Ultrasuarus is a new 35m climb on the North Face of Dinosaur Rock that ascends the spectacular right-leaning line to the summit of the formation. Staging area is at the base of the lower ramp, right by the trail.
Begin by climbing up the ramp and clipping the first two bolts of Milk Bone. Then cut right and climb into the corner for 30 feet, through the roof (crux 1), and then up and up and up through pumpy terrain to the shelf. After the rest, pull through the final overhanging headwall (crux 2) and hang on to the anchors. For full value, climb past the anchors to the summit and take in the view. One of the best endurance climbs in the Flatirons!
Watch for loose rock to the left of the bolt line in the first 30 feet. We cleaned as much as we could, but there is likely some choss remaining.
A huge thanks to the Flatirons Climbing Council (FCC) and Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) for allowing yet another great route in the Flatirons.
