Description:

Some tough cranking for the grade and lots of stand on your feet climbing. The third pitch has given many rockies regulars a grip! just right of Geriatric. Description to be found at www.rocksolidguide.com/econoline_topo.htm

All in all a easy route, didnt really find a 10a move as long as you climbed the proper line. Theres the odd spot where it seems a streach for pro but couldnt say that its run out. A fast route with average of 4 gear placements per pitch. A single rack to #3 with micros is all you need and a few draws and slings.

With Jackie and Steve. I led the two crux pitches, both requiring typical run out traverses on cheese grater limestone...swinging back into a solid corner if you fall...basically typical EEOR trad. Neither pitch was overwhelming though, however, I was starting to curse on 2nd traverse (P6) until I saw the the lower bolt. Traverse straight over and reach down to clip. One more bolt, piton needs to be hammered back in, mostly run out, but easy climbing for the grade. The first traverse is truly a mile long, but has 4 bolts across as I recall. The last one is hidden until you commit into the corner. After the initial corner, impossible to protect, just runout on 4 bolts.

A nice route though the crux pitch really wanders and gives some rope drag (even with half-ropes).
