Description

This route's only redeeming quality is that if you climb it, you can add another tower to your list. Otherwise, it is pretty much a waste of your time, unless you like short approaches and want something to do as you are driving by on I-70. Topping out will wake you up, if you choose to do so.

This route climbs the left tower as you are looking south from the interstate. It follows a line that allows you to be seen by all passing traffic.

Start by climbing up a dirty, ramp/chimney (5.4ish or less). Then follow approximately 8 bolts (4 or 5 hangerless) to the top. The top is pretty much just loose dirt w/some grass.

From the top, downclimb the route via the last two bolts to a two bolt anchor in good rock. (This is why you will notice the rappel slings 15 feet below the top. The capstone is pretty junky.)

Protection

Wire nuts, or the like, to sling the hangerless bolts.

Erosion hasn't been the kindest to the bolts on this one. Some are still fine..others are sticking out quite a ways. The tower to the west of this one has more recently been climbed. 'Lucif[u]r' was carved into the base of the tower of this undocumented one. It's just a bolt ladder that you can easy get by on by just yanking on a draw here and there. The bolts on this other one all have hangers and the erosion hasn't gotten to them yet. Mar 13, 2018
