Featured Route For Main Slab
Unknown 2 on the right.

Unknown 2 5.10- 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  CO : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : Main Slab
This route ascends the right side of what could be an excellent slab climb. This route and its companion, Unknown 1, are unfortunate, because the slab climb that splits the two routes is great and would have been a wonderful addition to the area at a 10+ grade. Climb the right side of the slab, sometimes laying back the offwidth crack to its right. About 2/3 of the way up, make a sharp turn to the right and follow the bolts through the roof....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Some of the anchors on this crag are set in rock that might be subject to fracture with the wrong sequence of events. These are set in bulging rock that could fracture with freeze thaw cycles and/or micro-cracks in the rock. Please look carefully at these before trusting them without backing them up.
