This is a classic in every way. Powerful in your face initial boulder problem, followed immediately by fun, pumpy, and thoughtful climbing up a right-facing flake. Milk the rests as this baby doesn't let up until you are standing on the ledge next to the chains. Awesome!


This line is the first bolted line to the right of the crack, Moose Knuckles.


10 bolts to sport chains. This one is long, must have at least 60m of rope!

Great climb. Basically a good boulder problem to a jug, clip a bolt, and repeat. Since the route overhangs, a complete rest at the jugs is not possible. Furthermore, fun climbing without a single bad section until the anchor.

Edit: Found a no hands "rest" about half way up. Allows one to de-pump, but may take too much core strength to call it a rest.

This route is extremely rad! Cool boulder problem start to pumpy slightly overhanging climbing for 85 feet. It's really good....

Stiff for Front Range 5.12a but def not 5.12b. A very good climb with a couple tough moves and a nice mix of face/crack technique.
