Memorial to my friend Ross Richter just past the friendship boulders down by the bridge across the stream.  I taught Ross how to climb on these boulders and gave him his first pair of climbing shoes.  Ross truly loved the mountains and would often set off from the YMCA on foot along this path with a bag of skittles and some water to go on 20-30 mile hikes summiting peaks along the divide.  He died tragically along with four other people after midnight in a dive bar in Denver during a robbery gone bad.

Comments: A bit of context here: I wrote this route description when this site was just being conceived, long before any of us knew what the site was our would become to be. The only existing routes on this site were buildering routes on the engineering building at CU. There were 6 registered users, and we probably received 10 visits a week or something. The main climbing site on the internet was rec.climbing.

I submitted some brief descriptions of routes to Myke on a floppy disk as a sort of quick, g... more >>

Comments: Some beta on this problem. The last move, right where I fall, is the crux. This problem has some very angular holds that eventually cut into your hands in all the wrong spots if you keep trying it multiple times (like I did). Otherwise it is a good problem with decent movement.

Comments: The approach to Pino wall is quite short from the tram terminal, probably only 15-20 minutes when you have it dialed. Take the crest trail south from the tram terminal through the woods. After about 5 minutes on the right there is a faint rocky trail to the crest. Take this to the crest and then find the hard to see two cinder block supports mentioned in the guidebook about 200 feet southeast along the crest. Just before the blocks is a small cairn marking the proper descent from the crest. ... more >>

Comments: I have to agree with DTP, this feels like 5.4ish climbing. 3:09 car to car? thats pretty fast! I thought I was clipping along pretty well at 3:50, but I certainly wasn't running and stopped a couple times. Coming down the ramp is certainly faster than Chimney Canyon but bush-wacking through the pricker bushes is not fun at all.

Comments: There are a lot of variations on this face in the V4-5 range. Some are quite good. Perhaps the most ridiculous/silly is a low traverse, left to right of the entire overhang. I worked on it for months and eventually sent. This was before they put mulch down at the base and I was a few inches shorter. Here's a link to a few variations:
