This is a beast of a climb that demands respect. Clipping the chains requires a diverse pallet of climbing techniques. Begin the cloak with immediate difficulty that continues until you reach the highly visible huecos towards the middle of the climb. Slopping edges and important body positioning characterize this lower section that is the route's crux. Manage a rest in the middle of the climb before firing into the dagger. This exposed arete is thuggish and tends to be extremely tiring at such a high altitude, especially after climbing the bottom.

Cloak and Dagger is perhaps one of the better 5.13s in the entire Front Range. Get after it!!


The line follows the bolts out of the shield and through the upper arete on the right side of the overhanging alcove.


11 bolts and chains. Mandatory stick-clip.

The loose flake right of the 3rd bolt is completely gone now. This significantly changes the right "variation", if still possible. Regardless of how one gets past the 3rd bolt, the traverse is probably a bit harder now that the broken flake eliminated a good foot hold. Maybe it's 13c again? Jul 22, 2012

This is the sickest route in the Front Range! Cannot believe how perfect this line is. I wonder if hold breakage has altered the grade at all? It's one hell of a hard 13b! Nov 4, 2015
