Location: CO : Golden : Clear Creek Canyon : High Profile Wall
By: Kevin Capps When: 1 day ago

Comments: Patrick, I thought the variation up left is a cool way to keep things in the 12b area, since you don't pull any of the crux moves up higher. Pretty cool variation. Not sure who bolted it.

Comments: This routes packs a punch! It's mostly excellent 13- crimping, aside from the two or three HARD moves at the top that make it a serious testpiece for the canyon. I think cooler temps would help with the top. Nice job on putting this thing down, Mike!

Comments: Thanks for bolting the route in the first place, Jay! I look forward to many more years of projecting routes and variations on this side of the wall, including Mission Impossible itself. The right side of Wall of the '90s has some best climbing around.

Comments: Sounds like Layton Kor scrambled up a lot of this stuff long before anyone else got to it.

Comments: I'm sure a lot of people have meandered up the slab before bolts, but probably not the exact part of the roof, and pulling over the roof is what makes this route special.

Comments: Amazing! Great work figuring that sequence out, though I'm not surprised. You are a beast!

Comments: Chris,
I warmed up on this today and didn't find any chipped footholds or change. Still all natural from what I saw.

Comments: A strange anchor indeed. I'm not sure who installed it, but the bolts seem to be relatively new, about 3 years old. It was replaced about the time I added the anchors on CCD and CC. It is much better than the anchor that was there prior to this though, haha, I recall a bolt being cemented into the crack

Comments: Sounds very suspicious, since before they always seemed to be getting worse.

Comments: Train4Life, did the holds get better or worse? I noticed the footholds crumbled about a year ago. So if they got better than that would be suspicious; however, holds do break all the time.

Comments: Tane, I developed this route and added the bolts a couple years ago. The Staff was never a route, just a crumbly face that was much harder than what someone called 5.7. Not sure how it got on MP as a route, haha. Before I cleaned it, the line was unclimbable pegmatite. It's called Man on a Wire, and I did the FA. Glad you are exploring it!

Comments: The upper arete on this route is very fun and worthy of the hike, I just wish it was longer. The lower section, climbing through the hollow death flakes is terrifying, those things are going to kill someone. As far as the grade, I think 12+ is more appropriate, since I did it onsight and I typically don't onsight 13a. Nice job, Scott!

Comments: Nice variation, Will! A fun ending and a better warm up, for sure. The crux, however, is cleaning the route. You will want to follow it to clean it.

Comments: It goes straight up. It was originally bolted to go out left but was rebolted by the first ascentionist. Either way, you are past the crux, so it probably doesn't matter.

Comments: Hey Allen, one is Twitch and the other is a project just right of that, is that what you're referring to? Send me a message and I'll give you some more info.

Comments: I replaced the bolts and anchors on Twitch today. Thanks to the Boulder Climbing Community for donating the 1/2'' stainless steel Fixe bolts. I also trundled the loose flake at the top of the climb, it wasn't hard to pull out either which was a bit scary. Pulling out the large flake does not effect the climbing difficulty at the top at all, it needed to be done.

  • Condition report: the first bolt and one of the old anchor bolts were very hard to take out, so I will be back in the next few days ...

Comments: Thanks! Yeah, it's a tough little guy. Definitely solid for the grade but a little easier than some of the classic 12a's like Wet Dream, AKT, and BDD. Breaking the Mold is well worth the effort, have fun!

Comments: Wow! What a great variation to a great route. After the no hands rest halfway, there isn't a single hold that's bigger than a sharp crimp, and the stone is immaculate. Hard to grade a route like this, but definitely a grade harder than Convicted Felon. The easier end of 12c is appropriate. Thanks, Dave!

Comments: Excellent work, Jay! A true testpiece for the area and a great way to work on a hard route while avoiding the crowds at Primo. I can't wait to get back on this!

Comments: I climbed this and got the FA in 2012 after John put up the sport routes. I'm surprised anyone else got on this. I thought it was seriously dirty and felt more like 10-.
