I liked your personal site and I am intrigued by your accomplishments. I have been captivated by those domes in the South Platte. I am going to have to go check on them myself. There looks like some great multi pitch trad climbing over there ranging from low 5th like you did to way too hard. Thanks for getting me excited.

But beware, I posted once of some climbing I did in Dome Rock SWA, and received a nastygram from the DOW informing me how it is illegal to climb in Dome Rock and that I needed to take the web page down. I've been back plenty of times though. I love that area. There's some fun stuff to the southeast of pt 9321 as well, check it out some time.

You guys...

...are way too fast! It took me three trips to get those summits (and I still need Witcher!) As far as Dome Rock goes, it sounds like you did the class 3 route which I believe is totally legal - they just don't want anyone doing fifth class stuff (and placing gear) up there. The only other issue I know of for that summit is a closure of some of the area around it to protect a Big Horn sheep herd. For Dog Head, I took that chimney up *and* down - after backing down from that crappy kitty litter route (and I agree that first pitch is pretty stiff for 5.2 - more like 5.6 at least). Nice job, though, guys - you're killing it in Teller and Park!
