    Road Rash (or Tweaked?) 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  Colorado : Boulder Canyon : Road Rock
    The crux of this route is on the slab above the highest overhang. My partner and I both thought it was easier than it is rated in D'Antonio's guide (where it is called "Tweaked"). We think it is an 11a, not a 12a. We thought it was easier than Road Kill to the left, with which it shares an anchor. This builds up your confidence after struggling on Roadrash which is supposedly easier....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
