Location: CO : Boulder : Eldorado Canyon SP : The West Ridge : West Ridge - part B - Long ... : Next to Nearly (5.9)

Comments: I thought the entire line was well worth doing. Maybe two stars. The first part of the crack may be just an easy 5.7, but good solid holds. The crux, at a solid 5.9, has a great set of moves to figure out, while at the same time only having RPs or tiny stoppers for pro at the crux (fun mental game if you climb at that level). DON'T let yourself reach over to Washington Irving and grab the crack... try to stay directly on the crack and arete and you will enjoy this short thrill.

Comments: As for pitch 4 (which was pitch 3 when we did it), clip the pin and leave your #4 or 3.5 camalot in the car... you would just be taking up extra gear that is heavy and not needed. Don't think of it as an off-width, but more as lieback on top of the bulge/slab and you'll be just fine.

I would also highly recommend combining what is described here as pitch 2 and 3. I didn't find it needed, nor inviting, to sit on a pile of pigeon shit. Just make sure before you leave the small roof to ... more >>

Comments: This route REALLY pushed my nerves for some reason. It's a typical S. Platte runout on tiny friction. If you're like me and really getting into leading 10s, this is a perfect route to test your mental ablility on friction.

Comments: I've been waiting for a long time to get this rock up just so I could add this route... I guess I was just way too lazy after work to bother. Anyways, I can't even say how perfect this crack is. If you want a textbook crack for handjams, this is your climb! A great 5.9 for the Platte.

Comments: I forgot to mention that the rap from the top of pitch 2 is only 80 feet and can be done with a single 50m rope. If you want to rap off the first pitch, then traverse to your left and up a few feet to a tree at the top of Chockstone's first pitch instead.

Comments: I did both pitches yesterday and I would have to say... the second pitch is VERY STRENUOUS, especially after doing such a long pitch before it. Absolutely a 9+, if you are not comfortable climbing 9's then don't try it unless you got doubles in the #1 and 2 Camalots. I also found this climb to be VERY odd from the usual Eldo climbing style. I can't wait till I have more time to try the next section of March of Dimes (10c)... what a cool lookin' crack.

Comments: This is one of the best routes of its grade anywhere. You gotta love how the holds keep shrinking until you find that huge pocket, and the start is cool, too!!

Comments: When I did this, I definitely thought 5.9, but no way does it reach 10a. I thought the crux was hard, but once you find the hold, which can be hard to see at first, then [it's] really not bad at all.

Comments: There is one move on it that is MAYBE a 5.7, otherwise I would give it more like a 5.5. Rossiter gives this one a star, I'm not sure why. However, this would be a great route for beginners that want to set up a top rope. Hike around to the left and carefully follow the top of the rock around to the right to a tree with slings.

Comments: Another great variation for the 3rd pitch is to take the right side roof, which is actually West Face route. I thought is was the better one of the three choices, all of which end up in the same place. But a word of warning, just when you start up into the roof, theres a horn sticking out that is a must to make the move... it EXTREMELY lose and sounds like its about to snap. Other then that, its an awesome pitch!

Comments: What an amazing route! You don need two ropes IF you happen to have a 70m rope. I was able to get down just at the ends of the rope with a 70m alone. You sure are right though about stoppers... bring doubles in small and medium sizes and leave most of your cams in your pack.
