Location: CO : South Platte : Devil's Head : The Starcastle : To The Fire Wind (5.11d)

Comments: Fun route, definitely worth doing if you're in the area. Like all routes in this area, a little soft for the grade.

Comments: 11a might be a bit stiff...perhaps the route has cleaned up a little bit, but the rock is pretty good and the bolts quite close. I did break one foot chip, and the rock is a little friable but not enough to distract from the quality of the route.

Comments: nice picture, Joe.

I haven't sent this, but it has to be one of the Milford classics like Bloodsport ie one that would be a classic anywhere... probably much closer to an 8 than 7.

Comments: From the first Retaliation anchor due you need any gear? or is it all bolts from there?

Comments: The third pitch is now clean and worthwhile. If doing so link the first pitch with the short 5.8 pitch to avoid the hanging belay. To do this you will need ~20 draws or you can skip/back clean a few bolts.

Comments: Has this been cleaned recently?

When I lived there I never saw anyone on it and it was always dirty. Never heard of anyone doing it either, though I'm not suggesting it hasn't been repeated. Can anyone comment on the grade? I always thought this had a very high probability of being a classic index sandbag given the FA party.

Comments: This might be my favorite 12a at Rumney so far. Still I can only give it 3 stars because the its neighbor the Crusher is so much better despite being much easier too

Comments: There is also an entry for Ed's Weed be Gone in the every square inch wall section...I think the shield wall is the correct location for the route. Having two entries is redundant though, moderator?

Comments: Pin is still there, but not really necessary as the horizontal cracks up there take small cams.

Comments: I guess not everybody agrees with me, but I thought this was really good and would be a classic at almost any area. Could almost call it a highball.

Comments: I know this gets a lot of stars in the guidebook. I just think there are a lot of much better problems at pway. The crux isn't really that fun, awkward left hand stab around a corner and the rock is pretty poor by pway standards. It is tall and aesthetic but that isn't enough for me.


Location: NY : The Gunks : The Trapps : h. The Arrow Wall - CCK : Feast of Fools (5.10b)

Comments: I thought this was one of the better protected 5.10's at the gunks I have done. I did put a screamer on one of the pins, but even if those blew the #3 camalot just below would catch you after a big but clean fall.

Comments: I believe this problem is called The Compactor, and it is on the Trash Can Boulder. See the videos in the comments on the Ayer main page.

Comments: very good problem, definitely worth doing, don't think the difficult is in line with other problems of that grade

Comments: I was told the second pitch was 10b and felt okay with that in comparison to the grading of the other pitches on the route. The first pitch isn't easy but index 10c seems about right. I don't think it is as hard as slow children.

Comments: The town of north bend is 5 minutes away. The area is about 40 minutes west of Seattle on I-90. The rock is volcanic, I have heard it called rhino rock. It is a little slick but surprisingly fun to climb on. Not a destination crag but certainly worth a trip if you are in the Seattle area. Most of the routes where put up in the 90's though there was climbing earlier. Some newer harder routes have gone up recently, mostly by Ben Gilkison I'm sure there are a few others, too. There are some a... more >>

Comments: Agreed, the mantle is scary but not hard. If the moves up to the lip are only v4 then the problem is only v4...I found them a little harder then that.

Comments: no, just don't like crumbly rock and poor dynamic 1 move wonders. Of all the 5.11 routes I have done at index this is EASILY the worst one. Terminal preppie just to the left for example has no crumby rock and excellent movement. That is a four star route....

Comments: great route and only scary by 'Rumney' standards, could also be considered well protected and safe
