Per Bob Siegrist: as of 6/11/20, the parking areas are no longer blocked off. RMNP is open.
Per Matt B: this area is currently closed to all visitors due to temporary RMNP closures. The entire parking area is blocked off. Please do not threaten access to this area by climbing during this closure to all visitors.
Way left of center, closer to Castaway Crag than the Central Buttress is a clean section of gray wall, to its left a continuous right-facing dihedral system.
1. Begin with a prominent, dog leg dihedral. Continue it as it bends back right past a soft iron piton than a long horizontal 5.7R stretch to either the Direct Starts anchors or higher from a wire sling flake, 5.9.
2. Faceclimb up into the crux stemming corner, (small stopper or cams), undercling the roof (3 inch piece) and make a exciting move onto a big ledge, 5.9+.
3. Jam a wide flake off the ledge, pass 2 pitons and the final roof, 5.8. Belay at a small stance.
4. Nice 5.7 buckets for 100 ft. to the summit shoulder. Walk off.
