    Rock Climbing Photo: Just after the crux reach....

    Butt Luscious 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  Colorado : Boulder Canyon : ... : Upper Wall
    This climb starts on the upper tier of the Clock Tower, a bit left of the mid-point on the crag. A single hard pull (5.11c) up a blankish start leads to a good ledge and a very long reach to a decent horn, a very height-dependent move, and the crux at 5.11+ (but look at the comments). Haul up over the horn to great 5.11 face climbing on excellent edges and deep, incut flakes.It is a great climb worth all three stars for the climbing moves, continuity, and quality of the stone....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

    Quite a few discrepancies between Bob's book and online info with the grades. It's difficult to tell which routes are which sometimes because of the plethora of bolts. A picture with the exact lines would be helpful for this area.
