Comments: This is a stellar climb and definitely worth getting on.... We followed it up with Spectreman, and the grade felt fine in comparison.

Location: Colorado : Estes Park Valley : Lumpy Ridge : Sundance Buttress : Firebird (5.9 C2)

Comments: Interesting aid route, the description above supplemented with the topos in the Gillett book is a good guide. It goes cleanly (though stout) with pitch two and three (wild) as the two cruxes. Be sure to back up some of the old fixed gear on P3, we ripped a piton. Freeing the roof on P3 would be pretty difficult.

Location: Colorado : Fort Collins : Poudre Canyon : Crystal Wall : North Face : Bananarête (5.9+)

Comments: A must do. Heads up: pack a helmet for the belayer (caught 3 fist-sized rocks last time) and a brush for the lichen and dirt. Will be one of the better routes out there at the grade.
