Grace and I finally got in our first CO climbing, and it was both a slap in the face and totally awesome!

On Lee's recommendation we decided to go up and check out Lumpy Ridge, just outside of Estes Park. Despite the rather unassuming name, Lumpy can be best described in WA terms as a 2-mile long line up of snow-creek walls. Impeccable granite, scores of 4-6 pitch routes of all grades. We chose a route called Korr's flake (5.7+, 6P, 900') as our first taste of this fine area.

The awesomeness needs little explanation: fantastic rock with sustained and challenging climbing on a moderately long route! The slap came in two forms: first, Lumpy tops out at almost 10,000', and I had just come from a week at sea level. Second, the nasty 50' run-out up a heinous squeeze chimney/OW on the 3rd pitch! Thought provoking climbing for a 5.7. It felt harder than the OW pitch on Backbone Ridge (5.9), but I didn't lead that one.

We'll be back!

Sounds like the third pitch was pretty spicy, nice work. The photos are wonderful as usual, and the area looks beautiful. You'll have to avoid letting the thickly oxygenated air down here make you soft, but it was nice to see you! Next time you'll have to bring the wife along :)

Bit of a hijack, but with all the nice climbing in CO and so many UWCC alumni out there, should we put up a separate CO forum?

Sorry to contribute to the hijack, but a CO forum has been created. We are looking at you (Grace, Obadiah, Ethan, Jason, any other CC alum in CO) to fill it up!

Nice, don't think I've done that one! Glad you got to check out Lumpy so soon!

Nice! Lumpy is awesome. Glad to see you didnt wait a year after moving here to check it out like me. I need to go check out some of the routes on Sundance. I have only climbed on The Book, but all the routes we did that day were ****.

we just did pear buttress, j crack and loose ends. i'd highly recommend all of them. you know it is a good day when you have to debate the merits of a 4 star line w/ 3.5 star climbing, vs 3.5 star lines w/ 4 star climbing.
