Road Kill 5.12 7b+ 27 VIII+ 26 E6 6b  CO : Boulder Canyon : Road Rock
This route is much harder than the 10b rating given in the D'Antonio book. The crux is at the top near the last two bolts where there are no obvious holds. My friend had to aid this section and so did I on top-rope. If you want a challenge, this route will provide it. I originally rated this according to the book, but due to Greg Hand's comment, mountain project administrators upped the rating from 10b to 12. Don't be confused since the guide is wrong....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
