Comments: I always put an offset Alien right there (I think a red-yellow), and it seems as good or better than the tricam.

Comments: Correction to the above post... Northwest Corner is the LEFT-most (east) of the two cracks, to the east of Right Crack.

Comments: Greg, every time I go up there I contemplate that wild route and wonder the same thing, has it been repeated?! I doubt it. I'm curious, did you establish it ground up? Pretty awesome achievement regardless of style.

Comments: Reading the past comments... not so dirty now, most of the friable stuff has cleaned up. Still a bit of lichen here and there, but the quality climbing makes up for it.

Comments: Yo Patrick, feel free to clean said loose rock when on routes like this. Better to pull it out and clean it up than to leave a time bomb for someone else.

Comments: Nice route. A little easier than That's Weak but still probably 10a. A 60-meter definitely works fine.

Comments: In contrast to the comment by J. Albers above, I suspect that most local climbers are NOT at all in agreement with bolting next to established lines, and especially run out classics like Left Side. Actions like this are generally considered tasteless and not OK.

Many routes done in Boulder Canyon are offensive to many climbers, including bolting next to excellent cracks or other good natural protection, bolting too close to established lines, and chipping and gluing holds. Fortunately, place... more >>

Comments: Kudos to Phil Gruber and Lynn Hill who recently sent a linkup of pitches 2 and 3! They were able to belay at the Stone Oven belay and lower back with an 80m rope. If you have a 70m rope, you could belay from same nice ledge, lower to top of 2nd pitch, then rap or lower from there back to the belay.

Comments: Nice job, Mark and Paul! Climbed this yesterday and thought it was excellent, with interesting moves, a bit of pump management, and a wildly exposed lieback finish (crux) at the top. Shorter folks might have trouble reaching the right hold that starts the final lieback. This will likely see plenty of activity due to being the easiest thing up there.

Comments: I fully concur with KCP's comment above. Keep the spice factor alive and relevant in Eldo! But also, let's not shoot ourselves in the foot by trusting shitty old hardware and making it more dangerous than it was for the first ascents. Eldorado is one of the last, pure trad climbing venues in America, and we should make sure it stays that way.

Comments: Rad, thanks for posting, Lisa! I've taken that whip right there and belayed others doing the same and never had a problem. However, I usually use a shoulder length sling on that last piece (#0.75 Camalot) before traversing left... was there a quickdraw on that last piece? Regardless, still hard to believe that the rope could be wanked that hard there.

Comments: This is a wild line that is well worth doing. The PG-13 bit is definitely the committing layback down low (feels like 10b there), but the moves pulling over the final roof at the top of the crack system felt like 10+, though better protected. After that, wild, runout 5.8 and 5.9 climbing on occasionally lichenous and friable rock take you to the summit. Awesome exposure and position on the upper part of the last pitch. This route doesn't seem to get done much but should.

Comments: Excellent, fun climbing on a continuously steep route! Though the two 12- roof cruxes are powerful with less than obvious sequences, the final 11+ big reach at the top is probably the redpoint crux due to accumulated fatigue by that point. Nice job, Chris!

Comments: Wild exposure on the second pitch! It would be a 4-star classic if longer, but it's a pretty brief crux. First pitch is worthy and felt hard for 5.7, maybe more like 5.8 or 9 wide hands and fist? Well worth getting on it if you are in the area.

Comments: Excellent climb, definitely nice, classic movement in a beautiful setting! Very techy and intricate climbing on sharp holds, with a crux move pulling kinda hard on a monodoigt with a sharp edge. Best to have well-conditioned fingertip skin and coolish temps.

Comments: Awesome route! Plenty steep and pumpy with the usual less-than-obvious sequences, and great exposure too! Destined to be a classic if not there already.

Comments: Excellent, clean route, with loads of hard moves but decent stances and rests where you need them. Thought the bottom 3 bolts or so was fairly spicy with chance for decking low and a reachy clip or two but probably nothing harder than 5.11- in there....

Comments: Regarding post above, sounds like someone is working the route and maybe too lazy to remove the draws? There was definitely no approval of this "installment", and hopefully they are gone soon.
