Comments: Definitely not a bomb. Short but sweet. I've heard people refer to the routes on this block as boulder problems. Pitching off of the top of any of these routes would be a serious fall.

Comments: This route looks more intimidating than it really is. The climbing is worth the effort.

Comments: This was my first Shelf Road route. Not a bad route, but would be better if it weren't so close to the corner.

Comments: It looks similar to The Monument, in Eldorado Canyon, except that it is closer to the ground and not underclings.

Comments: My favorite route in the East. Why is this route getting a C rating? It is a free climb.

Comments: A waste of good hardware. This is one of the most contrived routes in the park, and the bolts spoil the natural corner right next to it.

It felt like 5.8 without using the corner. I really wish people would think more carefully before bolting right next to natural lines. Not every square inch of rock needs a bolt.

Comments: This isn't a bad route, except that the last bolt is very poorly placed. I got the impression that the bolter was trying to force the route onto the face.

Comments: My girlfriend and I decided to try this place out today. We did about a half dozen of the moderates, up to mid 5.10, and thought this was the best route of all of them. The route follows an obvious, uncontrived path, and it is bolted intelligently. The moves are also very fun.

Comments: I agree that a 5.11 climber would have his or her hands full on this route, although 12c is way off. I onsighted this route pretty easily, in 1995, It took me three tries to stick the crux of Downpressor Man. There was no stopper move on the route - just sustained and relatively thin climbing most of the way.

Ken, did Jeff say that to you? Just curious because he was my regular partner back then, and I was with him when he did it. We both onsighted it and, as I recall, agreed that was pretty s... more >>

Comments: Hi Steve,

I am really sorry to hear about your health complications, although if anyone has the mental fortitude to give this thing a run for the money, it's you. I know that we have had our climbing ethics differences in the past, but I have always respected your desire to stay true to your beliefs.

Just remember that you have many friends in the Boulder climbing community, which is much better enduring this alone. Fight like hell, and we'll be rooting for you.

Cheers,

Ken
