BETA PHOTO: Little Bo Peep Diploma.


Little Bo Peep Diploma is an outstanding crack through a roof that faces up-gully. Steeper than Bishop Crack, Far Reaches, and Brothers in Arms.

The first pitch of Little Bo Peep Diploma is a steep, left leaning, crack to a hanging belay. A little green, but wild.

Pitch two is the real deal. A thin crack allows passage for the hard through roofs. The summit crag has a bolted anchor that looked chained too.

It may be that the summit anchor is only 35 meters up, so the hanging belay could be avoided by the very strong party.


At the top of the gully between Wigwam Dome and The Sun. The route faces up the gully and can't be seen until past all the other routes.


About 35 meters of finger and hand crack.

Fun route, worth checking out if you're in the area. I did think, though, that the rock was not nearly of the same quality of other hard South Platte classics.
It's the big-grained, sharp, and somewhat friable stuff that is usually avoided. Avoided, that it, unless it has a splitter like this!
