Wide Crack

5.7, Trad, TR, 35 ft,  Avg: 1.2 from 6 votes
FA: Berks? Trout? Nelson? Wright?
Colorado > Golden > North Table Mou… > Brown Cloud Rocks
Access Issue: Rim Rock Trail Closure Details

Description

This is the wide crack to the right of Volobee (aka Jolobee). It is probably of limited interest to most climbers, but there are some offwidth bits that help you keep grounded.

Wander up easy scrambling or take the obvious arete (unprotected) to the base of the wide crack. Move up the crack where you will find it harder if you use only crack technique. Up near the top, the crack flares and begs you to armbar. Top out on the ledge right of Volobee (aka Jolobee).

Location

This is to the right of Volobee (aka Jolobee).

Protection

Bring wide gear to possibly Bigbros or #5 (old style) Camalot or toprope it.

[Hide Comment] This line is somewhat fun, but I don't recommend it unless you have done everything else in the area. If you only use the crack, and not the face, it will feel harder than 5.7. May 6, 2013
