Featured Route For Lower Wall
For me, the crux was getting through the crack before I was too pumped and trying to reach the super bomber hold right above it with my 5'9" stature.

Pass the Ditchie 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a  CO : Glenwood Springs : ... : Lower Wall
Start on the same block as for NoName 4. Head leftward up the short slab to the base of a right-facing corner w/ a crack. Follow this for 10 feet then make a balance move (read: find good feet) up & right out of the corner to a jug & fixed pin just right of a very small tree @ the start of a left-trending flake. Follow this flake up & left for a short ways then straight up to the anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
