Access Issue: Rim Rock Trail Closure Details

Description

This route is called "Sloping Forehead" in Stewart Green's "Rock Climbing Colorado."

It begins just right of the top of the approach trail; two lines right of "This Ain't Naturita, Pilgrim", and one line right of "The Fabulous Flying Carr's Route".

Start on the left side of an arete, traverse right after the third bolt, and top out at an anchor shared with "Pack 'o Bobs".

A good beginner lead and an easy warm up.

Protection

4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Winch Hooks were added to the chains 12/15/07 (date for measuring useful lifespan).

Usually I do away with chain when hooks go on, but I left these in because taking off the old hangers will weaken some 3/8" bolts. Dec 21, 2007
Was out there today, 9/6/11, and a few of the bolts are getting kind of loose. We placed gear near the first and second bolts to make sure we stayed safe. Be careful out there, everyone! Sep 6, 2011
