  • Description 

    k00kEEz and krEEm climbs the thin face about 25 feet right of s00krEEm and 40 feet left of Whipping Post. This is a new route on the Slab that offers excellent face climbing on quality stone. Well worth the hike!

    The climb begins on overhang terrain for the first 3 bolts followed by a crux on thin crimps (the “k00kEEz”) to get the 4th clip. More difficult face climbing follows until the angle eases off. This slabbier climbing leads to a final roof (and 2 more clips), with another crux (5.12) to the anchors. We originally rated this climb 13a, but with new Beta it seems to be settling in at solid 12d.

    We used entirely stainless-steel half-inch bolts (some are 3.5" long, the others 4.75") and hangers.

    Special thanks to Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP)and the Flatirons Climbing Council (FCC) for allowing new routes to be developed in the Flatirons.

    12 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Mandatory 60m rope!

    12+, hmmmm I guess so.
    Regardless do this route, short boulder problem,
    then nice sustained face, to a bad-ass little roof encounter.
