Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures & Rockfall Mitigation Project - Completed Details


Goin' The Distance takes Slinky past the first large overhang on slopers and small crimps, then intersects Y2K after the crux of Y2K. The anchors of Slinky were moved down slightly so as not to interfere with the crux of Goin' The Distance. A few dangerous loose blocks were cleaned off above the overhang, hopefully making the route safer.


18 or 19 bolts.

What is the point of annonymity when we all know who you are and you have made brilliant contributions to climbing in so many significant areas? Sep 21, 2001

Agreed with Matt Lloyd on this. A one move wonder for sure, and that move is a BITCH. May require a bit more finger strength than most 12d's to pull the crux. Even though it's only one move, that single move may be the hardest I have ever encountered on a 5.12, so prepare to be humbled.... Jul 22, 2015
The first ascent info on this route is incorrect in the current Clear Creek guidebook. Oct 22, 2015
