Cro Magnon, named after the missing link (up) is a great route which climbs lots of the best stone in the Concave. Start on Silverback and do all the hard climbing of that route before heading left after the 5th(?) bolt. This is the same leftward traverse for Silverman, depositing you under the finishing crux of the Man Show. Clip the Man Show bolt, grab one small hold and make a big move to the UFO hold of Abandon. The route finishes with the upper redpoint crux of Abandon.

Adding this to clear up the confusing description in the new guidebook. For what it's worth, I thought this route was harder than Silverman and made for a good endurance trainer.


Start on Silverback, move left to the Man Show and finish on Abandon.
