New Route at the Outpost - One Hundred Zulu

One Hundred Zulu is a new sport climb just to the right of Western Harlot (WH). It is three pitches (5.9, 5.10a, 5.9) with a 5.3 link to the last pitch of WH if you want to go to the top of the formation. You’ll need 14 draws and anchor material. Descend in three rappels with a single 60m rope. Whil...

Re: western harlot

The climb to the right of Wester Harlot is called 100-Zulu but is not quite ready open to the masses yet. We still have to do some cleaning and there are some loose flakes that have to be barred off. A set of anchors also has to be moved to make it safer. Currently if you fall you could end up in sp...

Dingo Ate My Baby 5.11-, 4 pitch sport

Over the spring a few of us worked on and put a new route at the Outpost. The climb ascends a formation we called The Annex, a steep white wall to the right of Western Harlot. The climb is super aesthetic, with great views. Many thanks to Ben and Alex who put in a bunch of time early on but couldn't...

The big one is gone, it came out easily by hand. I also cleared a half dozen other loose rocks from the bluff, but there are more consitently being unearthed by traffic on the ledges up high.

Re: Sacrilege - Chekamus

Going to be there 9am tomorrow to start this trail. Don't think much work is needed. I only have two hours or so tomorrow but hope to get some hand lines in, underbrush cut and the trail flagged. If you are bored drop by...bring gloves, I’ll have tools. The hike to the top of the route climbs a gull...

Re: South Apron reopen July 5th

We rapped in from Broadway (3x) and checked everything from Diedre to Banana Peel for scars, tree damage or anywhere that the rocks may have come from. Frank took hundreds of photos from ground level and with his little drone. It is strange but tension at the top of the OTR arch literally made the b...

Re: South Apron reopen July 5th

Just got down from apron. Cleared the offending block. No bolts were affected but lots of dust and small debris on routes below the obvious rock scar. Apron open. The sickle still has a hollow block that is only partially attached, but it is no worse than blocks above. I think some of the old guide ...

Re: Sacrilege - Chekamus

I see both sides of the coin here. I will go up there next week and flag and cut the walk off. Maybe that will ease some of the traffic coming down. I can also pull the rap anchors that were used to bolt the heifer and just leave the intended rap anchor 20m further south. There is a lot of moss but ...

Re: Rock fall Hazard still on Apron.‏

I've heard the Apron is closed (or going to be closed) from Diedre to Over the Rainbow. Climbing across these lines to reach the southern routes is not recommended nor is climbing on the Lower Apron. Parks has contacted a geologist to assess the rock fall and, if required, a local company to clear t...

Re: New 6 pitch sport climb - Centurion

Definitely checked out all the options. It is about an hour walk (thrash) up from Rogues, and 50min up from highway pullout across from "Heaven", just down the road from the StarChek parking. To walk down from The Outpost to the pullout it takes about 40 minutes. On foot this is about 10 minutes qui...

Re: New Route Mt Dione

Nice to hear you got up there Bruce and Co. If only the whole route was like the first or top 4 pitches. I just got back from a few weeks of travel and came across the discussion here and on SuperTopo. http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.php?topic_id=1618401&tn=3740 It looks like there were a f...

Heart Fealt Thanks

To the person who took a dump on the second pitch of Millennium Falcon. I realize that __it happens. I've been there! You have a bad 711 breakfast wrap, you are half way up a climb and all of a sudden you are touching cloth and you have seconds to react. At least have the courtesy to lower below or ...

Re: New Route Mt Dione

It is a sport climb. We did the ascent push using only draws. The first pitch off the glacier and the four pitches on the headwall are almost straight up (unlike it appears in the topo) and spectacular +-vertical climbing on rock similar "Fern Hill" Within these pitches we all had different favorite...
