Comments: Seriously one of the best multi-pitch, South Platte climbs I've been on. It is very sustained, exposed, and a ton of fun. The 10b pitch is scrappy and is followed by the most sustained pitch of the climb. It's only 5.9 but will keep you working, so be solid at the grade.

What everyone has said about the gear is pretty spot on. Triples from BD #0.75 to 3 makes the climb very well-protected. We also had two 4s which was nice ,but we could have lost one. I would definitely take a set of nuts... more >>

Comments: If you're going to climb this route, skip the traverse on the crux pitch and head straight up on the 10a/b section. The tricky section is very short and more of a balancy, hidden move than a pumpfest. Awesome exposure and fun climbing high on Redgarden Wall. What more could you ask for?!

Comments: Climbed this today. The first and second pitches consisted of icy, low grade snow. I can't see either pitches going above WI2. I wouldn't recommend roping up for either pitches as the climbing is extremely easy and not protectable.

The approach to this climb is not near as bad as the beta lets on, but it will take a good half an hour. Be aware before you commit to the approach that there is only one really worth it pitch. This being the third pitch, but it is an excellent climb though, so I wo... more >>

Comments: Short, sweet, and sandbagged. I'd call it 10a/b probably, so 9+ isn't too far off. Takes 0.3-0.75 C4s at the bottom. Up top is some sketchy, old fixed gear, but the climbing is easier.

Comments: This route is definitely sandbagged. I'd say it's 10d if not 11aish. Requires some big dynamic moves, especially if you're shorter.

Comments: This is an awesome route and can be a lot of fun, yet has potential of danger. Do no underestimate the length of this route. I went to this route with expectations of it taking 6 hours tops. From the parking lot, it took us 9 hours!! We got stuck behind two slower parties and also got off route after 4th belay. I got stuck in some chossy, scary shit, and we had to climb runout slab to get back on route. Plan accordingly and be prepared for a long day, especially if you choose to climb behind oth... more >>

Comments: Does anybody know anything about the routes right by the creek to the right of the bridge that takes you to Columbine Trail and the trail to the Pinnacle? They are definitely new and maybe have been put up in the past year or two. I'm looking for grades and if they're actually finished (with anchors). Any beta would be great, thanks!

Comments: Best route in Cheyenne Canyon by far!! Maybe even in the Springs!

Comments: Sustained as can be. I think it's somewhat harder (also less fun) than the 11 b/c to the right.

Comments: Also as far as gear goes big stuff is certainly beneficial, but we took double cams from 0.4 to 3 and used all of them more than once. Take everything you've got! This climb likes gear.

Comments: Just climbed this route today. There was some icefall and some water on the climb, but it will still fun and climbable. Nobody talks much about the descent, and the little that is mentioned says to go southwest (climber's left at top of route) to rap and walk off. There isn't much to rap off except some trees, and it takes longer to get back to the base of the climb that way. If you go east (climber's right), there is an easy, all walk off descent down a gully to the right of Wigwam Dome.

Comments: Does anybody have any beta on this route for early early spring? Any info on current conditions would be great. I'm not sure how much ice would be on it right now, but if there is a bit and mainly a mixed climb, I think the route would still be interesting.

Comments: Thinking about climbing this route. Anyone have some updated beta at all? Are the bolts still loose? I noticed hangers were hacked off some bolts by a line of old pitons, were these the spinning bolts?
