Description

The first pitch presents ultra thin slabbing -- cut your finger nails short and bring stiff edging shoes.

Pitch two (12a) passes through the most continuously steep section of rock at Combat.

Protection

9 QDs and small, flexible camming gear for pitch one.
6 QDs and a #1 1/2 Friend for pitch two.

Some holds on the bottom section have been pulled off in the time I have climbed this route. Up the letter grade one or two would not be a lie. Apr 9, 2009

You pulled off holds on the bottom of which pitch?? The first half of pitch one doesn't really have any holds anyways, haha.... The upper part of pitch one definitely has some friable chips! The second pitch always seemed solid. Hmmm.... Jan 27, 2010

#3 of the "CO Northern Front Range 5.12 Pure Slab Trilogy" (my suggestions and all non-Splatte routes).
#2 is Frisky Puppies (Donahue/Harvey).
#1 is Between Nothingness and Eternity (also Luebben) on Greyrock

Honorable mentions:
  • ** Greensleeves on Rock Of Ages (steep slab crimpin')
  • ** Radlands Of Infinity on Blob Rock (1st pitch is crux and it's a scratch-fest/ 2nd pitch is thin crack and funky slab---link pitches)
  • **Razor Hein Stick on Bitty Buttress (short but fierce friction bumps)
