Description [Suggest Change]

At the left end of Difficult Wall is a long, flaring corner. Climb up this corner using a variety of techniques. The original route, called Pipeline, exited left at the top of the flare. Keep the amplitude high by stepping right into an overhanging corner.

This is BS, it is known as Pipeline. 5.11 I climbed this with Bob Wade of the Ute Mountaineer shop in Aspen. Sex Wax is a contrived variation. Pipeline is a cool overhanging (leaning) flare with thin stemming, and it took small wires well. It is a solid, old school, 5.11 trad route or was. Do bolt happy sporty climbers get to supercede our original name? Just saying, just asking. Steve Shea Jun 17, 2011
