Description 

Easter Island has a distinct summit that looks like those carved stone monolithic faces (refer to the photo). It sits directly SE of Innuendo Spire. It is 60m tall on the right edge and slightly shorter and lower-angle on the left. It faces North-northwest. In early September, it gets 2 or 3 hours of afternoon sun.

Getting There 

Park at the small pullout near mile marker 8 a couple of curves before Summit Lake. Walk back NE about 0.2 miles to the saddle between Mt. Warren and Rogers Peak, and carefully pick your way up the slope. Alpine Lite is a 20 minute walk directly over the saddle. Once over the saddle, walk west downhill until you see cairns. There are several gullies to scramble down - the one furthest right was a little too loose. Traverse to the skier's left.

Bring your ODub gear. This route tackles the wideness on the left edge of the crag. The crux happens near the middle at a 'Y' shaped junction. Thrutch your way up to a slight rest where you can catch your breath below the intimidating roof, which is slightly easier than what you just did.Style note: Scott led this ground up in very cold weather. My hands froze, and I had to hang following it....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
