The Stranger (aka The Left Hand Route)

5.10d, Sport, 80 ft,  Avg: 2.7 from 10 votes

Colorado > Boulder > Eldorado Mountain > Ridge 1
Access Issue: Private Property issues Details


This route is located in the prominent dihedral on the upper reaches of Ridge 1. This line is between Casana Rojo and The Adultress.

A great moderate line, this route runs a nice dihedral for the first 40 feet before breaking left into steep overlaps for the last 40 feet. Big moves to great holds! Really fun.


About 12 bolts to anchors.

[Hide Comment] Quite good, but much easier than Shooting Off at the Mouse which is given the same grade. There is a long (~7-8m) runout on steep but easy ground to the anchor. Sep 29, 2006
[Hide Comment] Probably best not to climb this route. There is a large crow's nest about halfway up, and the crows always attack! It's a good idea to respect them and leave them be. Otherwise it's a pretty fun route. Apr 23, 2018
