Comments: Rollingrock,

You sound like a genuine trolling wind bag. It is interesting to see you just joined this internet show on Sept 30, 2014 and have 1 point to your name.

How about some real climbers names, dates, location, pictures & descriptions?

Do you have any standing with your comment of such shallow substance?


You say, local Platte Valley climbers. Some of these sport routes were put up by Woody Barmore then of Walcott Junction and his domocile location is no doubt of the ... more >>

Comments: Aaron,

the 4 routes I posted we put up in 1994. Since then, Zach O and crew have put up more routes east of mine [near the SE corner] and I hear there is a route to the summit. I suspect Zach will not contribute any to this site as he is working on a guide book for it. In fact he does not cooperate with me to post what he has done. If you need routes names to post, think of some and use 'em. We can do an "AKA" when we see his completed book with other names for the same route.

Feel free t... more >>

Comments: Jason,

the rock is just above the canyon-bottom-granite and I suspect some portion of it is the Madison FM. The WY geology map tells one what is on the top. ..Some sandstone, limestone and dolomite cemented together and much stronger than it looks.

The right side is not as steep so there will be some warm up climbs for old guys and gals. The season will be over soon.

Comments: After leaving Stonnerville, WY Mica Burns spent 5 hrs driving 10 miles to find the Cliffs Beyond Difficulty. He attributed his difficuty to misreading these photo maps but I think he misread the labels on the Colorado Prescription which I did not write.

Comments: CJC,

my ego tells me the other side is insecure-uninformed control freaks that are not in control on this matter. If you guys really don't want to see this area not used why not form a pact in which members vow not to go into this area? But you lame hearts choose to use this internet instrument as the perpetrator for the shortfall of your grandiose views of preservation. Get some balls you weenies and act.

Cheers to Free Speech,

Dingus

Comments: There is BLM land just east and south of the north park exit off WY 317. No BLM maintained road exists for getting to this adjacent land but there is an ad hoc 2-track that ends after 200 feet at a make-shift campsite/firepit in the trees and shrubs. The pathway seems smooth enough for a Prius but there is not a lot turning around room.

Worried about clearance? Park your car [Low Belly] adjacent to the road and walk the 200 feet? There are other potential camping sites in this zo... more >>

Comments: The sections of "description", "protection" & "location" are not displaying for this route.

The climb is more typically a hand crack on the NNW side of the spire.

Comments: Taken from above: ...Joe Kelsey's book Climbing & Hiking in the Wind River Mountains for more details.

More details?? Getting him to publish such worthwhile stuff would be like talking to a wall.

That book is a perfunctory list of routes.

Comments: Ryan,

I have added data for 2 routes. Help yourself to the Working Traverse route to get above the good potential lines of the east face. The traverse is a little sketchy in that there are many big loose/sitting boulders on the ridge top and good pro is not obvious or easy. I think we took the hangers from the start of the working Traverse, but the bolts [w/nut?] are still on the fins north end. You say "not visible", that is likely as we used dark colored welded cold shuts for this kind of ... more >>

Comments: The route still needs a proper FFA

And this discription lacks the right rating?

How about 5.13, A0 to be consistent with the rest of the tale?

Comments: Jeremy Schaar,

also you state the climb length as 130 ft. Absurd, the Cleveland route lies on the SE face and is perhaps the shortest way to the summit. I'd say from there, 45 feet of climbing with no protection in sight.

Comments: You did not do the Cleveland route, for it lies entirely to the left of the Barber Route. You stated you clipped the Barber bolt.

Comments: From that discussion on Supertopo that Rich Goldstone refers to, “ I think I understand where Dingus is coming from but I'm not going to present his side of the case here” I will present my case not for the sake of another bolt on this pin but in hopes that most climbers understand that my case is built using Henry Barber’s own logic and beliefs about an areas’ sovereignty.

Now Henry was the man to preach about the greatness of Dresden climbing and its rules. He thought it would be great if... more >>

Please find under story 3 some more info about the climbs on the 3 wall. The first 5 climbs are next to each and it is easy to see their features.

Oh yeah. Reese Mt. in the Laramie Range probably has the best sport climbing I have done. Tons of routes and lots of holds on Granite. Can't believe I forgot that one.

Comments: chris Kalous,

thanks for the thoughtful & humorous post, especially the dropped S on Indians Creek.

Perhaps I am 51-49 on what to do with this post but I do like to put up good and reasonable refutations to those that challenge and yet I do write with a tone.

Deleting this post is not just simply the flick of the "delete area" tab. MP will not allow any deletion after anyone else has put up a post to it of any sort. But perhaps this removal could be done through the Utah MP administration.
