Comments: Put it away this morning. Awesome climb for sure. I can't imagine leading this route before the lower three bolts were put in! Yikes... The finish is really nice requiring balance and good footwork.

Comments: I haven't heard about the idea of adding a bolt to the finish, but I hope it never happens. The runout to the anchor is what makes this climb sooo good. Yes, it would be quite a fall but totally clean. You're forced to stay focused to the very end with interesting and tricky moves. One of my favorite bolted climbs in Eldo!

Comments: Yes, this is one sweet piece of rock! Immediate exposure from the start with incredible position and movement. The moves are thought provoking and cool, and wow, what a thrilling finish!

Comments: Great stone in the upper pitches. The crux is very short and not too committing. Once above the roof, it's probably possible to climb all the way to where the crux pitch starts with a 60m rope.

Comments: Fun climb with interesting moves. 10a seems about right. I felt it protected well where needed.

Comments: Very cool route. It's probably a waste of time trying to protect the 5.8 section up to the first bolt. I thought the first bolt was a bit high. 11c feels about right even though it's only one move of it. The moves getting to the second bolt are probably about 11a/b.


Location: CO : Estes Park Valley : Lumpy Ridge : The Citadel : Heart Of Norway (5.10c)

Comments: We climbed "Root of All Evil" on the Pear to approach the Citadel. It required a little downclimbing at the top to reach the base of the route. The easiest way to access "Norway" is probably far right. We climbed straight up to the base on 5.6 corners to reach the start.

The first move getting off the ground does seem hard for 10a. I suppose someone who is at least 6 ft would find it easier. The first pitch is very interesting and tricky. High quality though.

Getting over to the corner... more >>

Comments: I'll agree with the comment above. Sic, sic, SIC climb! The best BC has to offer. I thought Arm's Bazaar was the best until yesterday.

Great pro the whole way with unrelenting moves. Just go for it! Definitely do it as one pitch, and take lots of slings. An 11d onsight and you'll need to have your gear dialed in at the crux for a successful send.

Comments: Great climbing with awesome views. I had previously been on this route back in JULY of 2001! I almost melted that day from the heat. Today was also very hot up there. I would recommend doing this route on a sunny day in Feb. Very continuous at the grade with tricky gear stances. Good footwork a must!

Comments: Did this last year with my bud Joe V. Long approach, but worth it! One of the best trad lines around Boulder. You won't be disappointed.

Comments: I got of this last year while in the area after climbing D&T. Excellent face with crisp edges. I remember being a little concerned with the old "homemade" hangers. It didn't help much with committing to the moves.

Comments: First pitch is really good. Pulling the roof is perplexing until you figure it out, then it makes total sense. The second pitch is a bit of a butt clincher. If this climb saw more traffic it would clean up a bit.

Comments: Yo Hank, that was me with my bud Joe V. Thanks... I was checking out Sheer Terror when I was over there and got sweaty palms just thinking about you up there! Nice one dude... I was actually thinking about getting on "Scotch and Soda" sometime soon. Sounds pretty exciting!

Comments: This is one of my favorite climbs in Eldo. The climbing flows really well with just enough spice to keep your attention.

Comments: Nice job! I was walking out of the canyon on Monday about 6pm or so and saw you coming down. I guess I just missed the big show.

What ever happened to Skip G?

Comments: Wow, It's probably been about 8 years since I led the 4th pitch and I forgot how committing it is. I certainly wouldn't want to fall doing the move. Spicy.

Comments: No question about it. This is one of the best climbs around. Spectacular from start to finish! The last pitch is truly amazing. Great movement and position with just enough spice to get your pulse racing. I could climb this route everyday for a month and never get bored. Awesome day Guy!

Comments: Just got back from Turkey Rocks today. Right now you will need a high clearance 4x4 to get back to the campground. I watched a couple of guys in a jeep get stuck in a drift. This jeep was tricked out with a lift kit and pretty aggressive tires too! I parked the Subaru and walked in. I figure if this warm weather continues that by next weekend you should be able to get back in there with a low clearance 4x4. It will still be at least a few weeks before normal 2 wheel cars can get in there. ... more >>
