Description

Start just right of "Ben Dover". Climb up on good rock past several bolts to a vertical groove. Make a hard move to gain the groove then climb on thin holds up the groove making a baffling move to reach a good hold. Clip another bolt and veer left to the anchor. Great route and climbing.

Protection

Six clips will get you to a two-bolt anchor.

Well-bolted, fun route with a deceptive crux (that I did not fully solve) Aug 5, 2004
Is this the route that is located two routes right of Ben Dover? If it is the climbing was fun with a great crux to get from a sloper/jug with bad feet to the lip. good stuff. Jul 28, 2005

This is a fun route that may be easier if you are taller. Sep 7, 2009

Fun and relatively easy climbing up to the crux. Then thin layback, grab the crystal, and make the huge reach to the good hold above. The tall guys just reached up from a "good" toehold, but I got to work my feet up on thin face edges. Sep 5, 2010
I climbed this "accidentally" instead of Ben Dover. I didn't have a guidebook and thought this thing actually looked like the easiest of the three lines there. All I kept thinking at the crux was, "5.9?! This is 5.9?! Damn! These South Platte guys are STOUT!"

Super fun route. Nicely bolted. The crux felt about 5.11c. I'm 5'9" with a zero ape index. The long reach will DEFINITELY feel easier for tall people. Apr 30, 2013
