P1: 5.10, 100 feet. Pro small to 2.5", #5 Friend useful low. In your face off the deck. Overhanging.

P: 2 5.11b, 70 feet 1 each 0.4-0.5" optional. Crux is bolted, as is most of pitch.

P3: 5.12b, 160 feet. Not too much trad pro, generally green Aliens, C3s and up to 1.75". Steep! Cruxes throughout, including pumpy finish. Some cruxes are gear protected; including the roof (green Alien to 1.25").

No nuts.
"Nesting" placements recommended.


Grizzly Creek Wall, Glenwood Canyon, CO. Start 20 feet right of Horse and Pony Show (III 5.12a; FA Michael Schneiter and Chris Van Leuven). Or, walk left along base of wall and look for route second from left. Marked by bolt 15 feet up, and more above.


15 QDs including long runners, and medium draws. 2 ropes, 60m recommended. Blue Alien - 2.5" Friend, #5 Friend for P1 (keeps you off the deck). Extra green Alien to #0.5 Camalot. C3s useful. All placements in horizontals. Belays are 2-3 bolts. Generally bolts are 1/2" X 3 3/4", and belays are on spacious ledges. Rap the route.

Rad route. The first pitch is PG-13 off the deck, so be careful. More like 10+ /11- getting past the first bolt. Second pitch is safe and fun. Third pitch... get ready. Never any super hard move but a steady pump build up and just enough spice to make you over grip in places. .12a. Sep 24, 2014
