It needs more than hangers! It needs new bolts. Yikes! The route is on the right from this perspective starting on the obvious ledge.

The slab under and right of the nose is a perfect place for people who aspire to do the real hard Platte face climbs to practice. Bring a pad.

I have bouldered here for years. I am sure no where near as long as A.H. A great deal of fun problems exist. I take the 5 year old here often. I added a few more photos.

If anyone is interested in helping me do a clean up here, I will dispose of the garbage we collect. I am thinking of getting it done in the next two weeks. 1 or 2 people would be a great help.
Thanks,
JB
