Updated P-Wall Topo

Dan and Brian getting out while the getting was still good. We went to climb at the P-wall and in the morning, the clouds left and gave us a beautiful day. But by lunch time, our luck was up and it was time to get out!
Brian and I still able to see each other in the thick cloud that covered Mt Evans.

Me, just hanging around on my latest new route, A Vacation from Your Problems.
Taylor came out to check out the P-wall and liked what he climbed on. Here he is at the top of Rocky Mountain High.
The latest topo of the P-wall. There are two new climbs at the base of the wall. The new routes are both mixed with crack gear and a couple of bolts where the wall was blank. The left of the two new climbs is called Baby Steps (5.11-/pumpy) and the right line is called Tenacious P 5.12/technical). I just want to thank J-Star for coming out and rock climbing with me on the routes and for helping unlock the sequences on the two new first pitches to the wall. Now this place is starting to look and feel like a crag!
So a quick summary of the routes and their estimated grades: Remember that just a few folks have climbed these routes and that the grades are up for adjustment.
Back to the Earth 5.13+ (mixed gear to 1 inch and bolts)
A Vacation from your problems 5.13b (all bolts)
Open Arete Project (V12/V13 bouldery 2 bolt route) (all bolts)
Hopeless AKA High Hopes Closed Project 5.14ish (all bolts)
Rocky Mountain High 5.12 (mixed gear to 3 inches and bolts)
Aqualung 5.12+ (mixed gear to 2 inches and bolts)
It's a Homonym 5.12b (mixed gear to 4inches and bolts)
Tenacious P 5.12c (mixed gear to .75 inches and bolts)
Baby Steps 5.11- (mixed gear to 1 inch and bolts)

Get out and have fun, I hope to see you there!

  1. Baby Steps is the left of the green routes.
    Tenacious P is the right of the green routes.
    You can access from the top of the wall with a short 15 minute hike and rap down to the top of Rocky Mountain High and there may still be fixed lines down to the Hopeless project.
    Aqualung and Rocky Mountain High have the same start even though there are midpoint anchors.
    I have also linked It's a Homonym into the top halfs of Aqualung and Rocky Mountain High.
    Have fun out there.
