Located near the top of the ravine, you can see it from Trojan Bunny Buttress, but you can't really see it during the approach. The crag has some pretty sweet routes and is definitely worth the hike, which actually wasn't that bad. There are no crowds here for sure.

Getting There 

Just hike, climb, scramble directly up the ravine that is at the 6.8 mile mark. The floods may have changed the approach, and if there is water flowing, you may have to cut up right and skirt around the big headwall. The headwall is easy to navigate if it is dry. You will pass Rodent Rock on your way. Rodent Rock has one bolted route.

Climb around the right side of the flake, and mosey on over to the layback finger crack. Use some balance and a little technique, then punch it to the top. There are no anchors, walk off....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
