  • 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.

    This is an intriguing line which looks like a mellow romp up a hanging slab. However, due to the approach it is hard to assess this one until you are right on it. It winds up being a full value "sport" climb best done with a bit of gear and a propensity not to fall. Find this one on the West side of North Dinosaur Egg.The approach can take a bit of figuring out. You can approach this via the first pitch of Rehatch, 5.5, on the E face of North Dinosaur Egg from the gully between the...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
