Comments: I would say the bulge is maybe 5.6, but it is only one move and the rest is easy and fun with big holds and lots of pro placements.

Comments: Well protected but still rather dirty. It might clean up and be a decent balance climb. We did this right after 2 days of rain and keeping the mud off your shoes was a challenge and for that reason I really didn't enjoy it. I was thinking of rating it a "bomb" but perhaps it would be more enjoyable if it had been dry for the last couple of days.

Comments: I thought the reach for the "good jug" over the roof was rather tough. I kind of did it a bit recklessly based on the description looking for a jug and pumped myself out. I found it to be a long reach, and I would say as hard as some of the 5.9/5.10a roofs in Boulder Canyon. Perhaps it is easier for taller climbers, but I had to use a marginal hold before I could reach the jug. The rest of the route isn't particularly interesting or difficult. A one move wonder.

Comments: One more comment. The "beta" photo that goes along with this has the caption "# 7 in the photo"... BUT this phote appears for several climbs. Number 7 is the 5.9 "This Ain't Naturita, Pilgrim". I actually did that first thinking it would be an easy 7 warm up and was a bit surprised at the stiff climbing for what I thought was 5.7 grade... however, this route wasn't substantially easier. I would say if the other one is a 5.9, this one is more like 5.8.

Comments: Like the previous poster, I placed a cam before the first bolt. Once I pulled the move it wasn't hard, but this rock is really polished. Compared to the Overhang area and climbs in Boulder Canyon, the polished rocks make this feel much harder.

Comments: I just tried this climb for the first time yesterday and it was great.

A few comments about the first pitch. There wasn't any "loose" rock in the sense of rocks just lying on edges ready to fall off, but most of the rock sounded very hollow. Many times I touched flakes that were fairly loose (large flakes the size of dinner plates). Someone could easily pull one of those off.
That being said, even avoiding the loose flakes there were plenty of big holds and the climbing stayed mostly i... more >>

Comments: I agree with the previous comments. The crux is 10 feet or so below the flake. I would say the flake is 5.6 at most. 10 feet below there are some very reachy moves on just friction footholds (maybe if you are tall the flake is the crux...). It is very well protected though and a fun but short climb.

Comments: Someone should fix the anchor at the top of this route!

If I had rope or webbing with me, I would have done it, but we left due to rain.

At the top, there are 2 bolts with rap rings that look solid. I imagine someone wanted to avoid having the rope go over the edge, so they tied rope (7mm rope in loops I think) to the bolts and extended it to two more rap rings over the edge. The problem:

They tied the rope in a loop going through both bolts and the rap rings so it forms a triangle. That g... more >>

Comments: Instead of belaying by the pine tree, we belayed above the hand crack and after the traverse to the left. It seems like a more comfortable position plus it gives you a few more feet of rope to run it out until the summit. The picture posted here shows a guy climbing the crack above and to the right of the tree. I went straight up the hand crack to the left of the tree which is the way I read the guide. The crack to the right looked easier by didn't take pro as well. I would say that the cra... more >>

Comments: This is a fun route with big, positive hand holds for the entire thing. It is a sequence of interesting moves shifting your weight around. I would say there isn't a single move harder than 5.8, but it is sustained throughout.

Comments: The rating on this is way off. 10a?! I went there last night and lead it without knowing the rating. It took me a while to find it on here because I was searching for a 5.8. This one is easier than X It which is the 9 next to it (and even that is a one move climb to perhaps make it a 9)

Maybe I bypassed the crux as the other comment suggested... but I seemed to follow the bolts and not using available holds is a bit contrived.

None the less it is a fun climb. You should not be intimidated... more >>

By: Julius Beres When: Jul 24, 2008

Comments: I actually thought this was a fun chimney. I lead it today as the first pitch of Swanson's Arete and I would say is was no harder than the rest of the route which goes at 5.5. There is some loose rock, but not too much and it does take pro well (there are also two solid looking pitons along the way and 2 sets of bolts for rappels along with plenty of cracks).

That being said I only gave it one star because of the risk factor. DO NOT climb this route if anyone is rappelling from above. The c... more >>


Location: CO : Boulder : Eldorado Canyon SP : The Wind Tower : Wind Tower - SW Face : Breezy (5.5)

Comments: This climb is really fun for the grade. It also stays in the shade longer than most of the climbs on the face, so it was a good climb to do in the late morning as the rest of the face was getting really hot.

I did both pitches in one with a 60m rope and some rope to spare. There was a bit of rope drag (I really needed two longer slings) but it was ok.

A great place to take gym climber to practice some bomber hand jams on the second pitch.

Nice easy walk off from the top (I've done Wind Ri... more >>

Comments: I agree with Steve Wood's comment about the committing move for someone 5'8" or shorter.

I did the "crux" part of the route around the first bolt and then cruised past the next two bolts to the "ledge" (large foot hold, big hands, comfortable position) below the pin. I'm 5'8" and I could not clip the pin from that ledge nor could I reach the big hold just next to the pin. I made the mistake of going left and peeled... I went all the way down, stopping about 5 feet off the ground (at the poin... more >>

Comments: Just don't clip that bolt before making the move. I'm a shorter climber and had no shot of making that clip until after making the move (the last bolt isn't much further down, so the fall wouldn't be bad). It is a rather committing, balance move, but aside from that the rest of the climb is rather mellow. After making the step, I wouldn't say it was actually harder than 5.8, but mentally it might seem harder since you are making a high step onto a small foothold without very good hands.

Location: CO : Boulder : Boulder Canyon : Animal World

Comments: I guess I made the same mistake as others here and went to Mine Hole Crag while looking for lower Animal World.

Lower Animal World is pretty much directly above and to the right of Boulderado. We initially went too far up and were traversing above Lower Animal World... To get to that crag, take the right just as you get to the top of Boulderado (I thought that right was just for the getting to the anchors of Boulderado and continued on...) Now that I know the way, it is only a 5 minute walk... more >>

Comments: At the bulge, you can get in a #1 or #2 cam before you pull over. The move is fun with good friction stemming and decent hand jams. The rest of the climb is fun and blocky, and much easier (5.5-5.6).

Comments: Instead of going to the break in the roof, pull the roof. There is a good undercling and then good holds over the top... adds some fun to an easy line (pulling the roof directly is probably still only 5.7).
