This is a beautiful dihedral to good-ole South Platte slab climbing. You have your choice of evils for the start--awkward offwith or an awkward flared handcrack.

Rap from a decent rap station after pitch 1, or wander on for 1 more pitch of slab climbing to rap from Fool's Gold.

Approach as for all other Helen's Dome SW face routes, Face Value is the first decent looking right-facing dihedral just to the right of Fool's Gold.


Miscellaneous gear to 3". Typical runout S. Platte slab with old bolts on pitch 2. 2 bolt rap station with slings and rap ring after 1st pitch.
