At the anchors on 'West of Africa' - Aug. 12, 2012...


This has excellent steep face climbing on big holds. It is the crag classic and probably the best and cleanest moderate sport climb in the Steamboat area.


It is the third route from the left and goes up the center of the crag. Rap down.


Bolts to an anchor just below the lip. A bit tricky to set up a toprope from above, best to just lead it.
