Color Me Bad
|893 page views|
A 2-star route considering the initial 20 feet, which are sandy, but after that section, 3-star climbing and better rock. Jam and cling up the left-facing corner in an undulating crack that goes from slab to steep and back again a few times... It's pretty physical for the grade and a slot 2/3 of the way up is the crux. Smaller climbers may have an advantage there.
The worst part about this route was it's name- probably after a completely terrible pop-band in the early 90's who had a terrible and annoying MTV hit 'I Want to Sex U Up.' The low-light of my weekend was that running through my head for the first god-awful time in 15+ years.
This is a prominent left-facing corner about 1/2 way between GoldenEye and the 2 unnamed 10's East of there on the South Face of Technicolor. A plaque at the base names the climb 'Color Me Bad.'
A few smaller and larger pieces, but most predominantly 3-3.5" cams (blue camalots)
working the first crux

Interesting climbing, somewhat loose close to the top. I pulled of a couple of 10-30 pounds blocks on rappel. Be careful near the anchors.
