Description 

Frasco's Toe is a high alpine crag that sits at the lower end of the long, western ridgeline of Frasco Peak, 13,876'. Just above the saddle between Mt. Champion and Frasco, this crag is at an elevation of 12,600'. It is NW facing, so afternoon/evening sun during the summer months. Only 1 route exists on this beautiful granite crag....

Getting There 

4WD up the main Half Moon Creek drainage (between Mt. Elbert/Mt. Massive) all the way to the Champion Mill (9 miles/2-3 creek crossings). Depending on whether the gate is open, either continue walking or 4WD (about 1 mile) further up the road that gains the distinct saddle between Mt. Champion and Frasco Peak. Frasco's Toe is just a 5 minute walk to the east of the road up near the saddle.

Worthy Endeavor 5.11a/b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  CO : Alpine Rock : Frasco's Toe
Start off in the rightward of 3 cracks at the base til the crack starts to tighten. Step right, clipping 2 bolts, to gain the long, leftward-leaning crack system to the top. There are multiple 5.10 cruxes with the thin 5.11 crux coming after the 2-bolt traverse. Lots of "potato chip flakes" needed to be cleaned and still more to do....
