Description

This is basically an extended boulder problem on killer crimps. It was the first rap-bolted route on the Pass and an early 12+ milestone in Colorado. This is the short, well-chalked face behind the huge evergreen down and right of Cryogenics.

Boulder high and make a hard first clip or stick clip the bolt. Continue up on ever-crimpier climbing to some sequential moves on poor sidepulls. There is a bit of a runout between bolts 2 and 3 but you probably wouldn't hit the deck.

You can take a piece to protect the easy finishing ground above the third bolt, as the route doesn't end until the big, recessed ledge.

Protection

This is a short route -- you'll need about six draws and maybe some long slings for the anchor if you plan on toproping it. 3 bolts; 2-bolt anchor with rap rings.
