Comments: In regard to the above discussion on grading in Clear Creek, and especially TDD, I would have to agree with the concept of using Gold Standard routes to compare moves. I have tried many of the Clear Creek 12d's and 13a's, as well as having completed a number of the 12c's in the canyon. My opinion of the grade is based on these routes, and I would reference Twitch in particular. Twitch is very similar to TDD, although the crux moves are on slightly smaller holds.

Comments: The third bolt, while unfortunate to hang from, is well placed to be able to clip it on lead, and actually have it protect the first crux move. I would recommend not hanging from it too much (to save your rope) and being careful with your foot placement once you climb through this crux as you can easily step on the rope.

Comments: Interesting route history, Richard. Great job an a fantastic line. I think this route is one of the best for the grade, with classic moves and awesome position.

Comments: It is good to hear some of the history behind the ratings for this route.

Comments: The old-school rating for this route is 10c, however the newer guide books give it 11a, so it is up in the air. The serious rating is because of the loose rock on the first two pitches. Otherwise the gear is bomber.

Comments: I felt that the guidebooks rating of 12c is quite generous. It was more like 5.12a.

Comments: This route ascends the left side of the overhang, if you are facing the wall, not the right side as I wrote earlier.
