High Tides is a fun little number with cool position right above Clear Creek. Begin with moderate stemming up a chimney on the right to get set up on the ledge underneath the steep wall. 2 bolts will take you through the over hanging jugs to a crux pulling over the overhang. Cruise fun climbing past 2 more bolts to one more tricky sequence getting to the anchor. Excellent rock with fun moves that are well protected. It'd get more accents if it was only longer.

I just barely onsighted this one. I had to take a few breathers on the ledge until I finally pulled off the tricky fist jam. Super fun climb but quite short. I did it when the river was very high (1100 cfs) so starting and coming down was a little tricky to avoid the water but it goes.
