DescriptionColorado Cable Cutter is a 2-3 pitch route worth doing if you want an adventure. The first pitch is a decent fist to offwidth crack. Climb this for 30-ish feet, and then climb a slabby section up and left toward another corner. Climb the awkward corner into a second short offwidth to the left. Somehow finish on top.
The descent is where is gets really interesting. There is not an anchor, so plan on leaving some webbing. We got off in two raps but had to skirt around the formation to get back to our packs. Plan on an adventure or a nightmare. Be safe.
LocationHead to Straight and Narrow, and continue northwest past Moonrise Variation. Colorado Cable Cutter is just left of Blade Runner. The descent is dicey. Plan on sacrificing some webbing or nuts.
