Description 

This adventurous route is found on the Lower Breakers. When the trail hits the main wall, head down the hill to the base of the lower tier of rock. This route follows the left facing dihedral in the center of the formation. P1: (zero stars) This route starts at a mossy left leaning crack system. This crack seemed a little harder than 5.6. This moist move can be over come with a little pulling on gear. Belay below an obvious OW. P2: (1 to 3 stars depending on state of the hand crack) Follow a fun SQ chimney in the LF dihedral for 25 feet. Small pro can be had in a small crack to the right. Stem and lieback up to a beautiful hand crack. This pitch would be one of the best 5.6 crack pitches in Colorado, if it was not for the pine needles and dirt that collects in the hand crack. The leader should being a nut tool, in case you are the first person to climb this route this year. Descent: Follow the ledge system to the right and do a double rope rap to the ground. The natural extention to this route is "Easy Sailing" (5.6), which climbs the Upper Breakers in 2 pitches. (recommended)
