Who's First?

V2- R, Boulder, 25 ft (8 m),  Avg: 1.5 from 2 votes
FA: unknown
Colorado > Estes Park Valley > Performance Cli… > River Wall
Access Issue: Lead Only Area Details

Description

Start on the underclings at chest level or below. Move straight up through some good horizontal holds to a point where you make a long move into a left gaston crack/pocket. Then smear and high step your way up to the tree.

Location

This is on the furthest left area of the River Wall. There is some green paint on the wall. The problem finishes at a small pine about 25' up. Then walk off left.

Protection

This is a pseudo-high-ball problem. The finishing move getting to the little tree is a little insecure. Watch out! The ground is uneven, and there is a rock sticking out at the top of the mound.

[Hide Comment] Hey, that's me in the beta photo! I hope this isn't stepping on any toes, but from what I know, I found and started working the line, and stalled out until Mike Lewis put some better beta on it. After that, I was able to finish it. Unfortunately, a guy I was climbing with went up right after I did and dislodged a very helpful sidepull, falling kinda hard in the process. I think it's a fun problem, but be careful! Jul 24, 2017
