5.9 Crack (Light of Day?)

5.9, Trad, 60 ft,  Avg: 2 from 3 votes
FA: Dan Hare, Tom and Tonya Painter, 9/04?
Colorado > Boulder > Upper Dream Canyon > Lost Angel


If you don't feel like clipping bolts all day but are lacking the guns to try China Doll, this multiple-tiered dihedral system provides a nice all gear alternative to reach the anchors for Rock Odyssey. Surprisingly interesting climbing and some good finger locks make this a worthwhile little pitch.


This shares the same start as 'Freedom' but trends right towards the 5.8 wide crack before reaching the first bolt.


Standard rack with plenty of slings due to its traversing nature. Some small wires were useful down low.

[Hide Comment] I'm pretty sure this route is called Light of Day [5.10b] (FA: Dan Hare, Tom and Tonya Painter; 9/04), according to Rolofson's guidebook. It's definitely harder than 5.9. Jul 17, 2018
