Comments: this route was my girlfriend's hardest redpoint to date. i lead it afterwards to clean and it definitely seemed a little awkward, slick and pumpy for an 8. we had two beginners with us that couldn't even pull the opening sequence. for this i'll give it a +. could even be a 9- at parts.

Comments: i wish the chimney were bigger, as it's the funnest part. good route for trad noobs. rope drag is cured with a high first placement. i used a camalot #2. There is however a nosey tree halfway up. and a slightly undesirable traverse to the chains. still worth it.

Comments: ugh. i was thinking about attempting that route on wed. maybe i'll tell my girlfriend to wear gloves. always make it a point to distinguish lead and top rope belaying, especially if it's someone you met in a (gag) gym.

Comments: sweet face climbing on good pockets. It's a breeze until the funky traverse at the third bolt. The crux is a big reach for the vert rail and pulling/smearing to the ledge above it for the fifth clip. the crux move aside, i found this to be a much easier red-point than it's neighbor primal magic.

Comments: the crux move on juggernaut is harder than any move on primal magic...however, pm has bigger initial moves and is slightly more sustained. interesting/misleading crux.

Chossy looking blocks of what looks like clay to the left of the lie-back and crux are bad foot holds! a few of them came off and hit my belayer from 40 ft. no bueno.

Comments: First bolt is hard to clip, as it spins very loosely. Could be suspect to failure in a f2 fall, but I could hang on it pretty safely. Run out at the crux but you can head right towards the crack for easier climbing.

Comments: it's a sandbag. sweet sequence options. small holds. pumpy. sustained, ten plus climbing. totally worth pulling.

Comments: area is definitely not grid-bolted. this route seems stiff at the shield, but totally doable and certainly not contrived. I'd say it's at least 5.8 because of the start and the thin crux. good route. i have no idea what everyone is arguing about.

Comments: climbs like 10b-ish. It's a great lap route, more sustained than witch-hunt with no obvious crux. there are great edges on either side of the chains. you just have to feel them out. (way easier than dog pile in that the holds are all pretty much huge.)

Comments: Neat line. Awkward (but fun) facey start, thin bulging crux, and a cool gaston at the overhang.

Comments: My personal favorite nine in this area. good protection, varied holds, balancy crux moves, challenging route finding, this gets an A+.

Comments: Wow. Never been so sketched out on a 10a corner pull. This route humbles me.

Comments: Sick climb. Good finger crack route for trad-impaired. Thanks for the bolts, I swear I'll buy some more pro next pay check.

Comments: It is very tempting to head right at the top, however, original line is the 10+ "slab" to the left of the giant flake. Crux is the traverse from 10a face (clips 1-3) to a misleading system of slopers (clips 4-6). Sweet lead.

Comments: There is a loose horn about 2/3rds of the way up the flake at the top of the dihedral (is ticked with a X). Use caution if you choose to put weight on it. Otherwise, this is a classic nine dihedral. The crux (direct) is pulling the exposed transfer from good feet (dihedral) over a bulge with a hidden crimp to thin holds. You can also go right to an easier walk up. Great warm-up.

Comments: Jug Haul City!! First pitch is sweet, a pumpy side pull helps the direct line over the roof, or go right for more holds.


Location: CO : Golden : Clear Creek Canyon : Little Eiger : Too! (5.12a)
By: Jon Zucco When: Aug 15, 2008

Comments: Agreed, first pitch of "too" is one of the best on the wall. The crux for me was the exposed pinch on the face (felt balancy but fun). The moves at the top feel D-ish because of the pump, but with the right sequence, any one can pull it.
