BETA PHOTO: Calico at the Puoux, Glenwood Canyon, CO.

Description 

Calico is a short, bouldery route with big moves on good holds and sharp, sharp rock. The rock is beautiful and the climbing is good and the only thing holding it back is the route's short length.

Location 

Calico is one of two routes located in a small gully on the far right side of the Puoux. Scramble up and right from the base of Graybeard (aka NoName 1) to gain the gully where Unknown 5.Easy is located. Scramble/hike up the gully until you find Calico and another short route to its left, Twister, which currently has a piece of red tape on the first hanger.

Protection 

4 (3?) bolts and anchor.
