Opening moves.


This is perhaps the best route of its grade on the Pass. Chase 8 bolts up the face with some difficult pulls off crimps down low, and a technical crux above a rest at half height.


This is the fourth route from the right on Wild Rock's steep east face.


8 bolts to a double bolt anchor.

I replaced the crux bolt Summer of 2012 with a 3 1/2 inch Rawl 5 piece.

This is a rad climb. Definitely the best on The Pass that I've done. Stacked with difficult boulder problems and nice rests, it climbs a big, inspiring overhang. Might be one of the better routes in Colorado for the grade.
