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.

Go climb this route. Possibly the best 5.10 trad line at Greyrock! Instead of the usual thin-face moves and slab-slithering, this route involves sustained lie-backing, face climbing, and jamming! I also thought this route was really solid (hard) for the grade.Start up easy ground to gain a thin, finger crack, lieback up to the obvious bulge, work your way left to gain the left-leaning dihedral roof, and follow this to the break midway through (Frightline Roof - 11a - takes the first crack throug...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
