Description 

Yet another intriguing rock/large boulder in the complex Dinosaur Mountain area just NNW of Southern Dinosaur Egg. Here lies at least 2 decent routes: Cloud Walker, bolted 10c, and Rehatch, trad 5. To descend, rappel from the top from a bolt/pin anchor. Then down climb a short way to the ground.

Getting There 

Approach from NCAR either from Bear Creek and head up the gully E of Southern Dinosaur Egg (and short of Stonehenge/Thought Control 9) to the base. This is the rock just NNW of Southern Dinosaur Egg and SSE of Der Freischutz. Or approach via the Mallory Cave Trail just past Der Zerkle and down a gully towards Bear Creek and past Der Freischutz.

This is just one of those lines that is obscure but is sort just asking to be climbed when perusing R. Rossiter's Flatirons guidebook, p 106. It lies on the East face parallel & just North (right) of Rehatch. It's probably a route only for the Dinosaur Mt. fans looking for yet another line. It is a bit rough around the edges. Precarious flakes along the way suggested few, if any, prior passages. It looks harder than it turns out to be.Hike from NCAR to the Mesa Trail. Head South to...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
