Lion's Den 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CO : Boulder Canyon : Lion's Den
This route is graded 5.9 in D'Antonio's guide and by Rossiter's too, but I thought it was a little harder, maybe 10a. The crack is fairly large for hand jams (Rossiter does call it a fist crack) except in the back of it if you reach way far in. There are face holds in a few spots but not many. This is good because using just the crack would be very difficult. The route protects well yet it was a shock to find something harder than 5.9. Maybe I was just having an off day....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
