Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures/CDOT Road Work Details

Description

Aries starts between Mounty and Cheap Labor at the Lower Capitalist area. Start from the ledge, opening with a devious, right leaning rail past the first 2 bolts to a bulge. A few thin moves past the 4th bolt (5.10) gets you exciting climbing just right of the Mounty flake.

Beeline to the shallow, stemming dihedral underneath the anchors.

Protection

10 protection bolts. Bring a few long draws for 6th and 7th clip. 2 bolt rap anchor.

Caution

Addendum: if you happen to belay from the threaded hole below Cheap Labor, you may find your 60m rope slipping through your belay device just before you belay your partner to the ledge...40 feet above the river!

UPDATE

June 2005. This is no longer mixed route. It is fully bolted, 10 bolts.

July 9, 2009. The first two bolts have been moved a few feet to the left, making the grade more consistent with the rest of the route. Goes up the sloping rail.

Aug. 16, 2010. A belay bolt added.
