There is a tunnel blasted through the rock, and this route climbs a section of cliff that was blasted and therefore gets a "chipped" classification.Start on the far right side of the crag, this is the last route on the right side of the tunnel. Sustained climbing with several mid-5.11 moves up overhanging rock leads to an anchor with two bolts.......[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
