Description 

This is a the second largest crag of these small crags. It is just right/east of Chair Rock. It has a half dozen routes or so. From a distance, it has a sort of slender, spire-like appearance. Up close, it is a bit less impressive.

Rap 120' off bolts to the SW.

Eds. Note, from Allen Hill, there is a good crack route on this rock that someone who has done it should enter into the database.

Getting There 

From the fence line, hike 0.5 mi north, drop down to the rocks. Bear right to the right-most formation, just right of The Chair.

Living Hell 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  CO : South Platte : ... : The Knight
The first pitch climbs the obvious wide crack system on the left side of the south face at 5.10d. Please add info if you have climbed this; I have not.The second pitch is rated 5.9+ and follows the ever-widening crack that splits the Knight's upper south face. Climb the quality crack in the left-facing dihedral as it grows from fingers to hands to #6. The crux, at least for me, is a steep stretch of #4....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
