Stem up high into the cave, and then jam your hands into the crack on the left corner of the cave roof out and over, gain a chickenhead like block, and finish.


Crash pad.

In the 'Colorado Bouldering Front Range' guide by Phillip Benningfield and Matt Samet, there are two routes that start in the cave.

The description for this route would make it 'Crack, Snapple, Pop' at V0. 'Cavus Maximus' is a V1 in the book: "Start in jugs on cave's right wall and climb to the right around the arĂȘte on positive edges." Mar 10, 2015

I don't know guys, I thought it to be more like 5.9- a, b, and c with a 5.8c crux move for three inches, get real. Aug 19, 2009

I agree with Allen... Is there some eliminate that brings it to V2? May 1, 2008
Unless I'm doing this wrong, I have always felt it to be hard 5.9. allen Nov 14, 2007
