Climb up the first 10 feet to the bird shit ledge. Then start the finger and thin hands crack. Watch out for a loose flake. Then the crack opens to perfect hands for a while then hits a lower angle part with a lot more bird shit everywhere.


This is at the entrance of cave in the shaded area.


#0.5-#4 Cams. 2 bolt anchor at the top.

This is a really fun route, a great place to practice cracks and liebacks, plus you can climb here when it's pouring rain. Don't pull the anchors. Jun 15, 2013

Oops, big mistake here. Seems like this one was done long ago by a hard man named Chuck Grossman as they noted two routes in the cave. Sorry Chuck. I will try to get down there and remove these bolts next time I am in CO and patch the holes with sandy epoxy. This might be a while so anyone else who feels like it can do the same as long as they don't make a mess out of it. These guys frowned upon unnecessary anchors being installed and chose to leave no trace by going all the way to the top. This is admirable. Intermediate anchors are common in the desert now because people just like cragging at these areas, and most of the good climbing is on the first pitches and also because of the sometimes dangerous conditions (for persons climbing and to those below) near the top of the cliffs. Still, should have been more careful. Don't let this happen to you, get the 1988 guide from someone before doing any "pioneering." Yay for mountain project! I wish it was around earlier. Oct 8, 2011
Still a great route with a sweet setting. Also, the poop was pretty much all gone. Still pretty dirty up top though. Oct 29, 2010
I agree that Keyhole was way harder. I barely got pumped on this thing, and Keyhole pretty well kicked my butt. Oct 28, 2010

A good quality route, in a really unique setting, with much of the climbing being in the 5.9+ range. In other words: not nearly as difficult as the Key Hole route. May 8, 2009
