Comments: Super sweet problem.

4 pads and this problem is close to a gym problem. A good spotter or two and you should have the noggin to rock out the mantel. I have pitched back first numberous time before completing the problem and have not been faced with death :)
It is possible to mess your self up so stack your padz right.

Don't give up on this problem. The day you finally rock that mantel over is quiet an uplifting experience.

Not too bad though. I do not think you will die if you botch it. From the fall anyways.

Comments: For what it is worth to anyone going up to proj on some of the stellar lines on the upper face. You can rap to the ground from the anchors at the base of Rampart Rage to the ground with one 60m rope. This is with ROPE STRETCH though. So know that you will be hitting the ground with your toes as the end of the ropes hit your belay device.
Totally casual though.

Comments: I found this route worth doing for sure.
Short stout crux. Good crack before that and sweet climbing finishing on Elanor.
Was worth doing for sure.

Comments: Thats pretty weak.
Why dont you at least rap out of the second story anchored into the laundry machinces or somthing.
Maybe that is just a hippy CO thing to do though.
At least we get air under the feets though.

And is that a static line?
You must be an extreme rappeller.

Comments: I think you may have been off route from the Empor for sure.
The direct 5.8 finish to the Empor is very obvious from the v-slot ramp. If you belayed after turning the corner left on the first pitch of the Empor, there would be a 12 foot crack running straight up. It then diagonals right for about 10 ft then heads up a smaller corner diagonal left. It is very straightforward. If my memory serves, you may have been on the face left of this crack. Not sure what that is. Either way. I wouldl go back... more >>

Comments: Who the hell posts a route with 4 pitches and then only informs users of two of them????

Wassup Aki???
;)

P3 did not look attractive to me. P2 on this route is super sweet. Good rock, solid holds and perty colors.

Comments: I guess I just wanted to validate the danger of the block and see if you would mind. I was up there with Doug Madara yesterday and did not really want his visit to be a stone trundling bash. :)
We will look into getting up there and cleaning that block. It would be a major bummer for that to dislodge with the amount of folks that climb there.
Thanks for the additions up there.

Comments: Great line.
But rip that flake out.

Bob.
Come on...
So two people of have yarded on that thing. It is only a matter of time before that thing kills some one below. I climbed the route as you intended Bob, but I scoped that flake out. It is pretty scary in my book. It should have been part of the cleaning process. We all know how much traffic these routes will get.
Much Respect.

Comments: I would say the 5.10 variation straight up from where over nighters position their haul is much better then the 5.8 to the left. It is more straight forward and takes much better gear then the sandy traditional start. Would be much easier to aid through as well since it actually takes gear the whole way.
Cheers

Comments: Hey Chip.
That is what I had thought it was. Bob Horan's book is a little vague with the photo on this route and has 3 other lines with in feet of it to the left.
So, it was a bit confusing to read and try to post. I am going back Wed. this week and am going to snap a couple photos a bit more visible and see what happens.
The Gill Boulder is great, and I think we should have some accurate info on the higher end problems it carries.

Cheers

Comments: I'll go with the first two folks I heard from and keep this route as is with the standard route. I feel it goes at stout V5 or so but oh well. It is a great problem regardless and at least now someone has a way of seeing it.
Thanks for the input Adam.
Cheers

Comments: I think I was mistaken on this route, and it is actually the Baldwin Face judging from Bob Horan's Best of Boulder bouldering guide.
I posted this photo to help validate this info, so by all means please let me know if I'm out of whack here.
Cheers

Comments: A 60m will make it in one pitch as well. Just leaves you a bit short on the raps. A 70 would be ideal cause then you can rap to the first pitch anchors of A.F.
pump fest in one long one for sure.

Edit***
We climbed this again yesterday with one 70m.
Rappelling from the top of P.2 the knots in our rope were only about 8 ft down and to the right of the anchors top of P1 for athletes feet.
I advise a 70 or 2-60s to avoid any big swings.

FYI- There is now a fixed red TCU top of the 2nd pitch crux... more >>

Thats just sillyness.
