  • Description 

    Superdeath is a small and scruffy crag hardly worthy of note. A single route was done there in 1980, and but for it having recently been partially retrobolted (but never finished or cleaned), I would have suggested that nobody has been back there since, but obviously someone has....

    A. Superdeath, 10- R, 1p, 55', gear & bolts.
    B. Until Death Do Us Part, 10- R, 1p, 60', TR or maybe gear.

    Getting There 

    Park as for Electra Glide, and walk uphill on the far (south) side of the road. You will eventually see a small crag about 100' above the road up a very loose, gravelly gully. Careful attention will reveal a bolt near the crag's South margin on the left of the arete facing uphill.

    Walk back to the gully and scramble carefully up that (through the larger rcks and trees just above was better than up the (dangerously) loose gravel and eroded, teetering blocks. You will arrive at the base of the arete that you could see from the road. 2 bolts and a single bolt/ring anchor up top mark the recent and partial retrobolting of the (still) forgettable traditional line here.

    This is a somewhat more direct and singular line than Superdeath but less protected and a little harder.Start on the right side of the arete opposite the route Superdeath. Climb an incipient crack/seam to the bulge/roof. Place a hand-sized cam or more gear here, then cut left (first crux) onto the arete at that point for the green and yellow Alien placements, then go back right (second crux) onto the face that was started on to finish within arms length of the arete such that the top bolt ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
