Description 

This route is one of the most striking & aesthetic lines in the Poudre Canyon and is well worth a trip up to the EO.

Start in the short off-width crack, pull a small roof, boulder problem crux, and keep it together up the long headwall. Placing gear can be a bit tricky, especially through the crux, so be careful.

Location 

This is one of the first climbs you come to after completing the hike.

Protection 

Standard rack + bring extra thin gear and a #5 Camalot for the off-width. There is a two-bolt ring anchor at the top of the climb. TR work to suss the gear and moves is highly suggested...but getting to the top of the route is tricky.

This is, by far, the most striking trad line in the Poudre Canyon. Absolutely incredible climbing and a brilliant effort by Mr. Cross.

Needs a second ascent!
