This is a fun route with some mellow, wide-crack climbing. Climb easily up to a fist crack, use face features to continue up and then tackle a less-than-vertical off-width. After the off-width, climb easily up to a stance where you can clip a bolt (or place a solid piece of gear instead). Clip another bolt and trend right to the anchor.
The route name and first ascent were obtained from "Rock Climbing St Vrain Canyons" by Bernard Gillett.
Towards the left side of the crag, there's a route that has a ring piton down low and a bolt a little higher. This route is the crack about five feet to the right of that one.
Two-bolt rappel anchor at the top. It's also trivial to scramble to the top and walk off climber's right.
Standard rack to a #5 Camalot; maybe add a #4 Friend or #3.5 Camalot for the start. There is a two-bolt rappel anchor at the top.
