Rock Climbing Photos : Trad : Top of first pitch

Top of first pitch

Top of first pitch

Eldorado Canyon, Wind Tower, Calypso. Top of first pitch just past the roof traverse. This route has three starts 5,8,6 respectively from the bottom. Then climbs a nice dihedral(4) to a roof. Protect the roof and round it. Route goes at a (6) after you pass around the roof with minimal protection. Yellow and Green Alien worked well in piton scars just around the right side of the roof. Not bomber but good. If your pieces pull here - you pendulum into the block of the dihedral - not good. Climb gets a little slick here but is good climbing. Once you pass a few feet up then you begin to find some good pro again. Save a #3 for the top 10 feet of the pitch. Climber: bustinmins/Photo taken by Nextascent
