North America, United States, Colorado, RMNP, Various Ascents

RMNP, Various Ascents. Jack Roberts and an Icelander known as “Helgi” climbed Field’s Chimney (WI4 M6). The route, which has thin, steep mixed climbing, came in after not forming for the past eight years. Will Gadd and Marc Twight linked Scobinger Crack to Eubanks Chimney to upper Kieners to create a 5.8 WI5 M6 route. In the Loch Vale area Dave Sheldon put up Free Strike Zone (WI5 M7+R). Fifty feet of steep granite protected by three bolts and several camming devices lead to a runout on a detached icicle to form the line.
