after the hard stuff, into cruiser hands.
Have a buddy coming to town for a day that wants to do yellow spur. What's another good route we can do (2-4 pitches maybe?) easily accessible after doing yellow spur in the 5.9 to 10a range?

If it was me, I'd probably do the chockstone chimney rap, then do Body Tremors to Smoke & Mirrors.

If you have double ropes- Green Spur. If you have a 70M, consider Darkness til dawn. Or, assuming you rap chockstone, you could easily pick up Italian Arete (15 feet climber's right after you get off the first chockstone rap) which is actually quite nice, or alice in bucketland (8+ but really fun). Smoke & Mirrors is also excellent, though a bit hard to find the start for.

We just did Green Spur to Rewritten to Rebuffat's Arete back to Rewritten (quite enjoyable). Doubles not necessary. You can walk off.

Do Hair City on the way out. Then Blind Faith if you want more.

Near the base of Yellow Spur.

Green Spur
Grandmothers Challenge

Better get up MEGA early for the YS, it is usually lined up. I'd get to the park by 7:30.

But I would not rap Chokestone, I'd do the Ruper raps.

On the Bastille on the way out.

Blind Faith
then Sunset Blvd. 11b but pretty easy for an 11b.

not climbing
What are the Ruper raps??? that is Chockstone chimney... right?

and you can get off Green Spur with one 60. Just head up left to the tree above Grandmother's and do 2 raps toward Darkness til dawn.

You need double ropes to rap from the anchor at the end of p2 of the green spur (usually done in one long pitch though). Or, as Fossana said, just keep going and finish on rewritten and hike off.

You can traverse climber's left 30 feet to do the g'mas challenge raps, but I have never done it and whenever I have looked at it it looked a little nasty (and adds a third pitch since I doubt you would do it unroped).

Chockstone rap is the standard rappel from Ruper, alice in b-land, italian arete etc. and you can find it here

Not sure what the "ruper raps" are, but I assume they are the same.

Got Milk? How about forearm pump? Tony leads "Alan Nelson's Bulging Belly" (5.10, X) on the Lost and Found Flatiron. Belayer is Mark Ruocco. Photo by Bill Wright, 10/06.

One more option is to do Lower Ruper via the Rover Dihedral as P2. That will go about 5.9 and can easily be done in 2 pitches.

My bad, those are the chokestone raps. What is the name of the rap that everyone says not to take as you can drop rocks on people below?

Coffee after freezing our asses off near James Peak.
The first part of the rappels is the Chockstone Chimney. This gets you to the top of the Upper Ramp. From there the rappels are known as the Vertigo Rappels. That gets you down to the trail.

The Dirty Deed rappels have a bad reputation of being full of loose rock, but any gulley rap is going to be that way. The aforementioned raps are generally on clean rock faces, even though one is technically a chimney it is not full of loose rock.

The intimation is that you're rapping after YS. If that's the case, I like the Italian Arete- Smoke & Mirrors option. Also mentioned were Green Spur and Darkness til Dawn (then rapp), both excellent as well. Midweek YS should be fine for crowd, remember it's in the shade most of the am.


Michelle- did you get hammered by the wind on 3/26? nasty up high.

Mic, I was in CA/NV for work/climbing. We had our share of nasty wind this past weekend at Red Rocks.
