Start left of Minnesota Fats at a thin hand crack. Climb up the left of two cracks. Great jams and stemming moves will get you over a flake/bulge. Continue up the crack to a tree and rap...or top out and walk off to the west.

A really good route that should clean up after more ascents.


Gear up to a blue Camalot.

Gear up to #3.5 Camalot. The wall on the left side is still shedding and needs more of a scraping than a brushing. You can go left to the anchors for Golden Child to rap off. Jun 5, 2006
Not to be an ass, but the YDS is supposed to rate by the hardest move on a route. This route is 8-/8 on that scale. That said it, it is a one trick pony, although the start is also solid 7. I managed to use high feet and the left pocket to hit the horn with my right at the crux. My second claims you can extend your right hand to a jug near the proper of Denver Nugget to power through the crux. Fun moves though. Jul 22, 2011

First off, this area is sweet! Great views of Castle Rock. Thought it was pretty fun and solid 5.8 in my opinion. Lots of great stemming and a fun crux sequence. I brought a #4 and used it but not totally necessary. Went left to the anchors for Golden Child to rap. May 22, 2016
