Description

The Dinosaur's Foot is an elongate formation with several bolted lines on it that take off on the "toes" of the foot. The lower toe routes provide moderate and well protected climbing on alpine granite (largely good stone, 5.7 to 5.10). The last toe has two short bolted lines that make hump up well worth the effort. A 60 meter rope will get you off everything, but it is also possible to scramble off right.

Getting There

Hike to the right around Lily Lake. Just before the bench head up hill via a climbers trail that doesn't look like much immediately. The trail takes you up along a corridor between the main climbing formations. The Dinosaur's Foot is on the left and near the upper end of the corridor.

Claude informed me he "put in a 5.9+ to the right of Middle Toe called Copradelite (a play on copralite, which is fossilized dino dung)." Thanks, Claude! Aug 16, 2010
