Rock Climbing Photo: Arete!

Foreplay/Longtime 5.13- 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E7 6c  CO : Fort Collins : ... : Hall of Fame
This striking arete, high on the southern flanks of Boston Peak, can be seen from the highway to the west. Start to the right of the obvious, bolted slab route, Heartbreaker. Pop around to the right side at the fourth bolt (between the 4th and 5th) to arrive at the base of the steepening arete. Climb to a good shakeout, and proceed past four bolts of some of the best arete climbing for miles and miles....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
