Comments: That is smell the meat. Mouse meat is obvious on the right and you can just barely see evening extacy on the left.

Comments: Split Lizard, 10d. It does require some gear and long draws.

Comments: Someone took the chains off the anchors of this climb in the last year. Seriously, what kind of douche nozzle steals anchors? Been happening to a number of routes up here.

Comments: As requested by the clipping masses, I added a bolt to get rid of the runout. Sigh...I feel dirty.

Comments: Someone took the steel, Fixe rap rings off the anchors leaving only one quicklink on each bolt. That means someone went up there with a wrench to gank the rappel anchors; nice job.

Comments: It really is a shame to see bolts next to that crack; it would eat up gear, but bolts are convenient. I'd wanted to go up that feature for a while but never found the time. The holds pulling through the roof may be suspect; be careful, that diving board feature seems cemented in well for now, but it feels really spooky trusting it. Sorry about the pup; my dogs have loved main elk too.

Comments: Most of the bones are from a cow elk that went down there from sickness about 6-7 years ago. I watched the poor thing for two weeks or so when I was stopping by after work. Contacted the BLM about euthanizing her. She went down on her own. Stayed away for about a year because of the smell. Called them the dead elk instead of East Elk Boulders after that.

Comments: This is another one of my routes. Sorry about the choss at the top out. When cleaning this route initially, I dislodged a rather large block at the top out exposing soil at the edge. Spent a day up there with a mc loud raking but have left the rest to time. Fist of Elder is mine as well; I named it after a fist-sized clump of box elder bugs I found on it while cleaning.

Comments: Voluntary seasonal falcon closure notice for the Fortress of Solitude from February 15- July 31. The closures as of now are route specific. The central super routes (Daily Planet to Flex Luthor) are open. Once nesting has been determined routes may open. No new routing (noisy power drills) can happen during this time period even in the open areas of the main cave. Any routes east of the main cave remain open. Please no caching of gear on Forest Service land. The forest service has been ve... more >>

Comments: Jim, glad to see a helpful member of the community post relevant info on this site. Sorry that my dialogue here led to discreet access of the routes as described on splitterchoss.com (great site for info unless your a "real local" and already know it all). I'm sure it would have been much better to have all access denied as other obvious invaders to your ancestral Ute homeland would have stumbled up to unknown real locals-only climbs described in two guidebooks. Oh and thanks for the polite ... more >>

Comments: BJ, sorry to offend you by reporting conditions. I'm not trying to hold out my own candy and deny it to others; I'm trying to share current access information rather than ignore the situation. The Drool (one drainage north of the False Drool) is on private property, however the owner (who rents out the house next to it) is not adverse to climbers discreetly approaching it from the road. The False Drool (described as the Drool in two guide books) is also on private property where the... more >>

Comments: As of Sunday 12/11/5: Avocado is thin but in, Dance is in (but does not exist), The Drool is in, the False Drool is in (But stay away unless your willing to talk to the owners and bring bottle of wine. Also, property owners talk; don't risk closure of the Drool by sneaking onto the "Dribble", both are on private land), Hays Creek is in, haven't driven up to Marble yet to look at Milton Creek (Marble Falls), but could guess that it's a a thin shell on top with a window into the creek.... more >>

Comments: Climbed the first two hundred feet of Glenwood Falls on 12/10/5. It was in but getting very warm by 11am. If cold temps continue, it should remain; just leave the house earlier than nine o'clock. If it matters, saw no ice in the Deep Throat. The line to the right of Glenwood Ffalls was in. According to friend, Hidden Falls is in; From I-70, Mystery Falls (across from Grizzly) looks in.

Comments: Snuck up the mixed route to the right of Glenwood Falls on Sunday. We had to back in the on ramp at Hanging Lake with the exit closed from rock fall. Not technically a legal approach right now, but it works. Some of the best conditions I've seen the lower portions of this route in; I actually used screws for pro instead of rock gear. The second pitch was sinker WI 3 ice. The third pitch pillar wasn't in yet. Might not last long if it warms up; Glenwood Falls left looked... more >>

Comments: A great resource for current conditions in Ouray and Silverton is Skyward Mountaineering. skywardmountaineering.com/curr... I was too broke to get down there this last weekend, I've heard currently the skiing is better than the ice. Mid week last week (11/16th-17th), a good buddy had some good climbs in the south mineral area. I would be leary with the recent snow fall.

Comments: Generally yes. All the established routes can be done with a single rope. The option exists on the West Side to go "exploring" above the cragging routes. Most of this is low angle with a few worthwhile cracks. You may want a second rope for rappelling off trees and other various anchors. If you really want quality multi pitch routes that require two rope descents in the Glenwood area, head across the Colorado River between the Hanging Lake and Shoshone exits.
