Dropped in The Water

V3, Boulder,  Avg: 2.8 from 4 votes
FA: Mike Puente?
Colorado > Ft Collins > Horsetooth Rese… > Rotary Park > Waterway Boulder

Description

Start at the large jug near the water, and follow left uphill, use the large crack and jam to get you into the next section of the rock, then follow the ledge with sketchy feet and dyno to the last hold and up. This is a long traverse, probably one of the longest at Rotary. Not necessarily a very difficult route, but its just so dang long. The crux is the last move (the 21st), the rock is also pretty sharp, so be careful.

Location

From the Talent Scout, follow paths down to the water, you can see the gigantic rock the whole walk down.

Protection

One crash pad to protect you from the rock below the last move.

[Hide Comment] When did you do the "FA"? I'vE been climbing this traverse for a couple years, and I'm sure I'm not the first either. Also, it's a shame that someone vandalized this problem with that stupid, orange, hippy sun thing. Oct 26, 2009
