Description

Jason Kaplan wrote the first description for this cliff on Mountain Project:  "This is a pristine alpine setting just down a ways off the side of the road!"
Lincoln Lake Slabs, Colorado.
Flower covered approach and belay ledge for Columbine Crack.
   Please tread carefully.

Getting There

Per Jason Kaplan: drive up CO Hwy 103 to Mt. Evans and go up Evans. There is a long lake on the left (Lincolin Lake) before you get to Summit Lake with some obvious rock features about 1000 feet above (right next to the road). There are a couple small pulloffs on the dropoff side of the road at and after the corner just as you pass over the top of the last cliff.
