Comments: The official regulation is that you can only boulder or rock climb in designated areas, and Horsetooth Rock is not a designated area.

Link to Larimer Parks areas where rock climbing is allowed.
larimer.org/olmasterplan/ch4_%...

Note that the bouldering is Horsetooth Reservoir County Park and the rock is Horsetooth Mountain Open Space.

Comments: There is a problem that starts with the sit down to Big Block then goes left to the arete and up the arete. It is fantastic, and I think it deserves classic status, but I don't know the name. If you are looking for a new problem at Carter, this is one to try.

Edit: I am told that it is called Face Wipe.

Comments: I combined the last pitch of Buried Treasure with the last pitch of Staying Alive, which resulted in much rope drag. However, this does make for a long and enjoyable pitch, just make sure you have several long runners and consider back cleaning or skipping some bolts.

Comments: The first pitch is great. There is a flake at the end of the harder climbing that is loose and will probably break in the near future. It is a great hold and is obviously used by many, so I wanted to give a heads up. It can be avoided by underclingling instead. The second pitch is not worth the effort.

Comments: This problem broke once again some time during the summer of 2014. The new break is the crimp at the second crux right next to the old break. This sequence has gotten much harder and will make the already pumpy problem that much more so. I was able to work out new beta but did not put it all together yet, so I am not sure if a grade change is appropriate. Since it is getting V8- consistently, and I am sure that it is not going to be V9, I would say V8 would be in the right ballpark.

Comments: After finishing the crux on a sidepull that one wishes was just a little better, you are rewarded with some great face climbing to finish. Great addition to the area.

Comments: There are two sections of poor rock quality on this climb. One right before the crux (I broke a hold and took a ride) and one right after the crux.

Comments: Great climb with great movement and intelligently bolted. So far, my favorite at the crag.

Comments: A fun route with a very thin crux. Bring your edging shoes. I found this harder than some of the other 10a-10c's on the wall but just for the one very well-protected move.

Comments: Finger Ripper is to the right and is an eliminate. You cannot use the crack and have to go up the face on tiny crimps and sidepulls. You can see the chalked holds in the picture: the two chalked sidepulls to the right of the climber and the two chalked crimps below and in between the chalked sidepulls. Basically the face between the climber in the photo and the crack to the right.

Comments: The "dirt fall" would be considered second class. Fourth class is when people start to rope up.

Comments: I always clipped the bolt at the crux with a single locker. Not a hard clip, but helps to keep you off the ledge.

I also did the first ascent.

Comments: This one has some history. It was first climbed with two bolts and a slung tree by Ken Duncan. Brian Hopkins and I re-discovered it and got permission to add more bolts. Note that many of the holds broke when we first checked out the line, which made it much harder than it was originally. All the thin holds after the ledge were incut at one time.

Every effort was made to reuse the old bolt holes, and that is why the clip is so far off the midway ledge. One of the old bolts was removed by hand,... more >>

Comments: Isn't this route already in the database as "Harry Butthole Pussy Potter"? Not the most PC name, so I don't know if it has been changed in the new guides, but I think it is the same climb.

Comments: Lots of very thin holds that don't look permanent. Also there is some very large and very loose blocks at the start of the upper dihedral. While the climbing is fun (not great), the rock quality takes away from the overall quality of the route.

Comments: Bottom is harder than it looks, and the route is more sustained than it at first appears. The crux is a little tricky, but very good stances before and after that makes for a great 5.12 project.

Comments: Broke a hold at the start of the upper crux today. It still goes but is a little harder.
