Per Bob Siegrist: as of 6/11/20, the parking areas are no longer blocked off. RMNP is open.
Per Matt B: this area is currently closed to all visitors due to temporary RMNP closures. The entire parking area is blocked off. Please do not threaten access to this area by climbing during this closure to all visitors.
Climb easy rock to gain the first bolt. The recommended start climbs the short, shallow, clean, left-facing dihedral (gear) for 20 feet to it's end before moving right onto the initial slab to gain the first bolt. The rock steepens after the second bolt as you move up to a short vertical face covered with green lichen. Crux moves are encountered near the fourth bolt. Continue to the top on easy to moderate stone.
Gear can be placed before the 1st bolt, between the 2nd and 3rd bolts, and after the 4th bolt to gain the bolted anchor.
Two descent options exist:
Rappel the route with TWO 60 meter ropes,
Belay from the bolted anchor, then traverse left to the backside of the formation and walk down the talus slope on the north side, down to the base of the route.
