Description 

This is secluded. It has the same rock as the rest of Clear Creek Canyon. It is best known for the best highline slacklining in the state. There are some new sport climbs going up.

Highlines:
"I'm on TV", 140' long and 100' high.
"Coloradical", [180'] long and 60' high.
"Rad Ass Hoodie", 84' long and 45' high.

Coloradder Than You, 265', just above Coloradical.

Getting There 

Expect a 20 minute, steep approach. The trail starts (39.743065N 105.406969W) on the west end of Tunnel 5, cross over the North side of the bridge so you can be on the north side of the river. Hike along the river to the West until you see a small trail leading up the canyon to your right (North). The trail is difficult and not well marked, but there are some cairns along the way. The trail travels over the saddleback of the ridge to the West of the canyon to the next canyon at its top.

Scott projecting his new line, Don't Hate.

Don't Hate 5.12d 7c 28 IX 28 E6 6b  CO : Golden : ... : Stoked Bowl
Off the porch-like alcove in Lower Stoked Bowl is a slab that leads to an overhanging arete. Climb the first 6 bolts at easy 5.11 to an awkward to mount ledge for an awesome rest. From here, 2 more bolts protect the V7, progressively steeper and thinner boulder problem. There is a jug to finish and chains with fixed carabiners on top....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

This looks like the amphitheater of sorts that is up and behind the Creekside/Solid Gold area, and it is a cool spot to hang out. When I explored up there, I definitely noted good potential for new routes. Short, steep ones above the sun deck and some longer moderate ones that you pass as you traverse into this 'stoked bowl'.

The approach listed above is good, and what I eventually descended with, as I would NOT recommend the more direct gully approach from below (likely the same approach Richard took when he set up Solid Gold).

Those highlines look wild!!

What are people's thoughts on adding an area that has been primarily developed for high lining? Obviously, the couple routes going in up there are climbing, but would anyone like more beta on the lines, or is this best left off of this site?

Intelligent comments appreciated.

Coloradical is listed here as 100' when it is 180'. It was previously the longest highline in Colorado. In Fall 2013, Mickey Wilson bolted and did the first sends on Coloradder Than You 265' just above Coloradical.
