Description Suggest change

Located on the Southwestern side of Castle Rock, Deadline tackles the improbable looking roof using a combination of crack and sport climbing skills .

In essence, the route consists of two complicated boulder problems separated by an insecure kneebar. The lower crux tests your crack climbing skills while the upper crux centers around finger strength, and body tension. Expect difficult clips.

Although this route isn't much to look at, the movement and position are among the best I have encountered on the Front Range. So whether Rob or Jerry did it first, this route is a must if you can!

Addendum: This route has been written up in Alpinist 18.

Protection Suggest change

Two bolts and small cams. Addendum: Apparently, this line has been climbed without bolts.
