Description 

The sweet, overhung, north face is gritty, but the holds that go go really well. It's a perfect problem for summer, since it's in the shade most of the day. Again, the holds we used aren't bad, they just seem to be the only good options on the overhung face.

Getting There 

Park at Triangle Boulder Area right as you enter the area. The easiest way to get there is to walk down the road 6 minutes, and it's a stone's throw off the road on the right hand side.

Climbing Season

For the Nine Mile Hill area.

Start with a left hand sidepull crimp and a right hand on a good ledge. With a drop knee, head to the obvious hold. This is possibly the crux according to some who have tried it. I found the next move out of the roof the hardest.From there, hit the sloper with the left, a sloping crimp with the right, and head to the rail just below the top. Top out. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
