The line left of "Speed Trap." It's the thinnest looking line on the wall.

The crux is clipping the 3rd bolt and getting two bad, rounded crimps and tossing about four horizontal feet to a in-cut jug at the lip!! The finish is easy 11 or 12?.

I bolted this line around the fall of 2000 and worked it for a very long time!!! I was never strong enough to get set up on the bad crimps and make the biggest hardest toss that Clear Creek has to offer. Although short, it's difficulty may very well be the hardest in the Canyon if ever completed. Good luck to all!! If you send it please feel free to rename it!!!!!! and let me know. I would love to see it go some day.


The line is at the Wall of Justice. The thin bolt line left of "Speed Trap."


Bolts - 4-5 bolts with 2 bolt anchor.

I added some fixed draws on it and tried it last week, wasn't able to do much with it on the first hang, but I see it going, super hard to clip! I left the fixed draws hanging for some strong youngtsers to try. I also told Daniel Woods about it, he sounded psyched!

That is so cool, Wade.
I did have some fixed chain link draws hung up, but the community found them rather ugly, and they were taken down while I was out of the state.

I facebooked Dave G. about the line, but I never heard back from him. I hope Daniel sends that thing. If you hear anything more about him going for the send, I would love to be informed so I could just watch. I have waited many years to see that line go.

Just to note, I never tried this, but maybe it would just be best to stick clip the middle roof bolt. That way one could just focus on the send because that clip always took about 99% of all my fuel when I was working it. Man, I hope it goes!!!

Thanks for the info....

Oh yeah, if anyone does send this line just let me know and I will update the route info. Again, thanks, Wade.

Can't do the route at this time, I would put it at around 14c or harder, just left my two fixed draws up for now, probably will take them down spring next year.

Thinking of working the old project again... probably this fall. I still need more super boulder power to have a chance, and WildHorse, I may go give your line "Glory" a look, but it may be a few weeks yet. I still have some boulder projects to put away before I break out the rope, but after I give it a run I will let you know what I think. The pics of the line look cool.

Did this still not see an ascent? I got on it to play back when I was working the .12s on this wall, and it didn't seem that infeasible, maybe V8 crux (based purely on my imagination). Did any of the strong guys mentioned above end up trying it?

To my knowledge, this line has still not been done. Very very hard. I'd say much harder than a V8 crux. Not a super awesome line, but the hardest project still left done in CCC I would bet.
