Seasonal Raptor Closures January 1- July 31st MORE INFO >>>


With the generous permission of Ian-Spencer Green and Stewart, I rebolted part of Pagan Wisdom and this route to yield a clean, impressive, and futuristic line that used to be called "New Dawn Fades". This route starts just right of Rapture, and follows two bolts of 5.10 climbing to an absolutely show stopping, 8 foot dyno from sloping jugs to a brick in the roof (which has room for one hand, slopes the wrong way and is harder to hold than a greased pig!), then finish up the "easier" part of the climb, Pagan Wisdom.

The name implies a bizarre explosion, which is what's needed to get through the crux....


Right smack in the middle of the Spray Wall shield, below Pagan Wisdom....


7 bolts and chains.

If I could climb it, I'd give it four stars. You look awesome in the video Ben. Keep pushing and bringing what's possible to the Pikes Peak Region!

Darryl, I appreciate the positive comments, and also the incredible amount of work you and Dan put into making hard routes for my generation in the pikes peak region. I think that sometimes people overlook how much effort it is to create new things, and hopefully more visionary new climbers from The Springs can help take it to the next level....
