Featured Route For Road Rock
Rock Climbing Photo: Kevin about to do the crux.

The Hand 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  Colorado : Boulder Canyon : Road Rock
The crux of this route is between the 2nd and 3rd bolt. Both my friend and I thought it was easier than the 10b rating given in D'Antonio's book. We thought it was about 5.9. There is a hidden hold at the crux which eases one's passage. You can place gear above the bolts, on easier terrain, if you wish. It would be a long fall if you fell near the anchor having placed no gear....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
