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 right side of the South face.
This is the right of a pair of more bolted, slab routes. Moderate climbing using edges up past 5 bolts which were 5/16" and were upgraded using ASCA gear in 2014. This is pleasant and barely reasonable for a 5.6 leader. It is aesthetic.
