Description 

The large crag uphill and East of Stone Slab. Four bolted lines in: a hard project on the left is followed by two 5.11 routes in the middle and an 11- on the right. Sharp starts on some give way to bulletproof granite above.


Getting There 

Approach from a separate trail 50 ft down hill from the approach to Stone Slab.

Stone Point/Slab/Rock lie 7.5 miles East of the Mall Road (in Estes Park) intersection, and exactly half way between the Jug Dome parking and Mary's Bust. There is a pullout on the North side of the road, right below the crags. Additional parking can be found 100 yards uphill or downhill from here.

So has Route D been done yet? And, is "Fly Boy" different from "Palin Maneuver"?

Sorry, I switched FB name. The furthest left route (D) has been worked, but I am still having trouble pulling through the crimp above the roof. It has three cruxes with the lower roof being the most difficult, so it's hard to string it all together even if you pull the roof completely free. I'm hoping to acquire the crimp/campus strength this winter and see if I can put it away in the spring. The route may or may not be 5.13 overall but the roof crimp requires 5.13 crimping with a very high heel hook - unless you figure out something easier !!!

So route E is 5.11a, past the horizontal/blocky area to the chains? There is a quick-link bail-off in this section, and my partner said the climbing beyond it was loose, lichen-y, and HARD. Sandbag, project, devious, or what gives? Liked the other 2!

That'd be me. I could have just totally screwed up the sequence or missed some massive jug? Lichen everywhere, holds covered in scum and a few nice (but small) foot jibs breaking off everywhere. I worked moves that went over the bulge via a left handjam and a right crimp, with a left highstep. Went immediately back right back to the seam, and directly up it. Are you supposed to veer our way left? Hard!
