A good view of the crack.

Description 

This route climbs up a slab in the center of the rock to below a small roof. Climb the roof (crux). After the roof move left to the handcrack and easier climbing. The crack is really fun climbing.

Location 

This is the center of the three routes. Lower or rappel from the bolt anchor on top.

Protection 

Standard rack to a #3 Camalot. I only placed up to a #2, but a three will fit. There are two fixed pins below the little roof. There is a two bolt cold-shut anchor on top.

The shelf is loose. Please be careful!

There is a roof flaky thing that is very loose, I placed a 0.3 cam underneath it, and the whole entire flake shifted. So I immediately removed my cam, went left, and found another way up it. Spoooky, belayers and climbers, watch out!

Best trad climb I've done in Clear Creek otherwise thus far.
