Lisa Nelson on Chip Shot.
Begin just right of the Two Kids Mine, a prominent mine shaft with two holes, and old structures in the middle of the cliff. Climb up a shallow corner on small edges. Climbing to the anchor on the right is 10b, or continue through the roof for an 11a finish.
This is just North of Ouray across from the hot springs pool. Park at the Pool (not the mini golf center) and walk up the drainage across the street to the left of the mini golf center. There will be a gate and a NO TRESSPASSING sign. Currently the landowner is allowing us to climb and the No Trespassing sign is for hikers on the Horsethief Trail. The land from the approach gully to the Two Kids Mine is all on private property. Take the trail going right out of the drainage. Continue past an old mining sculpture below the mine and then take the next trail uphill to the cliff, cutting back left. A short scramble is required to reach a ledge, then traverse left to the start of the climb.
Bolts and sport anchor.
