I-70 climbs past the rope sling down low and over ...

Description 

I-70 is aptly named for its proximity to the highway but not for the amount of traffic it receives. This obscure, quality line features nice rock, and hard, engaging movement.

Scramble up some choss, and traverse right across a ledge to reach a long red rope-draw hanging from the first bolt of this route. Climb up to a large horizontal pod, and then make a semi-hard crimp move to gain a large flake which leads to a great rest below the "business". Pull past some decent edges, get setup on double, flat underclings, and move over a small roof following a finicky series of crimps to a horizontal break and prepare for the crux. Lieback off a tufa feature to reach some gritty holds, get setup on a testy undercling, and paw your way past some really toothy, sharp rock to the end.

Location 

Downhill from Kor's Corner, just right of a large, bolted corner. The first bolt has a long, red rope-draw on it.

Protection 

Bolts with two anchors equipped with rap rings.
