Comments: Did this again recently and I think the noises in the cracks are cliff swallows rather than bats.

Comments: There is a short route between Violet Blue and There's Something About Mary that has excellent moves and goes at about .12b.

Comments: I explored the whole face when I did the Green Flash, and unfortunately much of the rock on the face is very soft.

Comments: Did the first two pitches today linking the first 1 1/2 to the top of the pillar so that the belayer could see the leader on the rib. I don't think I'd want to be doing those very delicate clips with the belayer blind below the overhang and a fall potentially landing on the pillar. Managed to OS these pitches. The third was in the shade and too cold to try by the time we got there.

Comments: Have done this route several times now and think that combining P1 of Maternal Damnation with the first pitch proper of Broadmoor gives one of the best pitches in the area. Have also combined pitches 3, 4, and 5 with a 70m rope (using every foot of rope). Great route!

Comments: Great climbing and certainly more of an adventure than most routes at MB! It will get better and better with time as some of the loose stuff gets cleaned off. Four stars if it wasn't for the loose rock.

Comments: Definitely a route I'll come back to again and again. The second pitch is my favorite at MB. Too bad there are all the poorly patched bolt holes.

Comments: Great moves over the overhang and the face above is outstanding! Combined with the first two pitches of Devil's Backbone it probably deserves four stars. Definitely a better finish than the sharp crimps on the third pitch of Devil's Backbone.

Comments: Amen, Malcolm and Bob. Adding anchors in the middle of a classic long standing pitch does not fit in Vedauwoo. Doing the first "two" pitches as one with properly placed gear is not a problem as far as rope drag goes.

Comments: I lead this with Mark Wilford in 1976. Of course Bob Scarpelli could have done it earlier. At the time we rated it 5.10a but that was back in the day when we were doing lots of wide cracks.

Comments: An even better finish is to avoid going left at the top of the last pitch instead turn the small roof and head up and right in a small dihedral. As far as I know, this was first done by Malcolm Daly in the '80s.

Comments: Seemed a bit harder than the other 5.11a routes at MB, but it was running water in the middle third of the crack. Still managed an onsight though.

Comments: Just talked to Topher and he did guide a client up this and the left-facing dihedral above calling it Bold is Love.
