Description Suggest change

This climb ascends a left-facing crack system to a right-facing dihedral on the skyline when viewed from the base. The cracks at the bottom will improve if more traffic cleans up some of the grunge.
The upper dihedral, however, is whistle clean. Getting established in it is the crux. Some fun mixed trad/bolted climbing follows to a two-bolt chain anchor. You can rap from there on a single rope to a ledge with easy down-climb options.

Location Suggest change

The route is on the southwest face near where the approach described in Gillett's St. Vrain guidebook brings you to the crag. It begins in a left-facing, slightly grungy crack system just to the right of a face under large roofs.

Protection Suggest change

Small wires to cams of 3".
