Freaks and Geeks starts in the very back of the cave, and boulders straight out into the start of Tommy's hard route. It's kind of a Supertweek-[style] route, but the line is very obvious and steep. By the time you get to the crux of the original route, you can tell you've done 10 extra roof moves to get there.


5 bolts plus anchors, and a spotter.

Are any of the holds drilled on Freaks and Geeks?

This route has a little bit of glue but no chipped holds. If the bouldering start was 20 feet off the ground instead of 5, this would be one of the most tried 14s on the Front Range. A great job by Cory.

For what it's worth, I never rated this thing 14b. It's probably 14a at the most.
