Description

This is an excellent and unknown route. Hike the Fern Lake trail for 1 and 1/2 miles to a bridge. Scramble up the hillside to the right; the Colossus is a dome with its east side seemingly shorn off, left of a prominent, orange prow. The walk is long enough to induce one to do other routes in the area as well.

P1-just up from the SE corner of the Dome, find a clean, 100 foot long vertical hand crack--classic 5.8. Belay on the ridge.

P2-climb steep and blocky but flawless rock above the belay (5.8 R), and continue more easily up nice cracks to the top.

Descend to the west.
