Description 

Climb up on top of the large boulder that divides the upper River Wall traverse. Then the fun begins. A thin 11d section leads to the 12b crux at a roof. A huge ledge afer this crux gives a great rest, use it. Finish on delicat yet somewhat powerful overhung moves with some fun underclings, 11d. Excellent route.

Protection 

10 bolts/2 bolt anchor. Bring a few extra draws in case this count is off.

Correct.....while not a car sized ledge, it is big enough for a no hands rest, although some balance is needed, so this qualifies as huge in my book.....

Easy 11d. I'm 5'4"

Probably one of the best easy-12 routes in Clear Creek

I think the moves below and above the crux roof are technically harder. I would have a hard time calling any move 5.12, but lots of sustained, long powerful 11 moves. (6'2", +4)

Very fun line!

Easy to swing over left to the anchors of Viagra for a TR, or hanging draws.

It's a bit easier than Viagra Falls so I'd call it 12a. Very nice climbing though.

No move harder than 11d, but much harder than "Hey Good Lookin". Great route and pumpy. Slightly easier than Adventure Kayak....
