Comments: Thanks for the hardware upgrade on this great route. There's still one old bed frame hanger up high for historical purposes.

Comments: I agree with the other posters, this route is probably not a safe lead in its current condition. Several of the bolts are old SMC STAINLESS STEEL hangers on CARBON STEEL bolts. This is a great route and definitely worth the needed maintenance.

Comments: Not likely, as they seem to keep Rampart Range Road closed as long as they can in recent years. You can call 303-275-5610 and ask about the status, which is a good idea before heading up only to find the road gated.

Comments: Do not stray left on the upper 1/3 of this route as there is a giant loose flake held on by just the tip. There is a small "x" block underneath the really big, dangerous one. This would be a good candidate for a trundle with a ground crew to keep passers by out of the way.

Comments: Couldn't help but notice the parcel of land for sale at right next to Sand Gulch campground last weekend. Some enterpreneural climber should snap that up & set up a Miguel's West. Add more camping, pizza & beer, how could you go wrong with something like that? Then on slow days, just walk over & get some pitches in. Any takers?

Comments: The area was closed off almost solely to protect the microwave towers and their access. Another better, and more dog/kid friendly access to Radio Head has already been established. More details to follow before next season. Recent discussions have indicated that the USFS does have climbers and our impacts in proper perspective and appreciate all that we do to mitigate the impacts of other users.

Comments: It's great to know that there's a true Wondervue local enjoying those routes and getting to know some of the neighbors. As you found through your research, it is on public land and the access is too. We did have trouble some years ago with one of the locals, a guy who seemed to be late 40s or 50s, and he got really bent out of shape, especially when the drill came out. Everyone else was friendly, but the one guy was not a reasonable person to deal with and seemed to have a reputation with the... more >>


Location: NC : Cathey's Creek Crag

Comments: Not hardly a troll, just frustrated with trying to find what appeared from the description to be an easy to find crag. What exactly does "above" mean, up the hill on the north side of the valley, upstream, or uphill on the south side? Like I said, a few sentences about the exact location of the crag would really help. Something like X.X miles west of the intersection of Cathey's Creek Road and US 64 is a bridge across Cathey's Creek, park on the north side of the creek, a faint trail leads fr... more >>

Comments: Mike,

I was able to find the falls after driving back & forth a bit, but the location of the crag was still a mystery & with the June foliage in full bloom and checking out a few dead ends it ended up being a waste of time. A few sentences of added details about the exact location of the crag would have really helped.

Having put up over 500 routes myself, I understand the work involved, but if you are going to post up a crag, at least give decent directions, or fair warning that a crag may ... more >>

Comments: Having been a party to the original excavation, um I mean development of that crag, thanks for helping maintain the place it does have some logistical challenges. Thanks Michael!!

Comments: It would be easier to enjoy this resource if the original poster had put more time into providing actual directions to the crag rather than sermonizing about climbing ethics.

Comments: Josh, the only area that's in any published guide is Devil's Head Rock down along Jackson Creek. None of the other crags are affected.

Comments: If it's any consolation, the bolt hangers are probably spinning more easily because the new hangers are thinner than the original cold shuts. I think I added washers when I upgraded the hangers a few years back, but the hangers could spin more easily in that configuration. The Rawl 5-piece bolts are designed in a way that the hanger or equipment attached can vibrate or move without compromising the bolt itself. If the bolts themselves actually appeared to move, then that's a different story.

Comments: I think if one didn't pick up that the low crux works best by going left on the arete, the route would seem a whole lot harder. I got suckered into staying on the face at first before discovering the much better way staying over on the arete.

Comments: Glenn,

Thanks for noting that & rappelling should work fine for anyone doing the route soon hereafter. In fact, even with single links, our rope was less snarled than what often occurs with Fixe single ring anchors.
