Who Haas Those Holds? 5.10+ 6b+ 21 VII+ 20 E3 5b CO : South Platte : ... : The Cascades Wall
The name came from when the first ascentionist broke several key holds all at once during the crux sequence while way runout above a ledge and nearly took the big ride. (The rock has cleaned up since then.)P1: 5.6 Start up a large, black, left-facing corner and belay at a sloping stance on a ledge (100').P2: 5.10+ R. Climb up past a bush, and then traverse right to gain a hanging finger crack. Crank up the crack to a ledge then do thin, crux face moves up a vertical headwall.
