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.
DescriptionStrenuous and technical, but very good climbing. Climb side-pull flakes and crimps straight up to the first bolt. Many will want either a secure spot or a stick clip for the first bolt because the landing is on slanting talus with potential to roll and fall another 50-60 feet down a chimney to the base of the south face. I usually put a single locker on the first bolt because there is solid climbing to the second bolt where a fall to the deck would be close. Continue climbing past more bolts to a two bolt anchor.
This route gets great shade in the afternoon.
LocationEast facing in the gully immediately around the corner to the climbers left of Five Tendons.
