Description 

This crag is probably best described by its name, except that there appears to be 4 cracks. Too much THC? This is a small crag in the vicinity of the Blob Massif, Bitty Buttress area, Voodoo Wall, which is lower & closer to the road. It is probably worth a visit if short on time, low on motivation, or if you're a wanderer. 4 one-pitch, intermediate routes here on less-than-perfectly-beautiful rock sum up this crag.

L->R these are:

A. Far Left, 9, 1p, gear.
B. Catalyst, 9, 1p, gear.
C. Hesitation, 10-, 1p, gear.
D. Mirage, 9+, 1p, gear.
E. Reach for It, 9-, 1p, 95', gear.
F. B-Line For The Tree Line, 7, 1p, 90', gear.
G. Get Over Yourself, 7 PG-13, 1p, 90', gear.
H. It's Just Rock Climbing , 8 PG-13, 1p, 90', gear.


Getting There 

On the north side of the creek. Park in the lot for Cob Rock; the Cliff is to the north, below Bitty Buttress (or down and right from East Blob Rock). Head for East Blob Rock, and about 2/3 of the way up, follow the footpath to the right. You should run right into the cliff.

Hesitation 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a  CO : Boulder Canyon : Short Cliff w/ Three Cracks
This is the third crack from the left. I have seen this climb rated 5.9 (Rossiter) and 5.10a (Rolofson). The group I went with couldn't agree, 'cause the start is thinner than Catalyst (5.9), but not as slick on the feet. I would say about the same. Anyhow, straightforward line, fingercrack to start with, then face or crack above that. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
