Comments: Thanks for taking the initiative, Keith! Most people just complain about the biners and expect someone else to replace them. Thanks for just replacing 'em.
Cheers

Comments: In regards to the tyrol:
This should be taken down ASAP. Jeffco Open Space does not allow tyrols with the exception of the Mission Wall tyrol (which was grandfathered in). Whoever put it up, please take it down (if the Open Space hasn't already), so we can keep a good relationship with the Open Space.

The approach only takes 5 minutes without the tyrol anyway.

Beta wise:
From the rail, I'm a little fuzzy on beta, but I remember a really crucial left heelhook that allows you to suck in really ... more >>

Comments: Huge thanks to who ever replaced the bolts, did some anchor upkeep through out the route, and added an anchor at the top of the wall. You even used glue in's :) You Rock!

I second the not rapping the route. Waltzing down in flops was most excellent!

Comments: Did you go to the second Corwina Park parking lot????? There is a small bridge that you cross right next to a house to pull into the lot. It's a smaller parking lot than the first entrance. From the lot, there is only 1 trail to hike.

Comments: Wow.... Just wow. One of the most memorable pitches I've ever climbed. 11++ seems a little more fair for a rating ;)

Comments: I've always overlooked this route because it was a "linkup", but it climbs super well and stays very sustained at 12a/b. I think 12d is very far fetched, since there are no moves harder than say 12b, but the sustained nature certainly adds a letter to that. Really fun!

Comments: The left facing flake at the top is gone! I hope no body was around when that thing ripped off, it was huge. The top of the climb is harder now and a #4 camalot is needed to protect the finish.

Comments: This is a great problem. I thought it was closer to V4 than V3, but I stayed pretty low the whole time, too. Regardless, this thing is classic.

Comments: I replaced the last bolt on this today. Went up to replace the hanger only, but once the bolt was out I thought it was too rusty for me to want to re-use it.
  • As for the Loose Block down low, the left side is fully attatched and solid, but the right side is dangerously loose. Fortunately you can easily avoid the right side.

It's hard to rate this route since there are 2 sit down rests.... I'd say 12c if you use the rests, and 12d if you fly by them.

Comments: I thought this was a challenging, thought-provoking climb that was very sustained. I'd give this route 3 stars if it wasn't for some friable rock throughout the route.

Comments: This route is sooo good. Every pitch is very unique and fun. 5 out of 4 stars for sure!

A tip if your partner is a little squimish about following the opening traverse moves on p4.
Once you finish leading the pitch: Pull up all the rope and put your partner on belay like normal. Untie and lower down your end of the rope. Your partner can then tie in on a bite with a locker (that way they can ditch that rope after the traverse) and be on top rope for the first traverse, just like climbin' on ... more >>

Comments: This picture clearly illustrates where not to camp. Please do not camp here. There is plenty of great, free camping all along the road on National Forest land. There's a sign at the parking area saying "NO CAMPING/ FIRES". Landowners don't want you camping at their gate, and this is a Wildlife Area where it is clearly stated, no camping.
Please Don't Do This.
