  • Description 

    This is a newly developed boulder smack in the heart of Upper Chaos with fantastic moderates on beautiful dark rock on its east face. I can't believe how many times I walked right past this thing without really seeing it. It is only a stone's throw away from well-travelled classics like Pterodactyl and Riddles. The Creme Fraiche Traverse is truly a stunner, featuring the best rose move this side of Buoux at the low low price of V2. Add a pump by climbing out of the pit beneath the starting jug via lines ranging from V4 to V8.

    Getting There 

    It is a couple minutes upcanyon from Baby Otech, very near to Pterodactyl.

    Let me-- let me set the stage for you here.Start down and right from the start of the Shake Weight on two gastons. Trend up and left. Long moves between good holds eventually bring you to the same finish as Creme Fraiche Traverse and The Shake Weight. It gets two stars, because it's a bit contrived, but the movement is quite good....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

    Can anyone provide slightly more descriptive directions? Is this in the same hill/cluster as Pterodactyl? If I'm standing at Pterodactyl, where should I go to find this guy?
