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.


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


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.

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

Nice find. Climbed this and the splitter around the corner today. Two very cool, albeit, short routes. J Jan 20, 2010
