This is a smallish rock to the left of McGregor Slab. It has probably caught the eye of anyone on the left side descent of the rock. Deb really was revving to give it a look. So, we wandered over there. This may have another name, it may even have established routes on it. If you know of more info, please share and we'll update it.

FWIW, there are a number of chunks of rock that warrant exploration in the vicinity.

There is room for more routes for sure on this little rock. Some will say it isn't worth the walk. Sometimes, the unknown makes any route worth the walk.

To descend, you can find an easy scramble off the top going north.

Getting There 

Approach as for Left Standard on McGregor Slab. Then traverse westward across the descent gully with some bushwhacking and scrambling. You can also jump onto (or escape) the rock ~125' up.

It is probably the line of least resistance up the south face of this crag.P1. There are two starts, both are runout until 12-15' up. The left start is easier, perhaps 5.6. The right start may be the crux for the entire route in its 15 feet up a slabby section without pro. Once ~12-15', plug in some pro. F...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
