Jeroen just past the crux.

Note, the loose block ...
Access Fund still owns Golden Cliffs property; soon to be transferred to Jefferson County MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is a silly little variation that turns out to be a bit interesting for a few moves.

Start somewhere either on Sidelines or just to the left on easy terrain. Gain a ledge at mid-height. Now comes a few interesting moves. If you utilize some holds left of the dihedral, it may be 10-. If you have left hand in the dihedral and smedge the left foot in the corner, it may feel 10+. Gear would be tiny through this bit, and the ledge is pretty close, so fill 'er up. You can traverse right at the top to the bolt anchors for Sidelines.

Note, there is a loose block on above the crux with a chalked X on it. With all the folks and stuff below, it needed to wait to be cleaned until a better time. It is just above and left of Jeroen's right hand in the photo.

It's not in Hubbel's Front Range Crags, Haas' North Table Mountain: Rock Climbs at the Golden Cliffs, or Rolofson's Golden Rock Climbs.


Location 

This is basically to the left o' Sidelines.


Protection 

Rack to #3 Camalot with an emphasis on tiny gear...or better a TR with a #2 Camalot and/or #0.75 directional.

Although the hard climbing is short in length, this is a somewhat fun line. It is hard to set the directionals for a top rope. I think smaller cams than those recommended would go a little lower.

Jay, I just wrote down what we used near the top of the climb.
