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.
DescriptionClimb a short, very thin crack to a short slab run-out. First set of anchors are around the right of the headwall in front of you. Second pitch consists of some vertical face climbing on bolts on the west side of the headwall to the top.
I didn't climb the second pitch, so I am unsure if the 10b rating comes from this section or not. Otherwise I would rate the crack section 9+. Those with bigger fingers might call it 10a.
LocationOn the far right end of the north side of Middle Spire. First pitch can be rapped off chain anchors which sit over what I believe is the start to Harding's Other Chimney. Not sure if there are separate anchors at the top of p2 as well, but if not, set a gear anchor and rap off of Candyland's anchors to the south.
