Description Suggest change

Standing at the base of The Example look up canyon toward Cripple Creek until the cliff turns out of sight. The prominent, overhanging prow just to the right of the large corner that is above the large block on the hillside is your target. The buttress holds three routes, Deeper Shade of Soul being the left most route; tackling the prow with Metolius hangers.

Trundle up 3 bolts to enter the crux, working through a big cross through, sloper and two monos (the left hand one is enhanced) ending on a large, flat edge. From here it is 4 bolts and mid .12 to the anchor but remains sustained. The crux has sent many people away with sore fingers and bruised egos and it is not unknown to fail while pulling to the anchors. Variously described as a pile (mainly from the bruised ego folks) to quite a good route, Deeper Shade of Soul, will test your pocket pulling abilities and endurance.

If you dig this then go for the Triple Crown - My Generation, The Example, and Deeper Shade of Soul all in one day and hanging all the draws.
