Description Suggest change

Do any combination of routes, starting with Helen's Dome, then Acid Rock, and finally the Velcro Wall to the summit of Sheep Rock.

Lynn Fletcher and Dan McGee on the first Tour de Platte linkup, 1984.

The first time up all three domes the team was motivated by the news of great pitches up on Dunblazer and Kat's then-new Velcro Wall.

Darren Mabe's photo-map has a few details added in red, black, white, and violet for Tour de Platte.

Starting the tour with Spree (5.8), connecting to Four Eyes (5.9-), and finishing via Acid Crack (5.5) is a recommendable six pitch moderate.

A single set of Black Diamond Steel nuts and Stoppers, a single set of small cams too, and maybe a #2 Camalot just in case.
