Pull down not out - how can you not climb a route named Pikes Peak when you are here, right? Rocks here can be brittle when anything other than dry (& even then, too). The route moves left after a solid start with a nice finish up to the anchor.
Walk up hill a bit from the parking area and pass the old Bach residence by the on the right and his old garage on the left. Next up on the left is what one might call the mini ripple wall, no routes on this little gem. Past the mini ripple, still on the left is the first wall with routes, Westbay Wall. The next wall after Westbay with routes is the Sayers Wall.
History of the Name

This is a route that is toproped from The Mad Scientist's anchors. Instead of following the bolts for TMS, go straight at the anchors directly from below them. Start in the gully that is easy climbing. Face the more vertical wall with the right-facing ledge above, and this requires a bit of smearing. The crux is the same as TMS but is left of the bolts and can be more challenging if you stay away from the flake to the left. Then, it's easy sailing to the TR...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
