Comments: Thanks, Joseffa, for the updated beta. It has been years since I have been back on The Diving Board. I will plan to get back on this exhilarating route and update the description!

Comments: Climbed this super route again today. A couple notes - I used a yellow (0.2) BD X4 on the placement at the base of the P2 crux below the bolt. It was fine, but I would have preferred a green Alien. I linked pitch 2 & 3 and had horrendous rope drag by the time I reached the Outer Sspace ledge. Probably better to break it up. Have fun!

Comments: I had the opportunity to climb the first half of Full House (Half House?) yesterday. A few comments - (1) we rapped from the base of the "amazing corner", and it is actually amazing. I can't wait to go back and climb this pitch. When you look at The Diamond from Chasm Lake, this is easily one of the most striking features on the entire face. (2) In general, I thought the rock quality was good. There is some sugary rock (not overly common on The D... more >>

Comments: Generally protects well once you are past the twenty foot groundfall crux runout. Don't fall at the crux. The pin after the second bolt is still gone. There are plenty of placements between the last bolt and the anchor, and it's a clean fall.

Comments: Superb rock quality. We didn't see anyone at the crag.


Location: CO : Grand Junction Area : Colorado National Monument : Independence Monument : Sundial Dihedral (5.11b C1)

Comments: This is a really fun route, classic in my book. Very accessible from the Front Range and does not seem to get much traffic. If you are climbing 10+/11- range at Eldo, you should give a try climbing the whole thing free (except the final aid ladder on pitch 6). For those who are into historical fixed pro, there are plenty of interesting finds on both the route and the descent (drilled angles, Star Dryves, chiseled foot holds on Otto's Route, etc.).

Comments: This is a fun, moderate exploration of Redgarden South Buttress. The rock is good and unpolished. It appears to be seldom climbed. Some great jamming in both dihedral sections. There is a good rappel anchor once you reach the Lower Ramp. It is well-hidden and hard to see. Crest the edge of the ramp, and look slightly down and right. This well below the Touch 'n' Go anchor.

Comments: There is a potential direct finish to the rim above the Sex Comedy finish that is cleaning up nicely. We toproped it yesterday. Felt like solid 5.11, and pro would be nominal in the first 30 feet. It would be a burly lead.

Comments: Climbed this fine route yesterday. The hanger on the pitch 4 retro-bolt has been removed but the bolt is still there. The bolt is unnecessary and detracts from the pitch especially given the route history.

Comments: Not to be captain obvious, but test the fixed gear before aiding on it .. I took a thirty footer after failing to test a fixed stopper on pitch 18 or 19. Don't haul! Do it in a single push. We bivied with space blankets at the base and started at 2am, finished at 8pm. Things got slow in the upper aid pitches when the route came into the sun and water was getting slim. No problems with bears. The water from the spring was clean, cool and plentiful. We did not treat. Long day but amazing!

Comments: It is possible to do this route in three pitches with a 60M rope. From the ground, continue up then right to the large tree (shared with Osiris) almost 200 feet. Second pitch, work up and right about 165 feet to a sloping ledge. Then top out by working straight up through the upper headwall just under 200 feet. Makes for a long and efficient route.

Comments: What is the poison ivy beta on the south rim climbs? I've heard it's not as bad as the north rim, but I find it hard to believe.
