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.
DescriptionShares the first few bolts of KE cracks and then traverses straight right across a small ledge to the corner/arete. When you reach the corner, head straight up the wide crack on the arete for 10-15 feet and then step back left onto the face and climb a beautiful and technical headwall (crux is a few bolts up the headwall.) Stellar climbing.
ProtectionBolts and a cam or two (I remember placing a #3 Camalot.) After you traverse right to the arete, you can plug cams (2-4 inches) in the wide crack until you can reach back left and clip the first bolt on the headwall. Then follow bolts to a two bolt anchor. You can set up a toprope by climbing Five Tendons and scrambling to the anchors.
