Climb starts easy through a bad layer of rock before the first bolt, then Telluride conglomerate. The face is much steeper than it looks, so keep moving! Blaze through a roof up high and soon you'll be at the chains. This route is quite a pump-fest for the grade.


This is the 6th route down the pipeline. Starting on the face below the gigantic, bulbous roof 100+ feet up (not part of the climb).


Bolts to chains. 60m rope gets you up and down just fine.

Good route, starts easy for 2+ bolts, then gets steep and sustained. Close to a full 60m rope. Would put the rating closer to 10d/11a than 5.10. Pretty in-yer-face climbing the top 6 or 7 bolts.

This climb is outstanding! The first two bolts will keep you guessing, but the rest of the climb is defiantly in your face! Be ready for a ride!

Great line, hard to find the holds if you are not used to climbing conglomerate. I would say it was a hard 10 but my first time on this type of rock. The pump is real for sure though!

This route is the first one after you go under the big roof area. The pipeline is exposed here and makes a sort of small bench.
