Comments: You can start directly below the first bolt in the overhang area if you want to make this route even weirder.

Comments: Really enjoyed this route, worth the hike up there all by itself.

Comments: Highly recommend a stick clip for this route. There are some thin, kind of tricky moves off the deck and reaching the first bolt. While possible from the boulder at the base, it would be a lot easier with a stick clip. Blowing the first bolt would be really, really bad.
Otherwise, get on it!

Comments: I got on this yesterday, climbed to the big ledge, and looked up at the face. It looked real desperate, so I went a few feet left and climbed two bulges on good ledges which got me about halfway up the face. A few feet below the second to last bolt, I traversed right and climbed up the face for a few moves on good edges.
Climbing the route this way seems 11a (maybe lighter).
The route description implies you climb straight up the face from the ledge. but that looks to be a good bit harder than ... more >>

Comments: You know what Zac Attac? Guideline #1 for comments says don't be a jerk, it says nothing about being bourgeois or being a hard up maniac. So yeah.

Comments: Fun route but the rock's a bit dodgy towards the middle of the route, be careful pulling to hard on holds as you approach the roof section.

Comments: Very good route, current guidebook on Clear Creek notes the grade as 10b, I think that's a more appropriate grade.
