Tall Talking Midget 5.11d 7a 24 VIII E5 6a  CO : Boulder Canyon : Lion's Den
This is a great little route that packs a lot punch in short distance, hence the name. On the right side of the cliff, just right of a hanging arete is a line of bolts up a very steep wall. Stick-clip the first bolts and make a series of hard finger jams up to a solid handjam. Clip the second bolt and lay-back up a shallow seam, past the 3rd and 4th bolts to a semi-good-rest. Clip the 5th bolt and crank up to the anchor. Excellent and pumpy climbing for such a short route. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
