Description

This is a high quality trad line that I have heard next to nothing about. It was just another pitch that I'd walk by on the way to the great sport climbing at Upper Security Risk. Enemy of the People is one of the better 5.12 trad pitches in Boulder Canyon, just a notch in quality below the similarly graded classics Grand Inquisitor and Arms Bazaar.

The climb starts in the middle of the crag just between the two 5.12+ sport climbs, Ecstasy of the People and Central Insecurity. It tackles a funky mantle section past two bolts to an awkward stance below the crux bulge. Throw in a couple small, but good, RPs and then engage the crux bulge. Once you reach the hand jams in the next bulge, the hard climbing is over. Continue up the 5.10 corner to a stance below a pin. Clip the pin and make a licheny rising traverse to the anchors of Ecstasy of the People.

Protection

The gear beta in the various guidebooks is good. Stoppers including RPs. Cams from 1/2" to thin hands sized. 2 bolts. 1 pin.
