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.

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: High quality except for the flesh-eating, thumbs-down jam at the crux.

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.

Comments: It's short with an interesting boulder problem start. I found some graceful beta off of a tenuous left sidepull. Foot placement and body-tension are important. I thought it was a better warmup for Lucid Dreaming than Mr. Sandman, for instance. Also more convenient. It was pretty dirty, so I gave it a decent brushing. The bolts are placed well, and the crux is engaging enough that it deserves two stars, imo.

Comments: So for some perspective, if Zero G is V5 and Re-Entry Burn is consensus V6, then Horan Face is solid V6, at least in warm weather. Classic problem.

I removed the draws from Lucid Dreaming today. They're no longer safe. The one with the square-cut gouge in it was on the third bolt that people whip onto when they blow the lip. Several of the slings are showing visible sun and weather damage. Anyway, whoever owns them is welcome to call or message me, and I'm happy to get them back to you if you're local.

Comments: Didn't flash but did it in a couple tries. Pretty fun, although not a classic. Good warmup once you know the moves. V5 feels about right.

Comments: One, awkward move. V7 feels accurate. Calling this rig V5 is pretty funny.

Comments: I do it that way. That sidepull is a jug, and there is no need for the feet to cut loose there.

Comments: It may not be much to look at for some, although the movement is brilliant, and a sandbag. Four-star boulder!

Comments: Sent it this afternoon. Fun problem in a great location. Need to go back and link it into the V5 on the left end of the wall.

Comments: Does anyone have links to video and/or photo-beta for the crux section of PG? The only sequence that we found yesterday seemed pretty hard for 13a.

Comments: Just did this route again, after a three-year climbing hiatus, and it took several tries after a month of fitness training. Then I did it two more times - once as a warm-up, and once at the end of the day. 12a feels more accurate than 5.11. It's definitely not 11b or c. I've climbed hundreds of routes in those ranges, all over the map, so I have a pretty good idea what they feel like. It would be interesting to know how many calling this route mid-5.11 actually onsighted it. I'm inclined to beli... more >>
