Comments: I felt the same way on this route during the FA which finished up onto the ledge at the top. This was pre-chains. Sure as hell felt 11+ that day.

Comments: I did my second ascent of this route yesterday. Twenty seven years after my first. Just as much fun. And I used cams instead of hexes and stoppers.
The four of us had the place to ourselves. First trip to Red Rocks for the couple who joined us Great line, sweet times.

Comments: Actually, Kevin, I have had a change of heart. Let 'em fuck it up if they want.
I will be focusing my energy on a new area instead.

Comments: Hangers will be in place until this fall.
Unless you are properly equipped to paint hangers on the wall without making a mess of it, I would prefer you paint none of them. If you must, tan and flat black will be your color choices.

Kevin, yes there have been complaints from land managers and hikers. Every unpainted hanger is targeted. I am not really concerned with causing a rift in our local climbing community. Those that equipped these routes knew what was expected of them and dropped the b... more >>

Comments: They are still up. Not fair of me to take all away for the summer visitors.
This fall they will come down. If those that put them up unpainted in the first place would have been proactive, there would be no reason to be reactive.

Comments: Every unpainted hanger in the canyon is coming down. Paint 'em or lose 'em, your choice. Contact me if yours end up missing. Show up with some primer and paint, and you can have them back. I'll even watch you paint 'em.

Comments: You're right. Somewhere on every Piedra route is a reachy section.
The anchor bolts on the face are to be removed this summer.
My wife is 5'2" and has different beta through the crux. I can't do it like she does.

Comments: The pin was there a few years before you redpointed the route.
My FA of this route to the top (before chains) was in 2000. The pin was there and was placed by Alex Barrows or Mike Clinton depending on who you ask.

Comments: No single move stands out as 5.11 to me, Jesse. Find the hidden jam for a great rest (think thumb down in back of pocket) and the second half is a lot easier.

Comments: The route was originally called By Tor & the Cur Dog. A slight twist on a RUSH tune. FA was done by L. Morton & myself in 94. Good route, often neglected. The top is a lot of fun.

Comments: From the looks of it, I was the last one to do this problem close to three years ago. Bring a brush for this one. Still a classic!

Comments: Having climbed this many times, the route IMO deserves more attention.
As Pullhard said, it is a great route.
