  • Description 

    A small lonely cliff with only one route, presently. The cliff faces West by Northwest and is overhanging, so it stays shaded until afternoon. The rock is reasonably good, but having seen only one ascent, it still needs a little cleaning.

    Getting There 

    Start on the rdge-line trail heading south towards Pebble Beach from the Cave Complex. Along the way, perhaps half way there, you will pass below a steep wall 15 meters tall. This small crag lies on the ridge line and the highest trail goes right below its base.

    The crag can be recognized by the bottom, where a short, left-facing corner gives way to a well-pebbled face being split on the left hand arete by an undulating hand and finger crack to the top, Northwest Arete. This is the Only climb on the rock at present, known as 'Kat and Dogs.'

    Named after the company for the day. The dogs and Kat were the only ones up there on what was a busy day everywhere else.The climbing starts just left of a left-facing corner at the North end of the West Face of the Rock. Climb in from the left on face moves to avoid some bad rock and to the top of the corner, where a good ledge is reached. Place overhead gear in the crack up and left, get some confidence and go for it. Steep jamming on an uneven and sometimes flaring crack takes you past so...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
