P.S. I heard that there is a lot of PO to get to and up the chimney - might still need a protective covering Laugh Out Loud

 Don't go making a rash decision.

Yes, you have to bushwack-thrash to get to the bottom of the chimney.
Versus rappelling in as that part is chocked with PO.

The chimney did look clean.

I recommend eating a leaf a day, rolled up into bread.

I noticed an issue in the description of the route  830 "Serpiente de Cascabel" that may need clarification.  The language in the 2007 guide book states that the route ends at the top of the second pitch of "Derringer".  If you ignore the approach for "Derringer" or the route "Bullseye", "Serpiente de Cascabel" ends at the top of the first pitch of "Derringer".

Everything looks good except the anchor listed as one bolt below. It's listed correctly elsewhere.

Regards,

The OCD team

676.  The Buzzard - North Face  5.6 R Start on The Buzzard’s uphill (west) side.  A class four ramp on the left leads to a point partway up the pinnacle’s north face.  Crux moves lead to easy ground, the summit, and a one-bolt anchor.  The only protection on this climb consists of small to two inch gear in a poor-quality crack at the far top of the ramp.

-  The Buzzard - East Face is a route that Clint and I discovered/found back when we were researching the 2007 guidebook. In retrospect, we may well have done an FA up the entire face. I won’t claim this as an FA though on the remote chance that it wasn’t. We’ll leave this longer route as FA “unknown.”


I wouldn't hesitate to claim it and name it Nevermore...

I'll give some thought to the first suggestion, but the second is wrong - I hear about people free-soloing it at least once a week  Evil

No you won't.

You're perfectly capable of it, but it's too far away from stuff that you're much more interested in working on. Just walking there would eat way too far into your unfortunately limited time.

This route is now 5.9 * and adequately protected.


I'll consider that an early Christmas present and I'd go climb it tomorrow for our Pinns anniversary but that ain't happenin'

Doesn't a nice, warm, sunny day in that east side of The Flatiron staging area sound good right now?

It does.

I'm about to lose what is left of my mind.

I updated the Master List to reflect the work and change.

Is it just me, or do your posts seem somehow older, maybe more mature?
