Description 

This striking line just beckons to be climbed. Fun and physical - climb hands with the occasional fist towards the obvious flake above. Continue past the flake towards the welcoming corner and finish as for Destination' Planet Claire. The rock below the excellent clean crack is hollow and exfoliating and occasionally will sound out an earie "wonga wonga wonga".

Rap or lower from the ledge and a new tree-sling anchor. - a single 60m rope just makes it down with a couple feet to spare.

Location 

This ascends the obvious, left-leaning crack at the southern end of the Breakers (close to Greyrock summit-trail).

Protection 

Single set of cams with doubles from 0.75 - 1.

This is a fantastic pitch! Very strenuous and sustained - I haven't gotten it clean yet, but this route alone is well worth the short - scenic - (and pleasant) approach. Can't wait to get back up there. Woo Hoo! The Breakers are sick!!!

- The best 5.10 hand-crack around Fort Collins?
