Description

The biggest challenge may be finding this rock. From Denver, go West on US Hwy 285, go South (left) on Foxton Rd, this Ts at the South Platte River, head East (left) to South Platte, then it curves South, go 3 miles. There is a prominent, large boulder across the South Platte River just North of the parking area. Park where legal.

2 drainages can be hiked up. The North one has Atlantis slab a short way up. Choose the South drainage. Hike 20 minutes or so. Find the South face. Scramble up and around some boulders to find this route on the left side of the South face.

This slab smears, clip the first bolt, find a first crux 5.9 move, clip the 2nd bolt, find a 2nd crux 5.9 move, clip the 3rd bolt. From here you can move left up a few bolts to finish on Beach Blanket Bingo or continue up more moderate but much more runout slab to a 2 bolt anchor. Some of these hangers are Leepers.

Update: given the condition of the bolts, this should be considered a toprope problem!

Rap 120 feet.

Protection

QDs 4-6 (now 4) depending on your finish. Addendum: the bolts were in questionable state. The 2nd and 4th were replaced! Thank you! Some of these had snapped with minimal force!
