Description 

The Breakers form the Southwestern edge of the Granite Sea formation. There are currently fourteen recorded routes - many established in the mid-eighties by the likes of J. Brink, C. Luebben, and company. This is definitely the largest concentration of hard lines around Greyrock. For the most part, the rock is solid and of high quality; with more traffic these routes will clean up nicely!

Getting There 

Follow the Greyrock summit trail until it touches the main formation. From here, head east (bushwhack) and descend slightly to gain a large lege system. Continue traversing to the main cliff band.

The Medusa is a bold and aesthetic line line up the beautiful slab on the eastern end of the Breakers. The route is immediately left of an obvious roof-crack called Fisticuffs (10c). Props to J. Brink and P. McGrane, this route is a gem and a proud send.Bouldery moves over an initial bulge gain the first bolt (an old rusty hunk of metal). Enjoy excellent climbing up quartzite, passing two more bolts. The crux comes shortly after the third bolt and involves thin friction moves to gain a sloping h...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
