Short Cliff w/ Three Cracks
BETA PHOTO: Cliff with 3 cracks
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.

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.

: Short Cliff w/ Three Cracks
This is the third crack from the left. I have seen this climb rated 5.9 (Rossiter) and 5.10a (Rolofson). The group I went with couldn't agree, 'cause the start is thinner than Catalyst (5.9), but not as slick on the feet. I would say about the same. Anyhow, straightforward line, fingercrack to start with, then face or crack above that. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
