Description 

This short, smooth face sits between the East and Middle Walls but does not reach the ground where they do. Instead, you must make a dirty step up past the right edge of the East Wall. The angle and character of the Recessed Slab is similar to the East Wall.

A. Don't Rock My Boat, 7, 2p, 205', bolts.
BC. My Feet is My Only Carriage, 7, 1p, 60', bolt & gear.
C. Cornmeal Porridge, 7+, 1p, 60', bolts.

Getting There 

From the top of the approach gully for the East Wall, you must scramble up a short step just to the right of the start of The Burning Bush and into a little copse of shaggy-bark cedars. The start of Don’t Rock My Boat is immediately on your left; the starts of My Feet is My Only Carriage and Cornmeal Porridge are a few more mossy steps up to the right.

Don't Rock My Boat 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  Colorado : Golden : ... : B. Recessed Slab
Do you see that big, downward-facing flake on the arete way above you? That’'s my boat-- don’'t rock it! (Seriously, the upper pitch of this route narrowly avoids this large, booming feature and a few other spots of potentially rotten rock, so stay on route). Despite this warning, Don'’t Rock My Boat is a fun and airy romp up the longest piece of the crag. It offers big exposure and great position for such moderate climbing. The second pitch is well-bolted at the cruxes, but some leaders may...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
