This route has some excellent thin face climbing on the first half of the route. A green Alien can be placed between the first and second bolt. At a small ledge after the fifth bolt, move left and finish in a jam crack. If you move right, expect some exciting arete slapping to get back on route....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
