the shallowest index/middle combo pocket.  the contours of this pocket really distribute the shear stress across your skin, which is a big help in preventing your skin getting it's a$$ kicked.

Comments: Super fun route. The stemming on the lower half is great, and after you have done it a couple times, you can fly right up it and feel like a hero. The boulder problem at the top had one move on it that really took all of my effort - if you sag the slightest bit it just isn't going to happen. After that, if you can throw the rope through the draw, it is just a matter of hanging on for dear life as you clip the anchors. Not sure what to call it grade wise, it isn't my usual style of route (act... more >>

Comments: I remember this one being pretty well protected for 10a at Eldo, albeit with small gear. You have pretty decent stances, and you can place quite a few good small wires. Maybe go back up and do it again, you might be more relaxed and find more protection opportunities.

Comments: I remember this one being kind of hard a little bit heady (some friable rock). Even the 'easier' sections were kind of funky.

Comments: For the life of me I can't remember that, which is surprising because it looks kind of not well-protected, which is something I usually remember.

Comments: This is a nice, long pitch with really good climbing. The crux is pretty tough if you aren't proficient at manteling.

Comments: Fun route with a cool variety of rock features. Well worth doing if you are in the area. The knobs up high are pretty sweet.

Comments: Has anybody made it up to the TBB this season? We made a feeble attempt a couple weeks ago. Between my wife being gimpy and me being wimpy the creek crossing didn't look too enticing, so we bailed. Curious to see if anybody has found a good way across - it looks like the creek has changed a lot since I was last there a few years ago.

Comments: You should put together a risk assessment/hazard analysis chart for this route. That would be pretty funny - the whole thing would pretty much be red.

Comments: This is another route at the patio that starts out with excellent climbing and protection and then kind of fizzles out. If the anchors were placed at the top of the dihedral, this would probably be a 2 or 3 star route. Unfortunately, you are forced to climb/traverse through munge to get to the anchor on the left hand route. You end up spending more time horsing around on this crap than climbing the good section of the dihedral.

Comments: Kind of a weird route. Sort of a mixed route, yet in the upper climbing bolts are literally 6 inches away from good cracks. Yet, the crux section isn't very well-protected against the rampy/ledgy stuff below. If the protection was better thought out and the route adequately cleaned (bushes, lichen, crumbly rock), this would be a 1 or 2 star route. Half star in its current state.
