Comments: Waaay nice climb. As good as it gets actually. Will definitely go back to this area this weekend as there seems to be a lot of potential for more. Good job Wayne and Kevin!

Comments: You can actually reach behind you midway up this thing and loop a sling around the big tree. One branch actually sticks out close enough. If you fell from the exit moves, a good belayer MIGHT keep you from decking. And yep, very fun and spooky as well.

Comments: First off, VERY nice job, Matt! Eliminating those pesky bolts on a real classic like the Anarchitect is really exciting info to those of us who dig "12dX". With that said, jliening, chopping a sport classic in a mostly sport area on a FULLY sport wall is not a great idea, IMO. There are many more great, scary classics to bother about. Let this one slide bros, and like I said, wayyyyyy nice job you two.

Comments: I got it 2nd try overall, and Wayne got it on his 3rd try overall. I am officially calling the (10+) roof sequence on the 2nd pitch SOLID! 5.11!!!!!! Jeeeez Loouweez, 10+ my ass! Unbelievably good route. Perfect in every way, if you're into this kind of thing.

Comments: For once, I am now upgrading whole sections of a route, both pitches. The 11d on the 1st pitch is not that bad, but the 10+ at the top is heinous. On the second pitch, the 12b/c section didn't seem that bad but I fell on the (10+ c'mon!!!!) roof with bolts in your face. So I took a fall on each pitch, blowing what was to have been glorious flashes. Nevertheless, Roger and Bill Briggs are genius for establishing this route and I can't recommend it enough. Just watch out for the 10+ sections......... more >>

Comments: Anybody know if BASE jumping the Monkey Face is legal in this park? How tall is it exactly as well? Would be great fun on rest days.

Comments: I'm still the dork that ties a knot at the end of a 70 meter rope on a 60 foot sport climb. It's seeming less dorky, as a matter of habit. I'm terribly sorry for those guys shitty road trip. Gotta be cool coming all the way from North Crackalacky to do some Eldo classics, but then a nightmare to end up like this. Any updates on the kids condition?

Comments: I'm calling bullcrap on Rossiter's guidebook saying the end of pitch one is 10c. Almost a number grade harder in my opinion, but you got a bolt at your waist so that's nice. I didn't think the initial crux was as hard as being kinda flamed and slappin the slopes at the top. Really exciting, it's Temporary like Achilles' big mean brother. Thunder and lightning scares hampered efforts on the second pitch. Seems cool so far.

P.S.-no slam on Rossiter personally, I just got hammered at the top of th... more >>

Comments: Yep, I had a riot at Cochiti Mesa over a long weekend back in the early 90's. Touch Monkey seemed a little easy for the grade(just 13a), Izimbra was for sure 13b. 4 or 5 tries, and vert is my angle. If you like Penitente in Colorado, you will freak out on this place.

Comments: You can get a great "Black Alien" (with purple webbing) totally blind from here. If you can't place the gear, ya probably won't be able to do the move anyway. Waaay good like it is right now.

Comments: Uuummmmmm, so. This thing seems really good. Possibly the most heinous string of marginal R.P.s imaginable up a magnificent face. Still needs a little more brushing, it has grown a bit of lichen in key areas since the Matt and Tim repeat era. Gonna be good to go for the Spring though for all interested......; )


Location: CO : Boulder : Eldorado Canyon SP : Rincon : Rincon - L of Center Route : The Evictor (5.12c R)

Comments: Evictor is a great one, no doubt. As far as the best, 5.12, 1 pitch, crack climb in the State goes, it's "Transgression 12b" in the Flatirons. Just do 85% of "Death and Transfiguration" and keep cranking it out to the right, very obvious and pumpy. Transgression is better than the Evictor. IMNSHO........

edit for spelling

Comments: I seem to recall placing the first bolt kinda high, cuz it's cruxy and thin in that section and seemed too hard to clip, sorta. Also, we didn't have access to hammer drills and hangars being sold on the internet for 50cents a piece in 1986. Bolts and hangars were much harder to come by, oh yeah, I was 17 years old when that thing went up........I had stronger knees back then.

Comments: Bobby, maybe it's just my old age, or I didn't figure it out first try. But I thought this thing was kinda 12a. Very good climb though.

Comments: An excellent route that consists of steady difficulty and sneaky rests. Mixes well with its neighboring routes Wild Turkey 12a, Thunderbolts From Hell 12a and Blues Power 12b. A great days worth of fun if you're solid at this level. Kevin and Wayne deserve much respect for putting in these routes and filling in this area with more quality product.

Comments: I'd say that it's no worse than "Homeboy Bonanza" in Clear Creek Canyon. When it still had bolts that is......And a full stick of butter works as well as Astro-Glide, just ask Marlon Brando....

Comments: More like 12a Wayne & Kevin. I haven't led it since the routes bolts were upgraded and finished, but I've heard things. Good things. While it was great fun, in a funnily protected sort of way, I can't wait to see how it rides with all the new gear in place, The best part of this route however (in my opinion) is that it sets the stage for "Kickin Chicken" 12b. Yessiree! I'll comment on that route on that page. Nice one boys.

Comments: Don't look now, but this route is becoming a popular lead. Two ascents in one day, whew! Wayne Crill and I both lead this wild sucker on Sunday the 20th, and speaking for myself, this was a freakin' amazing experience for me in Eldo. Andy Donson is my new hero. I mean, how many of us have rapped off of Kings X and never noticed that there was just enough holds to make something so damn unique, so damn good and soooooo damn scary!!!! 12bX sounds right on to me, and I'm stickin' with my 4 star rat... more >>
