Loose Canon

5.11d, Sport, 65 ft (20 m),  Avg: 4 from 4 votes
FA: unknown
Colorado > Gunnison > Spring Creek > Pirate Wall


This is the right route on the wall. It starts with 2 black bolts and is obvious. Good climb and very well-bolted. There are some decent rests as well as a little knee bar at the third bolt which isn't really needed but fun. There is potential for placing gear on the last part of the climb, as it is a great finger crack. So bring some cams if you're into that sort of thing.


On the main wall there are two sport climbs. I haven't climbed the left line, so I won't post anything about it. Loose Canon takes the right line of bolts. You can belay near the large tree on the ledge after scrambling to the base of the climb.


9 bolts to anchors. There is a finger crack up top that will eat cams but there are bolts there as well. Very small cams would be needed.

[Hide Comment] Great pitch! A green C3 fits perfectly in the crack at the top if you'd like to place it. Aug 23, 2022
