Comments: I noticed a bunch of pink tick marks all over this route the other day. Please don't use colored chalk to tick every hand hold and foot hold and not bother to brush them off after you've finished. The crux sequence isn't even very long on this climb. If you can't do 10ft of climbing without having every hand hold a foot hold ticked with colored chalk, then you really need to get out of the gym more often. I did my best to brush them off, but it definitely leaves a noticeable pink smear on the ro... more >>

Comments: I'm planning a trip for 4/4 thru 4/18 of this year. I was just wondering if anyone had any comments on the weather/temps that time of year.

Comments: A right hand side pull below bolt #2 is about to rip off. We put a giant X on it. At first it feels solid, but as you move higher and pull out on it more it starts to make horrible noises. Most people use it as a foot moving into the crux, so be careful especially so low on the route. You can clip #2 from a low stance if you sneak left to a horn for your left hand and stem your feet up.

Comments: I have to disagree with the description which states that you climb exclusively on micro thin edges. I can only think of one maybe two holds that qualify. The upper crux has some small holds that you can't skip but the feet are good at that point. The rest of the beta came together in a manner that did not require pulling on small holds. They were there. I just didn't have to use them. This route was a classic power endurance route for me with four decent jug holds to recover on. This is one of... more >>

Comments: Yes, you could get snowed on in March. It's probably not a huge risk, but it is spring time and weather patterns are shifting. Some of our largest storms on the Front Range happen in March and April. I wouldn't say not to go, but I also might not drive all the way from Indiana with a small window of days to climb. If you came out for a week, it would be worth it. If you came out for five days, it could be worth it. If you came out for three days, you might get shut down with a freak storm, but c... more >>

Comments: Don't grab it to hard! Agreed, it's amazing. I always try to describe this hold to people and fail miserably.

Comments: In the video, he jumps into the undercling off the ground. I was just wondering what the beta was for the start. It just feels super hard for me to make that first move with both feet and hands on the rock.

Comments: Is anyone doing this one starting seated to the left? There is a big jug to start off of. Then I go with my left hand into a good undercling and work my way right into the dihedral. I was there solo and thought this was the line, but it felt harder than V2.

Comments: I cleaned your draws off these anchors yesterday. If you left them there deliberately, I'm sorry I removed them. If you forgot them I will do my best to get them back to you. Pm me with a description of the draws, and I will make sure you get them back.

thanks
