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.

Getting There 

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.

I may have the name wrong, but this is the right-side route on the Shangri-La Slab. Start behind a tree, making some .9+ moves up to a rightward traverse under a "wave" of rock. Plug a cam or two in the crack, haul up and over to the crux headwall. There is a move that felt .10c to me, but really only the one. Very nice climb overall. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
