Bubbo Goes Solo

5.8, TR, 30 ft,  Avg: 2 from 2 votes
FA: N/A
Colorado > Denver South > Castlewood Cany… > Grocery Store Walls
Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Description

Stay on the face to the left of the crack. Start with a small cruxy sequence down low, move up to a crimp ledge, climb a few easy moves, then mantel from a jug. There are no bolts or bolted anchors.

Also, knowing a lot of these walls were once climbed by someone, if you have the F/A or a name for this, let me know.

Location

From the base: take a small social trail from the Grocery Store Walls climber's trail towards the wall, continue past a large tree and cleared, shaded area, and find an obvious crack in the wall with a good belay area. The climb starts on the left of the crack.

From the top: walk South, past Banana Chimney, a good 20 to 30 feet to a large tree 6+ feet from the wall edge. There is another tree about 4 feet further back also. Build an anchor on these trees, and rap down!

Protection

No bolts, or anchors. You can make a natural anchor using two trees up top. 50 feet of static line should suffice.
