Description

G. Invisible Touch, 12-, 1p, 50', bolts.
H. Eternal Vigilance, 12, 1p, 50', bolts.


Getting There 

This is in the general area of Surprising Crag and Sport Park, which lies on the S side of the road. Park as for Sport Park, cross the creek, head left or E. Look for a slightly-overhanging wall low. 3-5 minute approach. You can access it from Surprising Crag, but that is more difficult.

From Peter Franzen "Overhung Wall...lies below Surprising Crag; these can be approached by heading downstream (N) shortly after crossing the creek, then heading uphill to the crags."

Mark Rolofson has an excellent Boulder Canyon Sport & Adventure Climber's Guide, Volume II, The Upper Canyon. Consider it for more details.

Warf Factor 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Overhung Wall
This is a high quality route on the largely ignored Overhung Wall below Sport Park. No chipping or Z-clipping here. This is the 3rd route from the left and climbs out the largest section of overhanging rock. Restful, vertical slab climbing leads to fantastic, jug climbing through the overhang and a crux at the lip (a kneebar is very useful). After pulling the lip, easier slabby climbing leads to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
