Rock Climbing Photo: Vultures In Paradise

Vultures in Paradise V5-6 6C+ CT : CT Bouldering : ... : Colossus Boulder
Another one of Bald Rocks's all out epic climbs. This stunning line starts on the right side on the rails just left of Enter the Colossus. Climb up to two great crimps at the overhang. Strenuous and technical moves on incredibly small crimpers leads to a jug 20 ft. off the deck. From the jug toss for the lip, mantle, and kiss the earth - you're alive! Thanks to Richie Martinez for having the vision on this one. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
