Jumped on this to kill some time driving down to Lake City and thought it was a fun little route. Climbs a bit dirty in spots but still enjoyable. Overall, 5.Easy, but with a little effort, I think we tipped it into the 5.5/5.6 realm (climb left side/face of the gully/corner). You can single pitch this with a 70m. We never went for the south rap chains (ended up rapping the route on a fixed 60m that was already there), but the walkoff looks super straightforward down the hill to climber's right. Not sure what the fixed line's story is, but rope was in great shape, and the anchor was solid enough (though a bit sun kissed). Left it all there in case someone was using it for (???). Aug 21, 2017
