DescriptionToga is a great intro to Pikes Peak Mixed action. During the FA, we had a great pitch of ice to start it. However, the first pitch can be mossy and chossy when iceless, but the last 3 are splitter AF.
P1 - 100 feet. This is WI3-4 or M3ish depending on conditions. Start at the base of the gully that leads to the prominent, right-facing corner system of The Ole 6. Belay at the big ledge beneath an offwidth flake.
P2 - 80 feet. Climb the offwidth flake, then bust right ten feet to a splitter up the face to a nice belay stance, 5.6. The money pitch!
P3 - 100 feet. Continue straight up through parallel pick size cracks to a ledge on a block. 5.6/m5-?? Prolly the crux.
P4 - 80 feet. Go straight up enjoyable, somewhat mossy climbing to a mossy topout. Belay straight back 20 feet at a wide corner.
Scramble up 100 feet or so, and cross right over the top of TA to get back to the car.
