Description Suggest change

This is an excellent highball that is probably among the best moderates in Colorado. It is very reminiscent of The Buttermilks.

Climb perfect patina edges to a decent jug at the lip (around 20 feet or so). Make a very spooky and committing mantel involving a sh*tty left hand crimp on the slab and a right hand/foot match. Technically and physically, this is not hard for V6, but it is a VERY committing highball with potentially serious consequences if you blow it on the insecure mantel. I have witnessed a climber fall while mantelling, and it was by far the most serious fall I have seen, but luckily he walked away unscathed (due to the 15+ pads and spot).

Location Suggest change

The boulder is a short hike up from the road and 30 seconds away from the old parking on the way to the wall. Sit start down low with a left hand crimp and right hand undercling.

Protection Suggest change

Many pads and spotters. Ideally use double pads over the landing zone with a blubber.
