Though comprised of Telluride conglomerate, this is a super solid route. A lot of fun, with some exciting moves to make. The crux for me was at the first bolt. The draw kept getting in the way of my leg, but there are small holds to boot. A big move up to a jagged looking jug. Easier if you're not 5' 7". After that, the foot work is big and easy if utilized well. At about 70' is a small ledge and roof, with a sweet layback on two sloper to the right, with a big left foot up. Sparse hands above that but easy beyond the last bolt.


the route is in the middle of the pipeline wall. it is the 15th routein from parking, just a bit after the small falls thatgo over the trail in.


8 bolts to chains

My 5'2" girlfriend found the roof (higher up) to be the crux as she could not reach the aforementioned slopers. I (5'10") found the crux around the first bolt.
