Comments: Nice job, Joe, way to persist, stay focused, and get it done! You must have found some new beta if you think this is only 12b though! Or maybe you're doing some serious sandbagging!? By the way, for parties that don't want to do the Shield, it's easy enough to climb Blows Against the Empire or Peanuts and traverse left to the belay ledge.

Comments: Nice, way fun route, with beautiful huecos scattered throughout. I agree with Scott that the first pitch is pretty run out and solid 5.9 (or harder).... I probably took a somewhat different line than Scott, even though I was cleaning the occasional pro, but I didn't see the "5.8 PG-13" line at all. Lots of thick lichen and the occasional friable bits of rock in places yesterday, but this will be a 3-star route once it cleans up over time.

I thought the crux on the second pitch was that powe... more >>

Comments: Regarding the post above by Vaughne, sounds like you went on to the third pitch of Psycho Pigeon, a great route! There is definitely decent, though somewhat tricky pro before the bolt, including an excellent blue/green offset Alien right where you want it. That section getting to the bolt might be 5.10 PG or PG-13. The crux is getting to the second bolt.

Comments: I think this original photo comment is referring to a possible #3 Camalot where the leader is shown, in that huge flake above the crux. However, I'm assuming you placed a #3 lower at the crux, near the old pin which is now gone? If so, I wouldn't think it would hold there, too flared... but there's a bomber 0.75 Camalot to be had just below that location in a shallow crack under the small roof/lip, maybe 3 feet above the first bolt. The crack is visible in this photo.

By the way, I... more >>

Comments: A friend and I did this in '96 following the topo shown in the current and last guidebooks. He thought it was solid 5.11 or harder and wound up taking a nasty fall at that roof/protrusion about mid-way up... the rock was a little scaly and the lower half that he climbed didn't appear to have been climbed much. Interestingly, the 1999 Rossiter Boulder Canyon guidebook topo shows "11" at one point in this left start, even though the route is supposedly 5.10c.

We later checked in with Dan Hare, an... more >>

Comments: Patrick, that first pitch you describe is the most direct and probably the best way to start the South Face. Turns out it's the (now) first pitch of the Kor Dalke added by D. Light and G. Miller not too long ago. There's plenty of gear down low and where you need it, it's just tricky... bring RPs if you want to sew up the crux. I consider it 10a-PG. The bolted line above is Hasta La Hueco.

Comments: Well now that others have admitted to it, I too was seeking the Braille Book when we stumbled onto Book of Job and decided it must be the one. We had no guidebook and I had only a foggy memory of where BB was. Expecting a 5.8, we had a very light rack with maybe one #3 and #4 Friend as our only big pieces,so lots of leap frogging cams and generally running it out! In addition, I was juice fasting and hadn't had food in 5 days... my partner decided last minute to leave our water at ... more >>

Comments: Wild route and well worth the hike and effort! The first pitch felt like 5.8 R and the second pitch to the saddle felt like 5.9 R to me. I've done it a few different ways, and I'm not seeing the line that goes at 5.8 up there. Maybe we're all sand bagging each other? Either way, awesome climbing with plenty of excitement!

Comments: Matt, please feel free to submit an app to the Park and replace those old bolts. The system relies on people like you to get those bolts upgraded, and the routes that could use it are endless.

Comments: Excellent route with a very technical crux and plenty of sustained climbing. I used a small cam before the first (very high) bolt, and a yellow Alien to reduce the big runout (15 ft?) between 4th and 5th bolts. Without this last piece, probably 10+ PG-13 in this section, which isn't too bad if you can do the crux.

Comments: I agree with Wayne, this was an excellent route with lots of variety, tricky gear, and wild and sustained climbing. There's some bits of chossy rock here and there but not too bad. Glad I was following that day, would be a fairly stiff (and exciting) onsight considering all of the factors.

Comments: Two pitches? Should go easily in one pitch if you're careful about using long runners on the corners. I think a big cam (#4 Friend) can be used to reduce the runout on that 5.8 section to the double bolts. This has got to be among the top 5 best 5.10 pitches in Eldo! Kudos to you for doing it in this heat, I can't imagine what the grease factor was like!
