Maren1My first Rock Climbing on the Whale's Tail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2009


First time climbing on rock and not in a gym. Climbed a 5.2 slab on the Whale's tail. Real rock is harder than going to the gym.

Climbed the first pitch of Bastille Crack (5.7). I also climbed the first pitch of Recon (5.4) on Wind Tower, and finished out on the last pitches of Reggae (5.8) after traversing over.

Awesome place. Didn't do any technical climbing, but spent quite a bit of time here.

Did some bouldering here, but would like to hit up some low 5th class routes as soon as they make a harness that fits me or as soon as I grow into the ones available. Need better rock shoes as well.

Mary and I stopped to climb at Eldorado Canyon as the first stop on our road trip in 2007.

Bastille Crack (II 5.7, 5 pitches) -- July 5, 2007 -- We climbed this ultra-classic route in 3 pitches by linking P1/P2 and P4/P5. Really fun climbing, varied moves, and unlike anything we'd climbed before. The crack on the first pitch definitely got my attention, but otherwise, easy cruising. The descent was easy and we had a nice lunch by Boulder Creek at one of the park's picnic areas. The lack of any approach and the easy descent makes this an especially good route.

Yellow Spur (III 5.9, 7 pitches) -- July 6, 2007 -- A fantastic climb with lots of difficult climbing. We got to the park at 6AM, hoping for an early start to beat the heat (90 degree forecast). The first pitch was really difficult, mostly because I had trouble finding the giant bucket to pull the roof. Afterwards, we made good progress and reached the P6 crux just as the sun started to hit the wall. The abundance of pins made the crux seem fairly easy, but then I tweaked my pinky finger on the Robbins Traverse. The last pitch was EXPOSED and run-out...very exciting. The descent was a piece of cake, following the Vertigo rappels.

Eldo is scary! got to lead my first pitch w/gear; the easy easy west crack. also got to follow Rewritten w/Great Zot, Calypso, Windy Corner, and a couple others. Awesom place w/wild exposure & tuff routes.

I really enjoy climbing in Eldo. Some of my favs are Tagger, Star Wars, anything around Cadillac Crag and of course Bastille, my first date climb ever. The best time is during the fall when things cool off a bit.

Climbed this route on Wind Tower. Nice afternoon climb, but we had to retreat fast due to rapidly deteriorating weather...

My only outdoor rock climb, to-date, with my friend Arthur. Fun, easy climb, but had to rap quick due to quick-moving thunderstorms which overtook the area.
