Comments: Great route! From the top of the second pitch (shares belay with Pope on Dope) we moved to the right and climbed an excellent 5.10 pitch with three distinct crack cruxes to the top of the rock, highly recommended. The second pitch seemed more like 5.8+

Comments: 10b seems like a sandbag to me, and I'm tall. Reaching the last hold before the anchors felt .11ish to me.

Comments: I thought this route was great because of the variety of moves one encounters, I wasn't expecting any slab climbing from the ground and thought I had already pulled the crux when I finnaly reached it. The excellent bolt job on this route was greatly appreciated, especially when I came flying off the crux!

Comments: Is 30 aught 6 one of the two cracks on the right hand side of the crag? One has a huge roof on P. 2 and the one to its left has what looks like an overhanging hand crack for its second pitch. I did the first pitch of the crack on the left up to a three piton anchor with slings and it was decent and the second looked awesome but wet...beta???, I lost my guidebook....

Comments: I went up and climbed Headline again today and you are right Guy, the three upper bolts on the new route between Conehead and Headline seem rather unneeded. The first three bolts make for a good direct start to the crack however.

Comments: The bolt is for Conehead but can be clipped from Headline. Conehead is just one of the many good routes Alan Nelson has put up in the canyon and I for one am thankful to him.

Comments: We also rapped to the ground with a 60m rope with no down climbing. I'd call the 1st pitch the crux lead but both pitches are three star quality.

Comments: [Brilliant] link up! I'd have to call the 1st pitch .11a and would consider an S rating for the roof on the last pitch. I did the first pitch of Le Void off the Upper Ramp and moved around the corner from the sling belay to join with the second pitch of Love Minus Zero and [recommend] it as well.

Comments: The rating for this route will go up considerably when the key hold at the crux (the bush) pulls out. Great pitch though, just say yes!!!!!!

Comments: Last pitch has spectacular exposure but the rock quality leaves a bit to be desired, climb carefully.

Comments: Great route but David is not kidding about the loose rock up there. I too clipped the bolt on Throne just below the anchor because I found the slab moves to be pretty tricky and well above my last piece (a small nut). I found good gear placements often occupied the good holds, mostly nuts and small cams. I also used the edge of S. Jam Crack at times for my right hand and foot and got a good rest. If going to the top it's probably better to climb past the anchor and belay a the next ledge wih a l... more >>

Comments: Got on this route yesterday for the first time and thought it was harder n' sheit, It didn't feel like other 10.c's I've done in Eldo and I was glad not be leading. With a 3.5 and 4.5 camalot in the wide spot and #1 at the crux it looked well protected but watch out for a loose flake at the bottom and one at the top of the second pitch. Last pitch is fun but spooky. There was a piece of old webbing wedged behind a flake with a steel rap link on the very summit, I hope people didn't really ... more >>

Comments: I'd agree with Myke and suggest that pitch two has some pretty serious fall potential as well, small and hard to get gear in the steep section kept my full attention. Fun route though!

Comments: It's possible that I was not on the intended route because I didn't see any evidence of chopped bolts and to climb the upper crack without gear would be hair rasing to say the least. Richard, does the description of the route and the moves sound like the route you established?

Comments: A stick clip might be useful for the first bolt because it is a tricky clip above some jagged boulders.

Comments: I was wavering between adding this as a chipped route or not and decided that it should be classified as such because it is at the Sport Park and several routes there are modified and I just wated to add my two cents worth that I think that is super lame. If the operators of this site want to change the route to "non-modified", I won't lose any sleep over it. After all compared to some off the routes up there the large dynamite scar seems subtle. My comment above should say "at least Ground Zero... more >>
