A 60m rope is recommended, though not necessary. Start on the ramp at the right side of the rock and work up to an ugly crack. Veer left up a "dirty" section to a large ledge. Take the ledge to the left and climb up between two cracks. Finish on the left crack to the second horizontal crack (crux). Jam up to the top.
Double chains, vs trad.
Starting what I felt to be the crux.

Fun route with the crux IMHO near the top when climbing in between the two cracks. Definitely some real fun moves down low, then get the pump going in between the two cracks. Enjoy the super easy TR set-up.

Crease and South Face are both listed as route #3. Which is which?

This is a fun route, my buddy Ryan and I toproped it. It got kind of cold at about three o'clock, but I'll take what I can get in February. I'm suprised more people don't climb here. If you feel pretty good when you start this, if you move a little farther left from the start, the first moves are more like 5.8+. Still fun though!

This reminded me of Question of Balance in Taylor Canyon, Gunnison. Similar rock slickness, similar length (this is a little longer), similar increase in severity as you go higher, similar failure for me on both (couldn't get the last few moves, glad I was on toprope!).

There was a time in the late '80s and early '90s when it was a crapshoot to find the Brick Wall available especially after 5 pm.
Nowadays when I pass by, it is usually wide open.
This seems to be the same for a lot of crags around Boulder these days. I just don't see many climbers out in Boulder Canyon after work in the spring - summer - fall anymore.
Maybe that's a good thing?
