Comments: Wow. For such a magnificent-looking route I would have assumed it to have more recorded ascents. Could this be due to a lack of suitors? From the look of it - and from the fact that Hans Florine totally commented - it seems that this route deserves much more attention. I would be thankful to have a chance at getting utterly beat down on this thing when I am out there this coming spring.

Comments: Another bolt is missing as of yesterday. The bolt that one clipped moving past the jug on "KYE" is now just a screw. KYE and any link-up that uses this jug is now not as possible due to long run-outs. The screw is left, but the grooves of the screw have been tampered with and damaged.

Comments: Curt,
I have noticed this as well. I would not oppose any attempt to perma-draw some of these routes. I donated draws to Squeeze Play about two years ago after I was done with it, and most of them were gone last month, as well as one I left before the crux on Public Solitude. If I have the funds, I would be more than willing to pitch in for permanent draws in the next few months. Until then, I would recommend that everybody take off at least the first draw or two from their projects. Might not ... more >>

Comments: Oh well. I can head up Fountain with a hanger and wrench to make it more friendly to climb next time I am there. I have had draws stolen from Anarchy (on two occasions) and Primo about a month ago. Sadly, stolen draws in CCC is becoming a reality that one can only just shrug about.

Brian: I have very much enjoyed Public Enemy, Love Your Enemies and got on KYE twice. All will be Clear Creek classics soon enough, so thanks for the work.

Comments: On 10/1/2012, I found a down jacket and a water bottle left in the Nomad Cave. Let me know the brand and color of the jacket, and I can get it back to you whenever. The only reason I didn't leave it was because someone stole the draws I left on "Squeeze Play" after I was done working it as well as one of them off of "Public Solitude." I didn't want other things to be stolen as well.

Comments: I got on this route the other day and now I am left wondering why it isn't a bit more popular. If the top of Squeeze Play is bullying you (as it did me), this is a great alternative. Instead of pulling that weird/funky/magical slabbiness beta on "Sucking", you can trade it for some thuggery with the same redpoint crux of Sucking.

Comments: Does anyone know by chance about two bolts missing from "Fountain of Youth?" It looks to me as if two bolts (between the first draw after cutting out left from the "Sonic Youth" start) and the next are gone. There is a 15 ft. (or bigger) space between them and two bare screws. I am not sure if this is intentional or not, but in the picture of Daniel Woods on it he is clipped into two draws where there are now the two screws. It may have been in this state for some time but I am just now notici... more >>

Comments: I got on this route about two(?)years ago and thought it was nightmare. This year it seems that it is still cleaning up just a bit but the route climbed much better. If you are looking for a 12a other than that so-hard-its-dumb route called the Polynator, this is your savior.

Comments: This route has always had some scruffy charm to it...for some reason I have always enjoyed it more than most. Whine-inducing 11d crux up top.

Comments: You may not believe it by seeing the grade on this route, but it is the hardest route in the Arsenal by far and away. Very fun route with a very distinct crux. Great if you get bored half-way up Pump-O-Rama and want a route with an actual crux.

Comments: I know that this is a long shot, but has anyone found a Grigri that was left on the right side of the wall (under Ten Digit and such) in the past few days? I left it there last Sunday morning. Will provide a 6 pack of choice for return. Cheers.

Comments: Thank you for fixing the draw. Myself and another climber were at the New River Wall watching. Now I can feel a bit better about slogging up this rig when I finally sack up and walk up there for it.

Comments: I have tried Sonic Youth 2-3 times before this year, and I finally decided to get back and tie up loose ends. While I was over there, I got on this route as a warm-up, and I thought it was fantastic. As far as the grade is concerned, I think it sits somewhere in the 11d-12b range, but I couldn't tell, so hopefully time and repeats will. That aside, I found this to be a great new addition to the New River Wall and that goes for all of the other routes on the wall. When I first saw all the bolts g... more >>

Comments: This line is brilliant, but its approach is wonderfully uninspiring though this route is certainly worth the effort. The pinch crux mid-route is like getting hit by a train...it is hard for me to link. Is this route particularly hard for the grade or do I just have embarrassingly bad footwork?

Comments: I thought this route was fantastic even though it didn't fit my style very well. The bottom crux is fun, and the top was heartbreaker for sure. I literally fell so close to chains I could almost bite them twice. If you have already done Public or are looking to do a first .13b, I highly recommend this route over some of the others in CCC.

Comments: Hank, fucking hilarious.
Mark, this might be a bit late, but I would oppose your proposal of anything near the .13 grade to Mighty Dog. I felt that this was soft for the grade of 12c and would propose that it is on the softer side. Have you tried any 13s at Primo? Flying Cowboys is 12c/d, and I felt it was much harder than this as well. Then again, I'm a tall guy with the body of a 12 yr old girl, (pencil fingers) which might have made Mighty Dog easier....

Comments: Tzilla,
I definitely agree with you, keeping a low profile as climbers in Clear Creek is a must to keep it open, but it does suck ass that a lot of people have been complaining about having their draws stolen off routes lately. Nobody that I know is going to be putting permanent anything on any walls.

Comments: SMOKE IT! Awesome route. I just get so bummed every time I'm on it because it ends.
Is it really 12b though...? hard 12a maybe? Eh, Either way, love the route.

Comments: @Jay Samuelson,
I definitely agree with you. I have never had draws stolen, but my friend put draws back up and they were stolen again...Fuckin' A.
I have another friend who is tempted to throw down permadraws on the left side, but I'm not sure how this would go down among the community.
Thoughts?

Comments: Hey Everyone,
I have a good friend who is genuinely trying hard on Anatomic, the traverse starting from Monkey Wrench and ending on Hazardous Waste. I put up the draws on it, and nearly half were mine even though i am done working the route. He has had his draws stolen twice from this route (once every draw on the route, the other only three draws were taken) If you have any clue who might have taken the draws i am not angry or trying to make my chest bigger via keyboard and internet but i would... more >>

Comments: Kaelen, I have tried the variation as well but couldn't really touch it. I have asked around, and as far as I know it still has yet to see an FA, but I wouldn't be surprised someone pipes up and claims they got it. There are some Herculean strong mofos that hang around the Primo area.... If you ended up linking it, I would wouldn't contest the grade of .13/13+-ish.
