This is a nice pumpy route that climbs one of the few obvious features on the wall. There are a handful of moves in the lower bit of the route that are actually harder than the rest but most will cite the pump as the main difficulty.

Start up the face with some long moves on good holds or use loads of other options. Some harder moves around the 4th bolt and just before reaching the roof. Layback up the right facing corner to an alcove and rest as best you can. Bust left out the exciting undercling with your toes just at the lip of the roof. Continue in this crack as it turns to a layback then move around the arete to the anchors several feet to the left.


Find the roof that dominates the left side of the crag. This route climbs up to and laybacks past the right end of the roof before moving left around the roof to finish at anchors above the right end of the roof. Just left of 49.


Lots o bolts to chains

I've been getting shut down or working sections of moves on 11c-12a on the front range for the past few months and haven't sent a 12a yet. I almost flashed this thing on day 2 of a crankin weekend. Clipped the last bolt and couldn't hang on to the chains while fighting the pump. This felt easier than most 12a climbs I've tried to date & would be a great first 12 for the aspiring mid-11 sport climb leader. No single hard move, just pumpy, pumpy, pumpy.

This is a cool line that grabs the eye when you first come up to the crag (at least mine). A shorter climb compared to it's neighbors, it still delivers an equal pump as others of the grade, and has some unique movements and position. Once again there's not an definite .12 crux, but the climb stacks up as you make your way to the chains. Fighting the pump not to fall off 5.10 moves after all the climbing you've just done is rather funny and frustrating at the same time. I had a blast on this one.

Straightforward climbing. Crux is fighting off the pump at the top. Totally onsightable, if you have the fitness. There's a good rest before the steep section. Milk the hell out of it.

Fixed draws are gone-zo as of 10.10.10. Have fun cleaning.

11+, but certainly not 12. Watch out for batshit at the base of the traverse.

Steeping out onto the big jut out just feels great. This is a must do for the 11+ or 12- climber.

Says "lots o bolts to the chains" but you really just need 8 draws
