with Jeff Achey (around 1980) when he free climbed what is now considered to be Roadrunner. He called it 30.06 because somebody was shooting a rifle nearby while we were climbing. Jeff lead it without trouble and called it 5.11. The crack on the right used to be called Roadrunner (now called 30.06) was climbed often in the 70s and 80s. These routes are both great regardless of what you call them.

Comments: I did a slightly different loop after climbing the North Ridge of Neva. I continued south on the divide about two hours of easy hiking to Devil's Thumb Pass and descended to the the trail to Jasper Lake. Below Jasper Lake about a mile is a marked trail which goes north to Diamond Lake and then back to the car. It took me about 10 hours, and I skirted below Jasper Peak. An energetic team could use this approach to climb Devil's Thumb.

Comments: Dana Ernst, The Pfiffner traverse is roughly from Longs Peak to Arapahoe Peak, but it could be longer like Gerry Roach's version. It is very hard to carry a pack on some of it. Yesterday I traversed from Longs to Pagoda and descended the West Ridge of Pagoda and headed toward Chiefshead, I only had a short piece of rope (60 feet) and used it once for a short rappel on the west ridge. The west ridge of Pagoda is the only 5th class climbing that I know of that isn't on a north ridge and it may ... more >>

Comments: Sorry Matt, Andrew, Rich, Nate, etc. I apologize for going off, and I'll try to clarify myself better in the future.

The route American Beauty is difficult, beautiful and (I think) natural. Chris asked for beta and instead got grief from people who hadn't done the route. Not all routes are chipped, overrated, etc. at the sport park, and climbers are not guilty just for having fun there. I don't support chipping and I hope that chipping is discontinued, as Bob D. thinks has happened.

Comments: No need to apologize Chris. These guys (Rich, Matt, Nate, Andrew) are the same guys who jumped you while trick or treating (in second grade) and stole your candy. They think they are funny. . .

Comments: I soloed this route also and found it to be quite scary. Maybe 5.5 or 5.6 would be a better rating.

Comments: I climbed this route in 1981 with David Brewster (with a rope and gear). I have done it since with the bolts and enjoyed the route again. I don't remember naming the route.

Comments: Make sure you bring Friends up to #3. This is not a sport route. It is well worth doing, but watch out for the loose block.

Comments: I like climbing at the Sport Park and obviously thousands of other climbers do to. I run into lots of old climbing friends from 20 to 30 years ago at the Sport Park. The retaining walls are helping to preserve the area. Thanks for all the hard work and the great routes. There are many people who appreciate the area and love to climb there.
