  • Description 

    While maybe not technically on Tremont Mountain, this climb is on the very end of a long knobby continuous ridge that leaves the summit and trends south for a couple miles. At the end of this ridge above CO-46 are two tall rock walls called Ralston Roost and Son of Ralston. These formations are covered somewhat in the Falcon Guide #23 Lyons Area guidebook.

    Climb vert cracks through broken ledges low on the route and pass a couple bushes. Then, get into the sweet leftward angling hand crack for 25 feet or so to the top.

    Walk off to the east.


    South face of the formation Son of Ralston in Golden Gate Canyon State Park, Gilpin County Colorado. This formation is most easily accessed from Kriley Pond on CO-46 which runs E - W through the park. Park at the lot for the pond just off the highway and bushwhack up the mountain towards the formation.


    Cams and nuts to BD C4 #4, double up on the #2 & #1 sizes.

    It's a little dirty below the crack, but once you exit that and get in the crack, it's great.

    Wish it was longer!
