The Saber  Sucess!

With Steph. My favorite backcountry route in RMNP to date. I essentially soloed up to the base of the 1st (crux) pitch. It is full on and sustained 5.10 by CO standards. Takes a lot of small gear. The next pitch is very easy. The 3rd pitch is run out at the beginning, but not near as challenging as the first pitch. The fourth pitch has to be one of the better 5.9 leads in RMNP. Cool exposure and if your pro is extended properly, you can run a full 200'. The descent seemed really straight forward to me despite all the noise on
