Average Rating = 0.00/5 Following First Pitch of Calpyso

My wife styling through the crux section of the first pitch of Calypso in Eldorado Canyon. This is such a classic route!

Hanging belay on top of the Three Graces

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Hanging belay on top of the Three Graces

What a trip! After groveling up a narrow fin of the scariest, most crumbly rock I've ever experienced, I was pretty stoked to get to this bomber belay station.

Taking a breather . . .

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Taking a breather . . .

This route is technically easy, but the rock reminded me more of a sand castle than anything permanent. Totally bitchin'.

Shield Your Eyes!

Average Rating = 3.25/5 Shield Your Eyes!

Young John Borland and his famous suntan, cruising up Physical Attraction on the Zulu Wall. This is a nice little trad pitch, with a very short approach.

Rich on Magellenic Cloud

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Rich on Magellenic Cloud

Richard Decredico on the Magellenic Cloud. Sunnyside is a great crag, and this route is of particularly high quality, even if it is a little stiff at 5.9. It is easy to set up a toprope on this route by climbing Shady Ladies or Van Allen Belt (both 5.7).

Why I'd Like to Live in Boulder

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Why I'd Like to Live in Boulder

My wife and my brother-in-law, sorting out gear after the three of us climbed The Spy AKA the First Flatironette. The accessibility of so many moderate trad classics in the Flatirons really got me excited about moving to Boulder. Someday . . .

Stephen Stemming up the Easy Book

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Stephen Stemming up the Easy Book

Just a butt shot, but this sure is a neat route. Lots of fun on solid stemming up this chimney.

Skilak Lake Dome

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Skilak Lake Dome

This dome is about 20 meters tall or more, plenty big for several routes. Skilak is a really pretty lake, and appears to have potential for some good climbing. The rock formation is the McHugh Complex, which is the same stuff we climb on the Seward Highway. It kind of reminds me of Boy Scout Rock. There is no established climbing reported here yet. Potential is probably for sport climbing, and mostly accessed from a boat.

Talus Rock from Diamond Parking

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Talus Rock from Diamond Parking

Just a low-res photo to show where Talus Rock is located. Dashed line shows the best approach (up moss, not talus!) Best parking is at the second pullout after making the final turn into upper Archangel Valley.

Photo Topo of Pulp Culture Area, Fatal Attraction Wall

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Photo Topo of Pulp Culture Area, Fatal Attraction Wall

Okay, best guess is that the "5.8" corner marked on this topo is actually Black Dog 5.10a. This is pretty small, if you want to see it bigger, check out my pdf of Hatcher Pass topos.

Monolith Topo

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Monolith Topo

This is a topo that I have put together using Mark Hall's internet guide along with Whitelaw and Pollard's guidebook. I also have updated it a little bit based on first hand knowledge. This is pretty small, if you want to see it bigger, check out my pdf of Hatcher Pass topos.

Webfoot Area Crags

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Webfoot Area Crags

This photo shows most of the crags in the area of the Webfoot Mine. One not visible is the Aurora Slab, which can be accessed by hiking up the mossy gully between Yellow Brick Road and the Gatekeeper. The slab will be obvious on the right side of the gully. This is pretty small, if you want to see it bigger, check out my pdf of Hatcher Pass topos.

Photo Topo of Yellow Brick Road

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Photo Topo of Yellow Brick Road

I've superimposed the one route on this crag that Mark Hall shows in his guidebook. I believe there's potential for a couple more routes, they may have already been done since Mark finished his guide. This is pretty small, if you want to see it bigger, check out my pdf of Hatcher Pass topos.

Coldclimb on Festoon

Average Rating = 3.62/5 Coldclimb on Festoon

Ben, John and I happened to hit Archangel on a sunny weekend; we don't get more than a handful of those all summer up here. For some reason, we decided to climb on the Diamond, where we were in the shade all day. Due to a crummy topo, we were only about 80% sure we were on the right route, but John gave it a try anyway. This 5.9 starts on a really cool flake, but finishes up on some tough stemming and vein pinching.

Aurora Slab

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Aurora Slab

I was poking around up by Webfoot, one of the things I was looking for was Aurora Slab, which I had heard of but had no idea what it looked like. According the the brief description in this database, I think this is the slab. It looks fantastic in real life, this photo is just real crappy. This is pretty small, if you want to see it bigger, check out my pdf of Hatcher Pass topos.

I modified this from the online guide. This is as updated as far as I know right now. This is pretty small, if you want to see it bigger, check out my pdf of Hatcher Pass topos.

The question mark stands for agony.

Average Rating = 3.82/5 The question mark stands for agony.

Here is Dr. Kodos pushing through a tough mantle move on Mr. Freeze's Face. This route is given a rating of "5.10?" in Todd Swain's guidebook. Loose rock, poor protection, and blank patches combine to make this a serious lead. I think Rich would argue that the route is tougher than 5.10!

Bridge Mountain with Snow

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Bridge Mountain with Snow

This was taken looking back at the west face of Bridge Mountain after my dad and I just finished the scrambling route up the peak. It had just started to snow as we got off the steepest sections. Lucky for us, the route would have been a scary downclimb if it was slick. If you know what you're looking for, you can spot the 3rd class scrambling route and the natural arch on this face.

Traverse on Lark Mountain

Average Rating = 3.82/5 Traverse on Lark Mountain

This is my dad leading out a short traverse to bypass a steep section of the Lark Mt. ridge. It doesn't look so bad in this photo, but the scary runout below us convinced us to rope up.

Lunch Break on Lark Mountain

Average Rating = 3.20/5 Lunch Break on Lark Mountain

Not an action photo, but it clearly shows what a beautiful day it was. In March 2003 my dad and I spent two days on Lark Mountain near Moose Pass. We didn't get to the summit but we did some fun climbing and had some wonderful views.

The Bridge on Bridge Mountain

Average Rating = 3.50/5 The Bridge on Bridge Mountain

I was actually pretty suprised when my dad and I stumbled upon this. I had been under the impression the mountain was named after a man with the last name Bridge. This is a pretty big (~30 feet high?) natural arch near the Hidden Forest on upper Bridge Mountain.

Faust on Panty Prow

Average Rating = 3.64/5 Faust on Panty Prow

This is me on Panty Prow, a really fun bolted 5.6 at the Panty Wall at the First Pullout. It was a beautiful day in January when the temperature was just right. (Yeah, I'm posing a little, I didn't realize how goofy it would look!) My wife Abby took this photo.

Mt. Alice

Average Rating = 3.50/5 Mt. Alice

Seward's small boat harbor is in the foreground. Picture was taken in December. The standard route is up a couloir through two rock bands on the sunlit face (southwest).
