Comments: I broke a pretty good jug on this a couple days ago 2 moves before the final bolt. It was bound to break at some point soon, i'm only 150. It goes still just fine using a crimp to the left of it.

UPDATE: I broke ANOTHER hold a week later, this time way more essential. This was my send run, felt great up there and the double handed, double ticked crimp before the final bolt exploded on me. Its definitely a lot harder now with a giant space to reach the clipping jug of the last bolt. I didn't try... more >>

Comments: I recall trying to lock in my knees multiple times with just my pants, it would not stay put. I guess I need longer lower limbs (or a knee pad).

Comments: My thoughts on the grade: without any kneebars, this route does not feel soft. I didn't have any pads and as such didn't use any kneebars. I see people taking nice, long rests after the burly beginning right before the crux with a kneebar, others I have seen lock in multiple knee bars even throughout the crux. To those that do that, I can see it definitely being a soft 13b. My experience of it was a full on enduro fight all the way from the bottom to the stand rest.

Comments: Hardest 5.12c I've ever been on. I've tried it once or twice every year the past 4 years, and I still cannot send. New guidebook puts it at 5.12d in addition to Choss Family being 5.11d, which I agree with.

Comments: The main bridge has been destroyed by trees. No way to cross the river without hopping on rocks.

Comments: Beta on the face just after the roof is key. I got a glorious send on this last route of the last day. Really worth it. I miss Rifle!

Comments: I have heard that this route is really a 13a. After nearly getting it i would have to agree it feels like a reimers 13a.

Comments: I am projecting Wild Spider and know the moves quite well. I guess your right about the dyno at the end, although i feel it is the best way for most everyone. I have heard stories of it being harder than 13c. I might as well just put 13+ because of its ambiguity.

Comments: Thanks for that info, Jay. That would save me a lot of future trouble, cuz I have a 70 meter.
