Cross Country V5-6 6C+ PG13  CO : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : The Cross Block
Climb the north-west prow/arete via crimps and side pull pinches to a small shelf. From here, continue climbing straight up. Don't deviate too far left or the top-out officially ends on another line.So, continue up onto easier, but spookier climbing above.This climb is still very dirty but will clean up nice. I would have given it 3 stars otherwise....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
