Description 

Two minutes from farther upcanyon from the Dali boulder is a number of newly established problems (2010) in a pristine setting at the base of the alpine slabs.


Getting There 

Walk approximately 200 meters up canyon from the Dali area, trending left until you reach a break in the trees and an old campsite with a firepit by a big boulder. The French Kiss Boulder is directly behind the campfire boulder and is easily identified by the unmistakable "Tongue" starting hold.

French Kiss V5 6C  CO : Alpine Rock : ... : French Kiss Area
Start with both hands on the awesome "Tongue" hold on the overhanging arete of the boulder. Tricky feet and core tension gets you off the ground and up to the pinch with a great thumb catch. Some amazing footwork positions you to shoot for the slot just below the lip after which you can reach the nobs above the lip. One of two heelhooks will set you up for the crux topout. Get burly or mantle elegantly, your choice!!!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
