My first woody, which I built my second season in Boulder. Habitat Apartments,  property managers would never allow this these days. I called it the Outback Wall. Peppered with Straight Up holds.

Comments: This is an interesting route with varied climbing. It's basically a short, straightforward, 11c/d dihedral to a bivy ledge, followed by two short V6 boulder problems split by a jug, and then a 12a dihedral to the anchors. It's not over until you gain the slab. I'm giving this route 3 stars for the quality of climbing overall.

I have no problem calling this route 13a, although I understand why some might find it slightly easier if you're tall enough to reach the jug without all of the foot-jesse... more >>

Comments: The crux move to the right-hand pinch is a stopper for me. Went out there with Pinklebear. He sent on his 4th go. Great movement. The 5.1 approach is casual. The best way up is the west-facing, steeper, juggy face to the right of SW. I did it in wet, water shoes, a pack on, and a clipping stick in one hand. Nothing to worry about as long as you don't fall.

SW is not a giveaway. Feels solid at the grade.

Comments: This one flummoxed me for two sessions until I finally unlocked a crux sequence that worked. I found no way to make the hand-jam feel anywhere near 12a/b. That rattly jam felt much harder.

Spoiler Alert:

I finally discovered that working my right hand up the arete and moving my left foot onto the glued hold allowed me to reach the left-hand, gaston-crimp out left on the headwall. Once I had that in hand, I got my right foot up on the dike, bumped my right hand all the... more >>

Comments: Got on TDD for the first time, today. I walked away not loving the route, although, in retrospect, I might have judged prematurely. It was hot up there, smelled like urine at the base, and I felt that the climbing up to the crux was less than memorable. The short compression sequence at the top was somewhat interesting, although out of character with everything below it. Maybe I'm nitpicking.

I had no beta going in, and I managed to unlock the crux in a few minutes. Not sure why people are fin... more >>

Comments: I seem to recall the original rating clocking in at 11- or thereabouts. That felt about accurate to me. The heel hook makes everything pretty reasonable.

Comments: Can't believe that there is not one photo of this classic posted here. Time to change that. Went out there, today. Still love this route. Super high quality, classic, Eldo trickery.

Comments: I'm with J on this, Chris. The draws were sun-damaged, and the biners were worn enough to potentially damage rope running over them. The draw on the fourth bolt was curled up stiff into a 90 degree position from the sun-damage. If you can't see the danger potential from the pic, then I'm especially glad that I removed them before someone gets hurt.

As for replacing them, it's not my responsibility, nor am I in the financial position to. LD is not a gym route, and no one asked the draw owner to ... more >>

Comments: Well worth the short, steep hike. There are excellent footholds almost wherever you want them. I found no fewer than four no-hands rests, as well. Soft? Hard? Grades seem insignificant on routes with such high-quality movement. Recently sent it in the rain.

Comments: Excellent face climbing! I didn't notice anything reachy on this route. I'm just shy of 6', with a 3+ ape-index. It felt no harder than 11+ to me. I use routes like Gym Arete (Shelf), Fire & Ice (Eldo), Ricochet (Rifle), etc. as bench-marks for 12a, which all feel harder to me than Cimmaron Lanes.

Comments: The crux beta seemed pretty straightforward (hang slopers, throw right foot onto a good edge out right, reach with right hand to a sinker finger-bucket). Fun route.

Comments: Either a hold broke or this rig is sandbagged, because the boulder problem is easily V7, which would make this route 13a - not 12d.
