Start on a low angled face to the left of Pitch 1 of Trezlar and follow knobs and pockets to cleaner rock above . An areteish (is that a word) crux comes just below the anchor on excellent rock.


Left most sport climb on the crag




Agree that a 60M rope is fine. It's quite easy to swing uphill a bit in order to reach ground. I'd also note that this route is slightly tricky to clean anchors on. There are only two rap hangers (as of 10/1/2017), no additional chains or rap rings. Obviously you should NOT lower through the rap hangers. So someone new to cleaning should know to expect to have to get your personal pro on the same two hangers that the toprope anchor is on, and also that the rope will have to go through. Again, 60M rope was fine for cleaning. Oct 2, 2017
did it yesterday. bolts and anchors loose or spinning. most nubbins split or broken. still, good heady smith fun. don't bring your 3 year-olds to this area:-) landings all eroded and slippery. Jun 8, 2017

I found this to be a really cool route. On par with the other Mesa Verde classics. I've only ever done this route with a 60m rope though you will definitely want to tie a knot in the end (but you do that already anyway, right?!). The climber will need to swing left into the slot in order to touch ground....or use a 70m rope.

This is a fun climb for those breaking into harder 5.10 face climbing. It starts out at about 5.8 and steadily gets harder and steeper. The pro is safe and the last two or three moves are the only 5.10b/c moves on the climb. May 26, 2010
