Penitente - Entrance Area
Mestdagh crankin' in Penitente Canyon.
In an attempt to divide the main Canyon into a couple distinct areas, this area covers the climbs on both the right and left side of the canyon until the side canyon branches to the right (at Captain America). Watch out for snakes.
From the main directions, follow the road into Penitente & park in the parking lot. One main trail enters the canyon - follow it. The first routes (including Mysterious Redhead) will be on the right after a long 30 second walk. Please stay off closed trails.

About 50 yards into the canyon, this route is just around the corner from the popular route "Whipping Post". Look for an astonishingly blank swath split by a thin crack...that is "Sitting In Limbo", "Cassandra" is just to the right. This route is a welcome change from many of the hard routes in the canyon, in that there are actually holds! Many of the hard routes in Penitente require straight down pulling on microscopic shadows, but this route has holds that don't go...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
