Right between the two cruxes.


Cirque de Poudre follows a straight line up a tall face, broken up by a few rests. The crux is in the first half, a series of hard sloper moves ending at a good jug to clip off. Up higher is another crux of a different character, which uses thin crimps to traverse right to a crack. This would get 13a if you avoid the crack at the top.


The rightmost line on the face.


12 bolts + beefy, closed anchors.
