Comments: Camalots: one #2, two 3's, one C4 #4 and one old #4, a C4 #5 and three #6s. You could do it with two #6s. Hell you could do it without pro, but three of them worked for me.

Comments: Of course...another line that Dan freed. This is SUCH a good line. Damn. Is it ok to say damn on here? Damn, that was awesome. If you're thinking about going for it or not, do it.

Comments: Very nice line with a sequential crux. I would suggest a little different gear: 3 0.75 Camalots, 1 0.5 Camalot, 1 #3 Camalot, 1 0.4 Camalot, two draws for the two bolts, and a #2 or #1 camalot for the roof slot (either will work).

Comments: Thanks for putting it up. From the ground, I thought (hoped) the roof would be the business and the upper half would be more mellow. Nope. Spanked me. Nice and sustained. Very nice line.

Comments: Where is this offwidth? I did a search in Clear Creek Canyon for "Crack a Beer", and it didn't come up. Splitter

Comments: Definitely get on it if you have the gear, cajones, and grit. What a total body workout. You may not wanna eat lunch right before going up it.
