Comments: Its definitely chipped. If "mostly" means more than half, then I would say its not "mostly" chippped. But there are more than a few chipped holds if my memory serves. I thought it climbed really nice, but like many chipped routes, it appears to have been fit to the FAs dimensions, which is kinda lame IMO. Still worth trying if you're in the area. Check the bolts first.

Comments: I think this is "El Trencabarrals", which sits right below Gorro Frigi:

Pitch 1, with El Trencabarrals in the background.  The railed "Tourist Trail" is visible below.

Comments: The climbing is a lot more sustained, but the rock is a lot worse. The bloks on the right look super sketchy. Have your belayer stand off to the left. More of a pump route than a power route.

Comments: While I personally agree with Monty, I believe Mike is a JeffCo Open Space Ranger, so I recommend that we follow his advice.

At this point, I don't believe these areas are getting so much traffic that the lack of a designated trail will result in multiple social trails.

Comments: IMHO, this is one of the best routes at Shelf--probably top ten. Its clearly the best 5.11 of the 109 I've done at Shelf. The stone on the upper half is as good as the better stuff at Siurana.

Comments: The standard method for freeing the first pitch is to start up Sheer Trickery, then head right after the third bolt to join the West Face crack. I don't know if the "direct" bolt ladder has ever been freed.

Comments: This is a really worthwhile route, which climbs a lot longer than it looks. There are some dirty holds near the start, but the rock at the top is excellent. I thought the crux was similar in difficulty to the crux of Cure (~V6). Great addition!

Comments: This has some great rock & cool moves, but it's ridiculously contrived even by Shelf standards. Curious to know why they didn't just put the bolts in the middle of the face. I suppose they wanted the crack in the right face to be on, but the dihedral crack & left wall to be off. Kinda hard to lieback a crack when you can't flag, because there's an enormous wall in your way, which, by the way, you can't touch because it's "off". Anyway, it's a great route if you have a pair of Shelf Road Blin... more >>

Comments: Gets my vote as the best hard sport route in the Lander area. Has a bit of everything and requires a number of diverse abilities to send.

Comments: "Frizmo" has something to do with Jeff Frizzel. I've heard that something broke on this a few years ago and it might be 13b now?
