Description

Begin with a boulder problem undercling to the crux at the first bolt. At the 2nd bolt, move slightly right to good holds and another shelf. Place the #3 Friend in a pod crack and a red Alien which leads to moderate face climbing past 3 bolts. Other gear can supplement between the first and third bolts.

Location

30 feet right of Where's Bob just before a large pine tree. This is above the RTD "The Ride" sign.

Protection

Five bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. 2 red & yellow Alien, #1.5, #2, #3 Friend. 2 long runners can be used for horns.

Pretty tough bouldering problem to start. Did it without any extra gear and ran it out about 30' to 3rd bolt. Easy climbing after that second bolt -- 5.8 or so. May 17, 2014

I placed two pieces before the first bolt. The first was a #1 Friend and the second was a 0.5 Camalot. The first piece occupies a hand hold but inspires confidence. Jun 7, 2013

A tough start to more moderate climbing. Place a good red Alien at the start and clip in short; the hardest moves are before the first bolt (pumpy and tricky laybacking.) The cracks in the middle of the pitch need more cleaning; bring a wire brush. Fun slab moves at the top. Oct 25, 2006
