Comments: D@n- no; top of the route is wet during snowmelt. Leo, not that I've ever seen; but they do form sometimes elsewhere in the park.

Comments: Keep an eye out for any more anchor-fixing events down there and be sure to put that idea forward then too.

Comments: Here in the early days of this crag, the routes can't get enough brushing. Feel free to pitch in on some. Blow tubes work surprisingly well too. Meantime, we'll keep working at it. It wouldn't hurt either to take a few minutes and help re-arrange the abundant flat stones into steps and landings. This is a work in progress.

Comments: Agreed, this crag needs some serious scrubbing. Believe it or not, I have already spent quite a bit of time brushing and de-vegetating each route.

Comments: It's called Wishbone Crack. FA by Tom Hanson back in the '80s sometime.

Comments: They don't do it to get paid you douche. The point is that with buying Tod's book all the proceeds go right back into development and maintainence. With your pathetic spray all over MP lately, you've implied you have been all over DH, at least enough to know to state this:
"which has at least one error on almost every page."
To be so well informed, you clearly must have utilized the various trails and clipped lots of bolts. All of which were products of personal expense; both fi... more >>

Comments: It's a glacial erratic. The rock was scooped up elsewhere and dragged along and relocated by the glacier that carved out Devil's Head, T-Ridge, and left the huge, balanced rock down Rampart Range Road.

Comments: Scott - Garrick went through a phase of listing a lot of routes and arbitrarily putting Tom down for the the FA w/out consulting Tom first. I remember that old guide from ages ago. It would be nice for posterity if you ran through the Grocery Store listings and corrected the FAs.

Comments: Part of the charm about CWC bouldering is that a big majority of what can be hopped on is not recorded. Tom and I have found unclimbed stuff every time we've gone on a sidehill bushwhack boulder hunt; although the last time we did that was 3 years ago. General key to whether someone has been there before you is if you're brushing lichens and pebbles off of the obvious holds, you've got an FA; if the holds are only dusty probably not.
And there's still a good hundred epic prob... more >>

Comments: There used to be a guide back in the '80s by a guy named Alan Mosiman that was exclusively the Grocery Store area. That is where this rating came from. They were all Colo. Mtn. Club climbers, spent time there in the '60s and '70s. But that last move has always been 10-ish. The best way to get to the anchors on the Tower is to do a handstand on the rim and then kip over the gap to the tower.

Comments: That narrows it to a couple hundred meters of the canyon. Are you talking east of South Canyon point?

Comments: Totally agree with you on that, Rich. I think this particular route has a creepy flake that flexes down below the crux.

Comments: The Park has a zero-tolerance policy on bolting at the moment. No committees, no permits, nada. The new administration won't even bother returning my queries. The previous one under Jen Marten at least would hear us out. But it took pointing out that life-safety was at stake just to get extremely limited permission to replace anchors on 2 of the oldest walls; and even then Tod probably spent about 20 hours navigating the forms.
We might try again this Winter, but the effort seems great... more >>

Comments: Captured for posterity,
mlloyd, 8/15/11:

"I rapped in and checked out this route the other day to find a beautiful climb albeit very dirty. I cleaned it up with a brush and a nut tool, removing lots of loose rock and sand, revealing good rock below. I was interested in leading this climb for the first time (it has only been TR'ed). I have climbed in CWC for years and like the adventury feel of sparse pro and lack of trusty bolts but found no way to climb this route without soloing it. I chose t... more >>

Comments: This is a good place for Summer workouts (most of the routes are hard) for Douglas and Arapahoe County residents when you don't have a long day for the real destinations. The actual best approach is by first getting to 9 Lives Arete on the East side of the creek, then trending southeast uphill, making sure you aim for each distant boulder you can see. By going from boulder to boulder, it will lead you the Westernmost point of the Du... more >>
