Description

This route is great.

It makes up for length with class as the climb itself is quite enjoyable. Easy climbing leads to hands with several holds within the crack.

Location

Walk to the middle of the canyon and cross the stream to the obvious cliff, this crack lies in the center.

Protection

Four placements will suffice: a medium nut, 2-#2 Camalots and a #0.5 Camalot.

Starting in 1968, through 1975, I led climbers from Perry Mansfield Boys Camp on Butcherknife Creek Rocks. First ascents in 1968. We also climbed many routes on peaks in the Mount Zirkle Wilderness in the late '60s and early '70s. We did many FAs on the cliffs above Gilpin Lake. Would like to hear from others of that era.

Keith was an inspirational climber and leader for us young campers connecting to the wilderness and the vertical world. Doing first ascents with 12 year olds takes a lot of patience. Nov 25, 2013
