Comments: Short crux between 2nd and 3rd bolts, really fun. 11+

Comments: Probably not "Winslow classic", but still awesome. Looks like there is a potential of ground fall while making the 3rd clip. You have a pretty good rail for hands when clipping, but sort of crappy slopy feet. So just pay attention.

Comments: Crimpy and awesome. 4 out 4 stars by Winslow standarts, which means you have to get on it.

Comments: The blocks at the start are probably OK. But I would not want to fall before reaching the crack. Though climbing is easy. The crack section of the route is fantastic.

Comments: One of the best routes I have ever climbed. Probably 12b

Comments: There was a fixed BD #9 right before the awkward slot on Breashear's. I removed it yesterday. I can give it back to the owner in exchange for a beer or for free if you live in Boulder. I only TR'ed it, and all I can say it feels slightly harder than Gill Crack (on TR). Any other thoughts?

Comments: Someone compared this route to the headwall pitch of J Crack at Lumpy. If that pitch is 11c, than Max Factor is somewhere around 11b. The hard climbing section on this one is a little longer than on J Crack crux, but the moves seem to be easier. At least finger locks are much easier. This is one of my favorite route at Vedauwoo.

Comments: I was wondering, who called this a 12- in the first place? This climb is significantly easier than Maxfactor at Vedauwoo, which is 11b or so. Seems like some of the routes at Indian Creek have pretty soft rating. but what do I know? I got good tips locks at the crux, and this climb is harder for people with big fingers

Comments: So are you supposed to climb directly up the bolt line after a big ledge? It seems pretty obvious to use crack on the left, and climbing is very enjoyable.

Comments: Agree with the previous comment. The crux on this is after the second bolt, and it felt similar in difficulty to the crux on LPA, which is also after the second bolt. The rest of the route is a little less sustained. Both routes are 4 stars.

Comments: It is NOT a squeeze job or whatever. It is a pretty good route, pretty well bolted. Does not need any more or any less bolts. Definitely a good addition to Castle Rock. "One can easily toprope this line".... I am sorry, but this is dumb. One can easily toprope Gill Crack, but many people actually lead it or boulder.

Comments: 11c/d if you know the beta?... I have to admit I led this one after numerous times on TR and figuring out the best way to place gear. So, it is probably a 12a grade for onsight, or something. Placed a 0.75 BD at the beginning, yellow C3 in the middle, and green C3 just before pulling what seems like the crux. I have not yet tried it, but probably bouldering it might be significantly easier than leading and placing gear. But you need two mats and a good spotter for it.

Comments: I think the crux was the beginning of a long 5.10 pitch, right after you climb into a sort of dihedral with finger crack. But probably not harder than 10c. Traverse pitch is not bad, maybe 9+? And the pitch after traverse is definitely easier than the first long 5.10 pitch. Awesome climb. We also climbed it in 9 pitches with a 70m rope.

Comments: I broke a hold on the lower section of this climb that resuled in a new foothold.... It seems like the route got slightly easier after this (better rest before going into the first lower crux).

Comments: For me the last pitch was definitely the crux, balancy and thin. I placed green Alien in some slot to the right of dihedral (I would not want to fall on it though), and then a black Alien a little higher. SPICY. and just don't fall....

Comments: Is the 10c variation to the right of the first pitch done often? We climbed this variation and I had to clean cracks from dirt...but otherwise it is an excellent pitch. The old bolt near the crux at the 10c pitch looks very interesting from historical point of view.

Comments: You don't need a #4 Camalot on this route, unless you want to carry extra weight. the wide section is easy, and, anyway, it is too wide for #4.

Comments: Great route. If you want to get a free gear go do it. I found red Alien with a biner (both in very good shape) on the crux, the cam was not even stuck in the crack :-))
Crux feels easier than some 5.8s in Eldo, IMO. You climb on jugs. And it is VERY well protected.
Also, I am not quite sure whether new rappel description is accurate. We did one 160ft rappel (from bolts on climber's right side), then one 200ft to a grassy ledge. At the very end of that second rappel you will see some slings on yo... more >>

Comments: A wonderful line. Now, after I moved to Boulder, Colorado, I can compare some routes in Crow Hill to Eldorado Canyon, for example.
Intertwine, Cromagnon are better than some of the classics here in Colorado, for sure..

Comments: Led this route yesterday. I suspect it is not 5.9+ at all, better grade is probably 5.9- and really the direct finish is no harder than the rest of the route. It felt MUCH easier than the first pitch of Werk Supp, for example. Anyway, good climb.

Comments: Led this route today just after leading the first pitch of Gonzo. It felt definitely harder than Gonzo P1. Long, very sustained, and it looks like there are several cruxes on the route. IMHO, it is better not to use the anchor at the top at all, it looks quite shitty and hard to reach.
