Description

Continuity climbs up the center of Continuity Crag, following 7 bolts to a two-bolt rappel station. The route is continuous in its difficulty, well-protected, and very enjoyable. The crux is probably at bolt 6, though there are a number of similarly-graded moves. It's a little less than vertical, with good stances to shake out and regroup between cruxes.

Location

Center east face. It's a small crag, with only one route; very easy to find.

Protection

7 bolts. A perfect #4 Rock can be placed 18 inches above the second bolt if desired. Given that the ground is near, I'd recommend it.

Nice find. Climbed this and the splitter around the corner today. Two very cool, albeit, short routes. J Jan 20, 2010
Bernard, I cant wait to give it a go. Allen Jan 21, 2009
NOTES: I did this rope solo, and always have a difficult time deciding on a rating when soloing. Be ready for a letter grade or two difference either way (or perhaps 5.10c is right on). The route was put up in winter on a day where the high in Loveland was in the lower 60s. Because the route was in the shade (and may be in the shade all day during winter), it was a bit chilly, though certainly climbable. The river crossing was easy (ice bridges and rock hopping) -- I have no idea how the river crossing will be in different times of the year, though I suspect wading across in the fall will present no undue difficulties.

It's a really cool route. I'd give it 4 stars except that
A) it's short
B) it's the only route (at present) in the area.

Item B is easily overlooked as one can climb at Mary's Bust all day long (0.3 mile up canyon), and hit this route before or after. It only takes 5 minutes to get to the route. Jan 8, 2009
