  • Description 

    Begin with a boulder problem undercling to the crux at the first bolt. At the 2nd bolt, move slightly right to good holds and another shelf. Place the #3 Friend in a pod crack and a red Alien which leads to moderate face climbing past 3 bolts. Other gear can supplement between the first and third bolts.


    30 feet right of Where's Bob just before a large pine tree. This is above the RTD "The Ride" sign.


    Five bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. 2 red & yellow Alien, #1.5, #2, #3 Friend. 2 long runners can be used for horns.

    A tough start to more moderate climbing. Place a good red Alien at the start and clip in short; the hardest moves are before the first bolt (pumpy and tricky laybacking.) The cracks in the middle of the pitch need more cleaning; bring a wire brush. Fun slab moves at the top.

    I placed two pieces before the first bolt. The first was a #1 Friend and the second was a 0.5 Camalot. The first piece occupies a hand hold but inspires confidence.
