Location: WY : Vedauwoo : Reynolds Hill : Finger Grinder (5.9)
By: The Blueprint Part Dank When: Sep 22, 2014

Comments: I really felt like this was significantly harder than either Pooh's Corner or Climb and Punishment, both of those routes feel like accurate 5.9s to me, but Finger Grinder was significantly more difficult. Now, I think this is due to two factors, one, being that I have huge hands and fat fingers, so the finger locks were super tight for me, a couple were almost unusable. And two, the rock quality on the faces surrounding the crack was just utter garbage with lichen and loose, sharp crystals. A go... more >>

Comments: Lolz @ 5.9. It's a 10-, and I have huge nasty meat clams for hands. Smaller hands folks without a bit of true grit, have fun.

Comments: Spoiler alert....

Are you still here?....


Are you sure?....


I warned you....

The inverted calf jam is the shit, crank super hard on the under-cling fist jam with your right hand, and then use your left to assist your foot into the right position if you aren't the most flexible person in the world (like me). Hook your left leg over the constriction and do a sit up. Choose your own adventure from there.

Comments: Soloed this on 8-6-2014. I was in Crested Butte with some family visiting from out of town, normally, I'd have balked at paying $20 for a lift ticket to shorten an approach; however, since my parents paid well, I wasn't going to argue.

From the top of the Silver Queen lift, immediately cut south into a thick patch of pine trees before exiting out onto the talus field. Compared to RMNP talus fields, I found this one to be a bit looser, and even some of the bigger, flat boulders shifted... more >>

Comments: Phenomenal 5.4. Probably the best first lead for anyone ever, or, as I like to do, mix it into your Boulder Canyon soloing circuit.


Location: AL : Steele : Graham's Crack (5.8)

Comments: This is a great route, lot of variety. But it's a super soft 5.8 if you have any crack technique. The original grade(?) of 5.7 seems right on.

Comments: Whoa, what a hidden gem. The first two pitches challenge you in such an interesting variety of ways. Sequence intensive finger-cracks and slabs are the name of the game. On P2, when the crack "flip flops" you've got to pull just the most delicate and challenging 5.8 move I've ever done. It's definitely a 5.8 once you commit, but before you cast off to the left side of the slab, you're totally moving by faith and friction.

Then on pitch 3, a nice little Colorado hail storm came in. At first, I ... more >>

Comments: All the moves on this route are 5.9 at the hardest. However I'll admit that on an onsight attempt, it feels much more like solid 5.10, simply because the beta is somewhat difficult to figure out and the steepness of the route starts the pump clock and doesn't let up until the chains. So by the time you figure out the beta, you're way pumped and the jugs up top (and they ARE jugs) feel more like sloping crimpers.

Comments: Great gym with a super laid back atmosphere. I especially love the fact that they allow dogs, and that the only dogs I've seen there are of the super chilled out variety. I think it's cool that the other climbers have had the discretion to leave the pooch at home if it's a bit hyperactive. That particular example speaks loudly to the fact that the crowd at the DBC is respectful, mellow, and lacking in the posturing and attitude prevalent in some other gym settings.

You could throw a rock from t... more >>

Comments: P2 is a little slice of Vedauwoo in Eldo, super rad hand jams all the way, some big, some small, I think the crux could be almost anywhere on the route depending on your hand size.


Location: CO : Boulder : Eldorado Canyon SP : Redgarden Wall : Redgarden - S Buttress : The Flakes (5.9)
By: The Blueprint Part Dank When: Mar 17, 2014

Comments: Super fun route. As the description says, you get two very distinct styles of climbing on the route. Above the Flakes, the face looks incredibly scary and runout, but as you climb up, bomber gear appears exactly when you need it. You aren't following a prominent feature, so if you get confused about where to go, remember to follow the path without any lichen on the face.

This route is one of my favorite single pitches in Eldo, it is not to be missed.

Comments: Hurry! Hurry! This super fun variation to Coors Lite is in fat right now. In my opinion, it was a bit more difficult and hence more fun than the actual second pitch of Coors Lite. I soloed the ice pitches on Saturday and saw this variation. I climbed up to the top of the little pillar but decided I didn't want to commit to the stemming without a partner and gear. So I downclimbed and did the actual second pitch of Coors Lite.

But this variation was calling me, so I found a partner and racked u... more >>

Comments: Apparently this route has been significantly altered by some asshat with misplaced ethical scruples. See this thread for additional details. It sounds as if going to do this climb based on the beta given here would be incredibly ill-advised at this time,


Location: UT : Moab Area : Indian Creek : Way Rambo : Fuzz (5.10 PG13)
By: The Blueprint Part Dank When: Dec 1, 2013

view comment >>
Comments: The "PG-13" start is obviated by a #6 Camalot. The placement is a bit flared, but you can place a #0.5 and #0.75 soon thereafter. The guidebook says to bring #4, and while I was able to place it at one point, it was quite over-cammed and not at all worth taking up route. I would bring more #2's instead. But ideally, you can snag some 2.5's. the upper crack only takes #2's well in a few constrictions you have to really look for, whereas a 2.5 would go pretty mu... more >>

Comments: Such an awesome little route. Unusual for the Creek, this route has a few really nice hand and footholds to break up the crack climbing. I can't recommend this enough as an intro to OW climbing. I took 1 #3, 1 #4, 2 #5's and 1 #6 and placed them all. The second #5 is nice for the last moves, but not necessary.

I scratched out a small plaque with the route name and difficulty ("Way Nutter 5.9") and put it at the base so more folks will notice and climb this awesom... more >>

Comments: Rarely does a route live up to its hype in the way that this did, simply stunning in every way. Thought provoking, sustained, and varied on some of the best granite this side of Yosemite. Is it sandbagged? Probably. Should you care? Absolutely not. If you can place gear well and climb solid 5.9, you'll make it up and down safely. It just may not be super pretty.

I also agree with the suggestion to lead P2 and P3 in a block. Build your belay in the bird poop pod, and have your second build a bel... more >>

Comments: Ellingwood Ledges car to car is no big deal, it makes for a fairly mellow day. If you're looking for a really good day, do the Ledges into the Needle to Peak traverse. And if you wanna be really full value, backtrack from the Summit of Crestone Peak to the South, and take the sandstone gully that drops down to the west side of the peak and hike over Broken Hand Pass and back to your car.

My recommended rack is a single set of stoppers with single set of cams from #0.5-#2. Bring 8 s... more >>

Comments: I found the route to be no harder than 5.6. However, I wouldn't recommend it to the average 5.6 trad leader simply because the gear at the anchors was anything but straightforward. It took a lot of creativity to make bomb proof belays. A #4 C4 would have been nice for the belay at the top of P3.
