Comments: What a blast. I think the best part about this area is that so many 5.5-5.7 variations are possible, you don't really need to worry about being on any previously established "route." Fun, a little runout in spots, but a great half-day, accessible alpine adventure.

Comments: We got on this after assuming from the description in Rock Climbing Arizona that it was a sport climb protected by two bolts. Kind of a scary climb if you go up with just a couple of quickdraws and no gear.

Comments: We climbed the Forbes Route on April 12, after it had poured rain on and off in Tucson the day before. The night before, the summit pyramid was obscured by a cloud, which we didn't realize meant it was snowing up there. The Great Ramp was dry, but pellets of snow and ice were dropping off the top onto us. Above the Great Ramp, we encountered about 4-6 inches of snow all the way to the Ladder Pitch, which was running in water and looked to have a little snow on the route.

Comments: I had a blast on this route. Lots of fun moves, and maybe most of the offending moss is gone now? Whatever. We used a 70-meter rope and still didn't reach the ground -- my partner lowered me to the end of the rope and I untied from about 5 feet up, where there was a good stance.

Comments: Hey, this place is pretty legit, if you don't mind bouldering while a bunch of kids are playing around next to you. I think the traverse is around V2, at least as far as I could flounder across it. The boulders were made by Monolithic, in Boulder, who makes some pretty cool stuff. I wrote a short piece on my blog: denver.yourhub.com/DenverNorth...

Comments: I second Leo's comments. We found two decent pieces for pro in the first pitch, and the first was 40 feet off the deck. We ended up taking the third pitch out left to the ledge that sits underneath the last three bolts of Hell Freezes Over, and scrambled off the back from there. This route has a pretty heinous approach.

Comments: Thanks for putting up your info, Tim. We did our best to follow your line, but I think we got off-route and ended up on some harder-than-5.2 stuff in a couple of spots. We had The Slab to ourselves, save one free soloist, on a Sunday afternoon, and we had a blast. I left new webbing and a rap ring on the anchor.

Comments: The first 12 feet up to a jug was really slick with sand the last time I did this. You can actually get a little run at it and jump up to the first big hold and catch it with both hands. Not real professional but neither is having your partner shove you up to the first good hold.

Comments: I've been here a couple of times and enjoyed it -- all the bullets seemed to be aimed away from the crag, which was nice. There were a couple moments where the guys with the ATVs and guns looked at us and wondered why we'd waste a day climbing up rocks, and we wondered why they'd waste a day shooting guns into the side of a mountain. There was quite a bit of broken glass scattered on the ground around Punk Rock, but all in all, it was fun.

Comments: Dreamtime (5.5) right next door uses the same rap anchors as this one, so you can climb Dreamtime to set up a toprope on both routes.
