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.
DescriptionStemming, finger cracks, stemming, laybacks, stemming, and jams. All thoughtful, mostly on gorgeous granite with golden glacial polish. Good stances below crux moves, which come more or less every roof, depending on your stylistic strengths.
ProtectionPro to 3.5", doubles of 0.5-2".
There is now a 2 bolt anchor with chains at the top of this route. I was able to rap easily with a 70 m rope, but not sure if a 60 m would make it.
Also, it looks like whoever put the chains up tried to grind down the welds on the links a bit, which left some very sharp burrs on the inside of the links. If you don't notice this and just haphazardly thread your rope through, you could easily shred your sheath. Be careful, or maybe bring a file.
