Like a wild bore, you must bust up the center of the west-facing slab on the East Colfax formation. Enjoy moderate climbing until you hit a closely bolted headwall section. Get a good rest, and like a wild bore, grunt your way up and over the headwall onto a nice ledge!! From here, find your way up the bolt line to the anchors of this fresh new line!!!
This line is located on the center of the west side of the East Colfax wall. Super fun!! It climbs so much better than it may appear, so do get on the Wild Bore Ride!!!
Bolts. 11 bolts 2 bolt anchor.

This was a very personal new team FA with me and my father, Mark Childers!! He got me into rock climbing almost 22 years ago and at his peak was a mean 5.12 rock climber with a gentleman's approach to the rock. My father, mentor, and fellow rock enthusiast.... I'm so glad you made it all the way from Texas to partake in the great journey that will always be know as "The Wild Bore!!"
We had not climbed together in many years due to life, but this reunion was to be a special one as we bolted and dispatched this new moderate on the East Colfax formation.
So, a special thanks goes out to his dedication and love. You've always been there for me!! I'll have another line picked out for your next visit out!! I do hope to see more of you back out here in the old CO. in the future!! thxs, Dude Man!!!!!!!!!

Excellent route, Luke! Definitely worthy and much better than it looks from the ground. The stone has quintessential Clear Creek friction. Good for beginner leaders with all the bolts.

Nice! I looked at this line when I was visiting Max, Jay, and Kevin last winter and really wanted to bolt it. Can't wait to do it on my next trip out!
Cheers to new routing and great experiences!

A fun cruiser route.
Be aware when pulling through the short broken section of rock. There's a big one in there that looks fairly solid until you step on it. And, if you sent that down on your belayer, it would be bad.

Nice route and definitely worth doing. Still some loose rock in that band and a very hollow sounding flake higher up, so be careful. Thanks for putting these up, Luke (and Mark)!

I did not notice any loose rock today.
