Soldier Without Faith

5.10b, Sport, 50 ft,  Avg: 2.4 from 49 votes
FA: MJM & RAMM, 1/09
Colorado > Canon City > Shelf Road > The Gallery > Mural Wall

Description

Start in the 7 foot crack to gain C1. Move past the crack to a chossy ledge at C2. Climb straight up past some brushy rock at C2 & C3 to much better stone with pockets, edges and great sidepulls. Start moving left at C5 on small but good holds with tricky feet through this crux section by the small bulge at C7. A great full hands ledge (reachy & out of sight above the bulge) will make this part easier to C8 and then on to the anchors.

Location

This is in between DeMartini and Los Pepes.

Protection

8 clips to anchors.

Thanks for taking the time and effort to put up some fun lines over in this area. They may not be particularly long or uber classic but they're all worthy additions in my opinion.
I would agree that the start to Soldier is less than great but for whatever reason the last half moving out to and around the hanging arete was great. I think it's one of the better 10s on the wall.
