BETA PHOTO: Columbine Crack, the leftmost route (red on photo)...


Big, steep pulls lead to a final, desperate, crack in a leaning corner. It was very difficult to protect with stoppers and hexes on the first ascent. We did it after a failed first attempt on the Black Wall's Road Warrior.


This is the first route seen on the hike down. This may be the shortest hike from a paved road to a 5.10 at 12,500' anywhere.


Lots of cams, mostly small and finger sized.
