Comments: Not true. There are plenty of sandbags to keep you busy as well.

Comments: This is an awesome line, and a great addition to Eagle Rock.
The first half is really fun, and the upper headwall is classic.
I didn't see a piton at the start, so I used the first 2 bolts above the belay for 'Eagle Hardware', then moved right for 7 bolts on 'Barely Eagle' (9 bolts total, long sling on bolt 2).
The bolts are snug and solid right now, and the rock has cleaned up very nicely.
Thanks for another fantastic Front Range Sport route from Team Shred!

Comments: Hi Ken,
I agree %100 about the need for another bolt above the anchor at the start of pitch 2.
My partner at the time didn't want to put a bolt in that section, but the rock is not suitable for reliable, clean protection.

I no longer have access to a drill, otherwise I would definitely put another bolt in there.

If anyone feels motivated to do so themselves, please feel free. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!,
Enjoy the climbs.

Comments: I noticed two new routes at Sphinx Wall when I was there in mid July 2014.
They are between 'Hot Milk' and 'Wyoming Wave'.
One is a 13a, and the other a 12b. (According to the chalk written at the base of each route)
They both look great! Can't wait to try them out.

Comments: The bolt that protects the big Dyno seems loose. The actual bolt stud seems to wiggle a bit inside its hole. This bolt probably sees a lot of abuse with repeated falls from this hard section.

Just a heads up for anyone planning to get on the route.

Comments: This is an amazing challenge, and certainly deserves its own name and route description. As if redpointing just one of the five routes on the north face wasn't hard enough, this effort will really wear you out!

Comments: This is a cool line that should clean up with more ascents. Get on it!
Stay on the arÍte at mid route (instead of sneaking left into the dirty cracks) for full value.

Comments: The route feels a bit more pumpy through the crux now that the jug-edge is gone, and the last 2 clips are a bit different as well. Definitely feels like 12d now. Still just as good as ever though!

Comments: The left anchor bolt could use some Loctite. The nut was quite loose today. The hooks at the top are a nice treat though.

Great climb!!

Comments: 'Plinko' is unlike anything I have ever climbed in Ten Sleep. Kind of like the 'Beer Bong' on steroids, with a squeeze chimney at the top. My partner couldn't help but laugh at me as I grunted, moaned, giggled, squirmed, and squeezed my way up this wild feature. Face climbers will probably find this hard for 5.10b. I was happy to have experience with chimney climbing. Great vision. Classic!
Now every time I watch 'The Price Is Right' I think of this route.

Comments: This is certainly the best line @ High Wire Crag. A long route with varied climbing on great rock and great position high above the rest of the wall. Great movement from start to finish. Tricky beta might make it feel a bit stiff at first, but with the right sequences, it comes together nicely at around 12c (might be harder for short folks). Exciting finish as well. This route is often overlooked but deserves more traffic and should be on anyone's 12+ C.C.C. ticklist.

Comments: Great route! It would be a classic if not for the first half of the route. The upper corner is fantastic, with great rock and fun climbing!
Big thanks to Mr. Snyder for developing another area of awesome routes!

Comments: This line is sick!!! Saw it while doing the other routes in the area, and was very curious. Didn't have any info on the route, but it looked too good to pass up. It was unclear how positive the flake would be from the ground. It ended up being wrap around jugs the whole way up the flake! The 'approach' slab was also really fun. LONG route, but I just barely made it down with a 60 meter rope. Tie a knot in the end of your rope!!

Comments: This is an ultra classic line! Best 12c I've done, and one of the best pitches in the area. I feel fortunate to have had the chance to climb the route with the current modern hardware. Big thanks to Mr. Weidner for taking the time and effort to clean and bolt this beauty. He did a perfect job. It would be very disappointing to see the bolts removed. All the 'haters' in this discussion should go climb the route in its current state and then form their opinions. I watched a guy attempt to lead the... more >>

Comments: The 2nd to last bolt (the last bolt in the overhang) has come loose and the hanger is now spinning. If anyone is planning to get on the route, please bring a wrench to tighten down the loose bolt. I did not have a wrench with me that day, but I will bring one next time I am up there.

I replaced the lowering carabiners on the anchor chains. The old ones were worn more than halfway through!
