Description

Called "one of the best limestone routes in Colorado" in the Shelf Road Rock book, this superb route ascends sweet rock making for a long, quality climb. Thin, sequency moves past the first two bolts (crux) leads to nice crack moves to a strenuous bulge past the fourth and fifth (homemade hanger) bolt. Six more bolts protect the great face climbing through some fantastic pockets to the anchors.

Location

This route starts on the clean, black face about 30 feet left of Lifus's Farm Tools in light-colored rock down low.

Protection

11 bolts to cold shuts with no chains for the anchor.

The start was very tough for me. After the second bolt, the climb was enjoyable. There was a second mini-crux around the bulge, 4th bolt but found a small pocket out left to help me move up. Nice sharp route. Sep 25, 2007

3rd bolt should be replaced. The exposed portion of the stud isn't long enough, and instead of having the recommended 3 threads exposed, the stud is actually recessed into the nut. Apr 9, 2013
