DescriptionOnce a variety of routes were listed under Monitor Rock. To help with organization, we'll break these up into separate sections of the wall.
As is probably obvious from the name, this is the section of Monitor Rock that is first encountered as you hike up from CO Hwy 82. There are a terrific bunch of routes located quite conveniently for the climber. Probably best known in the area are The Mother Load and Trooper Traverse which may date back to WWII days. Fine additions have filled in the area.
Routes here include (L->R) off the ground:
A. Matchless, 12-, 2p.
B. Meltdown, 11, 5p, 450', bolts.
C. Rad Lad, 11, 1p, 115', bolts.
