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.
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 isn't my route, but citing the comments section for Dinosaur Foot, we can say that it has been there at least since 5/09. Leo Paik confirmed that "Claude put up a 5.9+" in this location and named it,"...a play on copralite, which is fossilized dino dung." So, to round out the Route list, I'll go out on the ledge.The crux is getting to the second bolt and only a little easier, if reachy, making the 3rd. (I'm 5'8") Pretty consistent "5.9+" climbing after that to the top since the angle drop...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
