Comments:
  • The crux pin is no longer... it pulled when I slipped on the crux.

Luckily you can get a good #4 stopper before commiting to the crux moves.

Comments: Excellent pitch. As for the "rope drag", if you use a 48" sling on both the webbing (bail tat?) under the roof, and then another 48" on your first piece in the roof; The drag should be pretty minimal.

I used 1 #4 Camalot in the wide part before the roof, and nothing smaller than a #0.5 Camalot.

Comments: This is actually a picture of the 2nd pitch of Solid Gold... "Playin Hooky" is really just a 1 pitch variation to this fine line.

Comments: This is a fun route that serves at a good warm up. Moderate, some what steep climbing leads to a tricky sequence at the 4th bolt. Definitely the best warm-up at the crag.

Comments: I really liked feel the moment. At first I didn't think much of it, but it really reminds you how lucky we are. Nice to see people having fun at their local cliffs.

Lots of good entrys

Comments: The whole cave is fixed, including the warm ups. Makes for a fun day of hang doggin, and a send here and there.

Comments: Water was soo high you couldnt walk to the start of the route from the gully rap. We built an anchor on top and fixed a line down to the bolted belay above p1, then raped our lead line to a small perch at the base of p1. Excellent, excellent route. Thought the dihederal on pitch 2 was harder than 10a...

Comments: It should be noted that this area is technically the West Canyon. Wine and Roses just happens to be smack in the middle of everything.

Comments: I replaced the sling at the last bolt a week ago. There is now a chain with a fixed biner instead. Please don't take the biner, this protects the final crux very well, if anyone has a problem with this let me know and I will remove it.

Comments: Not sure where your getting your info from. Everything at Thunder is documented pretty Well on this site. Never heard of a route called that down there, but everything there is "un-f***ing real"

Comments: The first pitch of this is excellent. Definitely thought there were 3, 5.11ish cruxes from steep pulling to delicate face climbing. Cut all of the tat off the anchor today and added chains for a safe rap. A 70m rope will just barely get you down... knot your ends.

Comments: Thanks for the "old guy perspective", Glenn. Penitente must of been an amazing place to develop. I'd love to hear the story of Whipping Post.

Comments: An excellent route with every type of climbing the platte has to offer (except offwidth, but that's fine with me). The upper finger crack is one of the best I've climbed. Great find Darren

We rapped down Ankar gate, which wasn't bad. It helps to clip a couple directional bolts for the tension traverse left from the saddle, then pull your partner over on their way down.

Comments: I definitely have to agree with Kaelen. I got this on my 2nd go, too. I think this is easier than most 12d's in the canyon. Excellent route though, really beautiful sequences on excellent stone.
