Southwest Face / Finger Face
Jon Cannon leading Finger Ramp.
This is an organizational entry to help with L->R sorting that would not otherwise work for this crag. These are routes that ascend above the Tourist Gully (a low angle ramp starting at the south end of North Gateway Rock) and are above the right end of the West Face.
These include routes from Seam Wall to Psychedelic Grandma / Bad But Harry.
Park at the North Main Parking Lot and walk around the south end of North Gateway Rock to get to the Tourist Gully ramp. Carefully ascend 3rd class terrain (which can get sandy) to access these routes. There are some large eyebolts along the ramp that facilitate belaying more safely.

Climb Tourist Gully from below the Finger alcove to the second eyebolt. Belay from the second eyebolt and examine the route - it starts with a 10' descent and traverse to the first two pitons, not directly up to the closer chain setup (that's Son of Tidricks, another good 5.8). The route generally arcs out right, up, and then back left in a crescent.Two cruxes exist, in between the second and third pitons (flakes no longer exist) and right at the third. The route is thin but the feet are much b...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
