Location: CO : Fort Collins : Poudre Canyon : Crystal Wall : Southwest Alcove : County Line (5.8)

Comments: A very nice 5.8. The start is a little devious as you hump over the initial bulge. The bulk of the climb features great edges and ledges. The finish is a little dicey if you take the slabby arete to the left or you can stem the opposite wall for a easier finish.

This is the first line from left to right in the Alcove.

Comments: This, the second line from left to right in the Alcove, is very entertaining. The start is a little nervy overhang. Then you get onto a sweet face with solid edges and a couple mono pockets before being confronted with the slabby arete crux.

Comments: This is a super fun short line with moderate difficulty edging for the first third, then a crimper side pull crux that gets you into a nice finger crack before the anchors. As far as I can tell from the descriptions of the other routes in the Alcove, this is the third (and last) line from left to right. The one left of this is Inyerbuttkwa (10+), then left of that is County Line (5.8).

I'm not sure about the 11+ rating. I'll cast my vote for mid 10.
