Comments: Super good route. Everything was straight forward and as expected. We spent one night on the wall 2 pitches from the top. The jarret finish was super fun. steep and great positioning. the missing bolt just added some fun as the gear going out the roof is great and a fall off of a hook move or two would only be a sweet ride over 1200ft of fun. Add this route to your list as it should not be missed.

Comments: Yesterday I left some gear on what is considered the first free belay. Just below where the finger crack starts. There was not much there to rap off of nor belay. A manky pin and a bolt. Probably wont make it long but I thought I would post it up in case anyone wanted to try to give this a go. Makes a bail a bit easier. Also could make rapping the first 2 pitches with one rope to avoid tagging one.
I have not be above that, so if it could be done with one rope I am not 100%.

Comments: I clipped off Gatch's beta.
There is a big ol foot out under the roof to the left that made this much easier.

There is probably a drilled pocket on every climb on this wall. Nature of the beast at the dong wall.

Comments: This description is right on. The first 40 ft are ok at best. This route has to be really fresh. There is crap peelimg off everywhere. And the top of the route is just doodoo. We bailed below the last 3 bolts as the route seems to end and the rock turns to shit.
Not sure on this one.

Comments: We put up two routes on this face back in 2001 as well. Not as clean as this listed route but worth doing if you need somthing else to do.

One route started down and right of the standard route under a big capped roof that can be climbed and escaped left. The line pretty much tells you where to go from there.

The line on the left was a bit more obscure, so I won't give directions on that :)

Fun face to get out, away and up.

Comments: Jesse.

I think we met the day I shot those pics of Trevor on Calvary. Anyways. Make it happen. I do not know enough of the surrounding area besides MN w/Love and Calvary. I just wanted to get it rolling.
Have it out. Your baby.

I can just delete my area and you can rebuild it as you see fit.
I dont delete it until you get somthing else rolling. I PM'd John who should remove my area so you can build it up as you see fit.

Comments: This was there in november of last year.
Didnt look like a hoax to me. We tried to actually cut him out. I am not sure what date this photo is from. from the looks of it, it was before we went up there. We cut the ratty old fixed line on the slab below and replaced it with a fresh static line. None of us wanted to put our hands on it. one of the legs was wrapped super tight as if the animal struggled so hard it cut into him or somthing.
I think it was big horn sheep or mt goat. Which I have se... more >>

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.
