Keep On Keepin' On

5.8, Sport, 25 ft (8 m),  Avg: 1.9 from 24 votes
FA: Luke Childers?
Colorado > Ouray vicinity… > Pool Wall > Alcove

Description

Climb up the wall on pockets and edges. Getting started is the crux.

Location

This route is one of several nice routes in the alcove area of the Pool Wall in Ouray, a friendly place to climb with closely spaced bolts. Park in the upper lot for the pool in town. Cross the road and head up the obvious wash. You pass an old no trespassing sign, access is currently allowed, continue up the wash and you will be in the alcove.

Keep On Keepin' On is on the right when hiking up the obvious scree filled wash that leads past the alcove. It is the furthest route uphill on the right wall.

Protection

Bolts.

[Hide Comment] There are 4 bolts here. If you are tall, the hardest part is the first move, the rest is pretty easy. If you are short, the first two moves are tricky. This climb is shaded all day. Aug 14, 2007
[Hide Comment] Bolted this in 2003-2004.
