Dirt road winter closures Details
Eldorado National Forest closes dirt roads during wet conditions between November and May. The main office number 530-622-5061 might help you get current conditions, which aren't always updated on the website. fs.usda.gov/detail/eldorado… When the road is closed, simply park on a pullout of Wrights Lake Road and walk the extra mile.
DescriptionStellar mixed bolt and gear route. Step off the ground and climb up and right through the undercling crux (protected by one bolt). Pull out onto the arete and climb a thin tips crack (5.9) to a bolted anchor. You can toprope this climb, but you may need to extend the anchor a bit to do it with a 60m rope.
LocationStarts at the toe of the wall where the east facing slab intersects with the south facing vertical wall.
ProtectionBring thin nuts and cams (all the way down to BD 0.1 equiv.) The crux 11c section is protected by a good bolt and you can place a big nut above your head before committing to pulling onto the arete. You need small gear for the beginning of the crack, but the gear gets bigger the higher you go. Gear to 3 inches.
