Description

This route climbs up a slab in the center of the rock to below a small roof. Climb the roof (crux). After the roof move left to the handcrack and easier climbing. The crack is really fun climbing.

Location

This is the center of the three routes. Lower or rappel from the bolt anchor on top.

Protection

Standard rack to a #3 Camalot. I only placed up to a #2, but a three will fit. There are two fixed pins below the little roof. There is a two bolt cold-shut anchor on top.

There is a roof flaky thing that is very loose, I placed a 0.3 cam underneath it, and the whole entire flake shifted. So I immediately removed my cam, went left, and found another way up it. Spoooky, belayers and climbers, watch out!

Best trad climb I've done in Clear Creek otherwise thus far. Jun 4, 2017

The starting slab section of this climb offers one small nut (not too bad) for pro if you want it. The gear is creative until you get to the crack. The crack itself is just under fist-sized. If you want to jam you can, if you want to hold onto ledges inside and around the crack you can (better to jam). Definitely try the bolted route next door after leading this one as they share the same anchor, as the route has great, techy slab climbing for the area. Great route all around!

Also, I got a #7 nut stuck in the horizontal crack right above the two pitons on 4/8/18. If you can get it out, message me, and I'll buy you a beer. Apr 9, 2018

Twenty feet up a block is loose. I chalked it with double Xs. May 24, 2018
