The right most of three short crags on the south facing hill side. Could be a good place in the winter since it is in full sun. Ivy Right is a 60 foot whale back slab 40 feet right of Ivy Center. It has a horizontal crack on the left side and an arching crack on the right, both about 15 feet up from the ground. There is also a vertical crack on the right that begins 20 feet up or so. It could be done as a route.
About 5.5 miles west of the Beige Siphon Tube in the narrows at the paved parking area across from Idlewild Dam. Same parking as for Becker, Nancy's Rock. Take the steep dirt trail from the west end of the parking lot and head for a pine tree on the left, then to a telephone pole back right, then to a short rock face up and right, then to another pine tree on the right. Ivy League should be 100 feet uphill in front of you. This path is not direct, it does avoid the massive posion ivy on the hill.

Take the bolt line up the right side of Ivy Right. A tricky 5.9-10a start past one bolt gets you atop the arching crack stance and the fun begins from here. Stay out of the crack on the right! A bit contrived because of that, but I think this is a 3 star route if the crack were not there. There are very thin slabbing moves past 3 bolts. This route has multiple hard 5.10 and 5.11 moves in a row....[more] Browse More Classics in Colorado
