Just right of the huge Rasputin Roofs is an obvious 2"-3" crack. Scramble up the easy 5th class to the base of the crack and belay or continue climbing. Crank the hard entry move (5.10ish) and climb the surprisingly easy crack to the roof. Traverse across the giant horizontal and clip the first bolt.

Either crimp down or throw for the huge jug out and left. Control the swing and set up to pull the lip. Once over climb an easier crack and belay. There should be bolts but the anchor may need a little love. Extremely exposed. A great little adventure.


This route is located among the massive overhangs of North Clear Creek. This route is probably dry every day of the year. Only after a sudden warming trend and when the rock "sweats" would the route be wet. Rappel/lower off the route.


A full set of cams up to #4 camalot. A few quickdraws. A few long runners.
