This line is just to the right of Floater. Start in the higher pod and go right onto a bomber crimper, then match on a single-pad edge before hucking for the lip. So classic. Once the linkup from Pungase is complete, this would be a great finish!Jeff and I can't remember who got it first, since the upper crimp has broken a few times in between ascents.......[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
