Comments: You can belay at the stance with one bolt with a few small nuts. I'm not sure if it is worth breaking it up into two pitches, but that's what I had to do in order to retreat to get a TR from my partner after falling multiple times at the crux.

I thought this route was very difficult. I have led and toproped multiples 11s at Eldo and had a much more difficult time on Parting Shot than on COC, Center Route, Parallels, Foxtrot, Vertigo, Naked Edge, etc. Maybe it is because I'm short?

Also, the la... more >>

Comments: Wow, dude, that sucks. I've never heard of that happening before in Cheyenne Canyon. That practically sounds like sabotage.

Comments: I thought the 2nd pitch of this route was very difficult and devious for the grade. Once you get the "good" fingerlock about 9'(?) above the ledge, your troubles are not over. As a hint, I found the arete to the right to be of use.

Comments: It looks like the crack on the JV variation is where birds go to die... there are at least two decaying birds to avoid.

Comments: Yes, there is much more information. The old submission had no practical data, while this description gives more information on getting there and the routes which ascend it.

Comments: This climb is a lot better than it looks from the ground. We used a #1 Camalot in the horizontal.... Though if you get here and you have no cams, I think it wouldn't be too ballsy to do without the piece. Hard and sequential.

Comments: haha, what this photo does not show is me hanging for ten minutes before this. Its easy to look strong after a good rest... Definitely the crux of the route for me though.

Comments: Those moves on the arete moving left are way cool. Very exciting definitely on both ends of the rope.

We ended up topping out on a spire and doing a ~20m rap to the anchors on Rush Buick from a small tree with a bunch of slings on it. Mildly sketchy IMO.

This is Eldo adventure climbing.

Comments: I ended up at the anchors for Rush Buick via a thin crack that went straight up after a short traverse right from the last bolt. A fun route worth doing if you're in the area.

Comments: Very cool! I want to go back sometime this summer and spend a couple days up there. There was a lot of very good looking rock, and very remote.

Comments: This is a great first aid climb. Make sure if you set up the anchor prior you extend the sling over the lip, otherwise it is difficult to reach.

Comments: Yo Bill, go get on Over the Rainbow and rewrite my route description! I may just not be suited for Garden of the Gods climbing! I'd like to think there's a great route buried under that choss.

Comments: I did this climb over the summer and got off of it BARELY with a 60m. YMMV.

Comments: Fall Crack is perfectably protectable with a wide cam. I think I used a #4.5 Camalot equivalent.
