Comments: Not sure we figured out exactly there this line goes. It only took 7-8 draws, but the book says it's 10 or 11, and it doesn't share the same bolts as "No Passion...."

Comments: I would give this climb 3 starts if it weren't for the rotten rock at the 2nd-4th clips. Careful, but the upper section is great and a little sustained.

Comments: Only 1 fixed nut now, and it's pretty good, though you can back it up if you wish. Pin below the nut looks good, too.

Comments: If you climb at the grade or even just below, get on it. Fun climb.

Comments: I think there are better routes on this wall. The bottom had some great movement, but top was a bit tricky. How this rock is still being held together is a mystery to me.

Comments: Great route. Maybe the best on the wall. I don't think it's 11b except maybe for the top, but a ton of feet will help keep the pump away.

Comments: Wahoo! What a great climb. Always wanted to get on this thing and climb Touch N Go. Did both and they were fun. A little run out on P3 but I was able to find ample gear. The crux pitch isn't Eldo 5.9- if you find the knee bar beta.

Comments: Dirt road closure:

Scroll down to the Laramie Ranger Dist. Info.

It appears all dirt roads are not closed to climbing and camping, just a few of them.

Comments: I took this climb bat the slung tree and through the dirty dihedral which was actually a little scary but about 5.8. I think it's worth the adventure.

Comments: Fun little climb you can read from the ground. Would get more stars if it was longer, but great for any 5.11 climber looking to get into Rifle roofs but is intimidated of a long route.

Comments: Check to see if this route has draws to the top or just the lip. You may need to bring three extra draws with you. Typically the first 4-5 bolts are fixed. Will need one draw for the first bolt or stick clip the second.

Comments: Mike, there is a registry at this cliff. Do you know who runs this? I wonder if they would allow some educational info to live in there to help prevent this.

Comments: I was at Little Eiger yesterday, and I must say I was quite disappointed with the way some people have been treating this crag. On the far right side about 2-3 feet off the trail, I encountered some items on the trail left behind that I don't care to mention. When you have to go, go, but at least do it far from the cliff, off the trail and dig a cat hole or carry a bag, because there isn't enough space for everyone to dig a hole anyways. I was shocked to see how much trash was left behind. P... more >>

Comments: The bolts on this route are still in fine working order. Great route and a must do in climbing in the area.

Comments: Best to downclimb and lower off the last bolt before the chains or rap off when cleaning the route. It's a little sharp, and there is some rope drag at the top.

Comments: Sandy, Yes! Some choss, Yes! Fun, YES! Great route. In January 2013, two bolts were added, and some cleanup to the rock took place. Should climb better than what you hear from the last comments. Pulling the roof was the crux but way fun.

Comments: I felt like the cracks were great for jamming when a plant was not in your way. The crux was really avoiding the foliage and the large chunks of hollow rock that could fall onto your belayer at any time if pulled on too hard. Other than that, really great area to climb.
