Description

There's an obvious, hershey kiss-shaped formation above the road as it winds up towards the tunnel from the east entrance. I'm not sure of the real name to this, if you know, please let me know, and I'll make the change.

The climb starts off with very simple OW climbing. When the crack starts to decay and becomes steeper, there's one of those moves that'll cause you to stop, stress a little, until you finally go for it and realize it wasn't too bad. That's pretty much all there's to this one, but it leads to a beautiful summit.

The crux is heads up though, not something you'd want to fall from. It is pretty much a sandy slab type move.

Location

The easiest way to approach this is from the road that heads towards Glade Park from the Monument. Use Google maps to find the best drainage to follow, there's also an old trail that you can pick up once you near the formation. The climb itself is approached through a little notch until you see the obvious weakness up the formation on the side facing the road.

Protection

You can go pretty light on this one. A single rack would be more than enough. The bottom section could use a wide came, but it's pretty easy climbing.
