High Tides is a fun little number with cool position right above Clear Creek.
Begin with moderate stemming up a chimney on the right to get set up on the ledge underneath the steep wall. 2 bolts will take you through the overhanging jugs to a crux pulling over the overhang. Cruise fun climbing past 2 more bolts to one more tricky sequence getting to the anchor.
It has excellent rock with fun moves that are well protected. It'd get more stars if it was only longer.
Where you at?
This is located directly underneath the main ledge system for Lower Capitalist Crag, right above the river.
4 bolts + 2 bolt anchor.

A fun way to escape the heat of summer. Still accessible even during this exceptionally high runoff.

Great bouldery moves. I highly recommend this route for anyone wanting a quick pump.
Stabilizing at the third clip can be done either with great balance or a big bump to a jug.

Anyone else move through the roof by using the rattly fists in the upper crack? Because that was awesome.
