This problem starts in the same cave as Part of a Warmup Traverse. Instead of climbing out right (southwest) as Part of a Warmup Traverse does, climb the left-leaning crack directly above the cave.

Start in the cave, make your way out, and move up and over the tiered blocks following the main crack. Either downclimb V-easy to the left of the problem or continue up to a topout. For the topout, walk off to the northeast which allows a short downclimb to get to the base of the problem.

This problem was called "The Left Crack, V0" in Colorado Bouldering: Front Range by Benningfield and Samet. If there's a more accepted name, let me know and I'll update. I enjoyed this in its own right and thus have added it.


This problem starts as with Part of a Warmup Traverse, which is directly behind (west) of The Cube, which has Breashear's Crack II on its northwest face and Done Deal Dyno on its southeast face.

Per jmapping: this is left of Offwidth.


A crashpad. The landing is great, but due to constant, left-leaning angle of the crack, the end at the top is a full pad length left of the start.
