Description 

Located left of Wild Bore we have a slabuless route that show cases two main crux sections! I'll just say there's one crux down low with another just past the mid-point before you pull onto a rest ledge before moving up to the chains! This is a super fun line, and it is great for new leaders as I put in a good deal of tightly spaced bolts through both crux sections! I love this slab and found it to be a worthwhile wall to climb on! I will add some beat photos and some climb pics when I get a chance!! Fun line!

Location 

The line is found on the East Colfax wall just left of the route Wild Bore! It's a slab route to not be missed. The approach is the same as for East Colfax. Park at the Primo Wall parking and head downstream to where the current Tyrol is set to access The Armory and all the walls located on the other side of the river. Once at the Tyrol (before crossing the creek), just look up and right and the slab will come into view. Enjoy cuz I did!

Protection 

11 bolts plus chains.

Great new route! Very funny, and better (imho) than Wild Bore.

Luke ain't kidding. He really did invest some hardware in this route. I think 4' is the biggest fall you could possibly take on this thing. And, that's if you blow a clip with a handful of slack.

Super fun route - also thought it was better than Wild Bore. I counted 10 bolts.

This is a fun route. I think it is the most difficult of the three 5.7s here. It is still 5.7 though.

This climb is actually really fun. It is rare that you find a sport route this long at this grade. Great for new leaders, since the bolts are so close together that it almost feels like you are in the gym. Only weird part is the large ledge after the first bolt. The climb doesn't really start until after the first bolt.
