Comments: I believe I left my CU belay specs at this crag two weeks ago (Sat, Nov 8). They are likely at the base of Malt Liquor Man. If you come across them please let me know. Thanks.

Comments: Does anyone have info on the routes not listed either here or in the guidebook?

  • Between Rain and Queer. Climbs right facing corner to face. Large hole down low. May not have proper anchors.
  • Between Queer and Malt Liquor Man. Listed as the Open Project in Squeezing The Lemmon II. Cold shuts.
  • Between Malt Liquor Man and Too Steep For You Know Who. Climbs dihedral to shared anchors.
  • Tag Team is listed without a rating in the gu...

Comments: The "Alpine Climbing" checkbox was toggled on the Gargoyle Wall. It is no longer toggled and will hopefully filter down to the climbs shortly. Good catch!

Comments: Should this crag be named 'Rivendell' as opposed to 'Rivendale'?

Comments: The layout of this crag is a bit of mystery at the moment. Any insight would be appreciated. A few observations:

  • An unlisted sport or mixed route is at the toe of the crag.
  • There is a trad route with visible anchors immediately uphill.

Comments: First round; first minute. This climb is relentless crimps from the dyno start until the forth bolt. To overcome I precisely mapped where to place my index fingers on multiple holds. Zombie Flanders is painful, short, and unforgiving yet kind-of awesome in a sadistic sense.

This line felt significantly harder than neighboring routes of the same grade such as Knights of the Wrong Tissue, Gneiss Boys, and Squeezing The Lemmon.

Comments: As is becoming my style, I left two quickdraws and two alphine draws on this route 9/27/2014. Unfortunately I have not returned and likely will not until next season. Feel free to use them but be sure to pay attention to their condition. Feel even freer to return them. Thanks and sorry.

Comments: Another slice please! A wonderfully challenging route with great movement on interesting features. While the broken nature of the climbing might keep some away, each layer has enough action that I was thankful for intermissions.

Caution is suggested at the top of the second layer. Three feet to the right of the 7th bolt and likely off route is a massive, head-sized, horn-like rock. I believe it is entirely fractured and flexes when touched. I personally did not try to remove it due to my b... more >>

Comments: Thanks for the thought provoking feedback. I avoid the back wall on Limestone Cowgirl but use it on Swiss Miss. To call one feature on while calling the other off is hypocritical and arbitrary. I suppose it is up to the individual how to approach each route.

I reverted the established grade to 5.12a.

Comments: Downgraded to the established grade of 11a as not using all available features just seems silly.

Comments: It has been two years but that sounds right. I recall a high crux that involves tenuous moves to the left of the bolts. I don't remember the specific sequence; just a vague recollection.

  • Variations are welcome to be posted. In general if the submitter deems the route worthy, then it will stay. Garbage, troll, or joke submissions shall be deleted regardless of whether or not they are variations.
  • Variations will be denoted by appending [Var] to the route name. I believe this will assist users in orien...

Comments: By rename I meant prefixing or appending something like "[Var]". I was not suggesting that the route's given name be altered.

Comments: On Mountain Project, which essentially has infinite space, I personally see no issue with posting variations. Give climbers and users options and let them decide their worth.

That said not all variations are created equal and there is a spectrum of opinions on what makes a notable variation. I would contend that a significantly harder (for the crag or region) or more aesthetically pleasing line is worth noting. There are few such lines in my opinion.

The Orifice Wall is regionally unique in... more >>

Comments: An interesting but inconsistent line. The first 3 bolts are powerful, sustained, and technical. The crux sequence is a unique undercling to cross-through crimp with a drop-knee. Unfortunately the route finishes with a whimper as opposed to a whipper. The last two bolts try to force the climber onto harder territory but the features to the right are the natural line.

5 bolts to chains. Some may opt to stick clip the first bolt.

Comments: A fantastic line on great stone that isn't over until the chains. This route is sustained with varied movement: crimps, side pulls, jugs, a finger lock, and an undercling. I especially enjoyed deciphering foot sequences and rests.

7 bolts to chains. While it isn't critical extending the third draw straightens the line.
