There are a ton of new bolts here. I have never seen a soul here. The rock is good where it's good and scary where it's bad. Stick to the friction. Do not test the waters with any jugs.

This is on the left past Atlantis. I think there are 2 parking lots. I will post better directions.

If you are climbing on the Back Porch, you might as well do this route.The route seems to have two cruxes. The first 10 feet seems to be the first one and the last 10 feet seems to be the second one. It seems like you could start to the left to make it easier. The first climbing is on finger nail thick edges. You can set up the top rope by walking around to the left....[more] Browse More Classics in CO

In 2002, I bolted the black streak on right side, .11+/.12-. Also added anchor and a couple bolts to route on front right side, one to protect a 5.10 mantle move and one up near top. Also added a slab variation to 5.9 and one bolt to protect moves off anchors on upper pitch. I don't who added two pitch slab route on left side of formation. Good route, but could use one more bolt to protect crux on last moves of second pitch. 5.11.

Either Robby or Lee Marsh, or maybe both did the first ascent of the wide crack. Shitty rock quality. Anyone else noticed that the best quality rock in the Platte tends to have the longest walk from the road?

We had to bail on a Light D off of one of the last bolts before the anchors on P.1 of the "Unknown .10d" on Little Half Dome.

MountainManny, your biner is still there. These routes really don't get climbed very often!
