4 out of 5 stars The Collosis Pitch 1

The first pitch probably only goes in at 5.9. From a large belay ledge head up some low angle rock to a vertical flake facing the right. Climb flake up slab to the first bolt. Traverse out past another bolt to another flake than up and to the right passed another 3 bolt. Some nice slab climbing leads you to a small flake up to a protruding rail then some easy moves to the belay ledge. 2 bolts at belay. The climbing above looks amazing but a little too difficult for me at this time.
