Beginning the crux section of Canvas. From here, ...

The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>


Timeline’s big brother, Canvas offers more scrote-shriveling slab smearing, with a slightly harder & much longer crux section.
Begin about ten feet left of Timeline, with a fun few moves to get established on the undercut face. Easy moves lead to diminishing holds, and a virtually blank section, ~5 feet below the top. Rock onto a good left foot, and grope up to the diagonal rail on the left. Work up the rail to good holds at the lip. Descend as for Timeline.


Ten feet left of Timeline, on the same SW-facing wall.


Pads, spotter. The landing is flat, in case you plan on falling.

I could be wrong, but doesn't Canvas have a no hands crux halfway up the climb?

I had my hands on the whole time.

I've forgotten her name, but Ben told me a story about a teenage girl who tumbled off the high crux section of Canvas and walked away (shaken I'm sure). There is real potential to get very badly hurt on this rig with the crux just before the lip. If a foot blows during a 2-3 move sequence up there, you are going for a not-so-fun ride.
