me on my redpoint
I saw a guy today on the back rock wall on a pure dry tool sport route. The route is close to the base of the first walk down the school room and has 6-7 close spaced bolts and looks really fun. The route is not in the MP database yet. I saw the bolts for this route last year but it was intriguing to watch someone climb the thing. Any info on what it is called and how hard it is?

Climb it and report back? If the bolts are closely spaced, what's the worry? Jeff Kent

Dragon's Tongue - Vail, Co.
Does the route consist of two short pitches?

I climbed something there last year that might be what you're talking about. Two pitches, fun, felt to be about m5.

Is it one of the cafeteria routes on this map:

Done the first pitch. It's more like M6. Not sure the name but a fun route none the less. There's actually a few more over there, some trad, some sport. Ryan N

so the route is called Cafeteria, it is M5-M6. The first pitch has 9 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Really cool dry tool line. Second pitch also looks good. Dave Cummings

Yeah, M6 seems a bit right from what I remember. Great route. Noah8000

I think that area is called the "Rock Park" according to the guide book and it can go all the way up to the highway in 3ish pitches. there are various bolted routes up that back wall AFAIK. Cale Hoopes
