my partner and I were trying to think if there were any decent 5.8-10 inverted/overhung sport routes in the front range. Only ones I could think of were maybe in the canal zone in clear creek.

trad reccs work too....any suggestions?

Not to be a nag, but we don't really use the word inverted. OH routes are typically just called steep. And sorry, I have no ides for you either. The steeps at Castlewood start around mid .11
Edit- there's a toprope or 2 out of the Nautilus Cave at Morrison that I think are 5.9-ish

Inverted? Wouldn't that mean you're moving down instead of up? I just call that falling. Ian Stewart

JCM - those were generally my thoughts too. Which is why I figured this might be a good spot to check. Thanks for all the beta folks! KM Klimbin

+1 for Face full of bush in CCC 10d and Peoples choice.
Lawsuit in CCC 10- while not great it gets you on your arms
Nice Ride in CCC 9++ gives you some good exposure on the roof pitch, but this route does require some trad gear.


The doors open up a lot more at the 5.11 grade. Just to name a few officer friendly, hanging judge, hot dogg, skipping stones, curvaceous, Kloof in Eldo (calling that thing 10d is bullshit!), psychosis direct in eldo and a lot of other fun "overhanging routes".
