Location: WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : Superratic Pillar : Ooh La La (5.12a)

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: An instant classic! My favorite route of the week on the island.

Comments: I also thought the route felt like 13a after my first burn, but after refining the sequences, it felt a little more reasonable.
The sustained nature and poor rests make it feel harder than 'Tiger's'; however, there may not be any one single move that is as hard. Still very stout and my favorite at the Quarry.

Comments: The route is more challenging now that the 'crimper-pocket' is gone.

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!!


Location: WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : Dry Wall : After 5 Crag : Plinko (5.10b)

Comments: 'Plinko' is unlike anything I have ever climbed in Ten Sleep. Kind of like the 'Beer Bong' on steriods, 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.


Location: CO : Golden : Clear Creek Canyon : High Wire Crag : Road Warrior (5.12d)

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!

Comments: This climb is a masterpiece, combining fantastic movement, awesome exposure, and great rock. 'Walk on Water' is an instant classic that should not be overlooked.

Comments: Beware of the flake at the top. The climbing above the first anchor looks dirty and uninteresting. The climbing to the first anchor is sustained and INCREDIBLE!!! Classic.

Comments: The hanger on the crux bolt spins a little...may have loosened a little from the repeated massive whippers off the crux? May need to be tightened a bit?
Amazing route!!!!!

Comments: Some questionable fractured blocks exist at the end of the route, to the far right of the last bolt. Choose your holds wisely. Otherwise, a fun and mostly solid route.

Comments: Some poor rock high on the route but otherwise great if you stay in the bolt line. Long and sustained with a few crucial rests near the end. The crux felt like moving from 5th to 6th bolt, but hang on for the next several bolts. A tough move at the very end could deny the send. A near classic for the area.

Comments: With a 70 meter rope, from the top of pitch 2, I could JUST BARELY rappel down to the area near the start of the climb. Tie knots in the ends of your rope. This really is a great climb. The rock, and steep nature of the climb, seemed unique for the 'Mary's Bust' area.

Comments: Very enjoyable moderate climbing on good stone for the first half, into an amazing crux headwall with awesome movement and beautiful stone.
These routes are worth a visit.
