Climb Bob's Crack for 25 feet, exit left into a left-facing corner and climb over the roof to a left-angling seam. Follow the seam to the top with a crux about 2/3 of the way up.


The first ascent was climbed using pre placed Ball Nutz and a fixed copperhead. A few small to medium cams are useful before the roof. Two bolt anchor and chains.

I worked this routes with Justin several years ago. It was originally an A3 line by Rob Dillon that we started toproping on. Big props to Justin for leading this thing. It's hard and very scary. It's at least as hard and way more dangerous than other famous trad lines around (i.e. The Avenger on Independence Pass and the Surf's Up/'Fraid Line/Free Line trio in Eldo). While probably not as classic as these other climbs, Groundhog Day is a worthy stop for anyone looking for a good headpoint challenge. I think PG-13 might be a sandbag, though. Nice job, Justin.

Whoa. Nice job indeed there, Pops! 'Groundfall Day' is more like it.... Aug 24, 2010
