Comments: The large block that is mentioned as a possible rap anchor in the comments above can be reached in one pitch from the ground with a 60m rope. The downclimb is not so bad, just watch where you are going and you'll be fine. No need to rap at the end of the descent, cut left (facing down the rock) and look for a low angle ramp that leads to the gound.

Comments: I'm not chastising anyone, that fact remains that it is altered, not in it's natural state and therefore "Chipped" by this sites standards. I think more of the routes at the Sport Park should be on the black list however. At least Owl on the Prowl has no drilled pockets!.....

Comments: Ok, I must make it harder than it needs to be because last time I did this route my second (Lindsay Gill) walked up it in tennis shoes!...

Comments: I led this route recently and agree with those who feel that it is pretty difficult for 10.a, even in Eldo. I combined the 1st two pitches on double ropes clipping the second rope only to gear on pitch 2. This provided more than adequate protection for the second. This is one of the best pitches I've ever done in Eldo but caution anyone who is at their limit on 10.

Comments: This pitch is far more enjoyable with tape, those Pikes Peak crystals put a hurtin' on the hands. Hot Flashes is still waiting for the f.f.a. of pitch two; down climb the Sphinx Crack route....

Comments: I led the first pitch 3 days ago and have to say I stand somewhere between Charles and Brian's comments. The pitch is dangerous but after the initial moves off the ground you get a good piece at about 20 feet and then the climbing eases a bit. The pro is rather sparse (iffy RP) but the holds (I cut back right) were positive. Once you reach the pegmatite bulge you can get another good piece to protect the only other difficult move before entering the dihedral. If there were more suspect r... more >>

Comments: Just in case the Bucksnort is closed next time I go, (opens at 4pm on week days) how about adding some of those routes. I'd love to read some more on this area, it seems there is even still some new routes going up plus tons of great ones that are not very well documented in the books.

Comments: Pitch 3 is the crux offwidth with the bushes, Hubbel's book calls it 5.8, but whoever rated it must have forgotten how hard it was or maybe there were more bushes to pull on. After this pitch, Hill's Route walks off the backside. I believe that getting to the chains mentioned above would include a pitch of 5th class climbing, maybe 5.9??. Hill and I cut right on the ramp where we got onto a different route. It is a good variation and adds a few fun pitches, one of which is 5.9 hand crack. Goo... more >>

Comments: Pitch 3 and 4 as described above can be combined into a spectacular 200' pitch to the top. I think a petition to the Eldo Committy to change the name of this route to "Myke's Stopper Slab" is in order, I'll sign

Comments: Poo poo is still not oozing as of 04/25/02, the fixed nut is gone that I found earlier, a #4 Camalot came in handy. I climbed with Lindsay Gill who forgot her climbing shoes and managed the route (as well as Green Slab) in sneakers, burly...

Comments: This route has some nasty fall potential, I would not recommend it to anyone who is not really solid on 5.10 South Platte friction climbing. There are significant runouts after the third bolt and above the fourth. Good route for a helme

Comments: The aformentioned "loose and runout climbing up to the crux" at the start of pitch 2 is only runout if you choose not to place gear. There is a good small cam placement before entering the steep section below the crux. Use long draws on this and the next piece and you can reach the top in one long pitch with no rope drag. I Don't bring anything larger than a .75 Camalot for this route, it's one of my favorite.

Comments: I didn't see any need for the #3 Friend at the roof, there are bolts the entire way. I did, however, use the gear I brought to set up an anchor on the comfortable ledge about 15 feet above the bolted anchor on a sloping ledge. The route is actually 200' and could be led in one long pitch. Great route!!!!
