DescriptionThis route has got to be one of the better hard sport climbs in the South Platte, if not the whole Front Range. While there are still some potato chip flakes that will clean up with more traffic, the route is very aesthetic and demands good fitness, creative technique, and very precise footwork on solid rock.
Start with slightly awkward, scrunchy moves off the ground to a vertical face with long moves on crimps and sidepulls. Cop a rest, and then traverse right (even climbing downward for a move). Do a powerful and highly technical boulder problem over a bulge to reach a jug and a short slab section. At the top of the slab, rest up again for the heartbreaking final boulder problem to the anchors.
