Description

Silver Bullet is the 1st route left of the most obvious line (Bone Crusher) on the buttress. It climbs a finger crack in a left-facing dihedral through a crux bulge and out a final roof to a double bolt anchor.

Start with a tricky boulder problem through flaky rock to a hand slot and the first gear. A good spot is recommended. Then fingers for ~50’, through a crux bulge and a final stance before the last 25’ of climbing through a fun roof.

Protection

Doubles or triples in finger sized cams and a couple hand-sized pieces. All three of the routes on the main buttress can be toproped, unfortunately its tricky to get over the edge to the anchors. Up top you will find a crack and a bolt, rappel from here over the lip (careful loose rock!) to the anchors on any of the routes.

I believe I left a BD 0.2 x4 with a blue/gray biner on it up by Bonecrusher. Would love to have it back and can provide beer for the return. PM if you have it. Thanks. Oct 1, 2017

Well done, Devan! You don't think anything is hard for the grade, so you're comment carries weight. May 16, 2014

An excellent route! Difficult to find a sustained crack climb of this quality and grade in the Front Range, SB is a true gem. The sustained nature and insecure moves over the bulge push this route into 12a territory. May 16, 2014

Thanks Ken for cleaning out the start, I thought it was pretty tricky and was very glad to have a piece in right off the ground. Big thanks to the folks that have been developing this crag, it's a really cool place.

The crux was more sustained than I expected. I thought it was over when I grabbed the jug at the top of the overhanging section, but the next move might have been the hardest (or maybe I was just pumped).

Also, make sure to save a small cam for pulling over the last roof, it's tough to find a piece that's in solid rock up there, but I think I got a pretty good green C3, and my partner said he found a good 0.4 Camalot.

I recently cleaned the flakey rock out of that placement. After working the route a bit, it was making me crazy that such a perfect crack had the gnar-gnar start. My partner thought my idea to clean the crack was wrong. Then I read the commnents above and thought: "It's not just me!"

Had there been anything sketchy about cleaning the rotten crack, then Will would certainly have been contacted first. Marks observation require's me to explain why a stick-clip is no longer needed.

The opening move protects very well with a yellow C3 Camalot. Great pitch and 12- for sure. Feb 7, 2009
I thought this was definitely 11+, possibly 12a. Holy fingerlocks! Awkward pulling the final roof. Apr 15, 2008
A great crack for the Front Range, sustained and thoughtful. Would be four stars w/ better rock. Apr 14, 2008
It's pretty easy to place a medium-size nut with a stick to protect the difficult opening moves. Apr 14, 2008

A bit dirty under the roof. Couple of loose sounding blocks in the roof, but harder than it looks. Apr 14, 2008
