Getting There 

Park in the paved pullout (it's a little loop-road) on the stream-side of the road ~0.2 mile upstream from mile marker 26; this pullout is downstream from the bathroom pullout.

Ford the river if the water's low. Currently there's a downed (but still alive) tree reaching across the water. Walk across this and head left (downstream) and around a bend. There's a nice big open area at the base of the lower tier routes.

Climb any of the Lower Tier routes, then scramble up just a little for the upper tier routes! Note that the LBB approach has one technical move.

Scoop Up a Little Sky 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  CO : Lyons : ... : Second Tier
Of the routes that we did on Pilot Knob, this was the best. There are two starts, an 8 (easier) or the 9+ (recommended). To do the 9+ start, head up under a roof to the right of Touch and Go and pull through it on the right side onto a face and past a very large wedged block. Protect this and continue up into a crack system slightly to the right, ending after some horizontals. Clip a single bolt and do the second crux (8+) on face moves to reach a bolted anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
