Comments: This is an Awesome climb, but I second what Phil says. Shit can happen and I don't like having one bolt between me on the technical crux and a 25 plus fall to the rocks below. It's possible that I just didn't look hard enough but I didn't find anything I would call adequate protection to put in leading up to the first bolt. By adequate I mean something I would be confident could hold the fall if that first bolt failed. Getting to the first bolt is a bit sketchy but my concern is more about m... more >>

Comments: Sorry but I feel compelled to speak up on this subject. No disrespect to anyone is intended. In fact this comment is all about respect. Adding bolts to some elses's route to make it less scary or convenient without getting permission from the FA'ers is bad style and disrespectful. PERIOD....

With the advent of sport grid bolting in Boulder Canyon, I can understand how this ethic is being lost or not understood by newer generations of climbers. In fact, it might not be understood by some in the... more >>

Comments: This route is awesome and was feared by most back in the day. The knife blade that was originally their didn't offer much even in the form of psychological pro. Thought it was closer to 11+ back then but that was in EB's. Hell of a lead by Mr. Smoot! I did a continuation of this route with Mark Rolofson and Les Ellison. @ 1983 It adds some more run out 5.10 climbing up and left from the end of the roof and was some pretty good climbing as I recall.
We called it the Lunch Bucket variation.

Comments: Did this today and found the top pin that protected the straight up thin crack version and has been there for 15 plus years is missing. I always thought it looked pretty solid but I see in a post above that it came out when some one was cleaning the pitch. I don't doubt that it has been fallin on many times in the past but over the years with freeze thaw these things can loosen .

This seemed to me, at the time, that it changes the route quite a bit from when the pin was there. I am in a climbi... more >>

Comments: This is such an awesome route! The bottom crack is burly, and the upper slab climbing is continuous thought provoking and exciting. One of the best in the Flatirons and not to missed if you're up for it. Kudos to Brett and Tim for putting up this masterpiece.

For gear: blue 3, red 1, and purple Camalots; green Alien; blue, yellow Metolius TCU and 1 red C3.

Great write up by Steve.
