Up one way, down another  Sucess!

Up along the ridge, down through a deep, south facing gully. Class 3 with some Class 4, especially if you get off route.

Via SE gully  Sucess!

Never found any use trail leading to the gully, but getting in was easy enough. Gully itself was very similar to First Creek Canyon, a battle all the way up. Route is well-cairned near the top where it matters. Descended the way we came. It snowed on us, great day.

great rock  Sucess!

2nd time in the area this year, did Tunnel Vision in the spring, and in the fall Purblind Pillar. Both are lovely routes.

West gully bushwhack  Sucess!

Fun scramble, but with a lot of brush in the ascent gully. Straightforward route with cairns.

Traversed over from White Rock Spring Peak  Sucess!

did this hike solo - the ridge traverse from the north wasn't bad; however, the descent down into Willow Springs canyon was a little hairy - especially the second half after I lost the cairned route and the temperature was on the rise. It was good that I had a rope and plenty of water. It was unfortunate that I absolutely "shredded" the seat of my pants while coming down.

Spot the cairn  Sucess!

A good route finding scramble. Went up trailhead along Rocky Gap near Willow Springs parking lot. Plenty of cairns to keep you going and at least 2 fairly tall chimneys.

Not sure  Sucess!

Been to the top 1 time, not sure the route, but it was hairy. Lots of bush wacking and route finding.

Tunnel Vision  Sucess!

I don't think I have any desire to do this route again. The descent wasn't pleasant either.

at least 7 different routes  Sucess!

Man, there are a lot of "non-tech" ways up, though some may involve class 5 and rotten, crumbly ss.

Hi, I saw you mentioned on here somewhere that you climbed Sandy Hole.
Where did you fine the beta? I can't find anything other than the short
squib in the red book. Thanks.

Route Climbed: Multiple Date Climbed: March 14, 17, 2005  Sucess!

Climbed Group Therapy and Sandy Hole. The chimney in P3 of Sandy hole was a lot of fun. Many people do not try this moderate route (Sandy Hole), but I would highly recommend it!

November 23, 2004, Healy's Haunted House:

A very fun route! Probably better than Group Therapy and just a notch below Tunnel Vision (as far as how memorable it is). Much easy chimneys and wide cracks (though face climbing gets you thru. most of these). After 3 times, getting the descent gully dialed...now took us about 35 minutes.



July 10, 2004, Group Therapy:

Did this as a "warm up" climb for the bigger one the following day. Figured if we can take the July heat on a climb that receives sunshine all day long, we'd be fine on the shady Crimson Chrysalis. The climbing was actually pleasant - there were breezes blowing thru. constantly. The descent gully was hot however. Nice, fun route. P1 is kind of run-out but rel. easy (5.6). Upper pitches protect just fine if you have big gear (if you don't most are fairly easy .7's). Linked P3 and P4 into single pitch with about 20 feet of simul climbing (easy terrain, 5.5).



March 15, 2004, Tunnel Vision:

Climbed this fun route with my wife. As far as comparing it to other 5.7's we've done at Red Rocks, think it's a lot more memorable than say Olive Oil or Johnny Vegas. Maybe it's because we don't get to do chimneys very often and this route had more than one. The descent gully takes about 30-45 minutes (no raps required if you follow the right set of cairns) and not 15 like the book claims.
