Comments: Hey guys, censorship will not change anything. Profanity will always exist and a word is just a word (reference "sticks and stones..."). I don't like what you named your kids, frankly it offends me, I hope you don't mind if I call them whatever I want.

Comments: If you are using the crack to the left, you are not climbing 5.10! That crack goes at about 5.7 (if that). I personally think the crack should have its own name and rating. I know someone FA'd it. Put a name on it and subtract it from P&L.

Comments: I give it a 7. If you keep moving through the crux and stay focused, it's a cakewalk. Hang around and place gear on it, you just sandbagged yourself. I'll give that 9 variation an 8+ at best, there are obscure but good feet all the way up it. All in all, it's a great intro to 5.7 Eldo climbing.

Comments: height dependent rating. I am 5'7" so this is like a 10b for me. lot's of fun though. I hope that little crystal of calcite stays for a while.

Comments: Pitch 1 I found myself amidst the most technical climbing on this pitch looking at a slabby 50 footer. None of the climbing is super hard, but the crux of the route is pretty stingy as far as pro is concerned. In hindsight I may have been off route (not hard to do here since the guidebook is super-old and not very good). I did not encounter the afforementioned bolt.

It can be a real meat grinder.

Comments: If this route is 5.8, my dog wants to sell you a bridge in Frisco!!! Any route with an overhanging handcrack should not be considered an 8.

Comments: The runout at the top is definitely hairy. I seconded this route and after I cleaned the last draw before the anchors I had images of taking a winger across a cheese grater-like slab.

To add insult to injury amidst my struggle; the guy who led it did it in his Chacos. Effin Gunnison kids!

Comments: Firstly, I am not a "badass" I am a purist with tolerances. As for being on the edge, yes I am on the edge of my abilities and I keep pushing, whether I am skiing, snowboarding, climbing, or riding a bike. I have no conquest to be "Rad" I am just being. And yes these people are doing what they love. I can't blame them for seeing a road and taking it, rightfully my angst should be directed towards John Conway, George Anderson, and The Sierra Club. But again, these folks had no idea what can of wo... more >>

Comments: Port o potties??? Are you effin kidding me!!! Look at all those fat people in a place they don't belong, a place that can and has killed their kind. I am trying so hard to abide by "Guideline #1" here so forgive me for riding the fringe, but I am a climber, it is in my nature to be on the edge. This is a terrible sight to see, I think that people that do not take the time to learn the respect it takes to be in an environment of this nature have absolutely no right to be there.

Comments: Dubious ratings. Calypso felt closer, yet so far from an 8 than Reggae did. Both routes have a sketchy section (groundfall onto jagged pain on Calypso and a nasty winger into a dihedral on Reggae), but honestly, I got worked harder on the "6" than I did on the "8". Well, now marks the day when I give up on the number system.
