Thanks for all the info, Barry.
The former mystery of these routes is what caused these threads and all this info to come together, so the circle is complete in a way.
I updated the list and the overlay:
Power Line Crag or One Pitch Wonder

If you happen to come up with other names for the left and right routes, I can update again, of course.

Let me know if you do, Jay! Unfortunately, the smoke from the Aspen fire is so thick, I can barely see to the foothills today, but for the last two weeks I've had a great view of the western end of the Bluffs on my drive home.

Hi Clint,

I'm sorry, a couple of corrections it seems, my wife clued me in on. It seems that my right hemisphere just fills in the blanks with no apparent reason sometimes. I do beg your pardon.

The route that I had labeled Kibbles and Bits turned out to be Knobbles and Bits. This route and the route Knobblely Dogs was put up in April of 1992.

It seems that the left and right most routes on the One Pitch Wonder rocks were done in May 92.

The right most route is called The Price is Right, and was done by Chambers, and Bruce Price. Not Bruce Boe as I had originally labeled.

And the Welcome to Wedding Wall route was done in April 92 as well. One thing I do remember is that the late Eric Brand and Herb Laeger(he is still with us) were putting up, with a Bosch, the route that was to the immediate left of the route we were on. I don't think I'm making this part up.

Good luck,

Two-shoes

Bump to hear anyone who went up this winter. Almost getting too hot to head up there.

I just happened to remember, when we first came across that One Pitch Wonder crag, Kevin Ludwig immediately free-soloed the center most chimney and down climbed the right most chimney. It could have been in the reverse order though? I think he did that while wearing converse high-tops. Two days later he free-soloed the Big Swaaa after top roping it the previous day. He shoed up for that one and actually tied his shoes. He used to boulder out some amazing things while wearing his tennies or not even pulling his laces tight on his climbing shoes. He never does anything that rad or scary anymore.

Cool Berry. So between Knobblely Dogs and Knobbles & Bits we have Ledwig Rising and between Knobbles & Bits & The Price is Right we have Downward Dog-Ledwig??? Haha

Thanks for the info. I figured those had been climbed. There is a book to the right of Probably Did that must have been done as well.

PS Berry, You taught Jake well.
