Follow the tricky hand crack on the right side of the Burly Man start. The start is harder than it looks. Good gear and fun moves lead up to the roof. You can clip the first bolt from a good horizontal jug that you can't see from the ground. The crux is getting from this horizontal to the anchor. Although wild stemming is involved, it turns out to be much easier than it looks.... Listed with the guidebook grade, it really didn't feel much harder than 10+....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Today, I led my wife, Jeana, up a climb immediately right of Cracking Up. Stem an alcove up to and over a chockstone that dams a pond of rubble. Place a #0.5 Camalot in a horizontal. Move up and left to the base of a 4-inch crack in a right-facing dihedral. Place a #0.75 Cam to the left, in a horizontal. Climb crack to top (5.8-). I didn't have a 3 1/2-inch (or bigger) piece, so I placed a wobbly #3 Cam in a narrower space and excavated lichen from a small, shallow horizontal pocket for a red C3. I also excavated lichen from a key right-angling crimp on right wall of dihedral. Could call it "Rubble Rouser."
