Comments: That is a great shot, particularly difficult with a "butt" shot.

Comments: That's fast action! Chip was pointing that route out to me, and it seemed almost like the next day you guys did it. Ya Big Studs!

Comments: I did this,finally,about '95, with my wife.A lot of folks here may be unaware that Fantasia is the route that Royal Robbins writes about in the last chapter of Advanced Rockcraft.All the time on that first pitch,the memory of the terror he described in finessing that slab section was playing in my memory.Many years earlier,I did Roofer Madness with none other than John Rosholt.I think his main motive was because of the name,but for me, as a CO climber,that was a stella... more >>

Comments: My wife and I climbed there in '90-'91. We had a running joke, whatever she climbed for like a year after this route was "just like Group Therapy",totally classic!

Comments: I guess we thought it was maybe 10- the first time. Then we all promptly soloed it, with the rope still on the Mr. N. tree for the rap. Later, when I 3rd classed it again, I found that the real business was getting back down.

Comments: Did this yesterday; thought the moves at the last bolt were way stout for .11c. Nice line, but I have to wonder if I was missing something.

Comments: Did this route today - anchors are good, and don't detract from the trad character of the pitch.

Comments: .11d? Hardest one in Boulder Canyon. There's a scar where a flake pulled off. I wonder if that made a difference; I couldn't pull the move, felt harder than .12b.

Comments: It has been a while since anyone commented on this; but...the pin was placed around '85 or '86 by Charlie Fowler to replace the Gerry Death Hanger that was there. I think at this point a real bolt is probably in order.

Comments: Wow! What a memory! We lived at Lake Tahoe when my daughter was born, Phantom Spires was her first climbing trip; I did this route while she napped in her baby seat. Thanks for the pic...

Comments: I remember doing Ariel in '84, scared shitless. Years later I lived in Zephyr Cove and climbed it again with my wife, noticing that it had about twice as many bolts...much more fun that way.

Comments: Sure doesn't look like Rosholt to me...curly hair, bright colors, chalk bag...did John ever use chalk? I don't know, maybe he was having some kind of phase.

Comments: That's great! I was working on the route with my wife belaying, as we heard those guys coming down the canyon. It was the week before the first Snowbird competition. Bob asked me (politely) to get the hell out of the way so Patrick could do the route. Bob fixed the draws (while Patrick looked the other way), and then Patrick proceeded to crush the route mercilessly; however, he forgot a sling to hang and thread- no problem, he downclimbed with as much grace and power, calmly collecting... more >>

Comments: Although it has been a few decades since Elephant Rocks was my main area, I have to agree with Joes' assertion as to the fastest route. It's nice to reminisce about the 70's when we would drive down from St.Louis before dawn, drop some 'cid and boulder at dawn...Good Times!

Comments: Referring to my first comment: I led this (gardening on lead) long ago. The name is Karen O's Sweatpants, after a girl who looked real good in same, (dark blue). Don't ask me to go to the trouble of changing the name.
