Comments: Actually, they are on The Rosy-Toit which breaks left from the top of P2 of Le Toit (i.e., where the belayer in the photo is standing) and joins Rosy Cruxifiction.

Comments: James,

Beautiful. Thanks for sharing this gem. What's the original size on this pre upload to MP? Would love to use it as a wall paper for a dual screen.

Comments: Maybe an elephant is being herded past the belayer who is now on the river wall.

Really dig the swami, Bob! That must have been the primo model you have on there - two inch multi wrap. A few "takes" on that rig and you have a weeks worth of ab work outs.

Comments: Looks like Wayne being belayed by Kevin on Kickin' Chicken which starts on Wild Turkey then veers left half way up.

Comments: I'm a bit perplexed why this was bolted. Having an anchor at the top is very convenient, but the other two bolts are not needed. With a SR and a #4 Camalot it's as safe as it gets.

Comments: Note, currently, there is no fixed pin protecting the crux second pitch finger crack/roof. A mix of small cams and nuts works nicely. The R rating is unwarranted as there is just enough modern gear to keep things under control.

Comments: Bob,

Thank you for posting these historical shots. Great stuff! All these photos show tremendous fitness and poise - a hallmark of hard climbing regardless of the era.

Comments: Brad Bond and I talked and the consensus is that Brad and his partner probably did the FA about ten years ago onsight. Congrats! I spent about an hour scrubbing the slab on my lead so it's cleaned up a good bit.

Comments: After the crack tapers into a left-facing corner in a sloping dish feature and the climbing eases way up climb up another 10' feet and set a bely on a nice ledge that is a bit jagged in spots. Save a gold and red Camalot for the belay. Pitch two is fairly dirty and probably gets done once every five years or so. I was scared considering this was only 5.9 climbing. I wonder where Kenny took the plunge from?

Are the free grades in the topo currently accurate?

Comments: Short and sweet. I highly commend anyone that can onsight as some of the gear and moves are tricky. If not comfortable at the grade, be cautious just after the start above the ledge which has sparse pro.

Comments: Position and movement mix nicely throughout. Finish requires a dash of mental stamina - embrace it.

At all key climbing junctures bomber pro is in hand. If you want to lead routes with top rope crux climbing, then journey to one of the many Front Range clip up crags.

Comments: Great line with a slight emphasis on power. I'll forgo the blow by blow gear beta, but suffice to say, if you don't properly sew up the low crux gear can rip and you will crater. On a fall from the lower roof crux two weeks ago I pulled two cams and decked from 35'. Be careful and make sure your gear is totally dialed.

Comments: My recollection of Power Glide is that it's to the left of the problem the woman is shown on. The key hold is a crappy undercling in the roof off which you paste the feet high and make a huge toss to the top - Power then Glide. The incut on the upper face mid way up maybe out ... I just can't remember. I just recall some crazy dyno action after sick power crimping. Classic eliminate problem. I could be mistaken, but after years spent in my youth working Power Glide back in the 80s with the ... more >>

Comments: Nice departure from the standard Genesis finish. Proper sling usage on the last few bolts of Genesis eases the rope drag for the crux traverse.

Comments: An Eldo classic with great pro and movement varying from power to sequential ballet. Probably much harder in hot temps and/or very humid days. I would be in favor of the CopperHead being removed as it is unnecessary tat.
