Description

Located left of Wild Bore, we have a slabuless route that show cases two main crux sections! I'll just say there's one crux down low with another just past the mid-point before you pull onto a rest ledge before moving up to the chains! This is a super fun line, and it is great for new leaders as I put in a good deal of tightly spaced bolts through both crux sections! I love this slab and found it to be a worthwhile wall to climb on! I will add some beat photos and some climb pics when I get a chance! Fun line!

Location

The line is found on the East Colfax wall just left of the route Wild Bore! It's a slab route to not be missed. The approach is the same as for East Colfax. Park at the Primo Wall parking and head downstream to where the current Tyrol is set to access The Armory and all the walls located on the other side of the river. Once at the Tyrol (before crossing the creek), just look up and right and the slab will come into view. Enjoy cuz I did!

Protection

11 bolts plus chains.

Great route! It gets sun mid-morning so I'm glad I climbed it before the 10:30 sun crux hit. I agree it was more fun than Wild Boar. Sep 2, 2017
Perfect for a first lead. My 6 year old loved it on TR! Jun 16, 2017
Ashley's first rappel!!! :D Apr 16, 2017

First lead outdoors. Solid hands all the way up. One shaky move for the novice at about the 2nd to last bolt - a bit of a reach - but doable. Great climb! Apr 4, 2017

Concur with the comment on the first bolt, the route starts in earnest at the 2nd bolt. Jun 7, 2015
First route I ever sent on lead. Super fun and a couple of challenging moves for the beginner outdoor climber. Apr 30, 2015

A great, solid, slabby climb perfect for new leaders. Apr 27, 2015

This climb is actually really fun. It is rare that you find a sport route this long at this grade. Great for new leaders, since the bolts are so close together that it almost feels like you are in the gym. Only weird part is the large ledge after the first bolt. The climb doesn't really start until after the first bolt. May 20, 2014

This is a fun route. I think it is the most difficult of the three 5.7s here. It is still 5.7 though. Aug 21, 2013

Super fun route - also thought it was better than Wild Bore. I counted 10 bolts. Sep 6, 2012

Luke ain't kidding. He really did invest some hardware in this route. I think 4' is the biggest fall you could possibly take on this thing. And, that's if you blow a clip with a handful of slack. Jun 29, 2012
