The Dissolution

5.11d, Sport,  Avg: 2 from 11 votes
FA: Tod Anderson, Richard Wright, 1/94
Colorado > Golden > N Table Mountai… > Winterfest Wall
Access Issue: Rim Rock Trail Closure Details


The first clip is very hard off the ground and is routinely done by steming the face on the left. The first sequence of moves hits you with a thin fingery series past the first bolt and is sound 5.11 just getting to the second clip where another 5.11 series arises. A bit further another crux, just as difficult as the first, arises past clip four. This series goes without a stem (off route) at close to 5.11d but can be avoided to some extent by stepping left and stemming onto the adjacent wall.

Overall, The Dissolution has a bit more continuous climbing than on The Resolution, the stone is good, and the moves can really tax the finger-crimp strength. To keep the dissolution from catching up, make those feet work.


The Dissolution fires up the same face as The Resolution and ten feet to the left.


Bring seven draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top that is shared with The Resolution.

[Hide Comment] This route can be done completely- without any stemming. The first bolt seems wise to stick-clip. First crux is bouldery when not stemmed, second crux is athletic and balancy, third crux is a very awkward strength move, fourth crux is super crimpy and foot dependent.
All four cruxes seem mid 11-ish. Four quality cruxes? 3 stars! I would give it 4 if it were longer.
I would say 11d for a tall person. Maybe 12a for someone with less reach? Jan 4, 2014
