Description [Suggest Change]

This is one of the lowest in altitude of the The Crags. This lies on low on the left/middle of the Crags. This crag contains perhaps even more obscure routes from 1-3 pitches. A more photographed route, Point of Honor, 5.5, lies on this crag. Again, alpine in feel but subalpine in altitude and approach. This is likely the first rock you will see on the southerly approach to the Crags. It can be identified by a large slot on its W face.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

From Estes, drive south on CO Hwy 7 to the Lily Lake visitor center. Drive uphill and past this V.C. to the west and then quickly turn north on the road to the Baldpate Inn. Drive past the Inn, park at the end of the road. Best to have a guidebook with pictures (Kimball's, Rossiter's, or Gillett's). Hike up this same blocked off road perhaps a 1/4 to 1/2 mile. Head uphill through lightly forested slopes. When the trees clear, the challenge of figuring which rock is which comes next. The lowest of the crags are Rib Rock on the left (N) and Slot Rock on the right (S). Plan on 45-75 min to approach depending on your urgency.
