Hypertension is just right of Vasodilator and largely in constant shadow. Climb up on improbable and chossy looking stone that gets progressively better the higher you climb. This felt a bit like the lines at Clear Creek's Dog House. The whole line is juggy right to the end where it throws an unexpected hand jam. Moving up prior to throwing the jam might save a bit of power. It has powerful but surprisingly nice climbing for how it looks from "the outside".


Eight draws and a rope.

"This felt a bit like the lines at Clear Creek's Dog House."

What's that, chipped and overgraded? Oct 15, 2003

Not at all. This is fine line and perfectly natural. Oct 15, 2003

After a chossy start, the quality of both the rock and the moves increases, but 12b??! May 3, 2004

Both quality and difficulty assessments are compared to other one pitch Boulder Canyon sport climbs. This pitch attains surprisingly exposed postion while its difficulty increases with each bolt. Could be very photogenic from the Conan's ledge. Very closely bolted in the upper section -- watch out for z-clipping.

Note: the gully at the base is currently quite loose. Be very careful in it if there are people around the base of Jolt Cola and nearby routes. Jul 15, 2004

12b in the guides; I followed Rolofson's. "a" is more in keeping with things like the Ticket, which actually seems quite a bit harder. Jul 15, 2004
