Dirt road winter closures Details
Eldorado National Forest closes dirt roads during wet conditions between November and May. The main office number 530-622-5061 might help you get current conditions, which aren't always updated on the website. fs.usda.gov/detail/eldorado… When the road is closed, simply park on a pullout of Wrights Lake Road and walk the extra mile.
DescriptionThis description is for the "direct" variation. I have not climbed the standard 2 pitch version but it looks good as well.
Start on Fear of Flying. Where Fear of Flying busts left, head straight up through the bulge via a steep lieback (crux). Continue through the right trending ramp then finish at the top of P2 Steppin' Stone.
Be ready for horrible rope drag if you're climbing in 1 pitch.
Rap down Steppin' Stone (2 single rope raps) or climb to the Summit (5.6R) and rap down the west side.
