This reorganization was suggested by a user to help with the multiple bolted routes here.

Getting There 

From the parking area, this is the right face of the crag and may not bee seen well until going around the prow. Cross the stream, angle right, and hike up the talus slopes.

Move up left and then back right to the 1st bolt (hidden from ground). There are tricky moves between the 2nd and 3rd bolt.

Cruise easily to chains after pulling past it.If anyone has more details of this climb (name, 1st ascent party and date, difficulty, etc), I will update this route....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
