Comments: You may be able to booty a cam (clean up litter) if you drag a coat hanger up to the offwidth crux. There appears to be a hand-sized Friend laying uncammed in the back of the 5-6 inch crack. It's probably 4 feet beyond arm's reach.

Comments: Great route, Cor.

It has cleaned up well and protects well without a BD 3-4.

Comments: Any First Ascent history out there?

Step 3+ remains unclimbed. The topout looks pretty adventurous. We will see how it cleans up.

Comments: My opinion: This is a classic Colorado crack climb.

Where else in CO can you find a limestone crack of this quality? Please tell me so I can go climb it. Warm up on Oscar de la Cholla for a few finger locks and hand jams.

Comments: Morrison offers a great opportunity for high mileage days. The cliffs have a number of endurance traverses, soft dihedrals and easy options for descent. The rock quality is generally solid - look, listen and feel.

Be safe and go explore.

Comments: Route Description:
Pitch 1 - Begin at the highest point on Prusik Pass. Looking at Prusik Peak you will see a distinct 5.6ish crack that will take you through blocky climbing to the West Ridge. Belay when the ridge levels out or when you hit a flat trail. This is a long pitch
Pitch 2 - Follow the flat trail around the Northside of the ridge. Climb up 15 ft to the southside of the ridge. The exposure is great here. Stop and belay at a "slingable" block before the 5.7 slab crux.
Pitch 3 - C... more >>

Comments: Great view awaits on top.

You can rap the Cross Fire chain anchor with a 70 meter rope to descend to the base on Cinnamon Slab.

Comments: This is the Eldo crag for a windy day. There was a High Wind Advisory with 40-60 mph gusts, and the climbing here was comfortable.

Go for it.

Comments: This line will be in the shade when the rest of the area is getting fired up.

BETA:
The crux protects well with an RP on the face.

Comments: Stay on the left side of the arete for the entire top section, there is one two finger pocket on the right side used to setup for the big move. In general, It is hard 2 finger pocket climbing with a few friction feet then a big move into a jug finish. Sandbag.

Comments: Crux nut placement is tricky and doesn't inspire confidence (#8 nut placed with the width facing out). There is a bomb #1 Camalot placement just above.

Comments: This crack zips up real nice with nuts and cams #0.3-#2.

No need for TCUs or the bolt.

The flake on the arete between Gearhead and Airhead is very loose.

Comments: There are a lot of routes with serious ground fall potential. Bring a stick clip to save yourself the worry and protect against rattlesnakes. On a single day trip, I saw 3 different rattlesnakes. Come to find out, there is a RATTLESNAKE DEN at the mouth of the canyon. Climbs are mostly a bit short (40-60ft) and lacking bolts at times (3-4 is not uncommon). Bring your A game, and be ready for slabby climbing mixed with thin, vertical climbing.
