Little Scraggy Dome is another place for some great Platte slab climbing. The scenery is outstanding, it is quiet, and it feels remote. It is West facing making it ideal for mornings on hot summer days or afternoons in the Spring, Fall and Winter. The difficulty currently ranges from 5.7 to 5.11 and is home to perhaps one of the best 5.10a slab routes in the Platte area. Over the past few years there has been new route activity and some excellent well protected slab routes have been put up. I am not sure who is behind the new route activity but whomever it is should be commended for excellent work.
From US 285, take CR 126 South and go 4.3 miles past Buffalo Creek to Forest Service Road #550. Go right on FS 550 and follow the road for 2.2 miles to a little pullout on the left hand side of the road. Follow an access trail (an old 4x4 road) through a field and then along a very small stream until it connects with the Colorado Trail. Take a left on the Colorado Trail and in about 250-400 yards you will be standing below Little Scraggy Dome. Another few minutes of scrambling are required to reach the base.

Two Jews Blues 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a CO : South Platte : ... : Little Scraggy Dome
This route is towards the climbers left of the rock formation and to the right of the climbs "5.10+" and "Let Me Cry". I stumbled on to this climb a couple years ago and still can not get it out of my mind. Look for a never ending line of shiny bolts that lead up to and through a headwall feature about halfway up.The climb consists of three pitches of very well-protected, slab climbing on beautiful granite. No route finding required.P1: Step up and clip the first bolts and make a delicate move...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
