First time I climbed it you could park right there and belay from your bumper.

wow, it was a long time ago but I wanted to sign the log because this route left an impression on me. One of my first multi-pitch climbs and I wasn't much good at crack climbing. Got whupped but made it to the top eventually (after being passed by a free solo guy).

Hit it in the am on a day that was supposed to top 85 degrees only to find it 97 degrees when we reached the car. Great line, but actually slick and not that fun compared to others in Eldo.

Finally got to experience this Eldo classic. Finished with the Ament Variation. Scrambled to the summit of The Bastille from the top of the route (which was very cool but very exposed and 5.0ish).

Nice day on the Bastille. Never been on it before and enjoyed being the only folks on the route. I see why this is such a classic but wish it wasn't so polished. Could be loved to death someday.

Had done P1 before. Onsight free soloed the upper 4 pitches. All together in about 10 minutes from bottom to top at sunset. Life is good!

noahs213Superb route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 2, 2010


Pretty easy. I've heard a lot of people say the climbing is a lot harder since the rock is more polished. But it was not bad at all. Good 5.7 lead. Protect the start. Don't skip out on gear at the start. That's how many have died on this route. The protection is so there.

Fun climb in the afternoon with Colin. Climbed it in 3 pitches, I led summit pitch. Rained and thundered right above us for about 10 minutes on pitch 2.

Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2009


I try to do this every time I am in the area. It's that fun. Gets a little more polished every year. 30 min wait. Caught one group at top of first pitch. The group behind caught us (two mins) never saw either again. Waited at base for over an hour after hanging out on the top for half an hour. Hope they are o.k. I'll be back.
