Comments: 4 Stars for sure. Great moderate line!!! I loved this area before access got so complicated a decade ago. It sounds like the access has improved a bit. Hopefully we can maintain access as the area fills in with roads and neighborhoods.

Comments: Someone has added 6 additional bolts on this recently. It now has 17 bolts. It would have been preferred if they would have at least used decent quality gear.

Comments: I loved it. I sold it after 2 years for about 75% of what I paid for it because I was moving and did not have room for it in the new place. It will be boring...it is hard to set really good/fun moves on it. My goal was building fitness, and I used it to be able to train while working 60 hours a week with little time to hit the gym. Without the dreadwall, I would probably have fallen out of shape, but, instead, I got into the best climbing shape ever.

It helped me send my first 5.13 despite... more >>

Comments: What color was the glue? Anyone know how long ago it was placed or what type/brand of glue? Was it "wet" on the pulled bolt? There was a recent glue failure at Red Rock too. Good catch keeping him/her off the ground!!!

I guess the only important question is if there are other glueins on this route placed at the same time? There is a small chance it's bad glue, a small chance it had not met its cure timeframe, and a much larger chance it was not cured due to not being mixed w... more >>

Comments: Agree; top is much harder due to hold breakage. Went from fun 5.8 to a cruxy 9+/10a. Such is red choss...things evolve.

Comments: I think most of those bolts are actually totally good. A few of the spinners just need a tap and tighten. IMHO. However, if there is a plan to rebolt it, I think glue-ins are by far a better long term choice for this wall. The matrix is really soft on much of this wall.

Comments: No bolts on top; A #3 and a #4 Camelot can be an anchor for lowering (you could probably use some smaller cams up there too). Very easy walk-off.

Comments: Two stars as of today, but this could clean up into another 4 star classic over time. It's still quite dirty as of today. I broke 2 holds and kicked off a dozen (per my belayer) small pebbles...so it's cleaner now. The DK guide is pretty spot on...there is a definitive crux midway consisting of slopers. It is between bolt 6 and 7. Bolt 6 is hard to see when you are on route. Do this route and help clean it into a 4 star classic.

Comments: The fact that the description above says there is no distinct crux on this route is odd. The moves shortly after the knee bar on the shelf (AKA the crux) are at least V5 and are wayyyy harder than any other section on this route. The other hardish moves are the start, the gravely undercling and the moves by the chain draw...but at best...those sections are V3 (maybe only V2?).

Based upon my experience and those who I have discussed this route with...there is definitely a distinct crux on th... more >>

Comments: Nice little route; you are a true craftsman with the glue-in bolts; others could learn from you. Very nice work.

And a sincere thanks for all the routes you and your wife have established!!!

Comments: Great new route! The start is super hard. The rest is very reasonable for the grade. Lots of variety. Getting into the corner is quite cool.

It's nice to climb such a good route in Rifle that still has some texture! Thanks for the effort here to the FA crew!

Comments: The bolt discussed above has been replaced with a stainless bolt provided by the ASCA. Please remember to donate to the ASCA.

The old bolt came out very easily and the old hole was reused/ redrilled for the new bolt.

Comments: There are quite a few spinners at the pipeline. Most are clearly still bomber and the spin could be fixed with a slight hammer tap and a light tightening (but are not dangerous as is). However, I think the bolt before the crux on this route could actually need replacing. It's in some softer matrix, sticks out about 1/4-1/2 inch and the hole is slightly eroded near the edge. The bolt is a 2.25 inch by 3/8" powers.
