  • Description 

    This route is located just below the Wall of Winter Warmth. Start left of "Alpha Bob" and make a tedious mantle past a bolt. Climb up to a roof, placed a medium friend, clip a bolt and continue up seams past two more bolts (and gear) to the anchor. Good route!


    Protection 

    Small-to-medium gear and four bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.


    Location 

    Between Mini Moe and Alpha Bob.

    Hey, there's another Closed Open Space at Ralston Buttes in Jeffco too. This must be some kind of trend. Overpaid and overstaffed county agencies keeping us out of their private parks......

    If you think the mantle is way hard for 5.9 (as I do) you can climb the easier 10+/11- slab to the right or climb the corner on the left and step right to the first bolt.

    This is a good alternative to The Slit to approach the Left Side, Direct Cop Out, etc. routes.
