Comments: This bolt seemed to be installed correctly. The sleeve was holding the hanger on. There was very little corrosion. I'm not surprised it held a fall. I also wouldn't have been surprised if it didn't. It was very easy to remove.

Comments: This isn't the Left Side, more like the middle. Climb the actual left side. Way better....

Comments: This now has 7 bolts and an anchor. If you are climbing at this wall, you will probably be comfortable with just quickdraws; however, there are a couple of gear placements between bolts that some may want to utilize.... A #2 or #3 Camalot between bolts 2 and 3 and a #4 before bolt 7.

Thanks to OSMP for allowing new fixed hardware in the Flatirons, and thanks to Matt for allowing us mortals a chance to enjoy this fun line.

Comments: Yes, there are 9 bolts. On October 31st, 2015 we went up with intention to lower bolt #5 after Dan's comment. Lowering bolt #5 would have made an excessive runout after #5, so we just left it in and added one. Originally we thought that incut clipping hold might fall off, so we didn't want people pulling up rope to clip in case the hold blew, and without that hold, you wouldnt want to stop to clip there. The hold is solid though. You coul... more >>

Comments: With a 70m rope, you can make it to the big tree in one pitch. A tiny cam out left can hold your rope away from the PI. From the tree, we made it all the way to the Dangling Fury anchor.

Thanks to OSMP, the Flatirons Climbing Council, and the ASCA for supplying the hardware. The slung loose blocks have been replaced with a proper rap anchor.

Comments: This section is not actually steep, and you don't need to climb like this, but you would need at least a #5 if you want protection here.

Comments: On September 17th, there was a volunteer bolt replacement event. Every bolt in Skunk Canyon was replaced (except for The Inferno).

Comments: "Dirt Trek" is the name I heard, unless they change their mind.... FA: Mike C. and Ken Trout.

They both led this on gear before hand drilling on lead. I was passing by and loaned them a drill to finish up.... First 2 bolts are 1/2" Powers, the rest are 3/8" X 3.5" KB3s, all stainless.

I can't believe how much drama has surrounded this climb!?! This is not the back room at Earth Treks. If you don&@POU... more >>

Comments: I have the biners you left on the rap bolts from the ledge, if you want them back. Those are rap hangers you can thread the rope directly through BTW.

Comments: Not sure what that's about. Was the X on loose looking rock? Maybe it's marking buried treasure?

Comments: Dan,
As of now there is no application for bolts, but there is talk. Of course it could only happen with Matt's blessing.

Comments: As of today we can remove the X. This thing is now fully bolted.
8 bolts and a two bolt anchor

Huge thanks to the Flatiron Climbing Counsil and OSMP for allowing new bolts in the Flatirons and a special thanks to Matt for a great line and his blessing for the upgrade. It's already seeing traffic.

Comments: Approaching from Skunk Canyon is very easy after the flood. It was easy to avoid the little poison ivy that we saw.
First pitch is probably 5.4 and well-protected. Continue to the first good ledge above the poison ivy patch.
2nd pitch: to the stance on ridge.
3rd to the notch where the final pitch begins. 70m.
4th to top.
There was no fixed gear except for a sling at the thread near the top crux.
