Comments: You can keep the money. I only ask that I can name the traverse. "Telluride Traverse" seems a little bland, and it winter does have its advantages. I made it all the way to Mt. Emma and back into town in 26 hours before I couldn't take the postholing anymore. That road is a real bitch though.

Comments: Looks like a killer route! I was curious about if that smear to the right has ever been climbed? Obviously it would be difficult to get to the start above the arch, but it sure looks like a beautiful line.

Comments: So has this ever been attempted and failed (section B or the whole thing)? And how much for a winter traverse?

Comments: There is a second set of chains in a chimney another pitch up. If you're real adventurous you can even rim out via a very runout chimney. Really cool up there! 1st pitch is just the beginning...

Comments: A better option to start the escape from the top of Comic Relief buttress is to rap from the first station, swing over to the opposite wall and the scramble up to the knife-edge ridge. It's really easy to do, and there is no need to rap all the way into the gully. The escape goes in only a couple pitches, and you could probably scramble the whole thing, although there are a few exposed/heady sections. Be careful with rope drag. This should deposit you just below and looker's left of the campgrou... more >>

Comments: I still liked this variation, but we definitely need to go back and do the original. I guess I didn't really get a good look at it.

Comments: The PG-13 rating is mostly for loose rock and runouts through first bit of pitch 2. Should be back soon to trundle some stuff. First belay is somewhat protected from rockfall, but heads up and definitely bring helmets.

Comments: Unfortunately I haven't encountered any route names, grades or topos but this is a good site for some more pictures of the area:
chileclimbers.cl/?p=6751
On the other hand, cracks are usually a lot easier to judge (for me at least) than face climbs as far as grades go and besides, I find it much easier to push myself when I don't know what I'm climbing (ignorance is bliss?). Embrace the adventure!
