Climbed Lincoln yesterday (30th). All the ice isn't quite in yet and its a bit thin at spots but I thought it was worth climbing. We climbed up the gulley and top roped the top section which was a bit thicker.

There were about a dozen people there climbing but just enough ice for us all. Each group was able to top-rope their own section.

climbed Lincoln for the second time this year. The ice is more solid. Definitely worth the drive now.

Is it true that there is a 7 pitch bolted line in Royal Gorge? Anyone have any info on this?

and. . .

Is there any climbing around Castle Rock aside from Castlewood Canyon and Devil's Head? I may take a job there but I want to do it if it will not interfere with climbing. I guess Colorado Springs isn't too far. . .

m_s, if you're thinking of the same route that I'm aware of in the Royal Gorge it's only open for a speed climbing comp held during the festival that takes place down there every year. Too bad it's not open to the public because it's supposedly a moderate 9/10a.

You must really have ice on your mind if you're looking for rock beta in this thread. :wink:

As far as I know the bolted line in RG is only open for the GO FAST games in early Oct. Not sure whether non-participants can jump on it but it sounds pretty cool! Dean Potter and Adam Stack did it last year in 42 minutes!

Me again. Does anyone have any leather ice boots they want to sell, somewhere around a women's 9, men's 8, euro 40. Also seeking duo point crampons. (Posting here as opposed to the used gear thread because I want to find the boots locally, so I can try 'em on.)

Damn. Well, the left side of Jaws is in but pretty hollow. Sharpie was leading up the lower section below and left of the cave when he took a swing and caused a 5' fracture. It sounded like an quake. The middle pillar still is not touching down. Screws were going in but not much was coming out the other end. grrrrr.

Has anyone been to Grace Falls in the Park? Is it in? Is it worth checking out?

Can anyone climb ice on Sunday in RMNP, maybe Loch Vale or Grace if it's worth it? Would rather not leave Denver before 6 but I will if necessary. I have tools and some crappy screws so we'll need screws. I'd even be up for a recon some place new.

has anyone been over to telluride in the last week or two and seen the conditions of ames or bridalveil? fyi, birdbrain blvd looks like crap so far (the ribbon also). talisman is forming up pretty good too. seven year itch is pretty damn close to touching down. maybe a couple more weeks if we actually get some snow. eureka is the fattest i've seen it this early, just about everything is in, even the rare ones. cascade canyon is in, just a little thin (much more fun that way). the climbs up south mineral creek are in pretty fat too. campground couloirs are looking sweet (1,000 ft of 4+/5).

Anyone going to be around the Vail area in the next few weekends? I have never climbed ice, but have some of the gear needed and can borrow whatever else I need. I would love to get into it (ice climbing that is). I would be willing to belay/ buy beer/ grovel for anyone who would like to show me the ropes. I figure there is world class ice down there in Vail and I should get with it and climb it!!
