Comments: Does anyone know whats going on with raptor closures in Boulder Canyon this year? There are new yellow signs saying many crags like Blob, Happy Hour, Security etc are closed. Today there were lots of cars parked in normal parking, and a ranger truck. Just curious if anyone knows the details of the closures.......

Comments: Hmmm, I've been leading ice for almost a decade and I have yet to use one. Tracy, It's really amazing that you've managed thus far, how have you done it...

Comments: Well landowners are getting pissed off!I. E. All the no tresspassing signs. Access is a big issue. Be respectful of landowner`s rights. When [facing] the rock from road the right [gully] is the [approach]. You should not be tresspassing.

Comments: Guy- you are mistaken. Shadow and Skunk Canyon are not in the proposed HCA areas. The affected areas include Eldorado Mountain and the west side of Boulder/Green Mountains.

See the map of the management zones (the HCAs colored green are the areas closed to off-trail use) at:

Comments: I suspect the lines being put in are being put in across the road from Big Elk's main bouldering areas .. ie: straight uphill behind the Double Trouble Boulder, which harbors Get Over It. I can testify that it is not a fun hike, although there are cairns that I helped put down. ~ 3/4 mile hike that feels like 2 because of all the downed trees and crappy game trails that dead end into gullies and branch gauntlets. It's only a 700 foot elevation gain on the hike, but it feels worse because there's... more >>

Comments: FWIW, there are State Trust Lands in almost every county in Colorado, except maybe Denver County. I don't have my Delorme Map with me at work, but I'm pretty sure that's the case. There are 3 million acres of State Trust Lands in Colorado, but ONLY 480,000 of those acres are open for public use and NONE of them are in Jefferson, Douglas, Elbert, Arapahoe, Adams, Denver, Boomfield or Boulder Counties. The brochure pdf listed above only lists the OPEN lands.

On a related note, climbing is NOT a r... more >>

Comments: Here we go again ...

Good style Stefan. If you feel like the bolts are unnecessary, place gear and ignore them like Stefan did, and most importantly don't let it ruin your day or lose sleep over it.

There are just as many people who will be very happy to put those bolts to use, even if you don't ... AND I'M NOT ONE OF THEM.

Comments: Maybe I climbed it too soon after it was drilled, but there was an empty bolt hole where the last bolt was supposed to go when I did it. I clove hitched a QD into the fixed rope that was still hanging there and finished without incident. Some guys at the base said it was finished, despite the presence of the fixed rope. Has this bolt now been placed, or was it considered unnecessary? They did tell me it was a long route though, so I trailed another rope. I guess I'll just start taking the d... more >>

Comments: Micah, who is lying to whom? The corporate driven war in Iraq is a one of the worst told lies in United States history. I wish I could individually apologize to every soldier in Iraq for voting for W. - it won't happen again.

Comments: Dude, you don't suck; you're just not ready for it. I think the key is to keep pushing yourself on gear routes close to the grade, and you'll send it onsight. It might take a year or two to get there, but if you are working for it, it'll come eventually. Think King's X, Le Toit, [Disappearing] Act, Center Route, Outer Space and Country Club Crack but don't get discouraged if you get schooled on classics like NW Corner, Vertigo or Athletes Feet as they are pretty desperate.

Sure, you ... more >>

Comments: Interesting thoughts, Richard. I'm still a little unclear as to how Saturnalia and No Lo fit in wth Steve's constant and unrelenting position. It seems like his unrelenting position, relents when there's a route he wants to do. But he certainly appears to revel in telling the rest of the climbing community how they should act. Glass houses are still as fragile as ever.

Comments: This one truly sounds like a *** must-do classic to me Tony. Maybe you should stick to splitting grades and complaining about fixed gear placements.

Comments: Tim, I know what you might be thinking..."Man, all these people are coming down on me just for posting this route. Ok, maybe I didn't do the whole thing, but I said that in the description. But at least the route is in the database now. Better than nothing."

I have to agree with some of the other posters. If you haven't done, or even tried the route, then try and refrain from entering that route into the database. I could enter hundreds of routes that I have walked by or glanced at while r... more >>

Comments: Tim- despite your assertions to the contrary, it seems that you are way oversensitive. You post a route that you have not climbed, and then throw a fit when people call you on it. I guess that kind of stuff flies over at rc.com, which by the way, this is not.

Anyone who has done this route care to post a real route description?

Comments: The FA of this was done by Clay Wadman and Mark Gay and they rated it 10- and placed only two or three bolts. Mark Rolofson decided it needed more.

Comments: Andy, lighten up a little on Jeb. Maybe he was a little presumptous in thinking this was a new route but that's a common occurrence in bouldering. It looks a fun problem, albeit a bit contrived. If others have climbed it, we'd love to know the history. If you can remember the name to the problem, it would be a good addition to this site.
