Comments: If you don't want to hump up the entire hill to the summit of Mt. Royal...you can always start your day with Royal Flush - makes for more variety!


Location: CO : 10 Mile Canyon : Mount Royal (near Frisco) : Royal Flush (5.9)

Comments: Fun stuff! I climbed Royal Flush for the 2nd time this past weekend (8/23/2015) and couldn't believe how popular this route has become. It was a super fun outing - lots of the lichen on the rock I remember from 2011 seems to be gone, but definitely bring a helmet. Lots of small rockfall all day long with increased traffic on this route!

Mostly moderate climbing from 5.4 to 5.7 down low, but be prepared to be on your hands for the well-protected 5.9 climbing on the headwall.

Comments: The most dramatic video of a V3 you'll probably ever see - what a great little problem though!

Comments: One of my favorite lines in CCC. All clips are solid. The climbing is great! Go do this route, you won't regret it!

Comments: Fun climbing up the arete (my favorite part) to the well-protected roof. Clip a double length runner before the steeps. Find your path through the roof, and enjoy the send. Significantly easier than its 5.11 neighbor.


Location: CO : Boulder : Eldorado Canyon SP : Rincon : Rincon - Center Route & R : Five-Eight Crack (5.8 R)

Comments: I climbed this route on Saturday (4/11/2015), and I thought it was a very straightforward 5.8, but I would not recommend this route to a budding 5.8 leader. I thought the lower moves were a little cruxy, considering the pro was not straightforward, nor did I trust that gear entirely to catch a fall. Once you get about 20' up, I felt all the gear was solid.


Location: CO : CO Ice & Mixed : Hoosier Pass/Lincoln Fall : Scottish Gully (WI3)

Comments: Super fun day @ Lincoln Falls today, certainly not "packed", but there were about 14 cars to hit the lot throughout the day.

I did notice 4 parties rappel the Scottish Gully during peak traffic hours.

I expressed my confusion to a friend who suggested: "Maybe they don't know about the walk-off?"

So. From now on, there is a walk-off to climber's RIGHT. It takes less than 5 minutes! Please do not make the Scottish Gully more than of a "Bowling Alley" than it has to be, especiall... more >>

Comments: Fun little route. I wouldn't recommend this to a 5.7 leader without rock gear to protect the run-out.

Comments: Agree with JPvandever, the knob is waaay better than it looks from the ground.

Easily done in 1 pitch with a 70M.

Comments: Horsetail is in phenomenal shape right now! The first pitch is pretty hacked-out on the far left side (WI3 following the EPR) or solid WI4 on the right. The rest of the route is looking good!

Comments: I agree with Phil L. - this one seemed much more difficult than Hot Stuff - maybe HS fits my style better, but the top of Leftover required much more technique and focus than HS.

Comments: Super fun & adventurous climbing (for single pitch sport). This line has some fantastic moves on some dirty rock - With a little traffic, this route will not disappoint.

Comments: Just gave this a Car-2-Car attempt...wow I have some work to do! So much fun.

Down Climb Beta>>>>

George's info was spot on:
"The downclimb begins on the west-facing cliff directly under the rappel bolts. Follow some big jugs north, straight down and then back south to a 10 foot wide ledge (which you will also pass on the rappel). This starts out vertical and appears unlikely from above to be only 4th class. The ... more >>

Comments: A very intriguing route! I've yet to climb this, but from the ground it appears as it there is a shiny bolt hanger...has a bolt been added to protect this climb?
