There are tricky moves both above and below the first bolt. It looks a bit easier than it actually climbs. After the first two bolts, just continue to the top.


The route is the last route on the right in the area. Rap the route.


Bolts to a chain anchor.

This sure felt like an 11- instead. A wonky 11-. Both of the books - Green's "Rock Climbing Colorado" and Schmitt's "Eleven Miles to Freedom" - agree.

I just checked Schmitt's book. He rates it 5.10b. I agree that the moves are hard to read at the first bolt, but it isn't a 5.11 move.

Interesting for such the discrepancy. I don't actually own Schmitt's book (only remember glancing over the book at the crag), but I double checked Green's, and it's definitely marked as 11-. Whatever.
