This route does not look very good at first glance, but hidden in the lichen are some horizontal edges and good crimp holds. The first few moves, protected by gear, are difficult, and in some suspect rock. The hardest climbing is near the first bolt. I went with the guidebook rating for this one, but it felt easier than 11b. It is hard 5.10 in my opinion....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
