Description 

Boy, a photo is really worth more than a 1000 words. This is a milk-dud-shaped crag up high on this hillside. It has a nice route, Sheer Lubacy (perhaps named for/by Craig?). The approach is challenging to do...it takes far longer than you'd expect. Aim high.

Getting There 

Try to pick it out, maybe with the assistance of p. 162 of Hubbel's newer South Platte guide or p. 92 of the old Hubbel South Platte guide. You may be able to spy the soft, backwards-C shape crack of Sheer Lubacy.

Climbing Season
