    Mister Mantle 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a PG13  CO : South Platte : ... : Block Tower
    The crux is about 1/3 of the way up the 1st pitch It is well protected and the fall (if you take one) is a relatively gentle pendulum. The climbing is steep and sporting! The moves are elegant with no giveaway sections. There is steep slab climbing to a mantle before each bolt. There is no way to dog any part of this pitch. You have to climb it! There is a large ledge to belay from. Pitch two is a hand/fist crack....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
