Comments: I had a fun time here this week on a business trip. Climbed with a couple cool locals (thanks Craig and Brian). Couple comments

re the anchors
Whats with the anchors at this place? The fact that you cant just lower off and move to another climb (without leaving something) is an inconvenience. But of the 4 climbs i got on here; 2 had anchor bolts placed that forced a cross-loaded biner over a bump/edge when the slings where set for lowering (or tr). One of those had been noted as h... more >>

Comments: Super fun!! Looks harder from below but holds keep appearing. Finishing right of the last bolt as I did may be a bit harder than going left to the flake on left route

Comments: Fun route but got on this as my first route here hoping for a warm up (guide said easy climbing to hard move up top - 10c...) NOT 10c but still good

Comments: I've not been on it, but Scott S. called it 11d.

EDIT: I just went to the main page and saw this comment from Scott
"In 2002, I bolted the black streak on right side, .11+/.12-"

Comments: The Oxbow Parcel on which Cat Slab sits is still in the planning stages from what I can tell. I found this link to a public meeting announcement for the site plan.

There are still two meetings to go if anybody is interested....

Comments: GEAR ALERT: The hanger on the 4th bolt is bent/flattened. Not sure if someone fell on it when it was twisted, but in its current condition it is hard to clip and its strength/integrity may be compromised....

Comments: Gotta go with Lee here. The anchors shown here are specifically designed to be lowered off of - not rappeled from. Why else do you think there is a gate on the top? As Lee notes, if they wear super quickly due to traffic, consider other anchors (i.e. quicklinks/chain).

Also, considering Lee signed his comment "from safercliffs.org" - a little research shows that "Safer Cliffs Australia is a non-profit voluntary organization of climbers who maintain the safety of rock climbing areas ... more >>

Comments: 1) what are the chances the campgrounds will be fully booked on Friday eve around 8pm?
2) is there water available?
3) is it still 4$ a night?
4) picnic tables at the sites?

1 - if it was like last weekend there were only a couple of sites still available by 9pm (granted last weekend was the busiest i've seen in years) you should have a decent chance...
2 - No, bring your own
3 - Yes, for now...
4 - Yes

Other tips... bring your own wood unless you don't mind walking a ways to gather dead wood... more >>

Comments: It's not officially open yet. Read here (Pete Helseth's comment)

Until Clear Creek County Open Space gives the OK, it would probably be best to not climb here.

Comments: Looks awesome! The ice approach looks nice as well - just how cold is it up there though this time of year?

Comments: Jacob

Why don't you ask the FA'ists? Darryl posts on this site and while Bob D no longer does, he is reachable through the forums over on Supertopo.... I'm unsure if this route was rap bolted - a lot of the older Shelf routes were put up ground up using hooks/gear - again I'm unsure in this case.... But I AM sure that it's not good to be adding bolts to routes without the FA's approval. Especially when 2 of the 3 are still very active in the area. Replacing bad bolts is one thing - adding n... more >>

Comments: Super fun! Hard through the first 3 bolts - eases up considerably up top (no harder than 5.9) but the bolt spacing keeps it very interesting....

Comments: Bjorn is right about the ticks. I'd avoid this area (and any other in Clear Creek that involves bushwacking) in the spring and early summer but late summer on is fine. I was back & forth on this trail many times while Darren and I were working on Big Bros Watching and never saw a tick.

Comments: I'll start by stating that this is a route that I have no desire to lead.... However, in regards to Scott's question about adding a pin I'd say no - it would cross the ethical boundary. Placing and removing the pin (which you would have to do to consider it a removable piece) could/would damage the rock. Leaving it fixed would change the route, even if the pin ends up being just psychological pro (in which case, getting in a better mindset before leading would be just as good). Sounds like a ... more >>

Comments: Hey Ryan - glad you & Dave enjoyed the route!! You seem to confirm my belief about how exposure affects my ratings - but I'm fine with that! :)
Mostly just like hearing how you think it is a great route. As I'm sure you know, that matters way more than ratings! Thanks
