Description

Another solid sport route. 50 feet down the hill From System 3 Crack is a dark, featured groove with bolts running up it. This is Aspen Gold. This route has some delicate clipping stances but the climbing is excellent and the rock is solid.

Just be careful if you are new to leading as the movement is substantially different from gym climbing and the clipping stances aren't always as secure as you might like them to be.

Location

50 feet down the hill from the striking, right-angling System 3 Crack. Look for a dark grove with bright shiny bolts running up it and eventually trending left.

Protection

7(?) bolts, chain anchors.

Quite quality for the grade. Good rock, and many different sequences to choose from which will keep you thinking.

Probably not a great one to fall on mainly just because of the angle and ledges. Many of the routes on this wall have some spice getting to the chains in my opinion. On this one you could put in a #3 cam or something similar after the last bolt. Its probably only 8 feet from bolt to chains but you would hit a ledge if you fell. Feb 27, 2016
