Description 

Sunny, on a late June morning. We saw 4 or 5 parties hike past us as we were climbing. It was a Saturday, but I would call that crowded. The rock is good quality granite - great for friction and not rough on my hands.

Getting There 

The approach is the same as other climbs at Jurassic Park. The approach hike took us 20 minutes. Left Hand Rock was the first rock with a line of bolts we saw.

L->R: 

A. Left Dihedral, 9, 1p, gear.
B1. Guilted Willy, 9, 1p, 85', TR.
B2. ?Gilded Lily?, 8, 1p, 90', bolts.
C. Lilies of the Valley, 8+, 1p, 90', gear.
D. Dark Days, 8, 1p, 90', gear.
E. Byron's Ladder, 2, 1p, 95', bolts.
FE. Groove/chimney, 4, 1p, 95', TR.
GE. Face, ?, 1p, 90', TR.
H. T-Rect, 7+, 1p, 70', gear & bolts.
I. Triceratops, 8- PG-13, 1p, 80', bolts & gear?

Thanks, Croy.

Guilted Willy 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  Colorado : Estes Park Valley : ... : Left Hand Rock
This is a squeezed in TR line to the left of Gilded Lily that is not worth bolting but can be worth another lap up this clean slab.Start as for Gilded Lily but traverse straight left at the first bolt to near the arete. Fire up just right of the arete. Find the crux on a rounded knob where you can use 2 fingers on the sole shared hold just above Gilded Lily's 3rd bolt. Stay left on good holds peering to the left on occasion. Head right to [[Gilded Lily'...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
