Climb through small but solid, pink crimps and crystals onto a slab that get easier as you go.


This is on Left Wire's middle wall.


6 bolts to LOs.

Again, like others, I am a bit surprised as the book put it as a 5.9. Those two holds to get up past the second bolt were a bit intense. Good climbing though and for me, seemed that I had to have the right foot sequence to get pass the thin section below the roof. May 25, 2015

Climbed this yesterday thinking it was 9+ like book says. Must be all the holds that broke off, because the moves felt more in the high 10/11- range. Small sharp crimps and balancy moves. Maybe I'm just not used to climbing Colorado. Apr 14, 2015

Climbed this yesterday and had another hold break off just above the second bolt. The moves to get to the roof feel harder than low 5.10 to me. I think the holds that were originally in the middle section of the route must have broken off, because it's really thin until you reach the roof and definitely not 9+ as the guidebook states. The move to pull the roof is fun, but getting there isn't all that enjoyable. Apr 8, 2013

Fun route with great moves. Harder than the crux, for me, was making the 3rd and 6th clips. The moves past those bolts are no issue if not leading. Nov 7, 2012

Shitty rock. Anchor still only has two quicklinks, which do not align properly and will twist your rope. Route is currently hard 5.10/low 5.11 but will probably change when (not if) more holds break. Jul 27, 2012

Something has definitely broken off this. Nowhere near 10a. Nov 28, 2011

There were only two bolt hangers at the top of this route sans chains/rings.

I left two quicklinks up there as it was all I had on me. The next person up there might want to add rap rings and/or hangers. Aug 20, 2011
I would say it did make the climb a bit harder than 10a at the time I climbed it. Oct 16, 2009
Brett B, was this hold that broke consequential to the 10a rating? I climbed this route tonight and thought the moves between the 1st and 2nd bolt were significantly harder than 10a . . . perhaps 10c/d? The guidebook says 9+, so I was surprised to say the least! Jul 15, 2009
Hold broke on me today between 1st and 2nd bolt. Jun 28, 2009

Fun route but the rock's a bit dodgy towards the middle of the route, be careful pulling to hard on holds as you approach the roof section. Feb 28, 2009
