This is a fun 75 foot dihedral to the L of You're Ugly and Gonzo. The pro is all there, the anchors are bomber -- trees. It's a fast one pitch moderate climb that's ideal for beginning leaders. And, it stays in the shade a long time.


stoppers and cams, mid range


Better than it looks from below, quite enjoyable. Oct 22, 2001

For you beginning leaders, either don't fall or place closely spaced protection above the broken off stump (clearly pictured) to prevent horrendous impaling. Perhaps a saw.... Apr 25, 2003

This is an OK route, much easier than P2 of Gonzo. I don't think this gets climbed often. In the dihedral crack, there's a bit of vegetation and dirt. Makes the feet "interesting" when there's not much on the face. Lots of loose rock at the top. Be careful when belaying from above. Sep 20, 2004

Maybe it was just because I hadn't warmed up, but I got pretty pumped on this. As with all routes in this area, there is a ton of loose rock piled up on top. The stump should be either removed or sharpened to a fine point for beginning leader kabobs. May 7, 2006

This is a fun climb. I would recommend this climb to any leader. But I agree about the stump. If you fall - Owwww! Aug 3, 2007

Great climb! Someone has 'adjusted' the stump recently. There is no longer potential for getting goosed/impaled. Very fun route! May 26, 2008

No one mentioned the nice laybacking starting half way. Fun route! Lots of loose rocks at belay ledge, watch out! I knocked a few down. Jul 30, 2008
Julie Clements and I climbed this route in '71 or '72. I don't know if we were the first, but there were no signs (pin scars) of anyone else climbing it before. We protected it entirely with chocks, and a previous party might have too. Sep 9, 2011

The infamous tree stump has been removed. Note--the very loose walk-off ledge traverses just above this pitch, so expect some rockfall on a busy day. Apr 23, 2012

This climb is much better than it looks, and I thought it was a lot of fun. If you want more of a challenge, climb the finger crack on the right side before stemming into the corner. Only downside is that it is a little grassy. Aug 30, 2015

There really aren't too many quality one pitch climbs of this grade in Eldorado. I thought this was quite fun and has a lot of interesting stemming between the cracks on the right and the corner. It is worth nothing that the detatched block (that a beginning leader might be tempted to place gear in) on the right immediately following the stump, moves a bit and will not take reliable protection despite its appearance. As soon as you pass this block, there is a solid single crack that will take a good finger-sized piece. Nov 2, 2015
