Comments: Glad you appreciate the new hardware. All of the old fixed hardware was replaced with glue-ins through a permit from the National Monument. Hardware was provided by the ASCA, support them whenever you can.

Comments: Some clarification or help in finding the trail for routes in the Voodoo Child/Super Natural/Crooked Arrow Spire: When you first turn off 128, there's a good road straight ahead with a big square shaped parking lot. This is for the equestrian trails. The climbing approach takes the immediate left after leaving 128 and there is a sign there indication climber access (although with no arrow). There is some initial roughness getting into the wash but it's mos... more >>

Comments: This area should probably be placed under the River Road area so it is with other sub-areas of that bigger area.

Comments: Pictured Rocks outside Monticello would have some of the best routes with easiest access and ability to figure out where the climbs are.

Comments: Stone Free and Ice Palace are on state-owned Division of Wildlife land that is part of the trout hatchery and hence are off limits to all climbing, including mixed and ice climbing. These climbs are not part of city-owned land that makes up Rifle Mountain Park. In the last few years, the Division of Wildlife has put up more and more signs that state "No Climbing", and DOW employees will chase off climbers who climb there. It should be encouraged to honor this closur... more >>

Comments: The routes listed here are not in order but to put them in order as you drive through the canyon, they would be:

Stone Free
Ice Palace
Soul On Ice
Lower Ice Cave (not on MP)
Tree Slab
Final Curtain

Location: California : Yosemite National Park : Yosemite Valley : El Capitan : The Nose (5.9 C2) : Photo

Comments: Not a Photoshop job. I've heard Tom tell the story of how he got that. How he had always waited for the right day when the moon was in the right position and then the guys he photographed had a mini epic or something so they ended up bivying and being in the right spot for the photo early in the morning. Basically, things just worked out right for him to get the moon and the climbers just right.

Comments: I forgot about the crux right off the ground. I'll update the description.


Location: California : Yosemite National Park : Tuolumne Meadows
By: Michael Schneiter When: Jul 21, 2016

Comments: Regarding the above. The campgrounds DO NOT open when Hwy 120 opens and the higher elevation campgrounds like Tuolumne Meadows will open much later typically. It varies year by year depending on snowpack and the spring melt. The Forest Service campgrounds located east of the entrance (toward Lee Vining) will open earlier so you can always stay down lower if climbing in Tuolumne early season.

Comments: I know the rock at the top looks dubious, but it wouldn't come off with hammer and crowbar. I'll probably reinforce some of it with glue to help ease any fears.

Comments: I hear ya about the X-marked holds. The big block wouldn't move with a 3 foot bar, but I know it looks questionable. A hold up high worked loose last summer and now has an X on it, although it's kind of "puzzle pieced" in there. I'll go over this route again with the bar and maybe some glue, probably in the next week.

Comments: If you're interested in mileage to help find the pullout, I measured it at 6.4 miles from US Highway 50 to the pullout. If you're coming from the south, it's 2.6 miles from Cactus Park.

Comments: There's a new route to the right of this, climbing just left of a small corner feature. It starts about 30-40 feet right of Arc Angel, on the right side of the tree.


Location: Colorado : Rifle : Rifle Mountain Park : The Sno-Cone Cave : Lever Action (not Downdraft... (5.11d)
By: Michael Schneiter When: Mar 28, 2016

view comment >>
Comments: As I recall, in an old guidebook it listed the route below the roof and to the first anchor as Downdraft and the extension through the roof, via the crack, as Lever Action. Always seems a bit confusing to me to have different route names for every extension to a route.

Comments: Instead of dropping down where the red line is at the bottom of the photo, we stayed on the ridgeline proper and it was fine and really fun. Of course, on a ridge like this there are a lot of options but this was one area where I thought it was worthwhile in terms of reward and effort to stay on the ridge proper.

Comments: There is another descent ramp that parallels this to the skiers left (east) that had a lot of cairns leading to it and going down it. We took that lefthand variation and it was pretty good. I think there are multiple ways to go but I am under the impression that perhaps the lefthand version we took is preferred over this chimney-like option.

Comments: Anchor updated with hardware courtesy of the ASCA. The lead protection bolts on this are in sorry shape and in need of replacement, particularly the first three. All of those first three have bent and/or spinning hangers.

Location: Colorado : Carbondale Area : The Narrows : The Schoolyard : Funky Monkey (5.8)

Comments: This is now 7 bolts total. I added two bolts to the top of this yesterday, making the final moves on to the ledge less runout and negating the need to bring a single cam for the last part. Before anyone complains about the bolt placement, please consider that the rock is super hollow in the upper portion of the climb and is largely inappropriate for bolts.

Comments: I added three bolts to this yesterday, so it is now a fully bolted sport climb with five bolts total. The route is clean and climbs well.

Comments: Sweet, that's great to hear after spending so much time and putting in so much elbow grease establishing climbs, building up base areas, and taking care of the trails. Enjoy!
