This is one cool route for Clear Creek that doesn't get as much traffic as it deserves.

Climb through some choss to get to the third bolt, and then launch through a series of deadpoints on slopey jugs until a balancy topout to the easy slab above. It is sustained throughout, though I thought there was a definite crux involving a crimp and a toss from a sloper.


This is right of Bunker Buster and goes out the roof.
