Comments: I first conceptualized and tr'ed this route. Stratego is my name.
I praise the addition of the single bolt and the bold lead that followed.

Comments: This area we named The Gathering, and it was first listed in my guidebook circa 1994, but we named the area and FA'ed many of the problems back in the late eighties.
I did a line left and right of the one pictured, as well as the slanting v-corner on the rock that is behind you when facing the one pictured.
Mr Horan may lay claim to these and I'll give him credit if he did them in the mid-eighties or earlier, but I'm guessing we got there first, not that it matters. Back then we were doing so m... more >>

Comments: Ament's old guide references the author you mention in the description of this route. "As Gregor Samska awoke one morning he found himself transformed into a giant insect".

Comments: I think that Phillips's Problem is that this line was done several years prior to his being aware of the existence of Castlewood Canyon,.

Comments: I was waxing nostalgic and thought
I'd see what has been posted on Carlton Peak on The
North Shore, but was disappointed that nothing has been posted.
Edit: Thank you Chris for pointing me in the right direction.

Comments: Bruce,
Thanks for adding this picture of Cosmic Curt at the base of Fancy Dancer.
Those were special times.
I recall you and Curt introducing me to David Bromberg (sp?)and his songs, Danger Man and Ain't Gonna Be Your Fool.
Around this time Scott Backus introduced to to The Clash.

Comments: I recall having this line so wired (circa 1978-82?) that I downclimbed it ropeless and blindfolded, long before the advent of crashpads.

Comments: Hi Pete Scott,

Good to hear from you.
I am still around and still climbing, though not as often as I would like.
When I can get out I still prefer to seek out virgin stone for the FA, since, for me, it is more creative and adventuresome.
I have become an inbred local in Douglas County, Colorado.
I can see Castlewood Canyon from my front window and Devils Head from my back window.
These two areas consume most of my time, though I do get out of my box from time to time.
I talk to Peter VonGrossma... more >>

Comments: I was bummed to hear that vandals had toppled the top of the Devils Chair formation some years back.
It makes me glad that I did this illustration for the cover before the chair became an automan.

Location: CO : Denver South : Castlewood Canyon SP : Anvil Tower

Comments: I did the FAs of these routes back in the mid to late eighties.
I put the bolts on top.
From the appearance on top, I think I may have been the first to the top of this hidden tower, shaped like an anvil, hence the name.

Comments: It's called The Sub (.12c)
The name is an abbreviation of The Yellow Submarine, from the vintage Peter Max / Beatles cartoon of the same name.
The large flake used as a reat above the first roof is shaped like The Yellow Submarine.
