Comments: Bob, is this the hanging corner just above Sidewall, right before its crux or does Quiet Desperation have an independent start to the right of Sidewall? I guess what I'm trying to ask is do you have to climb the first 20 ft or so of Sidewall to gain Quiet?

Thanks!

Comments: I guess I can't comment on the original start since I haven't tried it. I've always used the newer direct start. I thought I finally was going to send this thing last Sunday but was denied again at the top. I was pulling that awkward exit move when I fell, ripping the gear just below my feet. When I finally hit the end of the rope I was back down at the bolt near the start!

Comments: Holy crap! I think I did that crossing back in December in my Subaru. The water was really low then.

Comments: What an incredible route! Slab climbing at it's best. You'll have to suck it up on some sections with HUGE runouts hoping that crystal you're standing on doesn't break. The STEEP slab above the crux is some of the most continuous climbing you'll ever do that just goes on forever. The final 300ft or so is a great simul-climb. Don't expect to find many bolts. True adventurous South Platte climbing.

Comments: The drive in on the east side via Metberry Gulch is in pretty good shape now. A standard 4x4 will do fine (except Subarus, sorry). We actually saw a couple of stock trucks all the way down at the river. We drove in as far as we could with a small 2WD truck and went the rest of the way on a motorcycle (see picture in photo section for a good laugh).

Comments: Freakin' amazing route! The 2nd pitch went down this morning on my 3rd attempt. Hank, I agree with you about the 10+ sections. It's one of those climbs where the cruxes come low, but you can't celebrate yet because you may get smacked in the face near the end.

The second pitch is one of the most unique climbs in Eldo. Last week after getting thru the crux corner I was shut down when I pulled around the corner slapping the tiny edges with pumped forearms(ahhhh). If you climb 12- in Eldo, ge... more >>

Comments: This route seemed a bit stiff for a 12a. Very aesthetic climbing though on great rock.

Comments: Excellent for sure! The start is quite tricky but soon eases up. Get ready for some strenous laybacking with poor feet up top. Protects really well.

Comments: Super fun route that gets steeper the higher you climb. Great gear throughout. This is not your typical Eldo route and is probably a good first 12 for everyone.

Comments: Yeah, I like this route more then Battle of the Bulge. The start is really fun going thru the small roofs. Once thru the roofs it's tight hands all the way with one flared section about half way up. Take lots of #1 camalots.

Comments: Very continuous at the grade with few good rests. Doesn't really let up until you clip the chains. Quite a bit harder than its neighbor Unusual Weather. Quality climb.

Comments: High quality route on nice wall. Continuous movement up an ever steepening wall with a couple rests. One of the best routes at the bank. Would be a good warm-up for Heavy Weather.

Comments: Really powerful climbing for most of the route. Quite a bit harder than JC next door. Small gear at the top not a bad idea, I didn't have any. Must have been one heck of a ride back in the day with only 2 bolts! yikes!

Comments: One of the better routes in BC. Ridiculously hard onsight for the grade. Once you figure it out though it flows really well.

Comments: I agree with Greg on this one. T2 is a bit harder. No stopper moves, just a jug haul with one hard move near the top. Fun climb though with cool moves and great gear.

Comments: Really sweet climb. Nice crisp edging on a beautiful wall. Unfortunately I had just led the crux pitch of the Wisdom, so I was a little wasted when I arrived at the crux. Initiating the crux roof/bulge is not really obvious. It was also really hot and sunny that day and I kept greasing off. I plan to go back when it's cooler and try it again. I think it's bolted just about right too. Keeps you on your toes. Solid 3 stars! Nice one guys...

Comments: Chris, I left a comment about Yellow Fellow, go check it out.

Wishbone is fine the way it is.... Yes, the fall would be big, but clean.
