Description

This is on Tanner Dome. It is a straightforward, single-pitch 5.6 or 5.7 climb that angles slightly to the right as you go up. It climbs past the left side of the small overhang (while Amp Left climbs past the right side). It's about 90 feet to the anchors.

Descent: rappel from the anchors.

Location

On Tanner Dome, it's the third route on top of the boulders, just before you get to the trees (#3 in the Tanner Dome moderates pic).

I highly recommend Stewart Green's "Rock Climbing Colorado, 2nd edition" guidebook for a great description of the routes in the Tanner Dome area and throughout Colorado!!!

Protection

It is a sport climb -- with about 10 bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

Really nice route on great rock. The bolt hangers are painted black - to help identify the route. It has nine bolts.

56 degrees and sunny on Feb. 20th! We were camped at Banks Campground at Shelf Road which had climbers on almost every route - we were the only people climbing here! Feb 21, 2016

Fun warm-up for this area. Climbing is all pretty easy, but if you try and follow the bolt line proper, it will feel much harder than 5.7. Second the comments above, we were also the only people at the dome all day. Beautiful area. Sep 26, 2016
