Description

This is a reorganizational entry (thanks to Micah) to help facilitate the L->R sorting, because it "really doesn't make sense when you are going pretty much around an entire rock." This subarea will include routes from the West Face.

This face has great views of Pike's Peak.

Andrew, thanks! So, on the other side of the South face (SE corner), there is another stray? bolt maybe 40' up on a blunt arete line that sort of resembles this, but we didn't see other bolts. What is that? Nov 2, 2011

 
I think it's Family Values. Nov 2, 2011
