The Rack

5.10d, Sport,  Avg: 2.9 from 24 votes
FA: unknown
Colorado > Ft Collins > Poudre Canyon > Palace > Chamber

Description

This route is touted as having no moves harder than 5.9, but that might be a little bit of a stretch. This route follows continuously thin climbing on a somewhat slabby wall to the left of the Jester. A very pumpy route....

Location

This is the [fourth] route to the left of Churchill.

Protection

8 bolts.

[Hide Comment] Was toproping this route after two buddies top roped it, and jagged a golf ball-fist sized rock zoomed by my head, didn't think wearing a helmet was neccesary because I was on top rope but Watch out on routes like this at the Palace. Nov 6, 2009

[Hide Comment] This is actually the 4th route to the left of Churchill. Also, one might think that it only has 7 bolts from the ground. The 8th is hidden. Threw me off at first and wasn't sure if I was getting on the correct route. But went for it anyways, and it ended up being a really fun route. Sep 14, 2012
[Hide Comment] I actually think this route is better than Jestor.

Probably about 5.10d, as it felt comparable to The Gossip Column. Mar 7, 2013
[Hide Comment] The route in between Jester and The Rack is "In Between the Sheets." It's an 11b, 6 bolts. Mar 22, 2015
