Comments: I remember worrying about the rope cutting over the sharp flake on the .11 OW pitch just before the traverse to get to the Money pitch. We spent the night in intermittent rain on the ledge above this section just underneath the" mirror on the wall" flake that can be seen 150' to the right of the 12 ow. The Black is home to some huge bats!

Comments: The best way to descend is to simul-rap off both sides of the tower. 1 60m should be long enough. Make sure you run the rope through the ring, so the rope doesn't roll. Glad you had fun on it, Monty; maybe I'll see you up there before the closure.

Thanks out to Kevin Stricker and Dave Russell for replacing the old bolts.

Comments: I got a pretty good gold offset nut here; however, it probably is too low to be of any help if you were to slip at the crux.

Comments: A little harder than Atlantis, but every bit as good. Pitch 3 and 11 especially stand out, both for their "just when you think your off route and dead-ended ,look left and there is gear and holds" demeanor. Pitch 3 is some of the finest stone I've climbed in the Black. I'll probably do it again next year.

Comments: I'm pretty sure we got the FA of this one. We call it Enter the Dragon. FA myself and R. Miller (sds) in 90s. One of the best at The Sistas.

Comments: Luke, the name of this wall is Dragon's Den found by myself 15 years ago. I'd be happy to show you all established problems and give you there names as well. Please keep impact at a minimum. I've noticed large white tick marks on all the holds lately. Wouldn't want this place closed to climbing. Pm me and we'll compare notes.

Comments: Chris Kalous' directions to the raps are why we found them. This is a "worth doing again route" IMO.

Comments: AKA "HOTLANTIS" I agree with Steve, this is a very fine climb. A huge thanks goes to Jim, Kent, and Jay for ferrating out this exceptional passage. We caught up with Jim and Kent during our stay and, while listening to their stories, it became clear the amount of work they put into Atlantis. I highly recommend this one.

A few helpful hints: 1) bring Alien offsets. While not entirely necessary, we used them on most pitches. They were key on many pitches. 2) This is not a crack climb. 3) Don't mi... more >>

Comments: One of my old school favs. I used to climb with Steve in the late '80s and can attest to his face climbing skill. A good partner who taught me a lot.

Comments: One of my favorite pitches in all of the Cathedral Spires Area. The climb has really cool moves, good protection (RPs, nuts and small cams), and surprisingly large holds at the rests between the harder moves. A party can descend after the first pitch; anchors are in place as of '98. My friends Dave and Kevin believe the 3 pins at the crux are still in good shape. The gear to back up these pins is bomber.- Pat

Comments: I second that; Rufus Miller showed me this boulder years ago, said he's been bouldering on it since they've owned their cabin up there. Probably mid '80s. This boulder sucks.

Noel grew up in Evergreen and used to climb here often; I still see him here on occassion.

Comments: Posted for realangry: it may be that you were off route on pitches 4 thru 6. 10 years ago my partner and I got lost in this same area and wound up penjying and scarily aiding a few crack systems right of what I know now as actual line. This ended under a rightward traversing roof/detatched block where we bailed leaving 2 Friends (red and purple HB quadcams, I believe). 2 or 3 rappels left to the base and rockfall partially severs both lines which made our already exciting retreat even better.

Comments: One of my favorite wide cracks in the Platte. Next time I'm up there all the antique hardware is coming down (just on the offwidth). Deserving of 3 stars.

Comments: Bolts are too close together and the routes are rated on the easy side although you will still find me clipping them. We measured the distance between bolts at the Starcastle to be 42 inches apart, clipable from almost the same stance.

Comments: Wow Bill, super classic but never actually been able to do the crux. Me thinks you're sandbaggin' again.
