Getting there!!!

The Rock!! Finger points to the Roof in the climb.
The climbing area is in Clear Creek, Colorado about 15 min from our house. The rock is called "Crystal Tower".

The warm up to the climb, with the Roof called "Skipping Stones" 5.11c.

Getting across the Creek "Tyrolian Traverse" to the climb, is almost as strenuous as the climb.
