This is the second route listed in Greg Hand's comment on Centennial. It is the first bolted route on the left of Lower Bowling Alley.

It is a short, sustained route for a 5.9. It climbs the vertical wall with good but "not quite in the right place" holds. Be careful clipping the first bolt.

There are rings at the top.


Quickdraws, 3 bolts.

This route is "Dry Run", 5.10a, first ascent by Dan Hare and Stella Adams, July 2002, according to Mark Rolofson's new guidebook "Boulder Canyon Sport & Adventure Climber's Guide Volume II - The Upper Canyon".

Bouldery start to good jugs; you might want to stick clip the first bolt.

A great cool down, or for someone who wants lead experience.

Be sure to stick to the left up the crimps as opposed to starting on the right and working left to first bolt. Much better moves.

Wish it was longer, but it was not bad. Felt hard for 5.9.
