Description 

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.

Catalyst 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a  CO : Boulder Canyon : Short Cliff w/ Three Cracks
There are four cracks right next to each other on this rock. Catalyst is just right of "Far Left", making it the second crack from the left. Do some fun laybacking (slick feet), go on to handjams and/or face climbing. Very obvious line....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
