Location: CO : Boulder : Eldorado Canyon SP : Redgarden Wall : Redgarden - Roof Routes : Hands In The Clouds (5.12a A0)
By: Lisa Montgomery When: Sep 28, 2016

Comments: With the consent of the first ascensionist, an additional 5th bolt was added to Hands in the Clouds. The new bolt is located above the crux and protects the follower from potentially taking a large pendulum. Thanks, ACE, for supplying the hardware.

See ACE application archive for details: ACE application for additional bolt

Comments: Save a #0.5 Camalot to place overhead at the crux. It's initially hard to see, because it's so high and around the corner, but it's bomber. Great pitch.


Location: CO : Alpine Rock : Mt. Evans : Lincoln Lake Slabs : Jabba (5.11-)
By: Lisa Montgomery When: Aug 3, 2016

Comments: Excellent! Jabba is one of the best granite crack climbs I've done on the Front Range. Great rock, long, interesting, and continuous - it's full value.

Gear recommendation: 2 x green Alien - #2, opt. #3, medium-large nuts, opt. extra red Alien and #0.5 Camalot.

Comments: Gear recommendation - singles from blue Alien to #2 Camalot, single set nuts. The #2 can be placed in the horizontal before gaining the upper headwall. Definitely a worthy route.

Comments: I thoroughly enjoyed this route - STEEP friction at some of its finest. Next time, I'd climb Funky Bolt and hang the 4th bolt with a longer draw to take some sting out of making that reachy clip.

Comments: I placed a medium nut before the last bolt. You could also place a medium/large nut after the last bolt. Gear really isn't necessary, but it's nice if you're pumped. Excellent rock climb.

Comments: Route update: new righthand anchor bolt and new chain on P2 of Pony Express. We made it so that you can equalize your rope in two directions: either rap straight down to the ground from the lowest chain links (80m rope required?) or rap the Pony Express corner to the P1 anchor by using the quicklinks on the right chain.

Comments: This is a worthwhile route for the obscure tour. I'd recommend bringing plenty of RPs and small nuts. I placed a #4 Camalot at the nest of slings in the bottom of the OW before starting the traverse. A baggy 0.5 or tight 0.75 fits okay at the crux. I was able to get a good green Alien right after that.

Comments: Bring all your .5s for this radical rock climb. It was awesome!

Recommend: 1 x grey Alien, 4-5 x red Aliens/orange Metolius, 5-7 x .5s, 1 x .75, 1 x #1

Comments: This is a fun and worthwhile route, but it is not sustained. The crux is probably pulling onto the face. Save a #2 and 0.5 for the horizontal about 2/3 of the way up.

Comments: I'd recommend bringing some small cams and a single set of nuts for the traverse. I placed green C3 to grey Alien and a medium nut. I didn't have a purple C3, but one may have gone in.

Comments: I thought this was a totally cool route with great position on the arete and cryptic moves. Josh mentions it in the description, but I'll reiterate that you take the juggy hand traverse left from Pony Express (do not continue up the right-facing corner). Place a finger-sized piece at the end of the traverse as you start to move up toward the first bolt. There's a sizable runout between 1st and 2nd bolts, but it's easy climbing. I found the crux to be clipping the 3rd bolt, so having the draws pr... more >>
