The Free Tibet sector refers the section of climb between the Roof Area and the Pool Area. It contains some of the longer routes at Cascade that climb aesthetic aretes and corners. Several of these routes face more up-canyon than others in the canyon and therefore stay shady a bit later into the afternoon.
From the large, prominent overhangs and roof of the aptly named Roof Area, continue hiking about 100 yards past the spring that has washed out the trail. The first route, By-Tor (5.10), is just past the spring. The rest of the Free Tibet sector is where the trail flattens out between the wall and some large trees.

This route is fantastic! It is a gently overhanging, power endurance, fun factory where finger strength and fancy footwork are the key to maximum funning! Start with a few bolts of enjoyably .11- climbing. Get an almost jug at the third bolt, and prepare thyself as the angle steepens and the holds get significantly more fun (smaller) and no rest till you clip the anchors!The grade is a rough estimate, I really have no idea. It's definitely 5th class though, that's for sure. As for the name, it...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
