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 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 appear to be 5/16". Pleasant and barely reasonable for a 5.6 leader. Aesthetic.

Rap 130 feet.

Two books called this the Webster-Ellis Route.

A 70m rope will just reach from the anchors. Apr 12, 2014

I think the best way to get to this rock is to follow the trail up past Atlantis. Stay right of the boulder field and find a trail on the hill to the right. Follow the trail over to the dome. The next drainage has tons of poison ivy with no trail. Sep 10, 2008
