Comments: An absolutely fantastic route. The anchor should certainly not be lowered, as the climbing on soft rock is easy and protectable, and actually quite fun. I placed a green alien in the horizontal. This piece is suspect in the soft rock, but even if it pulls your next cam is not far below and there is nothing to hit if you fall. I lowered off on a 70 meter rope.

Comments: One of the very best. Pumpy and sustained, with hardly a shake between the 2nd and 6th bolts. I personally think that In Your Face is a harder 12d to redpoint, though. If you're comparing the grade to other areas, however, this would go as 13b in a certain local climbing area with cream puff ratings that I will not name.

Comments: It seems as if Boulder climbers are insecure with grades. Porch Monkey would hold the 12b/c grade in Rifle (which is a warm-up there if you were not aware), so if climbing at this grade is a big deal to you then live it up, and yes you will be able to climb practically every 12b in Rifle if you can climb Porch Monkey (have fun waiting in line with all the other dolts!).

Comments: Dear Friends:

I came upon this website by accident, but it brought back memories. I was a high school wrestler from Homewood-Flossmoor H. S. in Illinois and visited Devils Lake with a teacher and group. I climbed Darcy in 1969. I remember the thinness of the holds. I had a new (now very old) pair of Royal Robbins climbing boots and was going up from a top anchor point (of course).

I still think of the climb and would like to visit again someday. A lot of year have passed. I live in Houston... more >>

Comments: There is a trick to clipping the bolt that makes it pretty easy. Just climb a little way up the 2nd pitch of Chockstone and from a good jug reach around the corner to the bolt. Great way to add a little extra climbing to Chockstone even if it is a bit contrived.

Comments: Did this while waiting for the two nearby classics to lose the crowds. I'm still wondering why I got on a climb with the words 'hand wobbler' in the name. This thing flares the entire way, and I had a hell of a time with the crux roof.

Might not be so bad, but you're almost certain to hit the ramp if you blow the roof, which is rattly fists.

We topped out and walked off. It's probably 25 feet of 5.4-5.5 unprotected to top out.

This thing messed with my head, and I still think about i... more >>

Comments: Further west of Rose Hill, at Willow Canyon Crags South, on Alpine Pinnacle on the route "What If It", there's a hole with a massive amount of bees towards the top of the route, and you won't see them instead they start buzzing around as you get closer..the route directly to the right, "Weekend Warriors" also runs quite close to this hole..

Comments: Chris - The route marked in the picture is the Helicopter, not Pop goes the Weasel. Maybe that's the source of the confusion?

Pop is a variation on the start of Helicopter and is way harder - like two or three V grades or so......

The Black Hole has all sorts of contrived problems that are variations on the Helicopter - Pop Goes the Weasel, Miss Clairol, Revlon and Death by Drowning come to mind. The info on this web site is worthless to figure out which is which. Find someone who has been bou... more >>

Comments: If you have them, bring some sturdy-soled boots to scramble into this area, the amount of broken glass from the good ole boys hurling beer bottles down here is mind-boggling..goes for the whole East Windy Point area...I hiked in with trail running shoes and was OK but would have felt much safer with my boots with Vibram soles..

Also, an adjustable trekking pole is helpful for the loose scramble if you're carrying the gear, especially on the way back up..

Comments: This route is really silly. The move at the bottom is ok, but this is one move, and it deposits you on a grassy ledge, which you then walk up a bit to some irrelevant upper moves. I really don't see why this was bolted.

Boulder the bottom move, it's not too high and the landing is fine.

Comments: If you are coming onto this route ("Small Brown Mouse") for the first time, it is at least a 5.9c. Luckily the bolts are placed well so that the spots where a climber is likely to have trouble will give you safe drops through the air. A fun, and exciting climb for intermeadiate leaders. Two Stars! I agree with Thorkel that this is the hardest route on this rock from an overall perspective. Tony Lusk's excellent "Firezone" has a more technical starting move, but dropping 4 feet off the mantle she... more >>

Comments: Lots of gear on 4th pitch! My partner and I got into a jam last night when we ran out of light and had foolishly left our headlamps at home. Because of this, our cleaning of the 4th pitch was hurried and whoever is the first to climb it today (Saturday, October 8th) will find some decent pieces. Of that person wishes to trade those piece for some tasty beer and good karma, please call Ryan @ 303.746.5643 and I will happily pick them up.
