We climbed the 5.6 chimney as shown, then we rappelled down and found enjoyable, solid 5.8 moves on the face to the right. There are good nut placements.


I had originally posted this climb in the Gilpin area, but after reviewing records, I believe it is on the crest of 11,777. If anyone has seen this formation, let us know.

We descended climber's left.


Using homemade nuts, a few biners, and runners, we belayed off of natural flakes and chockstones.
