This is essentially the middle of the Second Band. There are two bolted routes and potential for some grovelly trad undertakings if you're bored.
Park at the east end of a large dirt pullout just west of the Big Narrows. Walk back east and head up a loose water runoff on the north side of the road. Hike a minute or two until you hit an old fence, follow that east, then contour along the hill until you find the rocks. This area is a bit disjointed, and it may take a couple trips to understand the layout easily. You could also head up from Vrain Child, and this is mentioned in The Platitudes description.

Good luck. A "slippery" unprotected 5.11 crescent can be TR'd to the left of the start. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
