Description Suggest change

Tread lightly past one bolt to another ledge, clip the second bolt, and launch into some of Clear Creek's most fun, steep climbing around. There is a very distinct crux on this one, with sustained 11+(ish) moves taking you to the anchor.

Location Suggest change

This route is on the extremely overhung piece of rock to the right of the trail before you get to Creekside 'proper' and the 'Playin' Hooky; area. Once you spot the climb (it's pretty obvious), locate the 'faint climber's trail' that winds up and to the right into a gully. Continue up the gully, and exit onto the ledge on the left. Go to the edge of the ledge, and you will see a fixed line set up that skirts along the cliff. Follow this line until you end up at the belay ledge. There is a belay anchor here, some long slings can be useful.

Rappelling from this anchor is the fastest and easiest way down. A 70m rope more than reaches, I can't speak to whether or not a 60m will get you down.

Protection Suggest change

All bolts, with fixed permadraws for low-commitment projecting.
