Description 

The Dinosaur's Foot is an elongate formation with several bolted lines on it that take off on the "toes" of the foot. The lower toe routes provide moderate and well protected climbing on alpine granite (largely good stone, 5.7 to 5.10). The last toe has two short bolted lines that make hump up well worth the effort. A 60 meter rope will get you off everything, but it is also possible to scramble off right.


Getting There 

Hike to the right around Lily Lake. Just before the bench head up hill via a climbers trail that doesn't look like much immediately. The trail takes you up along a corridor between the main climbing formations. The Dinosaur's Foot is on the left and near the upper end of the corridor.

This route is located on a short slabby wall just uphill from 'The Fin'. This is as of 10/8/2001 the only bolted route on this wall, although I am sure there are other alternatives to this route once you gained the anchors, or from the protection available above to top rope. This route climbs the slabby wall past 4 bolts to the anchor, a good route to introduce climbers to leading, as the stances are very generous as well as the climbing. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Claude informed me he "put in a 5.9+ to the right of Middle Toe called Copradelite (a play on copralite, which is fossilized dino dung)." Thanks, Claude!
