Turquoise Tubers

5.6 R, Trad, 200 ft,  Avg: 3 from 1 vote
FA: unknown
Colorado > Ft Collins > Poudre Canyon > Greyrock > Granite Sea

Description

This might possibly be the best pitch of 5.6++ at Greyrock, or anywhere for that matter. Begin with delicate runout face climbing to gain the corner. Lie-back the crack using abundant footholds on the face, and eventually break out over the small roof as the diheral begins to bend left. Another runout reaches a long/narrow flake. Follow this up and right to the anchors. Rap to the ground with two 60m ropes.

Location

Left most route at Granite Sea.

Protection

Standard rack + RPs.
