|Brown Cloud Rocks
|Access Fund still owns Golden Cliffs property; soon to be transferred to Jefferson County MORE INFO >>>|
This route lies at the east end of brown cloud, just as the cliffs turn the corner. Start up a crack, then move left at a ledge and follow the 3 bolts up. The face moves are committing. Have fun!
3 bolts to a 2 hanger anchor. Stick clipping the first bolt would be a good idea.

I thought this climb was a little harder than Deck Chairs. The climb is short but seems like solid 10.

Not a warm-up 9. I thought it was a solid 10. The holds are crimpy and shallow.

Thank you, Michael, for putting this one on the Web.
We pulled the funky open hook anchor, drilled new 1/2" anchors (with hooks), and replaced the #2 spinner today. Mark Rolofson replaced the missing fourth bolt after this route was posted. A stopper can protect a direct start.

Clipping the third bolt is a bit tenuous, followed by some crimps to easier ground...feels like a 10-.

This is an okay climb. You can sew up the beginning with a quick nut/stopper. Move to the right and lean out for the third bolt. 5.10 or 5.10-.

I'd agree on the 10-...clipping the third bolt is not simple by any means, but the 3-4 moves after clipping the 3rd bolt are the awesome and def. a 10-.
An alternate start to this route (not the crack as in the main description) can be had by climbing the face to the right of the crack, making a bit of a move further out to the right and working a nice layback in a solid crack. :)
