This crag is probably best described by its name, except that there appears to be 4 cracks. Too much THC? This is a small crag in the vicinity of the Blob Massif, Bitty Buttress area, Voodoo Wall, which is lower & closer to the road. It is probably worth a visit if short on time, low on motivation, or if you're a wanderer. 4 one-pitch, intermediate routes here on less-than-perfectly-beautiful rock sum up this crag.

L->R these are:

A. Far Left, 9, 1p, gear.
B. Catalyst, 9, 1p, gear.
C. Hesitation, 10-, 1p, gear.
D. Mirage, 9+, 1p, gear.
E. Reach for It, 9-, 1p, 95', gear.
F. B-Line For The Tree Line, 7, 1p, 90', gear.
G. Get Over Yourself, 7 PG-13, 1p, 90', gear.
H. It's Just Rock Climbing , 8 PG-13, 1p, 90', gear.

Getting There 

On the north side of the creek. Park in the lot for Cob Rock; the Cliff is to the north, below Bitty Buttress (or down and right from East Blob Rock). Head for East Blob Rock, and about 2/3 of the way up, follow the footpath to the right. You should run right into the cliff.

Mirage 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  CO : Boulder Canyon : Short Cliff w/ Three Cracks
The farthest right of 4 cracks on Short Cliff w/ 3 Cracks. Very fun crux move getting up into the crack. After that, relatively easy but lots of fun face-climbing variations. I thought this was harder than Hesitation, but they're all around 5.9+....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
