  • Description 

    This crag is probably best described by its name, except that there appears to be 4 cracks. Too much THC? This is a small crag in the vicinity of the Blob Massif, Bitty Buttress area, Voodoo Wall, which is lower & closer to the road. It is probably worth a visit if short on time, low on motivation, or if you're a wanderer. 4 one-pitch, intermediate routes here on less-than-perfectly-beautiful rock sum up this crag.

    L->R these are:

    A. Far Left, 9, 1p, gear.
    B. Catalyst, 9, 1p, gear.
    C. Hesitation, 10-, 1p, gear.
    D. Mirage, 9+, 1p, gear.
    E. Reach for It, 9-, 1p, 95', gear.
    F. B-Line For The Tree Line, 7, 1p, 90', gear.
    G. Get Over Yourself, 7 PG-13, 1p, 90', gear.
    H. It's Just Rock Climbing , 8 PG-13, 1p, 90', gear.

    Getting There 

    On the north side of the creek. Park in the lot for Cob Rock; the Cliff is to the north, below Bitty Buttress (or down and right from East Blob Rock). Head for East Blob Rock, and about 2/3 of the way up, follow the footpath to the right. You should run right into the cliff.

    There are four cracks right next to each other on this rock. Far Left is... I don't need to say it. This climb goes just to the right of a tree in the middle of the rock. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
