Description 

A very enjoyable route. The rock is fantastic by Rockies standards and the protection is great. All pitches can be combined, depending on your comfort for rope drag.

Pitch 1: 25m 5.4 (3 bolts): Climb straight up through a few treed ledges

Pitch 2: 20m 5.4 (2 bolts): Climb slabs to the right of a right facing corner and then up and right to anchors.

Pitch 3: 25m 5.6 (5 bolts): Climb over small roof and then trend right to climb runnels.

Pitch 4: 15m 5.7 (3 bolts):

Pitch 5: 30m 5.8 (8 bolts): Climb up and left to first bolt and then straight up.

Pitch 6: 30m 5.6 (4 bolts): Up and left on gear to the first bolt and then up and trending right on bolts and gear.

Pitch 7: 20m 5.3 (No bolts): Up and right, staying away from loose gully. Finish just below large ledge.

Pitch 8: 35m 5.6 (4 bolts): Scramble up through some trees and then up the right side of a block. From here look for bolts on the wall above, climb straight up to a ledge.

Pitch 9: 5.10c (9 bolts): Climb straight up from the belay on bolts. The crux comes at a small overlap, when the going gets tough, look left. Once through the crux, trend up and right.

Pitch 10: 20m 5.8 (5 bolts): Up and right around overlap and then back left.

Location 

Once near the base of the cliff, traverse left approx. 200m until you reach a scrappy left facing corner, I believe there was a cairn here. Scramble up the corner and slightly right to a tree that should have some cord on it for a short rappel on the descent. From the tree walk up hill until you reach the cliff and then traverse left about 5m to the base of the route and another cairn.

Protection 

Mostly bolt protected, some pitches might require gear. A small rack from .5-3" is adequate. Bring runners if combining pitches. Single 60m rope will work for rappels. All anchors have ring bolts.
