Location: CO : Boulder : Flatirons : South : The Matron

Comments: I agree wih George that the "old Mesa Trail" is the faster (and better) way to access the Matron. You don't need to have someone who knows the location, since it's easy to see from a satellite view in Google maps. It begins in Eldorado off the most northern bend of Baldwin Circle. Then it cruises straight to the Shadow Canyon trail/road just a few hundred yards east of the access trail to the rock. Hiking the Mesa trail is slow and annoying due to recent closures of sections of the Towhee Trail ... more >>

Comments: Climbed this for the third time and still enjoy it. But it has been years since I've been on this route and the description could use a few extra points:

Approach for this climb:
Once you leave the Mesa trail, look for the cairns that keep you in the creek bed and to the left side about halfway through. The path is pretty good if you stay on it up to the climb. Minimal bushwacking.

Pitch 5: I did not see any bush (it may or may not be there) and was confused with the belay location. The most o... more >>


Location: CO : Boulder : Eldorado Canyon SP : Redgarden Wall : Redgarden - Tower One : The Yellow Spur (5.9)

Comments: I've been up this route maybe 4 times and still have the hardest time figuring out where that 5.7 traverse at the top of the 5.9 piton ladder is. Every time I'm up there at the location of where the death flake used to be I look left and it looks unprotected, much harder than 5.7, and a ways with no bolt in sight. Rossiter's guidebook marks 2 bolts or pins to clip after the traverse. Anyone have any info to help me out here to do the standard route through the 5.7 traverse? I always feel like th... more >>

Comments: This is a terrific crack climb - maybe one of the best in the canyon. The shift to the right for the top hand crack detracts slightly from the route but otherwise, it's well worth the trip to this wall, not to mention the other nice sport routes to add in.

Comments: IMPORTANT NOTE ON THE GRADING!
There are 3 different grades for this route: 5.9, 5.10c/d, 5.12-. All of them are right... depending on your point of view. The description of the route was created with a 5.9 grade before the whole route was complete. The 5.9 only applies to the first pitch. The consensus reflects both pitches which Matt Juth says goes at 5.12a - put the 3 grades listed together and you get 5.10c/d (this is the most misleading grade of the 3). This was not clear to me and my part... more >>

By: Tim Fleming When: Oct 16, 2006

Comments: I spent a while hiking through the rocky slops by the "cabins" looking for the Infirmary Slabs with very little to reference where I was. The so-called "ranger cabins" are these obscure, abandoned buildings hidden in some brush behind a large fenced area that is on someone's private property just off the north side of the road before the pullout at 5.1 miles. These cabins are often referred to by guidebooks and others, but beware, there are no signs or anything to tell you those are the ranger c... more >>


Location: CO : Boulder : Boulder Canyon : Avalon : Second Tier : ... : Ripcord (5.12a)
By: Tim Fleming When: Jun 27, 2006

Comments: My first 5.12! I pulled the crux statically by having my feet high on the wall - there's a great, little, angled band of sharp rock to the left of the 3rd bolt that makes it easier to reach the jug if you're short like me. It's a nice short route.

Comments: Excellent route - one of the best 5.7s in the Boulder/Eldo area.

Comments: Yes, it's difficult if you're shorter. At 5'7", I could just barely reach the crimp at the crux but was able to pull through finally with the right sequence of moves and careful balance. Very nice route!

Comments: I've read the other comments and I'm short (5'7") but didn't have much trouble at all with any of the hard sections. The cruxes looked scary to lead but once I pulled into them, they were all comfortable without any trouble. In fact, I felt like it leaned toward being a bit of a jug haul for most of the route with the cruxes having solid, big holds. Each 10c crux might be a bit more like 10b but because of the sustained nature, I'd say the grade is pretty accurate. It was a great route with lots... more >>


Location: CO : Estes Park Valley : CO Hwy 7 & Tributaries : The Ironclads : Mount Boner : Smack the Cold Booty (5.11b)
By: Tim Fleming When: Aug 13, 2002

Comments: For anyone climbing this crux under 5'8" or so, the holds just over the roof are very tough if not impossible to reach unless you use a toe hook under the roof in the crack and hang on a good hold (right hand) at the edge of the roof... then you can reach up and grab (left hand) the flake jug easily. Try it out no matter what height --- it's a very fun option to manage the crux this way.
