Trick or Treat
|1,668 page views|
Trick or Treat is a fun new mixed route that goes up the right side of the Dan's Line slab.
Start as for Dan's Line, at a flat boulder. Climb straight up the slab past two bolts, and continue to a steep headwall. Move right and surmount the headwall (crux). Continue up to a right-angling crack. Climb the crack, then angle left past two more bolts to the anchor shared with Dan's Line.
At a flat boulder, just left of Hold the Line. Same start as Dan's Line.
7 bolts and 1 or 2 cams (green #0.75 and red #1 Camalots) for the crack. 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks.

The crux feels more like a gym route. Other than that section, it's easier than 5.8. The crack section is very easy.

The crack is probably 5.4, so no gear is really needed unless you feel the need to sew it up.

Why do these routes even exist? This is what the gym is for.

Another fun moderate for this area. I agree with the above comments - there's really only a few 5.8 parts. I placed two cams in the crack for peace of mind, but the climbing was very easy at that point. Still, thought it was a fun route and a good introduction to placing gear on lead, given the difficulty at the placements and the bolts before and after.

This is a very fun route for beginners and is a great warm up! The location, high up the canyon wall, makes it a great place to take people new to Colorado! They always love it!
