Old topo - old bolts, too!
The routes were bolted by Dave Dunblazer and his partner, Kat. They were productive members of a cadre of urban Denver climbers, who all met via Bill Forrest's climbing shop and put up a ton of routes during the summer of 1983 and 84.
None of us had much money for bolts but Bill would let his shop employees order the best drills and bolts from Ed Leeper. Of course, now those bolts are funky! This would be an excellent place for some better hardware, and more of it, because rock is very good.

Do any combination of routes, starting with Helen's Dome, then Acid Rock, and finally the Velcro Wall to the summit of Sheep Rock. Lynn Fletcher and Dan McGee on the first Tour de Platte linkup, 1984. The first time up all three domes the team was motivated by the news of great pitches up on Dunblazer and Kat's then-new Velcro Wall. Darren Mabe's photo-map has a few details added in red, black, white, and violet for Tour de Platte. Starting the tour with Spree (5.8), connecting to Four Eyes (5.9-), and finishing via Acid Crack (5.5) is a recommendable six pitch moderate. On the way to Acid Rock from the top of Helen's.
