Comments: You can almost climb this route like a dihedral if you keep your feet outside the crack on the arete. I don't feel like I learned as much as I should have on this route. It was hard to get secure feet. I'm not a good crack climber, but I was hoping to get better. Again, I'm not fond of the walk off.

Comments: I thought the walk-off was almost as heady as the climb. Otherwise, a must do for the trad-newbie.

Comments: Good for some morning to early afternoon shade. The left line was the easiest clipping line around a 5.8. I thought straight up was much harder, around 5.9+, despite what the book said. The bolts are a bit far to lead from the right chimney-ish line, but is super fun on top rope. From the top of Boss Method you can access the anchors to Dumb Waiter to set up a top rope.

Comments: This was a very awkward route and I'd recommend skipping it. Rather than chimney-ish, it almost felt off-width at parts. At one point I climbed into the crack and thought I was going to be lodged forever. I clipped from around the corner, unable to see. The route looked much more "obvious" from the ground. I'd much rather climb Boss Method (5.8), The North Face of CEP (5.7) or Period Piece (5.8) for a warm-up or for practice. It's not da' bomb, but it's a bomb if you ask me. 5.8+ because ... more >>

Comments: Good beginning lead, but you have to trust your feet as there aren't as many hand holds on the slab. Would like to get back to sport park for some ot the good moderate routes.

Comments: This was my first gear lead and felt comfortable. Plently of pro and good stances. Though I must of came around the roof funny b/c I wound up using a micro nut to protect it. Good buckets to just heave over it. Short (but sketchy approach). I've had to wait 1-2 hours to climb it because I've had people run past me on the approach and then teach somebody how to climb.

Comments: Try to lead with only nuts. Seemed like a long route and I might of ran out of draws. Would be a good place to take a newbie, but the sketchy approach is best done in rock shoes. Also, not much room on the belay ledge to hog up while showing a newbie everything.

Comments: Mostly a good route to build beginner leader confidence except one real spicy move in the middle, which is why I think the route is more a 5.6 or harder. The descent wasn't too obvious either. Maybe I took a wrong turn.

Comments: Nice first pitch to build beginning leader confidence. Second pitch is easy except for the 10' flaring crack, which is scary if you've never climbed a crack before and you actually have to lead it. I've probably done this route 3 or 4 times, as it's a decent route when other things are busy or overwhelming.

Comments: Between the steep approach and the poor quality rock (for moderate routes anyway), I don't think I'll be returning anytime soon. Seems to have gotten worse over the couple of times I went. Had my first lead here on some sketchy 5.6.

Comments: Great first route, but the start can be a little heady. Otherwise would be a perfect first sport lead as the rest of the route is solid.

Comments: There are some new routes in the area since the RMNP/Estes Park book. I think we wound up on a route to the right, which got thin. Not very good quality rock. Definitely alpine. I can think of many other more enjoyable 5.7 sport routes.

Comments: DD is in good condition. We started up about 6:15 on 6/6 and had hard pack most of the way up with steps already kicked out. The top started to get a tad soft, but still not much of a problem. Summitted by about 8:30-8:45. We didn't rope up, but did bring minimal gear. If you bring gear, some pickets and maybe some stoppers. Best to just hit it early and enjoy some nice hard, cruiser snow.

We didn't realize that there was a bit more snow climbing at the end of the couloir - you head left ... more >>

Comments: Drove down on 6/14 to Quandry to climb Cristo Couloir Sunday. It's starting to get dry - didn't climb since we didn't know what to expect. Looks like you might want rock pro and we didn't bring any. Didn't look too deep where there was snow. Didn't look like the 30*/class II climb that it's supposed to be. Wish I had taken a picture or two.

While we were in the area, we headed up to Kite Lake / Lincoln Ampitheater. It was 10:30PM, but seems like there was a good route in on Democrat. Awe... more >>

Comments: Climbed Saturday 5/17.

Dug a pit 50' above the base of the climb and the snow was consistently 1/2 of a gloved finger depth for the 5 out of the 7' we checked. Another guy there thought he found a weaker layer around 1' deep. I'm no expert. Dig your own pit.

The first half was fairly cruiser, around 30*+. Good snow and steps helped

There is a trough dug out by lava flows of snow coming from the first right branch. Note a nice cornice is at the top of the first right branch. We saw 4 or ... more >>
