Comments: This is a perfect example of a route with totally crap aesthetics but extremely fun movement. I would have never thought a climb like that was hiding on that kind of junky looking wall. I agree that the final optional gear is not necessary but it made me feel a lot better placing it because I probably would have fallen 30 feet (clean) otherwise had I not placed it and screwed up the final moves.

Comments: I spoke with one of the first acensionists last summer, and he assured me that while bolts have been replaced, they are in the same place that they were on the F.A. The route is safe but a bit spicy, and while runout on the upper easy slab if you can do the lower part it should be safe enough.

Comments: Please see the photo I just attached to the main page. Match this to a view on Google Maps if necessary. The boulders are easily visible from the main road if you look up at the right time.

Comments: Does anyone know what this problem is? It is possibly the same one described in the above comment. This problem is located to the right when looking at The Good V3, at the base of a long low-angle slab and near the edge of some dense forest. Is this Cavebound Squirrel?
Cool looking compression problem on the north edge of The Garden.  Starts with opposing good holds, and has good right hand holds and abysmal slopers for the left, and a hard-looking topout.  Anyone know the name and grade?

Comments: Those holds are there, just lower than the big undercling by a few moves. They are reachable if you are sitting on the ground. While I haven't sent yet, this version feels like a hard V7 to me. Hopefully I'll get back there soon to finish it and get some pictures of the start.

Comments: This seems to be pretty much the same problem I posted as Chamberlin Rock East Arete a few years ago. Not that it really matters. Its cool that people are climbing this still, and its cool that there is real bouldering right on campus.

Comments: Getting off of the ground was quite possibly the hardest individual move of the whole route for me, but it goes.

BETA ALERT: My method was to get two small crimps around head height, and a crotch-splitting high step with the right foot on the obvious flat hold, pull statically off the ground onto that, and stab up right to a good hold. This move was low-percentage, but since it's the first move falling off of it isn't nearly as heartbreaking as falling off up higher.

Comments: This may be because I want to have sent this, but I think that the blocks are on as long as you only use the ones that are truly left of the crack, and not the ones that are actually sticking out of the alcove. Since the blocks are really just a higher part of the starting ledge, eliminating them seems kind of arbitrary, especially since you need to use foot chips only a few inches above them. Thoughts?

Comments: I broke the start crimp off of this route earlier this week, didn't even notice it was gone until the next attempt. In its place is now a slightly smaller and less positive crimp, but it still goes and it is still possible to start statically off the ground. I don't think this changes the overall grade of the route, which is a really stiff 5.12a by Red Wing standards.

Comments: To my eternal regret I was standing right next to Rhoads at that moment taking video, and my memory card filled up just as he entered the crux sequence, preventing me from catching video of the epic whipper.

Comments: I was unsure about whether the route moved left or right after the second bolt. I got shut down trying to move left and avoid all holds on Kelly's Arete. Is it allowed to use that flake that you use on Kelly's as an undercling before the crux and the other good holds around it (not the arete, obviously), or even the good pocket at the extreme top of the attached picture? Without them I feel like the crux comes after the second bolt for sure.

Comments: Does this start on the bulge that you do the drop down move of Cave Traverse on to? If so, are the start holds the same holds that most people have their hands on just after the drop down move of Cave Traverse, or am I completely wrong?

Comments: Ah but the mantle on Gargantua is super fun! Or maybe I just like mantles. Ditto on the finish though, I came very close to flubbing the exit mantle while leading Gargantua and almost took a very exciting head over heals fall. Both routes are great though, and I've still got to get back and lead Tarantula.

Comments: How about east/west of the CCC trail for starters? The boulders from the Zipper east to Fat Pants including the stuff around the Guillotine seem to be a fairly tight group, and could be made as such. Similarly, I'd put Slab of Doom, Rampart Roof, and other problems in the talus below the cliffline and west of the CCC trail in their own group. I'm not sure what I'd do with stuff like Rail Gun or ObZen that are a little further down, it frankly seems hard to call this East Rampart. Maybe an al... more >>

Comments: I'm going to have to agree with Alex on this being quite a bit harder than 5.12a, at least the way I did it (or did I do "Pooper varition, 5.12c/d"). I started as for Pooper and went straight up instead of doing the thin traverse right you do on Pooper. I went pretty much straight up from there and finished about 4-5 feet left of the chimney on the ledge level with and only a few inches right of the mini-roof under the summit block. I felt like the crux was the absolute last move to the top.
