Geek in the Creek 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : The Visor
This is located on "The Visor" just up the hill from Surprising Crag approximately 50 feet above Frictionary. This route is the furthest right bolted line on The Visor. Ascend an easy lower section reaching the upper, more vertical section to the anchors. Getting the anchors may be the crux, reaching high to clip before making the moves may be the best, especially for someone a little shorter. It is a decent route, great for intro leaders. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
