Long multi pitch sport climbs in CO?

I've been living in Colorado Springs, CO for a couple of months now. I've been climbing the local crag nonstop. Just wondering if anyone knew of any long (more than 3 pitches) multi pitch sport routes in Colorado, preferably not too far from the Springs.

This exact thread ocurred within the last 3 months. You should do a search for it.

I can't find it; you'll probably never find it either.

Anyway, here's a couple:

and a couple here http://www.mountainproject.com/...eek-canyon/105744243

No big clumps though and I'm not as familiar with the multi-pitch sport possibilities down in the southern part of the state.

I also don't know about routes in the south, but I'll put in a plug for one that Shocka pointed you to. Brown Palace (5.11) is definitely worth a trip up to NoCo. As per that thread that Shocka mentioned (just found it: http://mountainproject.com/v/tallest-sport-climb-in-co/107446843#a_107447270), I think the conclusion was that BP is the longest fully-bolted sport route in CO. Another longer one in the South Platte was mentioned, but it might be considered mixed and has some sections that are very run-out if I remember what I read correctly.

Each time I've done BP, we've either had it to ourselves, or once there was another party whom we passed on our rap back down. But I think it is getting more traffic (due to threads like this... maybe I shouldn't be so quick to tout this route).

Two in CCC were mentioned (Solid Gold is 5.12a, and Fools Gold 5.12+).

Brown Palace is very accessible (<10min approach), very well bolted and an easy rap back down the route. If you climb quickly and have energy left over that day you could do a few other routes at easier and harder grades on the same wall. You could also make a weekend out of it and camp near the Monastery and do some single pitch sport there, or do some trad/mixed on Combat Rock.
