I chose this for P1 up to the large block with the little tree, ~35m. Comfy belay spot and you can talk to your second. The second pitch will get you 6 feet below the very peak of the south pinnacl

This is a novel auto blocking belay device. I think it works quite well, depending on rope thickness and sheath quality, it belays very smooth. Great to lower with. You gotta love over engineering.

Camping spot next to the bowl of tears. We had giant boulder above to protect from rock fall. July 6 2008 about 5:45am. Amazing when the sun came up. Beautiful.

Comments: Taylor-B, the U.S. Forest Service broke the law by putting a pay station on the state highway going to the top. They won a poorly executed lawsuit against them but realized that eventually they would lose, so they came up with a scheme and brought Denver Parks into the fold. They made these improvements after the lawsuit and got Denver to agree to a partnership to split the money. The surrounding land is US Forest Service land and is paid for with your tax dollars already.
