Description

Follow the thin seam on the left side of the wall. When the seam ends step left and follow a flake to the ledge. Move right to the anchor.

Eds. The length of the route is listed as longer, since using a the 2 anchor bolts and a 100' rope will not allow you to belay your second from the ground. It was originally listed as a 30' route.

Location

It is on the Short Slab Wall left of the steep section.

Protection

Standard rack. Two bolt anchor.

Going straight up the from the seam rather than stepping left led to 2-3 fun slab moves that felt a bit harder than 5.6, maybe 5.7? I did it on toprope, and this was the most direct line. Would be run out on lead though. Mar 24, 2014

I have to agree with Andy, going straight rather than following the seam all the way right is definitely stiffer than a 5.6. Relative to most of Clear Creek, this crag is a bit sandbagged. Apr 13, 2014

The seam accepted gear just fine, mostly smaller cams and a few nut opportunities. Definitely cut left for the obvious crack and avoid the runout, more difficult right ending if leading on gear which otherwise looked fun minus toping out without positive holds. Thought this was pretty cool. Jul 27, 2015

The crux on this is certainly near the top. There is gear if you place small cams. A fun route if you are at this wall. Nov 16, 2016
