Description 

The route goes clockwise to almost a full 360 degrees to the summit. It's a fun way to summit. Rope drag can be an issue. so keep the rope loose. The rock is of poor quality, but it is a fun adventure off of I-70.

Location 

Start on east side, wrap clockwise.

Protection 

Small rack of cams up to 2" and webbing for anchors. Plan on replacing it as it is more of a lasso.

This was one our first adventure trad climbs and believed to be the FA due to the clean nature of the summit. Good times.
