Kira leads FTGC doing the left start prior to the ...
|Upper Canyon access closed - 8p Mar. 22 - 5p Mar. 28 MORE INFO >>>|
This is a relatively new route at East Colfax. It's worth posting some info in case beginners jump on it, because there are some loose things and you may want gear. A bunch of folks were on it already, some pulling off blocks...and there is a scary block on the right. Now, a first bolt has been added.
Climb from the right over a small bulge. Early on before the first bolt was placed, some started from the left on a ramp where one could get a yellow Alien in a left-facing flake. Move up to a tiny overlap to the 1st bolt. You can go left, over, or right of a small tree. Continue up a slab passing a few bolts. You can get a large purple Alien (~#0.75 or #1 Camalot size) before tiny runout to the last bolt. Beware of a large, loose block on the right between the 2nd-to-last and last bolt. Staying left is safer. Clip the 2 bolt anchor with chains.

: the first 4 bolts were placed, and then they ran out of battery power. The cleaning is in progress. The plan is to extend it past the roof.
5 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor with chains. One can use a yellow Alien for the left start and a large purple Alien (#0.75 or #1 Camalot) to supplement the bolts.
Kira does the right start prior to the 1st bolt be...

The loose rock near the anchor has been removed. Unfortunately, the small tree near the 2nd bolt was a casualty of this operation.
