Pullin' Down in the Fields of Cotton

5.10a/b, Sport, 60 ft,  Avg: 2 from 6 votes
FA: Travis Nolen, 1995
Colorado > Canon City > Shelf Rd > Bank

Description

This is a fun lead for the new 10 leader.

Stem on the opposite face at the bottom. The crux is between the first and second bolts if you stay on the face - small nub and huecos as you position right and then left. Then climb left of the bolts, and use the face pockets and the first left seam.

Location

This is beyond the 2150 Wall opposite of Peking.

Protection

(5?) bolts and drop-ins at the anchor.

[Hide Comment] Andrea -- your progress is startling! Slow and steady progression is getting you places. Poco a poco. You have broken the 5.10 ceiling; the sky's the limit. Cheers! Sep 21, 2015
