Description 

The Lair is the cave-like feature East of Ra and low on the hill-side. It is just across the tailings field, but it is distinct from the large buttress to the right. A long dead tree presently spans the opening to the cave itself. Four routes are presently on the crag. Bolts on two are visible from the trail. The right-most of these routes provides access to the adjacent buttress and the crags above.

Getting There 

Approach as for Ra and The Halidome. Cross the tailings field at its intersection with the trail. A rough short trail leads to the crag.

Stone Warrior begins in a very tight and left leaning dihedral. An unusual series of moves gains a short clean block that is capped by a broad ledge. A low clip off the ledge allows the rope to be pinned out of the way in launching into the steep crux plate. The plate itself is solid at 5.12b and involves an intricate series of crimps and high steps. This is followed by a good rest and more moderate but pumpy and somewhat tricky climbing to the anchor. Overall SW is an interesting and quite good...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
