Unknown climber from Colorado working out the move...


Brutal crimp fest on amazing gold colored marble/quartz stone. Thin. Technical.


This goes up the middle of the steep, blank looking face in the middle of the cliff.


5 bolts to closed cold shuts.

Great route, easier than Jason overall even though it has a slightly harder bouldery start. So many crimps at the second bolt; so many possible sequences on small crimps. Definitely found an easier sequence though than I've seen others do at the start and avoided using any holds that are on Jason minus the first jug. Awesome route. 5.12b

Avoid the Jason holds out to the left of the pocket and gaston at the crux for a super sweet, direct way to do the crux! I haven't tried using the left Jason holds at the crux but I'm sure that way is awesome as well, albeit it makes it a slightly less independent line.
