Located on the Upper Wall of the Clock Tower, this route is the 2nd route from the far right side of the face. The first bolt will be obvious as it is almost on the ground, but could come in handy. A bouldery start, leading to a mantle brings you to the PG-13 part. If you are short, (under 5'9") clipping the 3rd bolt will require you to make an extra move and would indeed be a groundfall. Be careful. The upper face is a jug haul as stated in the guidebook. ...[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.
