Mike Williams on Powderhorn.

Description 

Climb a ways to the first bolt and then power up (crux) past some underclings to reach a ledge. The middle of the route is broken and fairly easy, but the route steepens near the top, offering a few more interesting moves on patina edges before the anchors.


Location 

Located just left of Black Powder, a striking hand crack.


Protection 

6 bolts, chain anchors

I found this to be a very fun climb. The start is quite pumpy, working through the underclings, then it's on to more delicate sequencial moves. Due to its location, Powderhorn gets a lot of shade on those hot summer days.

nice route, real pumpy of the ground on good underclings. After that it more like 5.9

I like this climb. Bit of a nasty landing before clipping the first bolt, I agree that it's pretty pumpy, I used a knee-bar at the undercling which helped tremendously. While the middle section is easy the rock is interesting. The final headwall will get you if you're burned out.
