Comments: I think this is a pretty decent warm-up for other routes in the area. The crux is a bit of a one-move-wonder that's always involved falling into a jug for me. Good stone.

Comments: How do you get to this problem from say Prince Charles? I searched all over the place the last time I was there and couldn't find Thievery.

Comments: There are now chains at the top of Another Pipeline Bonecrusher. We also replaced the third bolt as the old one was sticking out from the wall. Thanks to Chris Archer and ACE for supplying the hardware!

With the addition of these anchors, and the ability to project the route, I think it's definitely worthy of 3 stars as it's a splitter overhanging crack in Eldo.

According to Jo Huggins, the route's name comes from a line from the awesomely 70's surf movie Big Wednesday... "and here's Jerry Lop... more >>

Comments: Fantastic route, one of the best single pitches I've been on at Red Rocks. Spring Break, as well as Tarantula and Gotham City, would be very hard to send first go without rehearsing the moves on TR. Spectacular piece of stone.

Comments: There's an awesome V7 variation that starts with your right hand on the crimp and your left hand and foot on the lip. Super core intensive but an amazing problem.

Comments: This is one of the biggest events of the year for the Front Range climbing community and I can't wait to see everyone there. Also, is there a place where we can put in input about the day's projects? It would be great if we could do some work to create an actual trail up to the Kloof Alcove.

Comments: The wall is located above the A Boulders and looks to have a lot of new route potential for those intereested in some alpine cragging.

Comments: I believe that Asa Firestone and Matt Othmer did the second ascent of this route last summer. They were bummed to see that an old RURP was fixed in the crux as they were up there to claim the first ascent. Absolutely beautiful looking line, though the top seeps quite a bit.

Comments: Amazing route. Thunderdome is pretty moderate before and after the crux, but the crux moves felt like solid 12a. My beta seemed different from everyone else's here so the best advice I have is just to get out there and figure it out for yourself. You'll likely have it to your lonesome even on sunny summer weekends. Isn't it great bringing trad gear to a sport crag.

Comments: It's beyond me why anyone would want to change a name as sweet as Lycra Clad Donkeys. Lycra Clad Monkeys might however be a suitable compromise. I just like the image.
