|Little Half Dome
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.

This is a fun route and is very challenging. There are several crux areas. The first is above the first bolt on a thin slab. The second crux is at the overlap there are small finger pockets below the overlap, and you have to reach for a large jug up high. There is a good rest here before the route continues up a thin seam on a smooth slab. It is not a bad route! You can merge with Dog Day Afternoon after the anchor if you wish....[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!
