Comments: Boulders in the second large boulder field left of the diamond.Head down the path from the metal fire ring to the creek. Cross the creek on boulders, head left into the boulder field, look for the tall steep arete. Many potential problems starting at the crossing, along the creek, and up over the ridge in the bowl. Lots of stuff has been cleaned, some of it has been climbed or are projects.

Comments: Access is sensitive. DO NOT circumvent the river crossing to make access easier. The owner has released his dogs to shake up people who walk bordering their property next to the river. Just bushwack and wade across.

Location: CO : Grand Junction area : Unaweep Canyon : Nine Mile Hill : East Creek Day Use Area : Rockshop Traverse (V7)
By: Jared LaVacque When: Apr 27, 2013

view comment >>
Comments: When featured in Rock and Ice years ago in an article by Luke Laeser and Ed Strang, this was rated V7. It actually starts left to right, as far left as possible butt dragging, at the top of a small dirt dune. The first moves are the hardest with smaller holds. If these are cut off and started farther left, the grade becomes easier. Then, their is a V3ish move transitioning from a higher traverse, to a lower section, then a pumpy transition V3-V4 before hitting the roof...then just hold on until ... more >>

Comments: Not V10, much easier, probably V8. Climbs well, like a hip-hop purist, versus climbing like those who like ring-tone rap.

Comments: Though a lot of this rock is friable, LDY established a really solid (for the grade and rock quality), though hard to find, V10 called The Wormhole and a project that I came close to sending last time back in town that is approximately V11/12 (solid in both aspects as well). There are a few other easier problems that are great as well. Caleb is right, though, there are a lot of friable holds on the majority of the boulders.

Location: AK : Kenai Peninsula : Skilak Lake

Comments: There is no other information on Skilak. Ben Schmidt, who put up 7 Felonies, might have bolted other routes, but they are not posted. It is not in The Alaska Rock Climbing Guide. I would recommend a small boat to explore Skilak, as it is a very large lake. I would also recommend going to Anchor Point and bouldering. It is about 70 miles from Soldotna. It is a single tall glacial erratic boulder by a river.

Comments: Sorry, Caleb...misinterpreted your comment. Next time I'm back home, we should boulder:) You, me, and others have all spent time putting up some great lines in Junction. I think, that we both assume I got the 2nd of Peregrinus and Corner Cafe too...both great lines. Cheers!

Comments: If you actually drop down from the final seam jug, to an undercling (with the right, on the underbelly, and then drop left hand to the side-pull crimp)...a really nice transition, then start the overhang/prow with the lowest matching shelf jug, and continue with the jug pocket with the right and up the prow with the left and finish with an easy dyno/static move, then the rating is about V3...hence my rating on the "ticks". If not, it about V2-, in my opinion. It's a bit descript, but it seemed t... more >>

Comments: Thanks for the description, Nathan. I hadn't sent Chick Power since the early 2000-2002-ish time frame after Ric took me to Ute for the first time. The next time I went back, after moving from CO, was 2008, and I just remembered the match hold being a little more positive. Nice video btw.

Comments: Let me clarify this. SDS with your bum on the ground, right hand on the crimp, left on the sloper. Right foot on the right roof-lip, left on the left side roof-lip, move left hand to the positive sloper, bump right hand to the side-pull, set feet and fire to the lip, or intermediate left hand on the arete.

Comments: Start on jug, set feet high, ignore drawing/CH and move high right hand to gaston, follow left hand into undercling/pinch, and then campus the rest.

Comments: Following the drawing is misleading as it suggests the right side of the arete is off, which it is not. The route Petoria, is a bit more accurate.

Comments: If you actually follow the drawing, you start on the jug, gaston a pocket, and the bump high and left to a nice sidepull jug, then lunge to the crimp/sloper or intermediate off of a triangle pinch and static the crimp/sloper.

Comments: Highball is a perception. And if your vision is this skewed, in the pics with me in the red shirt, I must be really short...but I'm not, I'm 6 foot tall, with a +6 ape index.

Comments: Sounds like a cocky FA artist got a bit mad that someone flashed it...that being me. Too bad mature folks like LDY and myself don't flip when people flash their lines. I don't remember LDY downgrading Mono Pocket Rocket when I flashed that too. Why don't you go over to the arena and get your REAL crank on...hope your DD mentality is ready, Caleb.

Comments: Nice photogenic line, from beneath the cave. Scope the dyno hold before committing. The correct hold is not the obvious one.

Comments: When sent, this will be approximately V7/8, as an estimate. The patina is really friable and needs cleaning...otherwise plan on falling a lot and splitting tips. If the weather holds, I plan on cleaning/sending it. A nice divergence from the Delusions of Grandeur (highly recommended).
