Description

The main crag offering several leading options is The Alpenglow Wall. It is the primary wall you encounter after crossing the talus field and humping up the last steep section of the hill. The crag sweeps to the left with South to Westward exposure and is host to the best and longest sport climbs on the hill. Most routes run between 50 and 75 feet in length, are bolt protected, and come with lowering stations. The difficulty begins at 5.10 and runs to mid-5.12. As indicated in the comments to the Keystone area, the Chockstone Arete is an interesting contender for best route on the hill at 5.11a.
