|This is probably my favorite climb in Cheyenne canyon and one of my favorites in town. Very balancy and technical. It has a few 11 moves but it isnt a very sustained climb which in my opinion puts it in about the 10c range. Definitely a must do if you like climbs that involve crimps and technique. Stay away if you are looking for a jug haul...looking at this route from the trail is very deceiving as it does appear very juggy. That is definitely not the case. First bolt is rather high but it is probably 5.9 climbing to the first clip. Leave the stick clip at home.|

This climb is actually the second route to the left of the furthest left route on creekside. There is a route in between with holds that are sharp as hell and will cut you good. I think that particular route may be in the 12 range.... Not real sure as I just couldn't make the moves.
Regarding this climb, I skipped the last bolt right before the anchor. I suppose that rope drag really doesn't come into play on such a short route, but I found that bolt super superfluous.
The beta is surprisingly accurate on the route description. This route is easy to miss when you're climbing up the hill. Right after you scramble over the exposed tree roots, start looking on the right for bolts. The first hanger looks like it was fashioned from a piece of angle iron.
