Comments: I like the varied nature of this route. It climbs better than it looks and progressively gets more difficult as you climb it.

Comments: So, what do you think about chipping on road cut. Chipping is bad but on road cut... I do think that it does set a bad example as Tony Bubb said (the kids from Ned thinking that chipping is standard practice). That is my opinion. What is everybody else's? Is this a grey area?

As far as the sport bashing goes... It is like Harley riders bashing jap bikes. The guys who ride the rice burners and BMW's Ducati's are generally nicer that the wantabe tough guy, lawyers and bankers that get their firs... more >>

Comments: So if you enjoy sport climbs, why are you on my ass for defending them? By the way, everybody has the right to do what they want for fun without ridicule as long as it does not hurt anyone else. I have yet to here sport climbers bashing trads for climbing trad, but here a lot of trads fro bashing sport climbers. Why is that and is [there] any real point to it? And if so what is that point?

AC, did I say anyone should be afraid of anything? I am only trying to explain why sport climbing is not ... more >>

Comments: Nice try ... Wide Country has a bolt on it. So... Rick, clip-ups = sport. ... I will explain. I use to do nothing but trad, almost every day of the week. Mostly I learned on trad. Now I do sport mostly, with only a few trad climbs a year and I still can get up .11- on gear (use to onsight mid to upper .11's). So I think that I have the right to do clip-ups ... That is my point.

Comments: AC, You made me laugh out loud. I hope you find this as fun as I do.

Seriously though, You [ought to] be careful, callin a whole [community] of a bunch of [losers.] Where I come from ([Kansas]), that can get you in a whole lot of trouble. Nobody here ever put down tradsters. But, a lot of tradsters put down the sporties. Now it is all about having fun and nobody infringes on anybody else (unless you are looking to be infringed upon).

I used to do nothing but trad (did the [Naked Edge] 3 times... more >>

Comments: I have never respected someone just because they were a climber. It is not like climbing is a contribution to humanity. Climbing by it's very nature is very selfish and egomaniacal, not at all altruistic.

How does my climbing "road cut" affect your fun.

AC, sorry you're hurt by the fact that you and your ideas are irrelevent to so many of us (not really). In fact, it makes the whole thing more fun. Heh heh heh...

Comments: Hey AC, Most of us climb for ourselves and not for those POS's that think that they are better just because they climb a certain style. I, for one, don't care what anyone else thinks about what or how I climb. I make a point to have fun and that is all.

Does Justins' comments make you feel irrelevent? Does the fact that his comments state that he does not care what you or anyone else thinks hurt your feelings. Your post sounds like it...

Comments: How about when we are climbing on the routes with no chipped holds? Is that not rock climbing?

It should be noted that not all, in fact most of the routes are not chipped.

Four routes on the [Clock Tower] are chipped (this roof was created in the early 1900s when the [aqueduct] was built).

The Owl Prow is has one two chipped routes (this area was created when a tunnel was blasted through the rock for the [aqueduct]).

Check out the Surprising Crag area.

Comments: To me, the grade is just an approximation. It lets me know if I should stay away or get on it. Some days everything feels easy and some days I have to work a "red point" on the trail to the climbs. Depends on everything.

Comments: Got a question... if, on the 4th pitch, one goes right along the flake instead of heading into the bombay chimney, what is that rated (I THINK it is the original aid line). It has been a while since I have done it but recall it was pretty tenious.

Great climb and I've got to get back on it soon!!!

Comments: Is it wrong to chip on road cut? Much of this area is the result of the building of the [aqueduct] that supplies water to the republic of [Boulder]. I don't agree with chipping...but what is the difference if it is all ready man made? I know that the example is it sets is bad. By the way I would like to thank ALL those who put up routes. I know tha it is a lot of work and is not cheap. THANKS!
