This is a fun route on the far right side of the wall. Clamber up easily to the top of a pillar, climb a left-facing corner to a small overlap, pull that, and then do the crux. Some easier climbing will take you to a spot parallel with a tree from where you can traverse left to an anchor and descend.

(The route name was obtained from the excellent guidebook "South Platte Climbing: The Northern Volume".)


This route is on the far right side of Crimpfest Wall. Get yourself to Deceptive Slab. Continue about 40 feet to the right. Scramble up to a small platform with a nice, flat area for gearing up and belaying.


I used gear from a purple TCU to a #3 Camalot. An extra #1 and #2 Camalot wouldn't hurt. There's a cold-shut anchor at the top of the route to the left that can be accessed by easily traversing over when you get level with the tree.
