Description

This is the first bolted line down the hill, left, from the small spray painted alcove (dates back to '79).

Pitch 1 - 5.10d. Start up the edge of the arete on easy terrain to a large granite stalagmite. Don't take the right bolted line (Recovery Wall #14). Stay on the left line, and climb the face of the stalagmite. Delicate, enjoyable climbing up patinas lead to the anchor. Three stars for the first pitch, 95 feet.

Pitch 2 - 5.10a. I personally don't recommend this pitch. Climb 15-20 feet from the anchor to the uncharacteristically high first bolt. A few more bolts leads to a small roof with questionable rock (sounded very hollow after the second bolt over the roof). Once past the roof, continue up chickenheads to the anchor, 95-100 feet.

Make 2 rappels to the ground. If you're using a 60m, tie knots in the end for the first rappel; there didn't seem to be much rope left with a 70m.

I have found the upper pitch well worth doing, not quite as good as P1, but the small bit of South Platte Kitty litter is easily passed with big positive holds. Nov 26, 2016
