|Old Aid Wall aka Upper Echelon Wall
This is a nice, powerful line with multiple cruxes up the right side of the wall. Start with good edges and cruxes through many long reaches. There are plenty of horizontal rails and jugs to recover before most of the harder climbing. A nice, slab puzzle lies just before the chains.
Tailspin lies immediately left of the furthest right line - a warm-up - at the right arete.
10 bolts to anchor. 60m rope.
Long crux move.
Sickest move of the route.

This line is literally one of the best routes I have done in Colorado. Huge, gorilla swinging style between horizontal slashes, the rock was reminiscent of the smooth stone found at the New and climbed a lot like the classic route Cell Block Six at the Red River Gorge. Huge moves that get a bit dynamic with powerful and flowy sequences, this route is hyper classic. I am just plain impressed. DO THIS ROUTE!!!
