Description

Start on the ledge below the Bat Cave. Climb to the right of the black streak but to the left of the big flake. Follow the line of bolts through some fantastic face climbing and a thin crux. Finish at the first anchor.

Dont be offended Rich, this Tim Putz is a troll. He likes to use big words in his posts but has no idea how to use them in proper context. He is just trying to get a rise out of you, but never has anything of value to add to any discussion. I wish the administrators would crack down on trolling like this, it would greatly improve the quality of the site. Oct 3, 2017

People should just chill out!! Only a few cave routes out of the 75+ routes in the area have glue. Of the 25 or so routes in the cave only about 5 have "some" glue on then! Its not every hold(upper old man and the sika is bad though) and unfortunitly the hold reinforcement was done with poor craftsmanship! If these routes were in Rifle, the glue would be covered over with a ton of chalk and no one would know the difference. The terraces aren't much different from Maple either! Ben exaggerates a bit. This one particular route has 3 or 4 tiny crimps glued over(very ugly but not worth breaking it off) too bad it hasn't been climbed enough to turn them white. Upper part is glueless.
JUST GO CLIMBING. No one is glueing there anymore - stop whinning and climb some routes

Hope I didn't start the debate again!! Mar 17, 2017

And the rock is solid. Felt like 12c or 12d with a long reach move, might be harder if you're short! Mar 30, 2015

By far the worst climb in the cave, every hold is 100% manufactured.
The extention is much better though and worth the glue fest below. Dec 27, 2016

Fun route with a thin face climbing crux. Crux section is short, but the climbing above is fun and thought provoking. With some long draws we also started off the higher belay platform. Mar 17, 2015
