This is the main hang at the Narrows, with the cleanest rock and the longest pitches. It's essentially a 20-foot-wide corridor with water-polished granite walls on either side. There is one sport route here and the rest is trad. All the routes have bolt anchors. Bring a 60-meter rope.
Follow the approach trail as described for the Narrows area overall. About 20 minutes up the trail, you'll dead end right below a nice, 90-foot-tall slender buttress with little seams up red granite. Head right under this buttress and across talus, aiming for the obvious corridor 100 feet away, to the southeast.

This is right of two sport routes in this part of the Narrows. From the hump at the top of the corridor, descend the slippery, nasty slope toward the road. This climb takes the line of 8 bolts up the middle of the diamond-shaped face on your right, about 70 feet down from the hump.Boulder up a faint right-facing corner (5.10+) until you can stretch left for a jug and make the first clip, about 20 feet up. (I meant to put in a lower first bolt, but didn't want to interfere with an already establi...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
