Comments: Leeanne- climbing might be tolerable in the shade, particularly in the morning and evening, and up in Dairy Canyon since it's a bit higher in elevation.

Climbing in the sun is likely going to be brutal. Temperatures will likely be in the upper 80's to low 90's.

Comments: As a result of flash flooding in the fall of 2013, most of the boulders in the 'Fast Twitch' area (a bunch of boulders in or bordering a wash) now have landings that are anywhere from 1-3 feet lower than they were previously. This will make many of the sit starts more like squat/stand starts. The boulders are also pretty dirty right now as they were covered with sand and mud during the floods.

Comments: Due to the flash flooding in the fall of 2013, the 'Wash Block' (aka Alien Boulder) is now about half buried making the problems unclimbable (or at least kind of pointless to climb). The 'Butt Hugger' boulder is completely gone.

Comments: Tavis- Trying to make sense of the grades at Joe's (especially the Caldiero guide) is a futile endeavor...

Comments: I can't believe this thing is dry!!

Nice video. Looks fun.

The real question is: Is Papilloma dry?

If so, I might have to fly back from Colorado! :)

Comments: Will's comment is probably the most accurate. I've seen plenty of really strong climbers struggle on this one, including ones who are quite good at slabs. This problem definitely favors taller climbers, as they can much more easily reach the better holds up high from better (if still small) feet.

Having climbed hard slabs all over the US and the world, I feel like this climb is pretty comparable to v7's or v8's that I've climbed elsewhere. Perhaps for taller climbers it feels significantly easi... more >>

Comments: Four stars for movement and aesthetics. One star for rock quality. So I guess that averages out to about two stars.

Intimidating move to the top, but fairly safe with three or four pads and a spotter.

Definitely worth doing!

Comments: How is this place in the winter? Is it climbable?

I'm thinking of taking a trip down there this week, so current conditions would be appreciated, but I'm also wondering about this area (or other Durango areas) as an occasional potential alternative to climbing in the Utah desert in the winter.

Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Comments: Mike--

I could easily see it being 5-ish. Given that wingspan plays a large role in this problem, I didn't want to sandbag the shorties out there.

A shorter friend of mine (who climbs v10) had to grind his face against the rock just to be able to make the move out to the arete.

I haven't tried Bryce's dyno from the starting holds (and won't get to for quite a while) so perhaps that will eliminate the wingspan dependence.

Either way, I'm always happy when people share their opinions/thoughts... more >>

Comments: Thanks Mark! Yes, it was indeed a lot of fun making it.

If you haven't already, check out the recent Rumney one we put together. I'm sure you'll enjoy seeing footage of a place where you've spent so much of your time!

Comments: While the committing last move is definitely the mental crux, this problem is still physically challenging and definitely deserving of the v6 grade (on the harder side in my opinion). It climbs more like a route, with no real defined crux, but lots of sustained difficulty.

Either way, it's an excellent climb and worth doing if you can confidently climb that grade.

And here's Part 2!

The Pawtuckaway Project is our attempt to document some of the best climbs at Pawtuckaway, with a focus on less frequently shown/climbed lines that we think are outstanding. Part 2 is a collection of footage shot during the Fall of 2013. It includes three possible/probable first ascents.

Problems shown are: 'Universal Socket' (v6+), 'Red Right Hand' (v6), 'The Hug' (v6), 'Rubber Cement' (v8), 'Check Your Method' (v8), 'Dopeman Right' (v8), 'Lost At ... more >>
