Description 

The Second Band has three sets of crags, Shangri-La Slab, Tomahawk Buttress and The Platitudes. It is located on the north side of South St. Vrain Canyon as part of the Country-Western group of crags.


Getting There 

There are several different ways to approach this area. One possible approach is to head west and slightly uphill from Vrain Child (see that area for the description on how to get there). It is a 5-minute walk.
