Comments: Bag and Pack has been closed a few years now. I was trying to figure out if the railroad was abandoned or not through the rails to trails conservancy but was unable to find out for sure.
If anyone would like to help....
I sent an email to Eagle Valley Land Trust to see if they would be willing to look into this project. Who would like to see a path from Minturn to Leadville?

Comments: You can get a guide from Bob on his website for $5 in black and white. A few more bucks for color.
The climbing area is referred to as Badger Mtn area by Bob.

Comments: The last Piton on the first pitch is missing. Didn't seem to be a big deal, but I was cleaning this pitch and didn't notice the run-out, if any.

Comments: It must have been a boring day for the first ascensionist. I found the crux to be above the cam in the horizontal. The moves past the bolt and pin seemed easy. One move wonder with consequences. I used a #3 camalot.

Comments: Bring a 70 or 80 meter rope!! 60 works, but I felt I missed out on a lot of stellar routes.
Love this place!

Comments: We followed the directions, but couldn't locate the crag. No climbing in Hungary for us. Off to Romanian and climbing for sure.

Comments: If you camp here, please be sure to extinguish your campfire thoroughly. A fire broke out on the afternoon of July 6, 2010. I cannot say for sure how it started, but I meet a group of 4 people breaking down camp the day before the fire. The fire originated from that fire pit. Please be firewise and prevent climbing closures!

Comments: To Ken Trout:

Please do not climb at ANY area that the Access Fund has helped maintain access to or purchased to preserve climbing. Please let me know what area you have preserved and I will not climb there. I could go on about how dumb your statement is but will refrain.

Comments: The rap stations looked the same from 5 years ago. Take webbing and a knife and clean it up. We replaced as many pieces as we could.

Comments: Great free climb! The anchors could use a little help, but the drilled pins still feel solid. We replaced a few sections of webbing on some anchors, the ones we thought were the worst of course. Use the overlaid photo for the best pitch desciption.

Comments: I didn't take the time to read all the comments above, but a great variation is to climb the first two pitches of Leisure, then traverse left to the third pitch of Midsummer's, and finish on Sex Comedy. Super fun!

Comments: The second pitch is harder than 10b if you have big hands, but that goes to say with most cracks. The fourth felt harder than 5.9 also. The book is correct when it says leader needs to be solid on 5.10.
I liked Journey Home better.

Comments: I just wanted to Thank Rob Dillon for his comments. I agree with all these points. Especially the dogs. They don't climb, why have one? They just eat up your climbing funds and other peoples food etc....
The Climbing Ranger, Brent is an extremly valuable asset to the Black Canyon. I hope he's around for a while. He gave me and my friend Erik some great route beta.
Thank Brent!

Comments: This is a letter I sent to Patagonia.
This wouldn't have been such a big deal if it had not been a publicity stunt and spread like wildfire through the press and ended up on the desk of the Department of the Interior. But since it did the relations between climbers and resource managers will take a long time to heal if they ever heal.

I think that Dean is an amazing climber, but he lost my respect by endangering climbing access to so many who have been trying for years to maintain good relatio... more >>

Comments: Is there a bolt on this route besides the anchors? I see it in the picture that describes the 2nd pitch var., but I never saw it. Route finding is tricky here. The way I read the book was the 3rd pitch took the left angling crack/flake with all the vegetation, but here it is described as the twin finger/hand cracks straight up. We took this cause it looked better. I thought this was Sun Dancer. Another party that was coming down thought the same thing and did the veggie var.

Comments: The grade I gave is for one of the cracks to the right of the standard south face route. It is the striking left arching hand crack. It finishes at the top of pitch 2 on the standard route.
My partner, Turtle also lead a crack system to the right of this which went up at around 5.9 to the bottom of the second summit. Both routes better than standard route.
