Brian Rolfson manages not to smash his toes.

Description 

This is a short crack line that goes just right of Kid's Climb in a briefly inviting finger crack that opens wider at times. The crux may be not smashing your left toes into pokey rock on the left (ow!) and possibly trusting that top directional.

There is evidence of prior passage with a chopped purple sling at the top.

FWIW, there is no mention of this line in P. Hubbel's Front Range Crags, M. Rolofson's 1995 Boulder Sport Climber's Guide, or M. Rolofson's Golden Rock Climbs.

Location 

This is the crack line that goes just right of Kid's Climb.

Protection 

A few cams, a #11 hex. We used a yellow Alien, red Alien, hex, #2 Camalot, and a #1 Camalot for a top directional. You can rappel off the anchors for Kid's Climb.

This is short but fun. I used up to a #3 Camalot but not the mentioned hexes.
