Comments: This is still pretty dirty, and it is barely worth doing. There are a few fun moves in the dihedral but not many.

Comments: I don't know how you would blow the clip above the ledge. If you made it this far, you have already done some hard climbing, and you should not blow this clip.

Comments: This is a fun route but is more difficult than it appears from below. It was not as easy as I thought it would be while looking at it. The crux is short though, and I think it is worthwhile.

Comments: I found the kneebar, but my partner did the first crux move without using it, and he climbed it better than I did. This is a good route, but the slab above has some small holds to negotiate.

Comments: This was the most difficult of the three 9s on the face, but I don't think it is a 10. I gave it a 9+ rating. It is safely bolted and fun.

Comments: The holds in the middle of this are "jugs", but the holds at the top and the bottom are small.

Comments: This is a 5.10, but you have to think carefully about the moves before you commit to them. You can get to the top to set up a top rope without climbing the 5.4, but it is easy to climb if you want to.

Comments: This is easier than the hike, but it was harder than 5.4 for me due to wet rock.

Comments: I agree with the 11a rating of this. The hard moves are only in a short section of the climb.

Comments: The crack on this is great! Really fun . The seam is just " ok".

Comments: The person that posted this writes that "the climbing isn't hard..." but, for 10b it felt difficult to me.

Comments: I thought the crack on this was harder than 10b. I thought it was about 11a. My friend placed a #1 Camalot near the top.

Comments: There are bolts above this climb, probably for Rush Hour, and they look safer to reach from above than the Dementia anchors which are at about the same level. I solo down climbed to the anchor, so I know it is possible. The crux on this is difficult but very short.

Comments: I thought I did this climb based on the Mark Rolofson topo, but I may have climbed a short crack even further right. I did not have a dihedral for stemming, but the rating felt about right.

Comments: The move at the bottom is hard and is about a body length long. It does not look like good protection at the crux. I top roped the climb. The rest of the climb is much easier.

Comments: I too think this climb is at least 10a in difficulty. The hard moves are at the bottom and only a body length long. The pro is good at the crux. Starting to the left is possible as Leo Paik mentions.

Comments: Many people mention stemming the crux. I did not stem, and it still felt 5.7 for difficulty. There is good pro the whole way and interesting climbing.

Comments: This crack is not a good climb. There are loose blocks in the crack, and the pro is not good near the bottom. I top roped it. A lead would be scary!

Comments: This is a good climb, but it feels difficult for a 10c. There are no good rests in the upper crack. Be prepared for difficulty.

Comments: This is called "Elegant Pleasure" in the new D'Antonio guide, but it is called "Elegant Peasant" in the Rolofson and Rossiter guides. It takes mostly small cams and nuts for protection.

Comments: It's a little sketchy getting to the bolt anchor on Lips Like Sugar. You can place pro and down climb if you are leading, but following, you are above the anchor as you downclimb to lower off.

Comments: In the Steve Levin guidebook, it shows the route going straight up over the roof following a thin crack. The line drawn in the photo on this site shows the route going to the right of the roof. We went over the roof at the crack, and it felt about 5.5 in difficulty.

Comments: There is a bolt anchor above the chimney on what is described as pitch 2.

Comments: This really is a great route and deserves the four stars given to it in the newest South Platte guidebook. If you are in the area you should do it! I thought the crack went from big to small, it kind of does, so I tried to conserve my gear for when it was really needed. I had 2 #3 Camalots left that I did not place low, and I found places for them up high where the crack is mainly finger-sized.
