Granite Mountain Link-Ups Rock Climbing
Granite Mountain hosts 80+ routes (as per Bill Cramer's guide), generally with two to four pitches each. That's a lot of routes for the small cliff that it is. What makes it even more remarkable are it's traversible horizontal features that allow for an exponential variety of ways to combine pitches and create new adventures. If you think you've climbed everything at "The Mountain", try staring at Cramer's guide for awhile and you will begin to see endless ways to link pitches and follow new lines, potentially 7-12 pitches in length. As you envision, and implement such visions, you will find that there are hidden gems up there that you never would have found otherwise.
