Macho Picasso.


This is a beautiful line that packs quite a wallop. Climb a short overhang to a burly dyno. One more move gets you to a bomber jug. Rest up, because then the route gets hard.


This is on Haus Rock's south side, left of Crystal Ball.


4 bolts, one of which has a fixed draw on it.

Fixed draw on the last bolt is gone, but with a 1.5-draw, you can clip it low off the crystal undercling before moving into the upper crux.

Two hard boulder problems separated by a honking jug. The lower dyno can be made more manageable for short and/or weak people (i.e. me) with some jessery.

Be sure to top after your point for a solid view of the Rockies, even if you need to do a one- or two-rester!

Fantastic route! I felt like the upper sequence past the jug was a touch harder than the deadpoint to the sloper, definitely feels better with cooler temps.
