Start down low in a crack/side-pulls just left of "Midnight Express."

From the low start work your way up the steep lay-back crack on bad feet to jugs higher up. This is a cool line that makes you fight the classic barn door that could toss you into space.

Fun and powerful this line still needs some cleaning but worth the effort to send.


Located on the "Midnight Express" boulder. It's the steep crack left just left of the famous "Midnight Express." The boulder is found hidden in the trees on the southern hill side that is across the river from the "Castle Rock" formation.


Lots and lots of pads and a few spotters would be best!!!

This is a really fun line that should not be missed. I feel it does not get the attention that it deserves since it's located next to one of the hardest most classic lines in Boulder Canyon.

A friend and myself worked on this problem for a little while today and found it to be a technical, powerful, steep and overall entertaining problem with a very committing finishing top-out. I plan to go finish this one soon and I encourage others to go check this hog out!!! BRING LOTS OF PADS AND SPOTTERS!!! THE LANDING IS ROUGH!!!
