Description Suggest change

Follow the trail to the highest point and turn around (right) to see the obvious sharp arete looking back towards the diamond, a beautiful line.

Perhaps one of the most scenic climbs in the Estes Park area, without being on a wall somewhere. This route is photographed and is on the front cover of the Gillett guide book for the [Estes Park] valley areas. A spectacular line.... It is now a bolt lead only protected by 4 bolts and a pin. You can toprope this route by scrambling to the top of the wall up and left from the base of the route.

Protection Suggest change

There are 5 anchor bolts on top for toproping and 4 bolts and a pin on the route.

Per Dom R: there are now (July 2018) steel biners at the top which can be used for lowering, rapping, or toproping.
