Matt Clark honing his slab skills on Lynne's Route...

Be considerate MORE INFO >>>


It is a decent route. This could be a nice, low level, slab lead with new bolts. As is, it should be considered R/X. If top roping, be very careful of the loose rock during setup.


This route is in the upper half of the slab (see photo). It is better to rappel.

To walk-off, head up through loose rock/gravel. Where possible, head right across the top of the slab then walk down.


3 bolts and tree anchor. The hangers are SMC. The bolts (1/4" buttonheads) are rusted and coming out.

This is the hardest 5.6 I've ever done. If you blow the 1st clip, it will be an ankle buster. It is not a beginner route, and it is best to top rope it.

Nice new bolts and the cord around the tree was in good shape as of 4/28/13. I could see being a little intimidated by this route for new leaders not used to typical slab routes, it is pretty easy though. All 4 of the routes on this part of the wall felt pretty much the same difficulty once past the start.

Good route for the aspiring 5.6 leader but spicy nonetheless! My six year-old son practiced belaying me which was a confidence builder for both of us. Typical South Platte slab in a beautiful setting. Thanks for the new bolts!

The first bolt on this is a ways up. You should be solid at the grade before leading this. It is about 5.6, but I thought the climb to the left had easier slab climbing after a hard start. I am glad the bolts have been updated here. I put a piece of webbing on the tree on 9/21/15.

Was up there today. I cut off some tat on the tree (left a few of the better looking slings) and added a fresh sling. Didn't seem too difficult to the first bolt, but the crux comes before you clip it which is a good ways up. 5.6 leader, beware.
