During the closure, motorists need to take US 36 to CO 7.
Climb up the moderate corner to a ledge, protecting with whatever gear you feel like tossing in. This is not the crux of the climb.
Continue up to clip 2 bolts easily, then start into thinner territory. Step up into harder climbing and clip the 3rd bolt, then the difficulty starts in earnest. Clip the 4th bolt and go left (cleaner) or right (easier) through the crux and up to the top of the arete. No way is secure, but both are safe. Height and face climbing skills both matter here. Wear edging shoes as well!
