Featured Route For Iron Side Wall
The start of the route, the 2nd bolt has a chain hanging down from it.

Twin Flakes 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  CO : Independence Pass : ... : Iron Side Wall
Follow 8 bolts up a steep left angling dihedral. I found this route to be very pumpy with the crux coming up high between the 6th and 7th bolt. Once the 8th bolt is clipped, I actually had to step down a few feet to a decent ledge and keep traversing left for about 10' and then up to reach the anchors. This may have not been the correct way but going up and over seemed a bit desperate for 10b. Rappel with 1 60m to the ground. Enjoy!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
