Comments: I don't mind a healthy debate but MP is a community resource. I'm totally open to comments and suggestion on ways to improve the DL area and routes, but backhanded sniping can stay on facebook.

By the way, Zachary/Nic, I completely agree with you about statistical outliers in rating consensus. You may have noticed that mountain project no longer counts any very high or very low outliers. It is relying more upon a medium. As you recall from math class however, this requires several individuals ... more >>

Comments: So my understanding is using the crack is maybe V2 or 3 but eliminating it seemed every bit a V5. Thus the "V4+" rating. As an eliminate, it's pretty damn fun to avoid that crack altogether if you are bored. Likely a Steve Schultz FA as the eliminate, long ago.

Comments: LOL, this was actually a film camera photo that I scanned. I am 99% sure I used a polarizing filter which I guess is old school for added saturation though. :)

Comments: Doesn't this boulder problem qualify as a 4 star problem? Nice setting, an obvious start hold, interesting moves, a topout, and a relatively flat landing. All the stars. Nicely done, Paul.

Comments: Do not expect biners at the chains for the climbs. They have repeatedly been placed and then removed by people who should know better.

Also DO NOT PARK IN THE HORSE BARN LOT TO CLIMB AT QUAL WALL. PARK ALONG THE ROAD. THE RANGERS HAVE MADE IT CLEAR THEY DON'T WANT CLIMBERS PARKING IN THAT GRASS LOT.

Comments: The downed trees are tricky because you are allowed to cut up fallen trees for campfires, but for that you need to rent a group site. You can't just show up and start cutting. So, the WCA is coordinating a time for that to happen but it won't be in the next few weeks probably. There is still plenty to climb.

If you get bored there, the "north shore" area at DL is easy to find, and from there you can hike the east bluff trail and there is a lot that's easy to find along there, too. Likewis... more >>

Comments: John- how much time you got and what are your goals? High concentration of stuff with easy approaches at gov dodge, but rock can be suspect. DL stuff is more spread out with better rock but longer approaches. Either area you choose I'm sure you will have fun. There was a storm that knocked over some trees at the best area at the dodge recently (group camp B) and some problems are covered on deadfall right now.

Comments: May just be a "variation" (I don't know what EZ did on FA) but we weren't sure about those semi-detached blocky feet at the start. It goes both ways, but is obviously easier with the blocky feet (and much less painful). Seemed like old school V5 (V6?) without them, V4 or so with. Either way, fun problem with a sweet approach.

Comments: A cool feature of mountain project is the "Difficulty Rating" graph for each area (scroll up on this page). For Spearfish, it looks like a nice bell curve centered at 5.11, but actually slightly skewed towards the 5.10 side and away from the 5.12 side. Looks like there are about 150 5.11 routes, 130 5.10 routes, and 120 5.12 routes, with maybe 60 5.9 and under routes.

Thanks for the hard work Mike, and good to see you out there a couple weeks ago at the Shadowlands/Icebox.
