Comments: I cleaned and climbed the crack that goes through the roofs on the right side back in the early 2000's. Crazy to see how much it's grown over already.

Comments: This route goes into the shade around noon this time of year. 5.8+ seems fair to me, no where near 5.10.

Comments: In regards to Carl's comment, the route raps off a two bolt anchor with rings. You can get all the way to the ground with a 70m rope. Watch the ends though.

Comments: An extra #4 or #5 wouldn't go unused if you brought it. Dogma is the ticket for descending this line. When you get back to your packs, you can avoid going back up into the White Rot gully by heading down and skier's left. On the south side of the wall that separates you from the White Rot gully are two single raps that get you back to the approach trail.

Comments: This route is only about 105' as Kurt pointed out.

Comments: I'm not sure it was overlooked so much as most people probably didn't want to squeeze a route in there. It is a good climb, but probably should have just been left as a TR from Cocopuss. My $0.02

Comments: I'd second Tom's recommendation of rapping down the face to anchors of Welcome to Red Rocks. It's a much nicer pull. Also, the anchor at 100' is no longer.

Comments: If you ended up at the Black Velvet Wall, then you went the wrong way. At the top of the formation, you need to go east instead of west. There are no raps on the standard decent.

Comments: Most likely he's smiling because I'm probably talking shit to him while belaying.

And Ian, it's Cadet not Sargent. He's been demoted.

Comments: These routes are all listed under The Playground for some reason. Not sure which is correct, but they are listed under The Mall by Handren.

Comments: I thought this route was great. It climbs like a harder version of Armatron. The crux is way harder/trickier than the rest of the route.

With more traffic, this thing will clean up nicely, although I thought the rock was pretty good for the most part.

Watch the pull on the rappel from the top of pitch 4. We got our rope hopelessly stuck in the crack and had to relead the pitch.

Comments: Pitch 2 crux seemed harder than pitch 4. The left bolt at the pitch 3 anchor is loose and should be tightened.

Comments: @Mark - I think this variation is Chasing the Lizard. I don't have it with me but I believe that's what it says in Sky Valley Rock. The comment in the pic seems to verify it.

Comments: I liked this route a lot. You can skip the mediocre 1st pitch by 3rd classing in from the left. Save some hand size cams for belay at the top of the second pitch. A #5 C4 camalot is handy for protecting the wide bit on pitch 2.

@Andy- the second pitch anchors of Edge of The Sun are about 120' down from the top. You have to work west a bit to get to them, but they're easy to see. They're visible on the arete after you pull the roof on pitch 3.
