Comments: With my next batch of pamphlets, I'll kick this up to 5.11c. Did this route right after Richard and Chris put it in. I may have been climbing better back then.

Comments: Did this route in the late '80s with my daughter Carrie, and to this day, I still think it's the best route I've done in the South Platte.

Comments: There's now a Direct start to Bombodido. You no longer need to do the offwith at the start. The new start has 5 bolts and is just left of the original start. For the total climb, you now need 9 bolts and the anchor. Also, the loose blocks encountered while lowering off have been removed. This direct start was done by Carrie Robertson and Reggie Slavens.

Comments: Glen, it was your route on the pinnacle that make us think of bolting some sport routes there. I also donít know were Stuart got some of the names, but one of the administrators, Leo Paik, fixed all the routes name for us. -Great route.

Comments: The old bolt on the third pitch wasnít replaced, because there is a good small cam placement just to the left of it. When Art and I did the route small cams didnít exist.


Location: CO : Canon City : Shelf Road : Spiney Ridge : Down n' Dirty (5.10c)
By: Bob Robertson When: Mar 19, 2008

Comments: I also agree that Down n' Dirty is a good long route. It has a lot of varied climbing from thin crack to fun face. With fat fingers it could be one hard 5.10c. However, if Carrie Robertson can walk in on crutches and do the first ascent, she should be able to get her name on the first ascent.

Comments: Great climb with the crux at the last bolt.This climb is way harder then 5.11c.I've done 5.12a that are much easer.

Comments: Here again I would like to say that Tanner Dome and Tanner Rock, are not the same place. Tanner Dome is off Oak Creek Grade Road (Fremont Country Road 143) at mile marker 11.Tanner Dome has 60+ routes. Tanner Rock only has one.

Comments: It seems to me that a lot of people are confusing Tanner Dome with Tanner Rock. Tanner Dome is the large Dome off Oak Creek Grade Road. Tanner Rock is a small Rock, off highway Co.96,with only one route.

Comments: Went climbing the first weekend in August 2002 at the Amphitheater. All the first bolts were missing on the _easily_ reached first bolts. The routes looked ok, but some of the second bolts look a bit high. Make life easy and take a hanger and nut.

Comments: The route that takes off right of Raven is called Total Recall 5.10c. The bolts may not be were you want them, but they are were the rock is best.


Location: CO : Canon City : Shelf Road : The Gym : The Crack of Dawn (5.10b)

Comments: This route was done by Richard Asher and myself on natural pro. Carrie and I went back, recleaned the crack, and bolted it. We then went back a second time and changed the hangers. We think it's one of the best 10s we have done at Shelf.
