It is about 25-28 moves depending on beta. The bottom section goes at about V8/9 and the top section is around V6/7 to a V3/4 topout. It's one of the most beautiful, proud, and pure lines I have ever done. Please go check it out! It deserves the traffic. I suggest bringing a rope to try the top sections before you go for the send. Enjoy!


This is located in Bear Canyon, in the Flatirons, near Boulder, CO. It lies about 30 meters down the wash from the Afro Bush Boulder. It starts on the lowest jug at the bottom right of the boulder. A few moves directly up lead to a traversing section. Traversing leftwards through the physical crux that ends in a right hand cross into a jug undercling off of a left hand sloper bulge.


You can easily set up a top rope on some boulders and a tree at the top of the boulder. Top-roping the upper section is certainly a good idea as it is the redpoint crux.
