Comments: Hands down the best face pitches I've climbed in The Platte, and we didn't even get to do the crux last pitch. The 2nd and 3rd pitch bolts have all been replaced except for a buttonhead on the 3rd pitch that protects the final runout to the anchors, which are also old :(. 30 ft to the right is the anchor for on the edge which is in a little bit better shape, but both are in need of being updated. The crux pitch is currently sporting 1/4"ers, hence why we didn't climb it. You can not get down... more >>

Comments: This route is awesome, and may be one of the best unknown routes I've done in the creek.
I took (all BD's) 1 ea .3, #1, #2; (2)#4, (3)#4.5, (2)New #5's and (2)Old #5. I found the old(green) 5 to be key as a new 5 is tipped and #6 will not fit.

Comments: Should be in the sun in the AM, but being the steep nature of the crag I don't know how much it actually receives.

Comments: Sounds maybe like a loose nut on the bolt that had backed off until it finally got pulled off... One of the draw backs to fixed draws is people rarely check the condition of the bolt before climbing further. No good regardless.

Comments: Nice pants, Matt! I can hear the conversation now.

Rob: "Hey Matt, can I take photo's of you in Eldo tomorrow?"
Matt: "Sure, man."
Rob: "Cool. Just make sure you wear some colors that pop!"
Matt: "Oh, I have just the thing."

Comments: While cleaning the crux pitch, my partner effortlessly pulled out the pin that "protected" the crux. Luckily, great gear abounds!

Comments: Did you find any pins on your route? When I was bolting Fools Gold I looked over to the left (probably further left than your line) and saw some ancient looking pins. I love that section of Creek Side.

Comments: Powerful, sporty, and awesome!
It sounds silly, but a 0.75, 5ft off the ground in the horizontal helps a lot in protecting the start. It keeps your nuts from zippering and your belayer from flying up.

Comments: Really great face route! The crux might be keeping your focus for the routes entirety. Stiff for the grade.

Comments: I would say couch time is is a good benchmark 12c. This is a notch below that at 12b/c. Great movement on HUGE holds.

Comments: Shoot-dang this route is good, man. Varied and interesting the whole way. It was a little wet and dirty yesterday but that only made it that much more fun. Certainly rivals wunsch's dihedral in Colorado as the best 11 crack climb I've done.

Comments: One more rope drag tip! You can place a .5 size piece with a runner in the flake to the left of the roof. This keeps your rope well away from the crack at the lip.
