Take-a-Penny Traverse

V6+, Boulder, 6 ft,  Avg: 3 from 2 votes
FA: Damien Ternes
Colorado > S Platte > Rampart Range Rd > Rampart Range B… > Rdside Attractions


Start on the left side of the boulder matched on a rail. Traverse out the lip of the boulder on slopers until you are in the middle of the lip, then make an incredibly hard mantel on nothing but a heel and friction. Good luck!

I am no judge of grade, but this was hard.

I would park at the marked spots at the intersection, and walk up the road. It would take about 3 minutes.


This is next to the road on the left just after the DH campground/Rampart Rd. 3 way. *giggity. It is on a right turn corner.


A pad and a spot.

[Hide Comment] Obviously, as with all ratings, the 4 stars is my opinion, as this is one of my favorite climbs and hardest sends. Jul 27, 2016
