Description 

This route is the first thin crack furthest most left on the Poison Ivy Wall. The Poison Ivy Wall is located on the west side of No Name Creek approached by crossing the creek at the bridge and walking the utility road back downstream towards the obvious cliff band. Silver doors cut into the cliff for Glenwood Springs' water diversion facility. Up and to the right of the doors is the Poison Ivy Wall. This thin crack is also easily identified by a fixed pin located about fifteen feet up. Ascend the crack using thin gear and some face moves; head left towards a v-notch and rap anchors at 5.9- (I personally think it's 5.8, but friends think it's solid 9). A second longer top out is possible by heading into a right-leaning hand crack near the top and scurrying across a run out slab to descend off of a pine tree at 5.10+. Some of the old time locals are sure this crack was first climbed by Kor back in the day. Patrick Odenbeck and I cleaned out abundant vegetation (Garden Salad) on this route back in '97 to make it a regular and enjoyable addition to No Name cragging. The arete to the left of this climb makes an excellent top rope at 5.11+.

Standard granite rack (thinner gear helps).

What about the wild line that goes out left. With the ultra thin gear #2 lowe ball. I think a great name for that line would be Bad Diversion I remember it being really hard 11 mabe 12 bad pro too.

This thing eats little stoppers. I placed 5 micro BD and a 4 micro BD in a row followed by a medum, small, curved nut. A little scary for some one who learned how to climb on mostly medium cams.
