Description Suggest change

This route is on the left section of the rock. Climb up about 150 feet of easy rock to the base of the final headwall. The first pitch lets you choose from a variety of easy cracks, and slabs, mostly 5.4, and maybe a move or two of 5.7 depending on where you go. It is possible to traverse off left before you end the pitch. Watch out for some loose blocks on this pitch. The book gave this an R, but, I dont really think so as long as you are careful about loose stuff.

The second pitch headwall is very nice, but also, very short. There are about three cracks to choose from on this section, we took the rightmost hand crack. If this crack was three times as long, it would get three stars. But, the summit is nice, and you walk off straight back, and left, passing a very short 5.11a (boulder problem) on the back side of the crag. The view from the summit is spectacular with Pike's Peak in front of you. I'd recomend this as a warm up for the cracks on the right side of the crag....
