This is the far right route with fixed gear on the crag.Jam up the narrowing crack that angles to the right of the 1st bolt. Pull onto the face. Make a balancy mantle move to the second bolt.

Thanks for adding all of this info for me, Leo. I was going to do it when I added the Real Hidden Valley area but forgot about it over time. I have been busy working on a guide for NH climbing! Thanks again.
I hope to get back out there next season to enjoy the excellent climbing you have in CO!
