The Wading Pool gets A.M. shade and P.M. sun. It has a good concentration of moderate clip-ups.

Rock Climbing Photo: The Front Nine goes right up the great wide crack....

The Front Nine 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  Colorado : Ouray vicinity (rock) : ... : The Wading Pool
This is one of the only real crack climbs at the Pool Wall. And, it's pretty darn good. Climbs up the great wide crack just right of the Ginsu Arete (Look Sharp & Be Sharp). When you get to the wide bit there is actually a nice finger crack right next to it, so no wide gear is necessary. It ends at chains on the left wall....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
