One of several boulders neatly nestled in the boggy waters of the aptly named Bog. Uphill from this area is the scree field that houses many spectacular boulders with several amazing lines.

Comments: Honestly, all that matters is that, at the end of the day, you have a smile on your face. Personally, a bigger smile spread across my cheeks after doing this problem from the ground. Sometimes I, too, lose sight of the fact that climbing is a completely subjective activity. I still argue that this line isn't contrived, but that is my subjective opinion.

Comments: I'm going to go out on a limb here, and say that the quality of the line is actually diminished if you don't start from the sit start. My reasoning; there is an extended crux (for me) starting from the sit start that isn't there if you start in the middle of the face. At several points in time, cursing the Perch, I swore that the start was very height dependent (being about 6'), but once your butt is off the ground and you grab the sidepull bloc, the fun truly begins. Sure, it's hard t... more >>

Comments: None of these pictures are accurate in showing Finger Ripper. The proper route avoids the crack completely, using the two crimps on the face that are basically in line with each other (the lower one being much better than the higher). Move off of these crimps to the sidepulls located near the top of the lower face. Pull those feet up and commit for the bomber edge above.

For reference, yes, the two pictures are of Ship's Prow Right, while the "good form" picture is of another Standard Route on ... more >>

Comments: Technically, this problem is located on BLM land (being "close" to the dam) and, henceforth is considered off limits but, that being said, it is a Gill problem. So, JordAnnnnn, this isn't part of the Piano Boulders (City of Fort Collins property).

Comments: Ughhhhh! Best "V3" problem at Rotary, yet so often overlooked. While the fall from the crux can be intimidating at best, with a big pad or two small ones and a conscious spotter, this problem shouldn't cause any bodily harm. While the R grade may have applied back before the landing was gardened, I don't think it is as applicable today.

Comments: I'm excited to see this small business getting another chance at success in the Fort Collins/Northern Colorado area. While I would love to be at the re-opening on April 5th, I will be attending the Piano Boulders Trail Day. The NCCC (Northern Colorado Climbing Coalition) is looking for volunteers, for more information, follow this link.

Comments: Amazingly dynamic moves unlocked this sequence for me.

Joshua, no aesthetic lines with many hold choices? Are you sure you were at the right boulder?
