This is the right route on the wall. It starts with 2 black bolts and is obvious. Good climb and very well-bolted. There are some decent rests as well as a little knee bar at the third bolt which isn't really needed but fun. There is potential for placing gear on the last part of the climb, as it is a great finger crack. So bring some cams if you're into that sort of thing. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
