Access Issue: RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Description [Edit]

Colonel Nelson A. Miles went looking for Crazy Horse after G.A. Custer’s demise and engaged Crazy Horse at the Battle of Wolf Mountain.

P1: Climb the left leaning crack to a spacious ledge.
P2: Take the ramp above the belay to the right; squeeze to the top of the pillar; step back across to the main face and ramp back up left; marvel at the various rappel follies from previous eras. At the end of the ramp, head up the corner/crack. At a spacious platform, traverse hard left and step across to the Gigglenut Rampage launching pad.
P3: Up the crack/corner above the step-across; from ledges, up the middle crack (left of & facing the obvious chimney on the right).
P4: Continue up the crack to join Geronimo/Crazy Horse at mid-height.

Location [Edit]

The climb starts at the base of a left leaning finger/hand crack system a hundred feet up the hillside from the buttress toe left of the Geronimo start and a few dozens of feet down from the room sized block on the hillside.
