Comments: I have done the route without using the undercling. If it goes, it's okay. If someone reinforces the hold, that's fine too.

Comments: I installed an anchor on the comfy ledge below the original anchors on the first pitch (of Solid Gold) to help facilitate 2-way traffic and also so you don't have to do the hanging belay. It should make life much easier for people, since every other comment about this route is how the hanging belay sucks, lol.

Comments: Go for it, just be sure and put a steel carabiner at the bottom of the chain, no aluminum, please!

Comments: The route names left to right are: Lesser of Two Evils, Overflow Direct, and Thinning the Heard, and I bolted them. I named the area The Overflow because it's where you climb when Catslab is overflowing with people and you can't find an open route. I typically don't post my routes to MP right away, but there's the names for ya.

Comments: The second pitch to this route is called Scenic Ride 11a, 3 stars, and the FA is Kevin Capps, 2016. It has some of the best moderate roof climbing in the canyon. It's 140' to the ground from the anchor, but you can make it to the top of the ramp with some stretch on a 70m rope.

Comments: Mark, I believe you are referring to Tod Anderson's Denver Climbing Guide. You are correct, the bolt counts, grades, a couple names, and even some topo lines are inaccurate for this wall in his book.

Comments: Agreed, fun route! My only comment was that it was on the easier side of the grade being 5'11''. I thought it was 12+, but maybe it's 13- if you're a little shorter.

Comments: I haven't been on it in a couple years, but maybe I'll check it out and see if any of the little credit card crimps out left broke off. It is a great winter spot, since it gets sun in the morning. Glad you enjoyed it!

Comments: Stick clip very, very mandatory! If you don't want to die. Heinous approach!

Comments: Easy there, 2chains. These climbs are fun, and it's a great way to avoid crowds. Put up just one quality line in the canyon, and you'll see how hard it is to clean routes. How about a little less trolling.

Comments: Ya, it's a fun little line! It rarely gets climbed though, so lichen seems to want to grow. Worthy of some attention for sure.

Comments: Ya, I stayed slightly right of the arête for the crux on the FA. I watched a tall person go way left on toprope. It's a totally different route if you go way left and probably impossible to clip, but also a bit contrived if you force yourself to go right. It's definitely a funky crux and a little sharp.

Comments: No, it's not part of the closure. You are free to climb there. Highlander, Evil, and Tetanus Gardens are closed now for the Tunnel 2 closure.

Comments: If you start down and right of the first bolt on the face and traverse left just above it, this route turns into a 12b start. Kind of a fun variation.

Comments: Really savage crimping by the first bolt! This is definitely the best route on the wall, as far as rock quality and movement. I gave it an extra star for that reason. The crux right sidepull crimp is going to break soon, I crumbled a little bit of it already. Fun climbing though, nice find, Mark!
