Comments: Who's the black private dick
That's a sex machine to all the chicks?
SHAFT!
Ya damn right!

Who is the man that would risk his neck
For his brother man?
SHAFT!
Can you dig it?

Who's the cat that won't cop out
When there's danger all about?
SHAFT!
Right On!

They say this cat Shaft is a bad mother.
SHUT YOUR MOUTH!
I'm talkin' 'bout Shaft.
THEN WE CAN DIG IT!

He's a complicated man,
But no one understands him but his woman.
JOHN SHAFT!

Comments: Thanks Kevin,
Glad to see the trail is being used. When we developed the crag, one concern was to establish a consistent route to curtail wandering in the woods and the social trails that result.

Comments: 5.8 sounds good to me. I thought it felt like a .9, but it's always harder when you're climbing through the lichen and munge on the FA. Jared gave it a good brushing down when we finished, so I'm not too surprised it goes easier.

Comments: Good to hear your getting back out there again, Bruce.
Mark Rolofson gives Dude's Dihedral .11b in Golden Rock Climbs. The crux sequence feels like .11 to me.

Comments: We're going down to Canelo and will be taking time to climb at the Mustang. Probably leave Golden the 17th. Anyone up for giving us the tour?


We'll have Beer.

Comments: Easiest possible way, .9, but if you pull the direct arete and don't step left around the corner, pretty solid .10 so I'll go with .10-.

Comments: On the summit of Kelso. A very fun day; the younger goats started jumping around in excitement when we launched into our first turns.

Comments: Sent this again last Friday from the Snake Eyes start... cool throws into huecos to fun, thin biz! Not sure which holds broke off; every time I get on it, I've been using (or falling off) the same holds I used on the FA.

Comments: Thanks, Jay. I've made the corrections you suggested to the L to R list and corrected the references to route names in the route locations. Hope I got it right this time. I am psyched to see this great little crag has been getting some more attention! Props on the new routes.

Comments: A classic ski descent in the spring! South facing, so it tends to set up early. Climb it while it's frozen in the wee hours of the morning, take a nap while you wait for the sun, and tip your skis off the summit as soon as the snow starts to soften. More corn than Kansas.

Comments: Cool to hear this finally went. When we attempted the FA, I remember stacking a leaper z, two angles, and a knife blade, all tied off in a shallow hole in the seam. I couldn't get them to stick until I had them tied off and while gently waiting them I tapped each in as far as I could. With sand coming out of the placement (like sand through an hourglass) the whole time I was on on it, I drilled a baby angle and we bailed. The line we left fixed, swung in the breeze for what seemed like years. ... more >>

Comments: Sorry to burst Laurent's (Hubbel's bubbles?) bubble...but rather than re-writing history, the Tour de Platte was a term coined by Ken Trout in 1986 and first applied to our ascent of all the Sheep Rock domes in a day. See page 217 under Sheep Rock in South Platte Rock Climbing by Peter Hubbel and Mark Rolofson.

Comments: Actually the first ascent party of Rastafari wasn't contacted...at least no one asked me... but I say way to go! That second pitch was a nightmare. To who ever put in the bolts, thanks.

Comments: Mighty generous placing my name first on this route...Trout led all but the top out and I'm sure I never would have visited the Black Wall in the first place were it not for his vision.
