Comments: Sounds like someone got thumped on this route...I guess we all understand what it's like to get worked on a route we think within our ability and then hate on it. However, I don't think this route deserves a bomb, a 12c/d rating or an X. Nowhere on this route is there the potential for death or grave bodily injury. If the start is a little much for you, then stick clip the damn thing. Don't let this one dude's comment dissuade you from getting on this route, it's one of the better 12a routes in ... more >>

Comments: There are at least three ways to try the crux...the V7 mono, the straight up variation, and the left variation. Seemed like the left variation was the easiest...I'll give it soft 13a with that beta.

Comments: I liked this route well enough, but the anchor placement was a reason to give it 3 instead of 4 stars here. All these routes are about the same grade, great crag!

Comments: What's the very far right problem that moves from good jugs at the start to some smaller holds and then goes back to larger holds before topping out on the slab?

Comments: SteveZ, the broken hold was a nice, sloping jug right when you popped over the lip and started making the moves to the left. I think I held it with my right hand and bumped my left through the crux to the nice edge at full extension. It most certainly makes this route the hardest at Highlander now.

Comments: I also got on this thing the other day and found the climbing to be great! I retract my earlier comments about the start, although I still think it isn't the best route around, I don't mind it as the gateway to the fantastic upper section. Great Rock and fun moves.

Comments: There are rap bolts at the very tippy top of the cliff that can be accessed by hiking up and throwing a rope and rappelling. If you're looking to do this route and want to practice it before, you can rap to the anchors and set a TR. It's a fun little route that should see some traffic. It's cleaner than most of the Quarry routes, so go do it!

Comments: There is only one real camping option IN Golden and that is the RV park along Clear Creek near the Community Center. The other "nearby" camping is Golden Gate State Park about 15 miles into the foothills. One drawback to the traveling climber in this area is the camping. There is a Wal-Mart on I-70 in Wheatridge, but other than that you've gotta be stealthy in and around town. Good luck.

Yes, there is climbing. Clear Creek Canyon is the best local option, N. Table Mtn. is your closest seco... more >>

Comments: 12d/13a...classic slash grade. Great movement, fun climbing on a weird looking formation.

Comments: We actually started this route from the left via a large flake and mini-horn, coming from the right seemed a little silly. Do easier climbing up to the 2nd bolt on decent holds and good stemming, then moving beyond the second and third bolt is the definitive crux here. A nice boulder problem leads to an awkward and thrutchy move up to and past the 5th bolt, which leads to more 5.10/11-climbing that's just so-so. The meat of this route is the first 4 bolts; however, it is a fun outin... more >>

Comments: I've never NOT seen draws on this route in the 6 years I've been climbing at Primo, so it seems logical to me that the superior Perma-draws would be well suited here. If draws are always going to be on that route, wouldn't it make sense that the nicest Permadraws would be the safest option? Thanks for rebolting and adding the draws, Action Fund!

Comments: Sweet! Nice, Matt, I agree, more people should definitely go climb on this thing. The rock quality is great, especially for not ever seeing any action and the movement is really fun. One of those hidden, obscure gems in CCC.

Comments: When Hipster was a new crag, I stirred up 5 rattlesnakes on the hike out. Had a very close call with one that struck at my legs. That area is very snaky.

Comments: Nice, Kevin! Glad someone finally commented on this thing. We thought the climbing turned out to be really good, and yes, that last clip is pretty difficult. Hope you get back out and do it!

Comments: The water is super low and temps have been in the 70s for a while. Really great route though! More people should wade over there and do this thing.

Comments: Just wondering who else has done this thing...seemed ridiculously sandbagged at 12c, so wanted to post it and see if others agree. It's probably on par with things like Finger Prince, Chaos, etc. If anyone has a differing opinion on the grade, then enlighten us all.

Comments: Just a warning, but the bolts on this route look a little suspect. Inspect for yourselves.

Comments: Someone unscrewed the hanger from the third bolt and left the hanger/quicklink/draw at the base. I found the nut and replaced the hanger with a new draw (I attached the sling that was on there to the first draw on the slab). Just wanted to know why this hanger was unscrewed? Oh, and I replaced the quick link with a big beefy stainless one. So psyched on this route and soooooo close to sending! Thanks for the revival of this crag, Brian!

Comments: Have you guys been trying that black line project from the ground. I ventured up there the other day to scope it and found the bottom to the first bolt about as chossy as it gets, and I don't typically scare from "some" choss. I bailed but thought the top bit you're talking about looked pretty cool. I also thought about traversing in from Idiot Savant with some slings, looks doable. I'd like to know if I was just being overly cautious when dinner plates of rock were coming out in my hands he... more >>
