Comments: Hiked by these a few times and never had a chance to get to the bases to touch the rock...mmmnnn...

Amazing no one has bolted some multi-pitch sport routes on these beautiful formations.

Comments: Fantastic, gentlemen!
Isn't the quartz here sharp, yet tremendous and pretty?
Gorgeous-looking pitches.
The whole vertical-ish face, left of your line, has room for new-routing as well....

Comments: Way to go, guys.

What a great adventure; I love that Trinity Creek drainage.

Seriously, no matter earlier pioneer dirt-bags/trust-funders may have done this face like you, and perhaps criss-crossed your line (yes, there are a few cleaner-looking dihedrals that have been done by COBS staff at the base - which ones, FA, IDK. Old rap slings are tell-tale indicators...).

Way to describe your line (great diction) and what a great name!

BTW, Storm King's N. face has only one documented... more >>

Comments: Gaining TR-access to these west face routes and others is the reason I climbed E.E.S.
We used to call the easiest line Salty Lips.

Comments: I never was asked about adding another bolt to this route, the 2nd route at the cliff, after Blackbeard's Tears. But then again, I haven't lived up on the North Coast for many years.

Whatever, it's fine. The same thing happened with Blackbeard's Tears w/ the fixed anchor at the end of the free section ... it's good, however.

Yes, I vaguely recall hanging on hooks on lead while hand-drilling...

Comments: Nolan, I understand your concerns.

Assuredly, no one ever went over there even when it was open-and surely won't go there now, as the schwack down to this fun TR was horrendous. Plus, it's CLOSED!

Per KJS: this is on private property. Please stop climbing here. Please stop posting the climb. "Everything to the right of the East Animas designated climbing trail is private property. You can see the boundaries on the La Plata County GIS site." This information is a public crowdsourcing effor... more >>

Comments: Sounds like a blast! I recall stacking some pins early on and being gripped until the crack provided more security. No wonder it hasn't seen many ascents.
