  • Description 

    Yet another intriguing rock/large boulder in the complex Dinosaur Mountain area just NNW of Southern Dinosaur Egg. Here lies at least 2 decent routes: Cloud Walker, bolted 10c, and Rehatch, trad 5. To descend, rappel from the top from a bolt/pin anchor. Then down climb a short way to the ground.

    Getting There 

    Approach from NCAR either from Bear Creek and head up the gully E of Southern Dinosaur Egg (and short of Stonehenge/Thought Control 9) to the base. This is the rock just NNW of Southern Dinosaur Egg and SSE of Der Freischutz. Or approach via the Mallory Cave Trail just past Der Zerkle and down a gully towards Bear Creek and past Der Freischutz.

    Rehatch 5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a  Colorado : Flatirons : ... : Northern Dinosaur Egg
    Rehatch is an interesting route with East-facing chimney and South-facing face climbing. From NCAR, hike down to and up Bear Canyon to past Bear Creek Spire (1st strata), go up gully past Southern Dinosaur Egg to Northern Dinosaur Egg. Find a prominent, East-facing chimney. The rating comes from the guidebook, which didn't seem so far off as to change it.P1. Ascend this chimney (unusual for the Denver area), finding occasional jaunts out right of the chimney, pass a chockstone, and belay on a s...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
