Description

This has an awkward start further left than you think it should be, but ascend jugs and flakes with increasing ease to a ledge at 50 feet. The climb really starts once you launch into the headwall. It has nice edges and sidepulls through three bolts then easier climbing for a couple more bolts to the anchors.

Location

This is the furthest left route on the lower New Economy Cliff.

Protection

11 bolts.

A stick clip is useful for the 1st bolt. The route starts on a small ledge above a sloping, dirt hillside. Green, yellow or red Aliens are useful to anchor the belayer.

Easiest climb to be rated .12a in Clear Creek. The rock quality on the upper headwall is quite good. There is a big ledge at the base of the headwall, that makes it hard for your belayer to see you. There is ledgefall potential. Getting to the 9th bolt (3rd bolt on the headwall) seemed a bit run out considering the ledge below. I felt like another bolt before the 9th bolt would have been nice. It is important to have an attentive belayer there. The belayer should stand back to see you. May 21, 2017

The top is excellent. The bottom isn't quite as dirty/bad as it looks. Aug 12, 2016
