Description 

The Lair is the cave-like feature East of Ra and low on the hill-side. It is just across the tailings field, but it is distinct from the large buttress to the right. A long dead tree presently spans the opening to the cave itself. Four routes are presently on the crag. Bolts on two are visible from the trail. The right-most of these routes provides access to the adjacent buttress and the crags above.

Getting There 

Approach as for Ra and The Halidome. Cross the tailings field at its intersection with the trail. A rough short trail leads to the crag.

Thriller moves out of the cave on progressively steepening rock. A hard starting sequence deposits the climber below the first roof system where a high clip protects moving past the overlap. The target here is a large scary looking tooth looming 15 feet above. Despite my best efforts with a crowbar I was unable to even budge the tooth, so while it looks ominous it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Mark and I have both climbed through using it, and it has been very solid. Move left after the too...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
