Though it's only a variation to Convicted Felon, it is quite good! If you're a fan of thin face climbing, this is not to be missed. It's hard to determine the grade, but it is definitely a notch or two harder than Convicted Felon.

Start up Convicted Felon for the first 4 bolts, then step right to a ledge. Crimp and finesse your way up the face for 4 bolts then step back left to the anchor on top of Convicted Felon.


This is between Convicted Felon and Punishment for Shoplifting.


8 bolts + anchor.

Wow! What a great variation to a great route. After the no hands rest halfway, there isn't a single hold that's bigger than a sharp crimp, and the stone is immaculate. Hard to grade a route like this, but definitely a grade harder than Convicted Felon. The easier end of 12c is appropriate. Thanks, Dave!

Got on this route last night and had three good burns on it. It was not until the last burn did I figure out the crux sequence. I think 12c is about right, but I can't confirm until I send it using the beta and I am fresh.

Stellar route I cant believe this went in so recently. Great rock with technical climbing on crimps that culminates with an awesome move to a bucket. Classic one of the better pitches in clear creek IMHO.
