Comments: This is one killer pitch on great rock. This is a tough one to onsight since there was absolutely no chalk up there. Hidden edges continued to emerge as I climbed higher. However, there is some junk rock just after pulling the roof getting to the first bolt. Once you clip the first bolt, it's on like Donkey Kong until you reach the brown band above. Get ready for some "pucker" action above the 2nd bolt! Classic climb on a beautiful wall.

Comments: Great climb. Mostly good hands with "cupped hands thru the middle section (#3 Camalot). Total classic.

Comments: What a stunning line. If you like #1 Camalot size cracks, then jump on this one. It just keeps on going...

Comments: What a classic climb! I can't believe I've been climbing at Eldo for 10+ years and have never done this one. Wow, I was missing out. The 4th pitch is outstanding. One of the top 5 pitches in Eldo in my book.

Comments: The climbing gods must have been smiling on me today. What an amazing line. Yes, Try to place good gear before committing to the crux. It's a bit heady up there.

One of the best BC has to offer.

Comments: Wow, I had no idea what I was in for on this one. This is one scrappy pitch. I think it requires some good strategy for a successful send. One needs to place the gear quick and keep moving because the "pump-o-meter" is redlining. I'll agree that the second crux requires your utmost attention. Excellent movement and position.

Comments: Hands down 4 STARS! This is an incredible route that eats great pro all the way up. Although, some is quite strenuous to place. Hats off to Briggs for this gem.

Comments: I thought this pitch was pretty sustained. The moves off the belay were a little committing. Pulling the final bulge was strenuous. I really enjoyed this climb.

Comments: I was only able to do the first couple pitches yesterday due to limited time. The first pitch was good but the second was pretty wild. The moves right off the belay were tough. Once thru this, the climbing is very fun and interesting.

Comments: I have to agree that this route is strange and pretty much sucks. I want my fifteen minutes of life back I used on this thing.

Comments: Great climb with continuous moves. Save a little something for the finish because the "pump-o-meter" is nearing redline.

Comments: I'll agree that the first pitch could be a bit dangerous without some patience and good gear placing skills. The crux moves are a bit hard to initiate, but once you stand up aren't too bad. Great climb starting from a neat terrace.

Comments: Fun movement with spicy run-outs. This climb definitely has two distinct crux sections. A 60 meter rope will work fine if you swing uphill when rapping off.

Comments: Absolutely spectacular climb. Great position and movement. Linked with the 2nd pitch of Grand Course creates a stellar line. One of Eldo's best!

Comments: Climbed this variation yesterday evening. It was short and sweet. Fun balancey moves with barndoor potential at almost every move thru the crux.

Comments: Fantastic climb in a truly beautiful area. Nice views of the Chicago Lakes at every belay. When using the standard rap station (shiny new chains), make sure you trend to your right when going down the wall. You will pretty much be following a corner system to the next anchor. Don't rap straight down the "plumbline" from the first rap station. It will deposit you on very exposed ledges with a nasty downclimb! Trend right.

As for the climbing, it was great. Almost every pitch is a gem.
