The crux was getting to the first bolt. The climbing was fun.


The route is located the right of Roof By-Pass. There is a small aspen tree at the start.


6 bolts to a two bolt anchor the two bolts at the top. I left two biners at the top. It needs two more snap links so the rope runs through the top anchors correctly.

Would love to find out who put the route up and what the real rating is. Felt 9 ish.

The route named "Talk to Your Toes" was bolted in August, 2010 by Paul Obanhein who also bolted a great line up the face of the arete on the left side of the dome, Conarette. The first ascent party was Paul, Clay Sanford, and Janice Sakata. They initially thought rating was about mid-10.

Some runouts between bolts - felt more like 10a/b based on other ratings at 11mile. For leaders comfortable at the grade. Was looking to the line directly to the right and envious of the four bolts to the anchor in the same distance that I had one on delicate crimps and edges on not as vertical terrain....

The route shown in the photo is not Talk to Your Toes. Ben's book and MP are incorrect (I know because I was there when Talk to Your Toes was bolted). The route in this photo with some runouts is titled Right of Blossoming Bosoms on MP and as "New Sport" in Ben's book. The names and descriptions of these two routes are simply reversed.

The first bolt can be easily clipped from the left.
