Description

Radiation Fear is a three clip wonder to the right of Heavy Duty Judy, and has an interesting enough sequence to be worth jumping on. Looks simple from the ground, but don't be fooled. A tricky sequence to thin pockets gains a big reach around the bulge just below the anchor. It's short, right at hand, well protected, and worth the burn. Watch out for rattlesnakes that patrol the base!!

Protection

Three draws and a short rope.

During routine maintenance today one of the anchor bolts snapped off. For the time being there is only one coldshut up top. There are ways to clean it still if you incorporate the anchors of either Heavy Duty Judy or First Dibs (You can get to the single anchor by lowering from either, or run it out on easier terrain to HDJ and have someone follow).
The good thing here is that this will spur a concerted effort to get an anchor replacement initiative going at CWC. Many are over 20 years old. Feb 7, 2009

Althogh the last few moves are a little tricky, 5.11a seems a little overated to me. Nevertheless, I certainly enjoy the climb. Feb 18, 2002

Our pleasure, Darrin. Some of the guys I'd like to thank are Tom Hanson, Tod Anderson, Rich Magill, Scott Sills, Pat Burwick, Chris Drysdale, The Green Bros, who have all contributed greatly to providing leadable routes at CWC done largely in cooperation with the Colorado Department of Parks. CWC may have the interesting distinction of being one of the few places in Colorado where climbers and land managers reached a mutually satisfying arrangement in which all parties concerned got the best of both worlds. Climbing and preservation were held together under a rational management plan in which climbers were equal partners in developing the plan. Dec 19, 2001

At first glance, one might say: "Short route...forgetaboutit" ...But as Richard says.. "..worth the burn." This whole wall is well developed. Thanks Richard and the gang. Dec 19, 2001
