Comments: Climbed this route 7/24/17!
Super fun day in the mountains. Climbing alpine granite in a day with enough time to drink beer at home can't be beat. Route finding here is super easy with the beta provided and 4 of the 5 pitches (we linked some?) are very high quality. The splitter corner alone made it worth it. There is a fair bit of loose rock, but we did our best to clean up belay ledges and some of the bigger flakes as no one else was in the cirque that day. Enjoy!

Comments: I think that is exactly what happened! The original grades on those plaques are right in my opinion.

Comments: This thing is a super fun trip. It just keeps going and going and going..... found myself wondering what I was doing up so high haha. ANYWAYS! Heres the best way to do it!- Prepare for a lot of better than average CHOSSAINEERING! Use long draws or alpine draws for the first few clips, easy jug haul, then back clean a couple of funky roofs towards the top. This made rope drag almost non existent to my surprise. Lowering off with a 70M works PERFECTLY (knot it)! Don't let the rope fly away in the ... more >>

Comments: I was pretty excited to come home and try this rig. Super fun climbing on good edges and pockets leads to a steep, beautiful headwall. No send yet, but I'm stoked this line got put up!

Comments: Epic route, by far one of my favorite buttresses at Ten Sleep after 30+ days climbing there. Some of the holds definitely are a little sandy but the quality of the climbing is superb. More like 14 bolts. The crux is an awesome series of smaller holds with good movement. Go do Where the Sidewalk Ends, Sheep Reaction, and If Dreams Were Thunder for an Epic day!

Comments: Levitation 29 is the best long route I have ever done!
-We did the short slab approach heading up them right after the wash split. Wasn't too bad on the way up but we went down some easier slabs near the massive trees.
-Pitch 5 is burly, the crimps after the crux are sustained!
-Dont underestimate Pitch 7, the climbing is super different than the rest of the route.
-Pitch 2 is great, super fun moves!
-Go do it!!

Comments: An awesome route, one of the best I did on my trip to Red Rocks. The roof pull above the massive ledge above pitch three is stellar and the entire climb is awesome. Lots of mini jugs and flakes. There are looser flakes that will pull eventually but it adds some fun adventures elements to the climb. Park at the end of the dirt road in front of Rainbow Mountain for sure, less hiking through washes and stuff. As far as gear goes, bring like 4 nuts to protect a couple minor run outs on easier terrai... more >>

Comments: Amazing route one of the most asthetic and rowdy 5.6's anywhere. I left a .75 up there, if anyone found it, a 6-pack will be at your doorstep if its returned!! Thanks

Comments: The top two pitches are pretty awesome! Lots of sloping holds on good rock. If you dont mind the choss at the bottom go send it!

Comments: What is the route to the left of E.O. lieback on the same face as Gunga Din but on the right toward the arete? Pretty hard crimps with about 6 bolts. Must be new, because it's not online.
