Comments: The bolt is still missing (11/27/10). I have no idea when I will be there again, but I'll try to remember to bring the tools to replace it if no one else has by then.

Comments: Make sure you have at least a 60m rope for this crag, and watch your ends lowering/rapping as most of the routes push 100'. There is some exposure along the ledges at the base and anything trundled (including yourself!) is likely to hit the trail below, so be careful. Have fun!

Comments: Has anyone been up there recently? I'm curious about snow conditions on the north face - any useful info regarding a ski descent would be greatly appreciated.

Comments: After climbing this again last season, I would agree it's tough for the grade, or maybe I'm just getting weaker:)

Comments: Just to clarify there is another route to the right called Blue Steel (12a/b). It is shown on the topo on the Red Wall page.

Comments: I honestly can't remember much about it (it's been years now and I have a bad memory!). There aren't a lot of routes that hard around here to choose from, so I would say it's worth working. It has a definite crux fingerlockish move, bring tape. Good luck!

Comments: I thought the first pitch was the crux but definitely no harder than 5.8 (runout in a couple spots unless you have large cams). We climbed it in 4 pitches with a 70m rope but had to simul-climb a bit on a couple of them.

Comments: Gool Ol' Boys is around 12b/c if you use the OW/prow after the last bolt (which has been the "standard" line to this point). If you stay direct all the way to the anchor it is significantly harder (not exactly sure how hard).

Comments: This route is called The General Lee, and the description is appropriate. If you have trouble with the start you may want to reconsider - what looms above is not dangerous but it does pack a punch. With more ascents it could become a Poudre "classic". For those who want to up the ante, the variation to the left (Good Ol' Boys) is also worthy.

Comments: My apologies to Jonathan for overstating the single day push. It's definitely very do-able and I'm glad I didn't dissuade you. It's just a long route and you have to keep moving. Nice job on your ascent!

Comments: Solid French free skills are a must if you want to climb this in a day (unless you happen to be a bad ass free climber or capable of blasting through C1 aid). Our party of 3 did it in a day with the good fortune of having the route to ourselves - if crowded it would have been a much bigger challenge. We also spent the night before at the base and didn't sleep much due to bears rustling around very near us. We had our food hung in the trees, but that didn't provide much sleeping comfort laying... more >>

Comments: This is without a doubt one of the prime alpine areas in the country. My time there was limited so my partner and I only climbed the Beckey Direct, but this climb alone is well worth the trip up there. There are also many stellar boulders scattered about in the trees below the Perch. We started climbing on them and were blown away by the quantity and quality of problems.

Comments: This route gets 3 stars in my book. I agree that it probably doesn't deserve the R rating. That first pitch has it all - a classic hard, sustained alpine plumb line. I tried to free climb it and flailed - the gear is there but placing it is a battle and requires some coolness to say the least. I would love to get back up there and try it again. Too bad it's now 500 miles away. Get after it folks, and don't forget the RP's!

Comments: You've got to be kidding - night vision to bust stoners?!!!! If true that is ridiculous.
I haven't been to Zion for too long. Any new action on the north face of Cable Mountain? That wall always looked so nice......
