Comments: STELLAR!! This route is amazing!! The location, the climbing, the history, and the beauty of the rock make this climb one of Boulder's best single pitch routes. I placed a full range of gear, mid range stoppers, small to medium aliens, and lots of hand size pieces. There are several cruxes, hard to say which one is the actual crux as I was pretty fatigued by the final roof. I placed an anchor immediately after the last roof so that I could belay (and watch!) the second. Save a 1 - 1.25 inch cam,... more >>

Comments: This route is now one of my all time favorites. My partner and I did it in two pitches - easily - with out rope drag. And rappeled twice using a 70 meter rope. The second pitch is definitely the mental crux, requiring gear placements on sustained 5.10 climbing.

Comments: I found this to be a very satisfying route. Committing, yet do-able with good edges for your feet. I was able to protect the crux with a blue alien and small stoppers. I had RP's with me, but didn't use a single one!

Comments: Ouch! Some how some way - I managed to follow my partner up this glorious off width! Folks with big feet will have an easier time for there is a decent toe heel jam in the back, otherwise if you have smaller feet, like me, lots of palming, and foot knee jams are the only way to move up. Hard right away, two number 5 Camalots are nice to have. Second pitch has some spice as well, but nothing like the first pitch. I heard that this is a great warm up for Crack of Fear.

Comments: I loved this route! We did the first pitch of Gonzo then finished on Deviant. I think this route is very hard (but safe) for the grade - I have done many of the "classic" 5.9's in Eldo and found this to be more continuous and sustained than most routes at the grade. It is short, but feels like a lot of climbing for it's length, one of the most interesting 30 feet of climbing I have done in a while! Enjoy!

  • *WOW** What an amazing route!! This is a must do for anyone who loves to crack climb. The Breashears finger crack is fantastic! And the rest is even better!! Recommended gear:pitch 1: double green (.5) and yellow (.75) Aliens for the beginningpitch 2: bring extra #2 friends (#1 Camalot) pitch 3: #3 Camalot is useful for the roof, and save a #4 friend (#3 or #3.5 Camalot) for the toppitch 4: Long slings are useful (if you or your partner plan on aiding)
