Description

From RockiesObscure.com (thanks Greg!)

There are 5 known routes on the two walls on the west side of Barrier Lake which are easily seen from Highway 40. The 5th route not mentioned here is the 5.10b four pitch sport route that starts 25m to the right of Friends called Blitzcrag Eh and info for it can be found elsewhere.

Maya’s Route is another obvious line and although this was done in 2003 the corner itself was done in the 80s or earlier and may be the same or slightly different line, either way we have info to Maya’s.

And the more southern east-facing unnamed wall has two different lines that conclude at the same finish which is a yellow very steep open book best spotted with binoculars. The Devonshire-Cornell line starts at a broken buttress and winds its’ way leftward and up, whereas the T.Jones line comes up somewhere straight up or possibly a bit left and up. Jones confirmed to me this was a line he and a partner had done many many years ago but did not fill me in on any further details- we had drinking to do! Go explore!
