Comments: For those seeking some newer routes with more friendly bolting there are about ten sectors to the right or north that have great routes. They are not covered by the Rockfax book, but are in the Ceuse only book. The newer routes are also less polished.

Comments: I've always rapped the route. It is possible to walk off toward Recovery Wall if you do the final two sideways easy pitches and then rap off to the north. BTW this particular crag is closed for raptor nesting in the spring.

Comments: Couldn't figure out a way to get past the 3rd bolt without going over into the gully with my left foot. It's a long ways up to the next holds, and the horizontal is at shoulder height, kind of a high step for 12-. What was I missing?

FWIW - the anchor hardware is gone except for the bolts and hangers. It may be possible to utilize the anchors on the route to the right, but that would be difficult.

Comments: Did a lot of cleaning on the crux of this one yesterday, didn't show much evidence of previous traffic, and maybe it's only been done once. The remnants of the bush are gone as well as a lot of the lichen on the footholds and in the gear placements. Great stone!

Comments: Really great stone up there, wish there was more of it around the vicinity, way better than the Monastery.

Comments: This wall was still very much a work in progress when I recorded info for the currently most up-to-date print guidebook. There is a second pitch above Absent Minded Professor and two routes to the left now, one with a fun move above a low roof. I took a small wire brush to a few of the left side routes on Wednesday hopefully making them even better than they already were. The stone on the left side of the wall is pretty good by CCC standards, and the routes are a lot of fun. Thanks for all the h... more >>

Comments: The cracks on the upper part of the pitch need some serious cleaning to unearth protection spots and holds. I cleaned them some today in the rain/snain, but a real cleaning would make this pitch more worthwhile. The stone is very good though.

Comments: I really liked going up the corner on P3, the upper part didn't seem any harder than the terrain below, and the pro was good.

Comments: It is important to note that the top anchors for his route are Metolius Rap Anchors, perfectly suitable for rappelling or lowering. They look like overgrown regular bolt hangers and have a radius similar to a carabiner. I recently removed two taped biners from the anchor that would utterly snarl a rope.

Comments: I have found the upper pitch well worth doing, not quite as good as P1, but the small bit of South Platte Kitty litter is easily passed with big positive holds.

Comments: If you do this on gear, just don't fall on the upper half of the route. Also, the now possible gear placements on the crux were full of rocks until I cleaned them out, but they are nice finger locks.

Comments: Cold shuts replaced with ClimbTech hangers 2016. It is possible to climb the finish on the face vs. using the crack to the right, either way the rock is really good, just mossy in the crack.

Comments: The hardware was upgraded a few years ago, except for one recalcitrant bolt. Enjoy!
