Description

This is yet another set of beautiful, rounded, granite domes in the South Platte. These domes have 1-2 pitch slab routes with mostly spartan, bolt protection. This area lies just East of the road towards Deckers, alongside a popular kayaking area. This is a gorgeous area to soak up southern rays during the fall. It can be too toasty on the South faces in the summer. Note the parking signage (it is different than in the guidebook).

There can be unpleasant, poison ivy here.

Getting There

From Denver, go West on US Hwy 285, go South (left) on Foxton Rd just past Conifer, this Ts at the South Platte River, head East (left) to South Platte (96) towards Deckers, then it curves South, go 3 miles. There is a prominent, large boulder across the South Platte River just North of the parking area. Park where legal. You may have to walk along the road a bit to the trailheads. 2 drainages can be hiked up. The North one has Atlantis Slab a short way up. Approach takes ~10 minutes.
