A little more South Platte:

Scorpio Crack (5.10+). I think this thing is slightly overhanging the whole way (fingers and thin hands). Haven't made it there yet to climb it, though.

"Scorpio Crack" (5.10+) you say? Looks like a perfect hang-dog moan fest if you bring along enough cams to hang on. In any event, an athletic tour-de-force.

Thanks for posting. Thinking about a Colorado holiday this April. Where is "Scorpio" in the Platte exactly? Near Sphinx Park?

Scorpio is outside of Woodland Park, off of Rampart Range Road. A little grainy but still classic. 5.10 fingers at the start and then hands to the top, slightly overhanging.

Love Mr Natural, haven't been on it since that guy got killed by the rockfall over there on Apron Jam though.

I'd agree with P1 and P2 being such. But maybe you ran them together?

Positive Vibrations at the Hulk had a whole lot of splitter. The most jams I've done in a day, that's for sure.

Not really the best splitter crack, but a recent picture of the opening half of a cool pitch (red and yellow camalots) on a nice climb.

Yanqui- Thanks. I thought there was a reason it looked so familiar, Iíve done that route. Canít remember the name, or formation, but the lines... I always remember a sexy crack.
