Location: Colorado : Estes Park Valley : Performance Climbing Park

Comments: It's ironic how this got developed with concern about the landowners above without anyone contacting us. We own the A-frame cabin and property abutting most of the top of the cliff. A bit on the East end abuts the joint condo property. We're climbers and have been playing here quietly since 2003. Oddly, we saw nary another soul climbing the rock here in the interim. I will talk to the Town of Estes Park about whatever their concerns are.

One suggestion after inspecting the bolts for the... more >>

Comments: In the last decade and a half, we used to do this to the roof for little ones and going above the roof at 5.6 for those with normalish reaches (4'8" and above). You could probably do this with a cam to protect the roof move and get to the anchor of Exit Stage Left. Rope drag and abrasion may make this a climb and belay from above option.

Comments: Ryan, this I believe is the trad line, now retrobolted, called Crack Where The Sun Don't Shine, 9-.

There is a photo: mountainproject.com/v/10725254... with a climber on the route to the right that has features that seem quite similar.

Comments: Like with so many things in life, no single policy works all the time. If the climber and belayer can be in sync and work as a team, it can work. So many kids can be just as adept as being safe at many of us adults if taught well from an early age. Go, Zane!

Comments: George, you can move it by hovering over "edit" and click on "edit properties". Then, you can move the satellite map over the crag. Or you can just input the GPS coordinates if you have them.

Comments: I'm fairly confident this was climbed a long time ago. We did it maybe 10 years ago. The looseness of the rock had me treading super carefully so as not to kill my belayer. I think that made our rating of the pitch higher than 8+.

Comments: Kevin, "the crags" refer to subareas and not to routes (although a few subareas include routes by the same name). At these subareas, there are routes. Click on the subareas on the left to see the routes.

Comments: Yes, it changed much after the flake was cleaned off. Before, we climbed around the flake not wanting to knock it off and kill either of us. Plus, it was seeping a bit.

Comments: 2 chains, if you click on the "view full size", you'll see that they indicated the purple means "seasonal closure" areas. Those are just west of Tunnel 1 in the Stumbling Block vicinity and just east of Tunnel 2, in the New River Wall vicinity. Also, FWIW, the Tunnel 2 area recently was opened for all users.
