Description Suggest change

This is an older route described in B. Gillett's "Rocky Mountain National Park" guidebook (2001). The physical crux is surmounting the initial overhanging, quartz ledges, but the mental one is a bit higher with at least 1 significant run-out, on 5.8 or .9 face climbing. This would be a nasty fall, hence the "R" rating.

Location Suggest change

The route is located about 20' left of "Maternal Damnation", at a significant section of creamy-pink quartz. A 60-meter rope will easily get you down.

Protection Suggest change

The route has 8 protection bolts, and a 2-bolt anchor.
